What to Read in the Hamptons This Summer

Summer Book List Hamptons 2015

If you are planning to head East this season, don’t forget to grab an easy and fun book to read. Based on my personal experience, part of any great weekend in the Hamptons includes an hour or two of pleasurable reading in between your fabulous charitable events, restaurant explorations and Hamptons nights out. In this Summer Book List 2015 (Hamptons Edition) I collected six most interesting books I recently read or already have on my bookshelf waiting to be read.

#1: Lessons from Madame Chic: 20 Stylish Secrets I Learned While Living in Paris by Jennifer L. Scott. I am obsessed with anything French (including style, literature, and food) and I was always intrigued by the elegance of French women. I think this book might provide some great tips on how to diversify American classic style with Paris chic.

#2: Primates of Park Avenue by Wednesday Martin is the most-discussed book this season because it reveals the “social behaviors of Upper East Side mothers.” I live on the Upper East Side and I am very excited to learn what is going on around me that I am not aware about.

#3: How to Look Expensive by Andrea Pomerantz, beauty editor for Glamour magazine. If there is one topic people discuss in the Hamptons all the time, it’s how people look and what they wear. Andrea’s book will come handy for those of us who wants to look like a million dollar without spending too much cash. I keep coming back to this book all the time as her bite-size beauty tips are so handy.

#4: Cupcakes and Cashmere at Home by Emily Schuman, blogger for Cupcakes & Cashmere. Summer is the best time to think about your house renovations, and Emily’s book will provide you with simple but helpful tips on how to re-decorate your home on a budget (read full review on Emily’s book here).

#5: Lean In for Graduates by Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer of Facebook. Sheryl’s first book, Lean In, inspired me to re-think my position about gender equality and become somewhat more competitive. I hope that her new book will be as inspiring as the first one.

#6: #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, the founder of Nasty Gal. The book combines two genres into one. It is a memoir about how Sophia built her online fashion empire and a guide for those ladies that are still deciding on what to do with their careers (in any field).
