My Summer Reads

Marian's Summer Reads

If you didn’t know, today is #NationalBookLoversDay!  As an avid bookworm, I decided to take this opportunity to share my three favorite books of the summer.  Oh, and if you wanna read along with me, I included links to the books on Amazon just in case you wanted to get a copy for yourself.  Let’s get reading!


Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

The latest installment in J.K. Rowling’s world is a little different from the Potter books that we’re used to.  Cursed Child is a play written by Rowling, John Tiffany & Jack Throne, in fact, it’s the play that’s currently showing in London’s West End.  Cursed Child takes the epilogue a bit further and dives into the life of Albus Severus Potter as he enters Hogwarts and deals with being the son of ‘The Chosen One.’

While we’re used to seeing Harry triumphant and brave, I enjoyed seeing Harry Potter take on the challenge of parenthood along with his friends Ron & Hermione, and his wife Ginny.  Plus, it’s always nice going back to Hogwarts, even if it is just for one book.  Important to note that I read through this book in one sitting, three hours straight; I couldn’t put the book down once I started reading.

Dive into another chapter of the Harry Potter world and purchase Cursed Child on Amazon.


The Divorce Papers

2. The Divorce Papers

I have to admit, I’m still reading this book, but so far, so great.  The Divorce Papers is a book written by Susan Rieger and tells the story of a divorce and the lawyer who handles the case.  However, it’s not written like a narrative, readers are given memos, emails, notes, etc. and put together the story from a collection of those documents.

I love books that are written in notes or letters and this book propels the story well using a variety of emails, legal notes, and memos.  It’s funny, genuine, and the first page just grabs your attention.  I’ve got the first edition, but you can still find it on Amazon!


I’m a Catch… Aren’t I?

3. I’m a Catch… Aren’t I?

One of my friends, Lorraine Cambria, wrote a book about her love life and it’s amazing.  Lorraine takes you through a journey through navigating her love life and it’s funny, witty, and relatable.  She writes in a way that makes me feel like she’s telling me these stories over brunch or at coffee and is a great quick read while traveling or for a day at the beach.

Lucky for you, you can find her book on Amazon.  So go get yourself a copy!

And that rounds up my summer reads, any other books that you recommend?  Comment below and I’ll be sure to add it to my reading list.

Until next time!
