All the hot girls are reading this summer, and even if you think that’s not your thing, I’m here to tell you it’s never too late to start! I have fond memories of partaking in all kinds of summer reading challenges and book clubs at my local library growing up, so allow me to be your tour guide through this summer’s reading list. 

Even if you are not a reader by nature, there are various reasons to pick up the hobby. Firstly, it’s a great relaxation hobby or wind-down at the end of the day. When I’m in the mood to do nothing, I like the option of picking up a book rather than the remote. 

I also notice how much it helps with increasing my attention span. At first, reading may make you realize how bizarre it feels to do something for a prolonged period of time without reaching for your phone. When you become absorbed in a book though, you find yourself not wanting to check your phone so you don’t lose your momentum, exercising your attention span. 

Reading can also be educational. I enjoy books where I know I’m putting time into gaining some type of knowledge, whether that be historical, spiritual, political, or self-improvement. Not that there’s anything wrong with a good fiction novel! And don’t you worry, I’ve got several recommendations for those listed below as well.

Without further ado, here is 2024’s Hot Girl Summer Reading List:

Unoffendable: How Just One Change Can Make All of Life Better, by Brant Hansen

Starting off strong: there’s nothing hotter than personal growth. The author, Brant Hansen, is an American radio personality and author with a hilarious draw-you-in writing style. If you’re a Bob Goff fan, you will enjoy Brant Hansen. I could not get enough of his practical advice delivered through insightful stories. Hansen holds the hot take that there is no place for anger in this world, arguing that taking offense and holding grudges should go out of style. Buy it here.

The Fury, by Alex Michaelides

After reading The Silent Patient and The Maidens by this author, I couldn’t wait for his third book to come out, and it definitely lived up to my expectations. Between the Greek island setting, dazzling movie star characters, and delicious classic whodunit plot, this is the perfect poolside read. Buy it here.

The Inheritance Games, by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

This mystery series feels very young adult in a nostalgic way and was a refreshing shake-up to my typical reading rotation. If you’re a The Mysterious Benedict Society fan, I daresay you’ll love this. Buy it here.

How to Stay Married: The Most Insane Love Story Ever Told, by Harrison Scott Key

Similarly to Unoffendable, this book’s author is witty. I found myself laughing out loud and devoured this book in about three days. This is the true story of his wife repetitively cheating on him amidst his unrelenting mercy and refusal to quit on her and their marriage. I wouldn’t even know how to categorize this book. Comedy? Dark Romance? Whatever it is, I thoroughly enjoyed the contrast of this fairly depressing story with his dry humor. But spoiler: there is a happy ending! Buy it here.

The Housemaid, by Freida McFadden

My book club is usually split on our opinions of the books we read, but this was a unanimous hit. A fast-paced read with no shortage of twists and surprises, I’ve never met anyone who didn’t like this juicy thriller. And I have good news: there’s a second Housemaid book, as well as a third being released June 11! Just in time for hot girl reading. Buy the first installment here.

You’re Not Enough (and That’s Okay): Escaping the Toxic Culture of Self-Love, by Allie Beth Stuckey

This book is pink – need I say more? It might be the only self-help book I actually recommend. Allie Beth Stuckey isn’t afraid to shoot you straight, but always in a loving, big sister way, demolishing the idea that society’s version of self-love is anything but deceptive. Buy it here.

The Scent Keeper, by Erica Bauermeister

With a wistful, deserted island setting and a nostalgic, fairytale energy, this book will transport you (perfect for a summer read). If you loved the movie Nim’s Island growing up, you will love The Scent Keeper. Buy it here.

Counting the Cost, by Jill Duggar

If you were a 19 Kids and Counting fan growing up, this book will undo everything you thought you knew. Jill Duggar spills all the tea on growing up with 19 siblings, in a religious cult, and being raised on a popular reality TV show. If you want to go down a Duggar rabbit hole, her sister Jinger Voulo wrote a similar book about her own experience. Buy it here.

Unreasonable Hospitality, by Will Guidara

I bought this book without reading a summary and was surprised, but not unpleasantly, to find that it’s about hospitality in the restaurant business. Hospitality is such an it-girl trait, and I found myself taking notes of the small things that go a long way in the world of hospitality. This book made me realize the restaurant business is a lot cooler than I thought! If you’re in need of a break from your go-to genre or want to brush up on hospitality tips, give this a try. Buy it here.

Evie Print Magazine

With countless topics ranging from health to culture to style to relationships, an Evie print magazine is the perfect summer read. What’s better than a read dedicated to telling women the truth about how to thrive in today’s society? Buy it here.
