Now that it's officially summer (even though, for most of us, it's felt like summer since May), we can discuss summer reading lists! I loveeee to read, and I definitely have the most free-time in the summer to indulge myself in some non-required reading. There's nothing better than spending an hour by the pool--or the ocean, if you're lucky--reading a good book. My reading list is always huge, so I narrowed it down to the seven books that you absolutely cannot miss. There's something for everyone on this list--they vary from feel good books to essays on all things life to commentaries on the Bible.
FEEL GOOD NOVEL: A Man Called Ove by Frederik Backman
HISTORICAL FICTION: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
NONFICTION ESSAYS: The Abundance by Annie Dillard
