I’ve surprisingly had a decent amount time to read this summer! If I’ve accomplished my to-do list for the day and my little guy is down for a nap, I can usually snag an hour or so of reading time each day.

Summer time is my time for easy, lighthearted reads. These reads also work great for a sleep-deprived new mom such as myself who can’t remember what she ate two hours ago, let alone keep up with an intricate story line.

Here are some books I have on my list to read this summer as well as a couple great reads I’ve added for new moms:

The Sh!t No One Tells You

Every word of this book is true. Dawn Dais finds humor in the struggles of a new mom. I literally laughed out loud the whole way through this book.

Surprised by Motherhood: Everything I Never Expected About Being a Mom

This is a beautifully written book about the journey into motherhood by a woman that never anticipated becoming a mom. This book lifted me up on my worst days as a new mom and made me believe I was a superhero just like all the other moms out there.

The Weight of Blood

I just finished this book and loved it! It’s a thriller that starts of with a girl who disappears in a small town in the Ozark Mountains. The book shows the dark side of small towns where the fierce loyalty between citizens can sometimes turn out to be a bad thing.

The Widow

This is thriller written from multiple perspectives that tells the story of a woman whose husband recently died. A reporter is trying to learn the truth about the death of the husband and the crimes he committed. I’m currently reading this and it’s pretty interesting so far.

One Plus One

I have been planning to read a Jojo Moyes novel for months now! This was the only one available for e-book rental from the library so I decided to go with it. It’s a love story about a single mom. Seems like a simple concept, but the reviews say it’s hard to put down.

The Rumor

Elin Hilderbrand is known for writing beach reads. This book takes place in Nantucket and is about a woman who is rumored to be having an affair with her best friend’s husband.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web

The latest book in the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series. I devoured the first three books. I’m interested in seeing what this book is like since it is written by a different author.
