Reading List: Summer 2016

Chic Glamorous and Splendid Blog | Summer Reading List

I am happy to share a couple of books on my summer reading list.  I’m drawn to these titles as each one promises lush prose, rich descriptive sensory details, vivid storytelling and strong characters. 

The Only Street in Paris: Life on the Rue des Martyrs penned by Elaine Sciolino, the former Paris bureau chief for the New York Times.  Sciolino shares her favorite charming Parisian neighborhood filled with lively and vivacious residents.

In The Last Painting of Sarah de Vos by Dominic Smith,  a rare Dutch painting links three lives spanning three centuries through Amsterdam, New York City and Sydney.  

An art history student agrees to forge a rare Dutch painting for a questionable art dealer and the consequences of that decision will haunt her, as she finds herself entangled in deceit and redemption.

In The Naked Shore: Of the North Sea, journalist Tom Blass journeys across The North Sea in search of wild true stories that are captivating and compelling while exploring the wild and rugged history of the sea as told by colorful local coast dwellers in obscure communities.

I’m incredibly excited for summer’s arrival.  How about you?  What’s on your reading list?  Please share, as I would love to hear.

Have the loveliest of weekends!  Enjoy and take care.
