Reading, lately

Lindsey LaneComment

Summer reading was always a dreadful task that I had to complete each summer before the start of a new school year. Isn't it funny that now I crave the time to pick up a good book? Well, while at the beach last week, I enjoyed the following three books and all are worth sharing. If you have time, you should definitely take a break for a good book this summer. 

From Beautiful Day  is about The Carmichaels and the Grahams have gathered on Nantucket for a wedding. Plans are being made according to the wishes of the bride's late mother, who left behind The Notebook: specific instructions for every detail of her youngest daughter's future nuptials. Everything should be falling into place for the beautiful event--but in reality, things are far from perfect.

From The Blue Bistro is about Adrienne Dealey has spent the past six years working for hotels in exotic resort towns. This summer she has decided to make Nantucket home. Left flat broke by her ex-boyfriend, she is desperate to earn some fast money. When the desirable Thatcher Smith, owner of Nantucket's hottest restaurant, is the only one to offer her a job, she wonders if she can get by with no restaurant experience.

And a follow up from The Happiness Project which I read a few months ago, Happier at Home (also taken from is about one Sunday afternoon, as she unloaded the dishwasher, Gretchen Rubin felt hit by a wave of homesickness. Homesick—why? She was standing right in her own kitchen. She felt homesick, she realized, with love for home itself. “Of all the elements of a happy life,” she thought, “my home is the most important.” In a flash, she decided to undertake a new happiness project, and this time, to focus on home.


Happy summer reading!
