4 Books I’m Currently Reading

The end of May is maybe my favorite reading time of the year.

The Summer Reading Guide is out in the world and so many new books are coming out so it feels like the world is my reading oyster.

I’m picking up so many books at the library, my Kindle is loaded, and the weather is beckoning me outside (I love reading on our back deck!).

Here are a few books I’m currently reading!

4 Books I’m Currently Reading

The Anxious GenerationThe Anxious Generation: How the Great Rewiring of Childhood Is Causing an Epidemic of Mental Illness by Jonathan Haidt
I’ve been listening to this audiobook and it’s been the perfect choice as school gets out and summer kicks off because it talks so much about allowing kids to have a play-based childhood instead of a screen-based childhood. And frankly, so much for me to think about in my own behavior and habits, especially when my work is so much online.


Millionaires for the MonthMillionaires for the Month by Stacy McAnulty
This is my current read-aloud to my girls and we’re all VERY into it. Two seventh graders find a wallet and discover it belongs to the founder of a massive social media company. When they return it, she offers them each 5 million dollars. But the catch? They have to spend it all in a month (and no buying assets, investments, or property!).


The Reappearance of Rachel PriceThe Reappearance of Rachel Price by Holly Jackson
I LOVED A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder so I was excited to pick this new one up from the same author. Frankly, it hasn’t truly gripped me yet, but it’s an intriguing story about a teen girl whose mom disappeared when she was a baby. Now, 16 years later, she’s back. But what’s really been happening to her for those 16 years she was missing?


Sylvia's Second ActSylvia’s Second Act by Hillary Yablon
One of the bookstagrammers I follow, Meagan’s Book Club, has been raving about this book so I picked it up from the library and dove in to this story of Sylvia who finds her husband cheating on her so decides she’s going to make a new life for herself in her 60s in New York City alongside her best friend.



And here’s what my team is reading right now!


the unmaking of june farrowThe Unmaking of June Farrow by Adrienne Young
This book had me sucked in from the first few chapters. This story follows June Farrow, a woman in her mid-thirties, living in the small town of Jasper, running her family flower farm. Her life isn’t ordinary though. All of the Farrow women in her bloodline have been known to go mad as they age and June has been holding her breath her entire life knowing it would happen. As she starts to hear and see things that aren’t really there, she starts digging into her mother’s past to try and find answers. If you like a good time travel book, you should definitely check this one out!


big summerBig Summer by Jennifer Weiner
Daphne is loving her new life as a plus-size fashion Instagram influencer, but when an old friend comes knocking on her door after a fight that ended their friendship several years prior, Daphne is shook. Drue, a glamorous, gorgeous, rich socialite who burned bridges with all her friends, asks Daphne to be her maid-of-honor at her wedding. Let’s just say this will be a wedding you won’t want to miss – full of family secrets, and…a dead bride!? This beach read has it all: romance, mystery and suspense, and themes of family, friendship, and body positivity. (Quick warning – there is a brief open-door scene.)



the outlaw noble saltThe Outlaw Noble Salt by Amy Harmon 

Janssen gifted me the audible of this book and I dove right in! This is only the second Amy Harmon book I’ve read- the other one is “What the Wind Knows” for book club last year. I’ve heard about Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid my whole life, but admittedly I don’t know very much about them or their infamous escapades. This book is fiction, but has snippets of fact from Butch Cassidy’s life. Cassidy adopts the alias “Noble Salt” when a twist of fate brings him face to face with a spirited noblewoman determined to reclaim her family’s legacy, Salt finds himself torn between his outlaw code and the promise of redemption. As their paths converge, secrets unravel, alliances shift, and the true meaning of honor is put to the test. With its blend of adventure, romance, and intrigue, “The Outlaw Noble Salt” is a gripping tale of unlikely heroes and the power of love to transcend boundaries.
