Books for the Summer

I’d like to suggest some books for the summer, those are the kind of books that you can read while traveling on the airplane or while laying at the beach. I’ve thought of these titles because they are good and pleasant to read.

Into the Water  written by Paula Hawkins, author of the successful book “The girl on the train”. This book is just as good as the previous one, and  this time the story is told through different sides too. I suggested this book because it really caught my curiosity while I was reading, it was really hard for me to leave this book even for few hours.



The Great Gatsby written by Scott Fitzgerald, if you love the classics this is definitely for you. I’m sure you already know the story, you probably have already seen the movie where Gatsby was wonderfully played by Leonardo di Caprio. The Great Gatsby is short, the story is very interesting and well written, it’s definitely a must-read book.


The Secret written by Rhonda Byrne explains the laws of Attraction, it tells you how to attract all the things that you want in your life. You may not “believe in those things”, but I think that this book carries a lot of positive messages that make it worth to read. It made me realize how many negative thoughts I produced, and I wasn’t even aware of them. I’ve started to pay attention to my own thoughts, it was an interesting process. The Secret is definitely worth your time and who knows, maybe you will attract something fabulous in your life!


The Hidden Diary of Marie Antoinette is the queen of France’s story written by her point of view as a diary. This novel tells a widely known part of History through Marie Antoniette’s eyes, showing the human side that isn’t told in history books. When you read about her life, her weaknesses and her fears, in the end you hope for a different finale for her.

Into the Water, Paula Hawkins

The Great Gatsby, Scott Fitzgerald

The Secret, Rhonda Byrne

The Hidden Diary of Marie Antoniette, Carrol Erickson

  1. Great suggestions, Alessia! I have The Secret on my list. 🙂 Great Gatsby is a book we had to read in high school and I enjoyed it. I also liked the movie. 🙂 I also love historical fictions, so that last book sounds interesting! Hope you are enjoying your summer! 🙂
