10 Books to Order, Pre-Order, and Re-Read in July

As a voracious reader, my book list is a mile long, actually, make that one and a half miles long (or two miles long...).  From coffee table books to self help to light fiction, I figured I'd share with you a list of books I love and hope to love - 'tis the beach read season after all! I can promise you this isn't you're average teacher's summer reading list.

1. Beautiful: All-American Decorating and Timeless Style by Mark D. Sikes: As a huge fan of his work and blog, I can only imagine all of the gems and eye candy this fellow blue and white stripe lover's book has to share. Once I figure out if I'm moving or not, I'll be pre-ordering it - STAT!

2. A House by the Sea by Bunny Williams: Another book to pre-order by a favorite designer, introduced to my by my good friend Cait. I can't wait to see what inspiration she has to share in her latest book for my future Palm Beach house!

3. Roman and Williams Buildings and Interiors: Things We Made: by Stephen Alesch, Robin Standefer, and Jamie Brisick: The designers behind some of my favorite places to eat and visit in the city cae out with a book awhile back. This seems like a perfect treat for me and my coffee table! 

4. The Tools: 5 Tools to Help You Find Courage, Creativity, and Willpower -- and Inspire you to Live Life  in Forward Motion by Phil Stutz and Barry Michels: After having read multiple articles on goop by these authors, I finally picked it up on a book run earlier this year. I'm so glad I did because I've enjoyed coming back to this book every so often. As someone who is always looking to improve or do better, I definitely found this book to be inspiring.

5. Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World by Adam Grant: I have yet to order this book, but it's sitting in my "save for later" basket.

6. Shoo Jimmy Choo by Catey Hill: I have yet to read this book (sorry, Dad!) but I promise you I'll be reading it this summer. Mainly because I'm looking to aggressively save and this book certainly seems to have a tip or two. 

7. Eligible: A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice by Curtis Sittenfield: I have yet to read this book, but I can't wait to start it (hopefully this weekend!). A retelling of any Jane Austen book grabs my attention and makes it an instant beach read classic.

8. Match Me If You Can by Susan Elizabeth Phillips: I love all of these books, especially for the beach and vacations. They are witty, silly, and full of romance -

9. Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella: I love anything she writes, but this book is maybe my favorite book of all time. It's actually one of the first books that kept me up all night reading (and I've had many of those).

10. Lee by Lee Radziwill: Another book on my "to order" list (and the final one I'm sharing with you all), I can't wait to delve further into her world. After reading Happy Times, I almost felt like I was left on a cliffhanger and this book seems like it will solve my woes!

Happy reading!
