Late Summer Reads

Read these books before the new season of your favorite TV show starts again!


ou have been diligent and finished those 10 books from you summer-reading-list. Congratulations! Summertime always means a little bit more reading time. Because we enjoy lazy Sundays in the parks and whole weekends on the beach. But hand on heart, it’s also because our favorite TV shows have a summer break, too. So before they are back, we suggest let’s enjoy few more weeks of Indian Summer reading and relaxing. To get inspired we asked around what Californians are reading right now. If you have a recommendation tag us on Instagram with #CAreads.


“Right now I’m reading anything by Sophie Kinsella. Super light chick-lit summer reading is my jam! And I just read a great novel called Where’d You Go, Bernadette? Which was a clever and hilarious account of an eccentric mom in Seattle by Maria Semple. A funny, and touching read.” – Alanna, Food Photographer & Blogger at The Bojon Gourmet
The Paris Wife. It is about romance, marriage, and divorce of Ernest Hemingway and Hadley Richardson. You should read it if you like dramatic love stories based on real life.” – Olivia, Career Coach






“Right now I’m reading Smart Women Finish Rich. I never studied business or financial planning in school, and I love the approach this book takes to all of those ‘grown up’ things.” – Kelly, Pediatrician & Blogger at A Side of Sweet






Charlotte, A Novel. It’s a real dramatic story of a fantastic and talented painter. The story takes place in Europe during the war, and it’s so well written and captivating that I just couldn’t take my eyes off the book! I shared the book with two other friends who absolutely loved it too and wanted to go to Europe to see her exhibition!” Sandra, Founder of Happy French Gang





“Currently, I’m reading Creative Confidence by Tom Kelly and David Kelly. Amazing book by the founders of IDEO. The other book I’m reading is The 5 Love Languages, which I highly suggest. It’s beautiful non-fiction about various love channels. It’s not only helped me in my own relationship but also with others.” Taylor, Graphic Designer & Blogger at Hello Taylor Brown




“I’m currently reading “The Toltec Art of Life and Death” by Don Miguel Ruiz. It’s an awesome book that gives insight into a greater level of spiritual wisdom and awareness. Shows how a soul is transformed and the struggle between truth (life) and subjective knowledge (death). ” – Giovanna, Nutritionist & Personal Chef, Maker of Live A Lot Chocolate
