Five for Friday: Five Books for Summer

Five for Friday

T.G.I.F. This post-holiday/travel week got the best of me. Friday could not come fast enough. M is working on Saturday (boo) so assuming the weather is nice, I plan on grabbing a book and hitting the pool. I’ll try and channel what I did all day on our honeymoon — wake up, grab book, go to pool. Here’s what’s on my Summer reading list:

1. Delancey: A Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage – I actually finished this book shortly after my trip to Cape Cod. If you enjoy a fun, easy read, I highly recommend this book. I knocked it out in about 6 hours. It’s the story of a young, newly married couple; she is a writer and he has a dream to open a pizza shop. The book follows the couple’s struggles while opening the restaurant. The recipes are also really fun and I’ll definitely try a few. (I also recommend her first book, A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table.)

2. Save the Date – A runaway bride, a struggling business owner, high-society and a villian. Plus, it is set in Savannah, one of my favorite places to visit. Save the Date sounds like the perfect combination of all things summer.

3. Hard Choices – Disclaimer: I’m not into talking politics. I don’t care to know who you vote for, why, or who you think I should vote for. My father-in-law is hugely into talking politics. I’m sure he is going to read this book and I’d like to read it so I can enjoy the commentary between he and my husband next time we visit.

4. The Vacationers – This book follows a family vacation to an island in Spain and each traveler has brought their own share of baggage. There’s a girlfriend no one likes, a father who has recently been fired, a daughter about to leave for college, and a couple trying to adopt a baby. I can’t wait to see the drama that unfolds while they share a cottage for two weeks.

5. Sous Chef: 24 Hours on the Line – I worked as a waitress all through college and was always fascinated by what went on in the kitchen. I even dated a sous chef at one point. According to reviews, this book will let me “experience one exhilarating day in the shoes of a New York chef.” I think that’s a day longer than I would last in a real kitchen!

What are you reading this Summer?
