Book Recommendations by Category

Updated: Jul 3, 2021

If you caught my 22 Lessons from 22 Years of Life, I talked about how I’ve started reading WAY more. I don’t know about y’all, but I love a good stroll through Barnes and Nobles or scrolling through my recommendations for books on Amazon. I also am guilty of screenshotting books people post on their social media that they’re reading (to save for later).

Obviously, I love to read- but boy do I get overwhelmed. I honestly NEVER pick up a book I wasn’t recommended. It just makes reading so much easier when you know someone else loved it already. Does that make sense?

So where do I go for all of these fabulous recommendations? My girl Julia. I was going to do a Blog post on what I was reading and book recommendations but that just wouldn’t be fair. I can't take credit for anything I read. I swear I have texted her probably 50 times asking for book recommendations, especially in the summer when I’m poolside and need a new good read. I texted Ju las week and asked to have her expertise in this blog post. Of course she agreed to not only doing a book discussion but also a mini photoshoot (did I mention she’s my biggest hype girl ever??)

Check out some of our favorites below and let me know if you have any faves I left out. These are all great and perfect for lounging by the pool, super easy reads that'll have you hooked. I also attached her mega-list of books she still wants to read! Happy reading girls!
