When I think about the summer, I think about sunshine, enjoying the late mornings when no one has to be at school, traveling with my family, and reading great books. I can’t share my Georgia sunshine (and humidity) with you, but I can share my recommended reading for the summer.
(1) The Simple Path to Wealth by J.L. Collins
J.L. Collins started writing letters to his daughter giving her financial advice that turned into a blog and now a book. If you have ever wanted to learn more about how to save and invest for your future or teach your children about a simple way to save for their futures, this book is for you. With so many financial “experts” in the world and online, I love that the author is honest with his advice especially when it comes to investing ~ no one knows what the market is going to do – not you or the “experts”. It’s a great reminder to create a plan and then stick with it. Your future you will thank you.
This book has led to great conversations at our house this summer. It’s a book I plan to read again and again.
(2.) Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch
You will fall in love with Lina. She is a young girl who travels to Italy after her mom dies. When Lina arrives in Tuscany, she is given her mom’s journal from her time in Italy. Lina experiences Italy through her mom’s eyes and learns about love along the way. This book is recommended for teens, but I loved it! My niece was reading the book this summer and it had such a fun cover I decided to read it too. If you are looking for a quick read at the beach while walking through Italy, this book is for you!
Netflix released the movie from this book this summer. I have to admit I was very disappointed. The book was, in my opinion, so much better!
(3.) Hacking the Code: The Ziggety Zaggety Road of a Dyslexic Kid by Gea Meijering
Kees (pronounced Case) is a 5th-grade dyslexia boy who loves pranks. This book is a fun read with your kids. I love that the author included real-life events and feelings that many of our dyslexic kids have and how he copes with the challenges of being dyslexic. Out of all the books I’ve read over the year with my daughter, this is my favorite. I love the characters, the humor, and the illustrations (some of the best I’ve seen in a children’s book).
You can read Hacking the Code for free when you are a member of Amazon KindleUnlimited. Great summer deals on KindleUnlimited. Try it out this summer! Free for 30 days or $4.99 for 2 months.
(4.) How Are You, Really?: Living Your Truth One Answer at a Time by Jenna Kutcher
Jenna is hands down one of my favorite mentors. She is not afraid to be herself, even on Instagram. I love her heart and it comes through in this book. Jenna has written this book as a guide to help all women reframe their lives while finding their own sense of joy and fulfillment in a world where the noise is loud and tells us who to be. Jenna helps you unpack what’s going on inside of your head and find your way back to a life that you can truly call your own. Give it a try, Jenna won’t disappoint!
Honestly, it’s one of my favorite books!
