So I don’t bring it up here very much, but I am a big reader. I read 1 book a week on average, sometimes more if I’m traveling or have extra time. I’ve been like this since childhood where I would devour Sweet Valley High and Baby Sitter Club books in nearly a day (we lived in the country and sometimes I just didn’t want to play outside). My reading slowed down a little after having kids because I found it hard to take the time to look for a good book with the kids chattering with me in the aisle. But now that I have my Kindle Paperwhite I’m back at it because I can download books in a hot second. I stay up later than I should thanks to this little hobby but I can’t help myself. In my defense, I rarely watch tv.


I know summer is over and that is when a lot of people like to dive into a good novel, but I wanted to share 9 of my favorite recently read books with y’all anyway. Disclaimer: I lean toward girly, easy reads.




Chose The Wrong Guy, Gave Him The Wrong Finger

Big Little Lies

Gone Girl

The Husband’s Secret

Lulu Meets God And Doubts Him

Last Night At Chateau Marmont

The Fault In Our Stars

The Summer We Read Gatsby

The Matchmaker


Looking for a good place to start? I freaking loved The Husband’s Secret, The Summer We Read Gatsby, and Gone Girl.

  5. Jess says:

    I actually thought Gone Girl was a terrible book. I had such high hopes for it, but it was filled with people who had zero redeeming qualities.

  6. I am so excited that you shared this list with us! I am a big reader too, but found that I didn’t read more than a book this summer… ridiculous. Your reading style is very much my reading style, so I cannot wait to try some of these out!!!

  7. Thanks for sharing your list! I read ‘Gone Girl’ and absolutely loved it! I’m so excited for the upcoming movie!

    I LOVED Gone Girl! I started reading it at 11:00 pm and couldn’t put it down until I stopped around 5:00 am. Excellent book choices :)


  10. Jessica says:

    I have read (and loved!) all but two of these. Definitely going to check out the ones I missed. Are you on Good Reads? I’d love to see more of your book recommendations!

  11. Thanks for sharing! I’ve been looking for a new book and The Summer We Read Gatsby sounds amazing!

  13. Chassity says:

    Holy crap, that’s actually worse than me. :)

  15. Chassity says:

    Me tooooo! That rosamund pike is crazy pretty.

  16. Chassity says:

    Let me know which are your favorites!

  17. Chassity says:

    Aw blast. Agree, some crappy people in there for sure but I couldn’t get enough of the craziness. I couldn’t put it down trying to figure it all out.

  18. Chassity says:

    Jillian – on it now – thank you so much for suggesting. Always looking for good ones.

  19. I’ve read quite a few of these and couldn’t agree more! I especially liked husband’s secret and big little lies so I just read moriarty’s the hypnotist love story, not nearly as good but still kept my attention. I am excited to read summer we read gatsby now always looking for good book recommendations. I’m really bad about staying up too late reading book too!

  20. […] for a new book? Here’s a great list to get you […]

  21. Exactly what I need right now, thank you! Gone Girl was fantastic – can’t wait for the movie to come out now. I’ve heard great things about Liane Moriarty, so that’s next on my list.

  22. WOW! All those books look amazing. I love Lauren Weisberger so I will have to read that one.
