My Summer "Reading" List

Updated: Jun 27, 2019

Summer is the perfect time to relax, enjoy the outdoors, and sit down with a good book (or listen to one!). Whether your favorite genre is fiction, biography, romance or science fiction, reading is something that can help enrich every summer.

I have compiled a list of my summer reading "books." Since my visual impairment makes reading in the traditional sense near impossible, the following books are all available for purchase on Audible as well.


A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin

The Farseer: Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Cobb


Becoming by Michelle Obama

Everything That Remains: A Memoir by the Minimalists by Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus

Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person by Shonda Rhimes

Personal/Professional Development

Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts. by Brené Brown

The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are by Brené Brown

Girl Stop Apologizing by Rachael Hollis

You are a Badass by Jane Sincero

If you have not already tried audiobooks - do it! Why listen to the same eight songs on the radio on your commute to work when you could read and grow your mind? You can listen to your favorites outside by the pool without worrying about the glare from the pages or on your eBook reader. Plus, your first 30 days of Audible are free!

There are so many books I want to add to this list and will update this post in the future if I am able to finish some of these and add more! Stay tuned!

Do you have a favorite summer book? Comment below with your summer reading recommendations!
