With less than 1 month of class left, and the whole summer right around the corner, we thought it’d be a good time to share some great summer reading. Whether, you have a busy summer planned, with internships, jobs, class, and more, or plan on lounge around the house, reading for pleasure is a great way to spend the down time you do have. It gives your mind a rest from the hard hitting textbooks, but still keeps your brain working. Here is a list of summer reads we think all you MCGs will enjoy.
#1 You and Me, Always by Jill Mansell
This book is not your classic love story- okay well it kind of is. It is about a girl on her 25th birthday. Her mother passed away when she was 8 but left her letters to read each year. The 25th birthday is her last letter, it’s also the day she meet the love of her life. But, there are twists around every corner. You have to check it out to see why her friends think she hasn’t found Mr. Right yet.
#2 The Little Shop of Happy- Ever After by Jenny Colgan
When the beloved Birmingham library turns into a downsized retail complex, Nina misses her job. Until a new business opens up. She wants to own a tiny little bookshop in the Scottish highlands. No computers. Shortages. Out all hours in the freezing cold; driving with a tiny stock of books; to add to all of that, the community isn’t too happy with her.
#3 Pasta Wars by Elisa Lorello
This is a typical everything is right until everything goes wrong type of book. Katie Cravens is leading the life she always wanted. CEO and face of Pasta Pronto,line of frozen food, Katie lives her life with no mess, no surprises, and everything tied up in a neat little package. See everything is right… now here comes the everything goes wrong part- Katie’s fiancé runs off with another woman and a quality control fiasco sends her customers running for the hills. What will Katie do to get her life back to the straight and narrow way she likes it?
These 3 books are easy, quick reads; that just came out in 2016. So, my advice, read them fast before they become movies, because we all know, the book is usually better than the movie.
