Curls and the City

Summer Reading List

This summer is a scorcher and this list is equally as hot.  To help distract from the beads of sweat rolling down my back in this summer weather I have compiled a list of must reads.  With everything from mystery to romance there is something for all of my moods. 

This post may include links that will give me a small commission if you make purchases through them.

She is a girl on the run. Stealing identities left and right.  Just when her last mark corners her on a boat, a life changing storm changes both of their paths. 

Stranded on an island, Sawyer is unsure which is more dangerous, the man who hates her for the crimes she has committed or the mysterious character in charge of the lighthouse that provides the only shelter on the island.

Becoming Supernatural - Dr. Joe Dispenza

This book keeps showing up on my TikTok so I thought why not.  Looking at the cover I was concerned about the subject matter but I was not even close.  Dr. Dispenza simply aims to change you by changing the way your mind works.  To become an alternative version of oneself without the hinderance of the material.
