6+ Recommendations for Your Book Bag

Sorry to have been absent nearly all week, friends! I got on a flight to India on Wednesday and reached early Friday morning and have since been sweating, stuffing myself with delicious food, and fighting off jet lag--not necessarily in that order. ;)
If you're racking your brain over what books to bring with you on your beach vacation, day trip to the sea, or any other instance where you're carrying your beloved book bag, look no further! I've got six books for six different moods to recommend, complete with back-up options for you to investigate and pick up as well. I think these are all perfect summertime reads and all of these books are, in some way or the other, my favorite books. Enjoy! :)

If You Want a Laugh...


Honorable Mention: Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling

If You Want That Summertime Vibe...



If You Want to Swoon...


Honorable Mention: Fool Me Twice by Meredith Duran (This book is historical romance but let me tell you this: it's a loose re-telling of "Beauty and the Beast". If that doesn't have you scrambling to read this this summer, I don't know what will.)

If You Want to be Inspired...


Honorable Mention: Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

I happen to think that the heroines of both these novels are wonderfully inspiring. In Ockler's novel, the heroine has lost her voice and left behind her family to come to terms with the fact that she will never sing again. In Buxbaum's, the heroine has just lost her mother and is struggling to cope with her father's re-marriage and her sudden move to LA. Both of these books are fantastic and romantic and funny but most of all, they are inspiring and made me want to grow and develop and become more.

If You Want a Kick-Ass Heroine...

The Winner's Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski (The Winner's Curse, The Winner's Crime, The Winner's Kiss)

Honorable Mention: Uprooted by Naomi Novik

If You Want to be Whisked Away to a Far Away Land...


Honorable Mention: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
