5 Summer Reading Finds for the Fearless Minds


Photo by Irving Penn, Vogue, July 2004 Summer means vacation, fun, and adventure. However, a summer of exploration does not have to necessarily include an airline ticket. If you're like me, your books are bae, and getting into a good one with a nice cold glass of something refreshing can go a long way. The best part about reading is that it can be done anywhere, at any time...on a plane, train, or even a picnic blanket in Central Park. That incomparable feeling of geting lost in a good book is way better than watching a marathon of some show that's on all the time anyway. There's so much to choose from but never fear (which you won't because you're fearless), your sistars 💫 are here.

Our team recently got together to discuss options for the summer reading list and we are so excited to share it with you. Whether you like them electronic or are old fashioned (like myself ) and prefer the real thing, these five books are sure to shake up  your soul and take you to far away places without having to spend hundred on a plane ticket ( hey, if you can do both, even better!). Go buy one or all of these gems, pick a beautiful reading spot, and get your reading on this summer! ✨
