Elvis and Me

We are Elvis fans (who isn't) and this book by Priscilla Presley was fascinating.  Can you believe she was 14 years old when her parents let her start dating the biggest star in the world?  It's romantic, it's revealing, and extremely personal.  This one was hard to put down!  Elvis and Me is a delightful dose of pop culture.

Empty Mansions


This was by far my favorite read of the summer.  I spent my entire beach trip talking about it to my family.  This non-fiction account dives into the life of one of America's wealthiest and most reclusive heiresses.  Empty Mansions offers a glimpse into an extraordinary life spanning 105 years.

Love Lives Here

If you're a fan of Bob Goff, you'll love this book by his wife, affectionately known as Sweet Maria.  Love Lives Here is an encouragement to mothers everywhere.  Tales of finding the joy in everything and living with bold faith will leave you inspired.

The Summer Wives


Warning, this one gets a little Rated R at times, but it's romantic and captivating.  The Summer Wives takes you off for a glamorous summer on an island where outsiders aren't welcome and mystery unfolds.  I was gripped by this book!

Lilly:  Palm Beach, Tropical Glamour, and the Birth of a Fashion Legend


If you're a Lilly girl like me, this is a must-read!  I love to learn about those who lead spectacular lives.  Lilly lets you inside the life of the woman behind our favorite summer prints.  I passed on the other books in this stack to friends, but this one gets to live on my coffee table.

What are you reading these days?  Happy Tuesday!
