Summer Reads

Disclaimer: I rarely preorder books. But somehow, this summer I have preordered 3! All by authors I love to follow and whose books I know I will love without even reading the description. 

Cultivate by Lara Casey

I really enjoyed Lara Casey's first book Make It Happen. She goes through her own personal story, and breaks down how she sets good goals to make what matters happen. Her second book, Cultivate (which releases tomorrow!), is 'a grace filled guide to growing an intentional life'. As someone who struggles with intention, I could not be more excited to read Lara's story and how she cultivates this life. (Bonus: she is offering tons of preorder goodies!)

Gracelaced by Ruth Chou Simons

This is Ruth Chou Simons first book, but I have long loved following her on Instagram and reading her posts. I love her way with words and her beautiful art. I can't wait to read her words in a full book format and delight in the artwork inside.

Glass Houses by Louise Penny

I truly couldn't tell you how long I have been reading Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache series - probably 10 years? (I remember it was around the time Dead Cold/A Fatal Grace came out.) Somehow every book is still magical and mysterious. The characters, the settings, the story - she truly is an exceptional mystery writer and I'm not making any plans for the week this book comes out so I can read it immediately.

Any books you've preordered or are excited to read this summer? Let me know! My summer reading list isn't quite finalized yet :)
