Our May Reading List

It seems like we make the same goal over and over again: to read more. It’s easy to get caught up in the latest Netflix show or Instagram, so we have to make the conscious effort to read. Thankfully, there are plenty of new and noteworthy books to keep us busy! Our May reading list is comprised of quite a few of them. So grab your beach hat & towel and head for a lawn chair – or a poolside getaway – and dive into one of these great reads!

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

We love a good movie adaptation of our favorite stories and Everything, Everything is next on the list. In it, a young girl is allergic to – you guessed it – everything. But when a new neighbor moves in, will she be able to stay in the confines of her home or play with the danger the outside world presents.

The Romantics  By Leah Konen

This fun and quirky tale chronicles Gael through his first real relationship, heartbreak, and figuring it all out in the midst of his parents separation. But Love is on his side, meddling just enough to mess things up and make them right again. We hope.

Twenty Two: Letters to a Young Woman Searching for Meaning by Allison Trowbridge

This book is a must read for twenty-somethings – or any woman seeking answers. College student, Ashley, receives bi-monthly letters from a mentor figure that delve into a wide variety of topics and hold handfuls of wisdom. Whether you’ve passed the namesake age or not, each page provides encouragement, advice, and lessons learned.

My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella

We’re hooked on this love story/workplace drama. Cosmopolitan says, “You’ll relate hard and root harder for Londoner Katie, whose quarterlife crisis feels even worse thanks to the Insta-perfect people all around her.”

No One Is Coming to Save Us by Stephanie Powell Watts

We can’t wait to read this retelling of The Great Gatsby set in the South. JJ Ferguson returns to his hometown, much wealthier and much different, in pursuit of his high school sweetheart. Plot twist? She’s married and just as changed as the rest of the town appears to JJ. But that doesn’t keep him from rocking the boat.

The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman

Here’s another one you can see after you read; the movie adaptation hit theaters last month. It tells the true story of a Warsaw zoo that saves hundreds of people from the Nazis after it is bombed during World War II.
