Summer Reading List: Book One

Summer Reading List: Book One

I’m a sucker for a good book. And by sucker, I mean once I start reading I pretty much don’t do anything other than read until I’ve finished said good book. If it’s a series I’m totally screwed because that means the house is a wreck, we’re eating cereal for dinner and no one has clean underwear because I haven’t done one ounce of laundry all week. It should also be noted that I am typically running on about three hours of sleep because I can’t just put the book Kindle (or my phone, since I have the Kindle app. Brilliant!) down and go to bed.

I’ve read a lot of books. I spend a lot of money downloading books, much to my husband’s dismay.

“Do you realize you’ve spent like $45 on books this month?”


I’m a fiction kind of girl, myself. I love well-rounded characters and a good relationship story—i.e., love story, which includes varying degrees of sex. 50 Shades? It wasn’t exactly realistic (21-year-old virgins are not having that much sex the first night) but it was worth the read. Christian Grey. Pretty delish, even if he’s 50 shades of a hot mess. Here’s my point: if you need some good, sexy books to read, I’m your girl. It doesn’t hurt that my girlfriends and I have a “Dirty Book Club.” We meet at a bar to discuss made-up relationships/sex lives, while enjoying cocktails. (Well, that sounded… pathetic.)

Anyhow, one of my favorite books to date has been The Mighty Storm. You have to add this book to your summer reading list immediately. Jake Wethers…hottest rock star to ever not live. If he were alive he’d give my boyfriend, Adam Levine, some serious competition. This guy is the “ultimate bad boy of rock” and his character will have you seriously considering finding your own rock star boyfriend.


Seriously. Do yourself a favor and download this book. I should warn you in advance that there’s a second book “Wethering the Storm” so if you’re anything like me, you’ll want to plan on at least two days of solid reading. I didn’t care for the second book as well, but it’s still worth the read. So break out the Kindle and get yourself some Jake. When you’re done reading it, I’d love to know what you thought of it so make sure to drop me a line and let me know.
