It is very easy for me to get lost in a good book. There is nothing better than putting your feet up while the kiddos nap, grabbing an iced tea and losing yourself in literature. I’m sharing 10 books for your summer reading list that will not disappoint!
For as long as I can remember I love losing myself in the adventures of a great book. There are so many amazing authors and the genres are endless.
Now that I’m a mother, the issue is finding the time to read. And I’m sure many of you can agree. I wanted to select a group of books that fit everyone’s needs and are easy to read. Whether it’s a collection of poems, stories about motherhood or a turn-paging thriller.
These are a few of my favorites and I am always recommending to friends and family. I think my entire family finished Lilac Girls in one week! I’m hoping to add a few books to my list before baby #2 arrives. Tell me your favorites!

I don’t even know where to begin with this book. I recommend this for EVERY mother whether it’s your first baby or your fourth. Pamela brings to attention the value of relationships, self-care and maintaining your lifestyle while having a baby on your hip. This truly is a favorite and I’m hoping to go through this again before baby #2 arrives.
You know when a group of mothers can come together from different aspects of life and share their stories? This is The Magic of Motherhood. A collection of essays about identity, adoption, body image, miscarriage, friendship, infertility, anxiety and above all, love.
