One of my fave things to do on the beach is read. It’s when I can sit down and read a book (mostly) uninterrupted for an extended period of time. I’m someone that likes a mix of reading material in my beach bag, so I’ve included a few novels, some non-fiction, a couple of great bios and some other fun reads.

Here is what I am hoping to read on the beach this Summer (or maybe down in Mexico this winter!).

3 Non-Fiction Goodies

  1. Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear (Elizabeth Gilbert). This book has been on my list since I heard Elizabeth Gilbert speak at a women’s event not too long ago. A good friend told me it is full of inspiring advice without reading like a self-help book. I can’t wait to dive in!
  2. Chasing Likes: The Unflattering Reality of Being an Influencer (Carlee Krtolica). Yes, I am including my own book in this list. At 135 pages, it is an easy read (perfect for the beach) and full of salacious stories and a deep-dive into what it’s really like to be a social media influencer.
  3. How To Be Perfect: The Correct Answer to Every Moral Question (Michael Schur). From the creator of most of my favorite sitcoms comes a hilarious, thought-provoking guide to living an ethical life, drawing on 2,400 years of deep thinking from around the world.

3 Great Autobiographies

  1. Finding Me: A Memoir (Viola Davis). Viola Davis is one of my favorite actresses. I feel like she gives a stunning performance in everything that she does. I also loved her on celebrity IOU on HGTV, so diving into this book about her life is something I can’t wait to do.
  2. We Were Dreamers: An Immigrant Superhero Story (Simu Liu). Simy Liu always comes across as someone who is super cool that has worked incredibly hard but doesn’t take himself too seriously. I love that he is Canadian (like me!) and I think that his story is something a lot of people can relate to.
  3. My Mother’s Daughter (Perdita Felicien). Perdita Felicien is one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram. She is authentic and incredibly stylish. I love her sense of humour and overall outlook on life which is why this book is on my list.

6 Entertaining Novels

I love love love chick-lit novels and this list features some of my favorite authors. There isn’t a book that Emily Giffin has penned that I haven’t loved and Sophie Kinsella hooked me so much with her Shopaholic series that I will read anything that she writes! I’m super excited about these books and gal pals of mine have recommended some of them, too!

  1. The Summer I Turned Pretty (Jenny Han).
  2. Meant to Be (Emily Giffin).
  3. Sari, Not Sari (Sonya Singh).
  4. One Italian Summer (Rebecca Serle).
  5. The Party Crasher (Sophie Kinsella).
  6. Love Your Life (Sophie Kinsella).
