One of the things we love most about the holidays is having more time to spend doing the things we love without those pesky time restrictions.
As far as we’re concerned, holiday reading is the best thing about summer break (followed closely by mangos of course) and we love nothing more than kicking back poolside and spending the afternoon getting lost in a good book. Whether its chick lit, a wellness guide or even a cookbook, what better way to get inspired and motivated for the year ahead than by making your way through a carefully curated literary list? Aside from busting boredom and boosting brainpower, reading has a long list of benefits including reduced stress rates, improved cognitive function and mental stimulation… so what are you waiting for? Get your book on girl!
Having spent some time compiling one of our own holiday reading lists, we thought we would give you a sneak peek at some of the books you can expect to find on our beach towels this summer in the hope that it inspires you to curate your very own!
