Three Books on My Summer Reading List

Sydne Style shows the best hotels in new york city at nomo soho bedI’ve been doing a ton of traveling recently. It’s the perfect excuse to unwind on the plane, beach or hotel with a good book. This past weekend, I did the latter in my gorgeous room at one of my favorite hotels in New York, Nomo Soho. After three days full of back-to-back meetings, I ordered room service and curled up in bed watching it drizzle over the city as I relaxed and read.

Here are the three books on my summer reading list right now. I’d love to hear what’s on yours. And let me know if you’re interested in a book club column! I thought it would be fun to compare reads every few months. Here’s my reviews so far:

Sydne Style reviews The singles game lauren weisberger new book for summer 2016The Singles Game
I was so excited when Lauren Weisberger sent this one over. She’s the brilliant author behind Devil Wears Prada! This book is centered around a young tennis star, who rebrands her image for her career. Considering Wimbledon is happening right now it’s very timely. It’s such an entertaining, light read that I actually finished it in one day when I was by the pool in Palm Springs! I hear they’re going to make a movie around it and I can’t wait to see the cute tennis outfits!

I’m only half way through but can’t wait to finish this one up on my way to Miami on Thursday. The book is based on a furniture specialist who is sent to France to appraise pieces in a hidden gem appartment. Anything that’s set in Paris gains major points for me! The writing is so descriptive that I can almost see the antiques come to life, as if I’m scrolling through a beautiful feed on Instagram. I’m excited to get more into the mystery portion and she discovers the woman’s past of the house she’s appraising.

I haven’t started this one yet but it’s set in Nantucket and I just visited the Cape last month so I look forward to reading about the New England setting.

If you haven’t read The Girl on the Train yet, I also highly recommend that one. It’s a thriller ala Gone Girl that’s so suspenseful I also had to finish it in a day. I’m very curious to see the movie version with Emily Blunt in October!

    I like reading during rainy days too, with a cup of tea at my side. This post reminded me I should finish my Pokemon Adventures book before it’s due back at the library. Another patron has it on hold so I can’t renew.

    I’m also reading Night Burger by Jason Sarna and Vertoscope : a Villainous Collection. I’m also slowly inching my way through Refund by Karen E. Bender; I was almost half done but the loan period was coming up. I have to re-borrow it again. 🙂

    I’ve heard good things about Girl on the Train. I wish to read it someday.

    Happy reading!

      I really like to read books, as they allow me to spend time usefully! But I am very tired of carrying several books with me to read them. Therefore, I was able to find this site on the Internet, which made it easier for me to read. On it, I was able to find and download a lot of books that interest me to my phone, and now it has become much more convenient for me to read them!

    I often read novels or just classics in my spare time. But sometimes I like books on psychology or something like that to get some advice for myself, or read ideas on how to be successful. Last time I found an interesting book at and it worked well for me
