Summer Reading List


I mentioned last week that I just started Modern Lovers and tend to read lighter books during the summer, so I thought I'd share my reading list this summer. See below and let me know what you're reading in the comments.

1. Emma Straub's Modern Lovers is about a group of college friends settling into adulthood in New York. I also really liked The Vacationers.

2. Wreck and Order: A Novel by Hannah Tennant-More tells the story of Elsie, who flees a dead-end job in New York for Sri Lanka and Paris to create her own form of education.

3. Sweetbitter: a Novel by Stephanie Danler chronicles a year in the life at one of New York's best restaurants.  

4. I really enjoyed Jennifer Close's Girls in White Dresses and can't wait to pick up her latest book, The Hopefuls, which is supposed to be a hilarious look at ambition and marriage.

5. Lisa Owens' Not Working is a book about a girl doing just that while trying to find her true passion.

6. Tuesday Nights in 1980 by Molly Prentiss follows an artist in 1980s Soho.

P.S. This blogger is attempting to read all the books Rory read on Gilmore Girls in the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge.
