Hi dear friends,
It’s hard to believe that we are entering into another summer season. There’s so much I love about summer, but one of the things I enjoy the most, is a good summertime read. Opening a new book gives me such a unique feeling of optimism, hope, and excitement, and reading for inspiration can serve as such a beautiful form of self-care.
This week, I want to share with you the books I’ll be diving into this summer. If you read them too, let me know! And please add your summer reading recommendations in the comments!
Happy reading, and Happy summer!
