I am so excited that it is time for me to update y’all on some of my favorite books from the month of June!

While selecting the books that I wanted to read for this month, and later recommend, I tried to pick ones that were the quintessential “summer/beach reads.” Not to worry, though, if that is not your thing! I also managed to sneak on the list a few books that have the perfect killer plot (no pun intended!) or inspirational anecdotes to jumpstart another glorious season in 2015! Enjoy!

Saturday also just so happens to be my favorite day to start a new book. Reading is my constant escape and a really cheap way to transport myself into a vacation mindset. Nothing makes me happier than to sit my bottom down at a local coffee joint, order myself an ice chai latte, and crack open a new adventure! I went on a book-ordering binge a few weeks ago and was fortunate enough to read a few really well written and thought-provoking novels. Check ‘em out below!

Book Recommendation

If you are looking to be inspired by a #girlboss: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) It is no secret that I am a feminist and love reading a success story about a woman in the entertainment industry who is kicking major ass! Not only is Mindy Kaling insanely talented and sharp-witted, she is also smart, driven, and absolutely hilarious.… READ FULL POST
