What I'll Be Reading This Summer

Friday, June 16, 2017
I know for most of the country, summer is in full swing, and has been for quite a while now, but for me and my kiddos, summer starts today! I am so glad to finally be done with school. Bring on summer. And bring on summer reading! There's nothing like summer reading, whether it's reading by the pool or at the beach, or just reading on a blanket in my backyard. I thought it would be fun to gather together in one place all the books I hope to read this summer. My stack may be a little ambitious, considering how busy our summer is this year, but why not aim high, right? I've divided what I'll be reading this summer into four categories, MMD's Book Club picks, MMD's Summer Reading Guide personal picks, MMD's 17 Books Everyone Will Be Talking About This Summer personal picks and my personal picks. Bring on the books! (All book covers are linked to Amazon for more information! I've read a few already. Those I've read, I provide a (super) short review.)

MMD'S BOOK CLUB PICKS

I belong to MMD's Book Club. I highly recommend it. During the year, we read one book a month. During the months of June, July and August, we read five! Here's what we are reading this summer. 
Loved the Dry!

A Gentleman in Moscow: A Novelby Amor Towles (5 stars)

Welcome to Fashion & Fiction!

Thursday, May 25, 2017
I'm so glad you're here and can't wait to talk all things clothes and books with you!

To start things off, how about a quick tour? It's pretty simple. If clothes make you happy, "fashion" is where you'll want to click. If you are a bookworm like me, definitely click on "fiction". For everything else, click on "everything else". (Psst. There's nothing there yet, but will be soon!)  Finally, if you'd like to know a little more about me, click on "about". Of course, you can always simply scroll to your heart's content.

If you feel so inclined, I would love for you to follow along with me. You can subscribe through Blogger or subscribe by email. I'm on Instagram and Pinterest as well!

I really am glad you're here. Now, let's get to all those clothes and books!
