Summer Reading Suggestions from Social Media
Sometimes I just want a trashy summer read.
Something light. Something sassy.
A true Beach Read.
Nothing heavy. Not WWII.
No cancer, no conflict, no causes.
No political or social commentary.
Growing up outside DC I've had a lifetime of political. Don't get me wrong. I have passionate beliefs but when you have lived your life both inside and outside the beltway, see scandals and politicians come and go, and both parties sling mud -- AND you also teach Middle School? Enough..... You sometimes just want some mind candy. Something sweet. Summer reading is made for this.
But this girl is lookin for grown up reads.
Not really trashy. Scratch that. It's weird, the older I get the more of a prude I seem to be. In my reading preferences. Lately I seem to skip through the heaving bosoms and pass on the pulsing members. There was a time though.... [insert knowing wink here] After all, I did read fine lit that is Fifty Shades of Fan Fic Meh. All 3. Don't judge me.
What did we miss? Got a beachy read that's not mentioned? Please comment to add your best suggestions! Cheers dears!
Now, I'm going back out to my screened in porch, prop up my feet, sip some iced tea, and get lost in one of these books. And yes, I've been taking a bit of a digital detox this summer. I've been focusing on Mindfulness. Self care. Like watching Bravo.

Would really appreciate some light fun beach reading ideas. From Southern cozy mysteries to Cape Cod scandal. (I’ve read all @elinhilderbrand ) Nothing heavy nothing serious. Any suggestions? 💕💕🙏 #SummerReading #beachreads Thank you Twitter fam & friends! #tlcjat #titlechat pic.twitter.com/7FtMGgNfnq— Gwyneth Jones (@GwynethJones) July 15, 2019
