Hey y’all! I’m Caroline from The Caro Diaries and I’m so excited to be guest posting on Ashliegh’s blog today. I love The Darling Daily. I’m a lifestyle, college and fashion blogger from the Caribbean experiencing the good ol’ USA in college in CT. I believe in the good things in life like shopping, Pinterest, curling up with a good book, the occasional glass of wine and lots and lots of laughter.
For me, nothing beats a rainy or snowy day, comfy pajamas and a great book, except for maybe a ridiculously sunny day, laying out on the beach with a great book. Being lucky enough to live in the Caribbean, I get sunshine and beaches whenever I want (a far cry from what it’s like during the school year in CT), and I’ve perfected what I consider “beach reads.”
Though some of these books are a little bit long (Molly McAdams’ especially – but SO worth it!), these are great for a little romance and heat while you’re out in the sun! These are interesting enough to keep you captivated, but carefree enough that you don’t have to think too much and can give your mind a break. I threw in Ellen’s book because I think she’s genuinely one of the funniest women and I consider her to be very empowering – a theme I continued with Katie Couric’s book, which is a compilation of some of the most inspiring lessons and speeches I’ve read.
To me, these books are the perfect companions for a beach trip or a weekend getaway, or even a Sunday morning curled in bed. I use my Kindle a little too much, and it has become a dangerous accessory for my credit card (it’s still crying from all my “gifts to myself” this semester..). These books, plus any book by Abbi Glines, are the definition of a perfect summer novel. So I hope you guys join me on my venture to read 30 books this summer!
Happy reading, guys! Don’t forget to stop by The Caro Diaries and let me know what you think about my summer reading picks, and send some suggestions my way!
Which book would you read at the beach, Darlings?
