Summer is the perfect time to take a break, lay out in the sunshine and get into a great book.

On last week’s Global TV segment, I shared eight great summer reads. In the fall, I had included something for every woman: fiction, non-fiction, laugh-out-loud funny, witty, heartwarming, and a heart-pounding thriller. For the summer though, I kept it a  little lighter. We don’t have to be serious ALL THE TIME. 😉 Sometimes it’s okay for Calgon to take us away.

Here is the segment on some great summer reads. As you can see, I also highly suggest you see the movie Joy. How incredible… 😉

Here are the books if you’re shopping.
