Style Revel's Top 10 Summer Reads for 2016: Girl Boss

If you have not yet read this book, you HAVE to! It's a must. If you have read it, read it again! It is seriously that good.

This book is all about the founder of Nasty Gal, a women's clothing business. She may be making millions now, but she has not always been so successful. #GIRLBOSS encourages every female out there to be the best they can be at whatever it is they are trying to accomplish, and teaches that you are always learning and growing throughout the best and roughest times of your life. Working towards any goal? This book will give you the mindset to go out there and get it done!

2. Not That Kind Of Girl

Style Revel's Top 10 Summer Reads for 2016: Not That Kind Of Girl

Sometimes women just need to know they are not the only ones going through certain situations in life, and that they are not alone in this unpredictable world.

Not That Kind Of Girl is another awesome and encouraging autobiography that gives women the girl power and encouragement we all need sometimes. Lean Dunham touches on so many different scenarios that we have either been through ourselves, or know someone who has. She'll have you crying from laughter one second and screaming "PREACH" the next.

3. FerVent

Style Revel's Top 10 Summer Reads 2016: Fervent

This book contains some serious character building. Currently struggling with anything in life right now? I think we all are. This book is exactly what you need to lead you to prayer for every situation, good and bad, and how to do it.

"You have an enemy . . . and he’s dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What’s more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn’t general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It’s specific. Personalized. Targeted. So this book is your chance to strike back. With prayer. With a weapon that really works. Each chapter will guide you in crafting prayer strategies that hit the enemy where it hurts, letting him know you’re on to him and that you won’t back down." - Priscilla Shirer

4. The Girl On The Train

5. The Selection Series

Style Revel's Top 10 Summer Reads 2016: The Selection Series

Who said fairytales don't exist? Not these girls. The Selections series will have you hooked from the first book, and you won't be able to stop until they are finished, and then you'll wish they never finished!

The Selection Series is all about the thrilling selection from Prince Maxon on who will take his hand in marriage. 35 lucky ladies are selected from their caste to move to the palace to live until he makes his final decision. However, there is one girl, America, who does not wish to be there because she is already in love with another man. Or is she?

Don't worry it's not all a mushy-gushy love story; there's some thriller action involved throughout!

6. The Choice

Style Revel's Top 10 Summer Reads 2016: The Choice

 Love a good Nicholas Sparks love story? He never disappoints, and you definitely won't be with this sweet summer read!

"How far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?" That's the serious question here. Sparks does such a great job capturing the readers attention through the relationship drama between Travis and Gabby and their pasts. They are new neighbors and Travis is in awe of Gabby, even though he has never been the dating type. Watch these two characters transform their friendship and love, and find out what "the choice" will be!

7. The Good Girl

Style Revel's Top 10 Summer Reads 2016: The Good Girl

Holy moly do we have a thriller for you! Another great, nail-biting, mystery story that will have you finishing the book in one day.

“I’ve been following her for the past few days. I know where she buys her groceries, where she has her dry cleaning done, where she works. I don’t know the color of her eyes or what they look like when she’s scared. But I will.”
Sweet little Mia was just trying to cope with her loneliness after her boyfriend stood her up, once again. What she wasn't trying to do was get abducted and trapped in a cabin far away from anyone she knew. Find out weather her caring mother and hard working detective save Mia and capture the villain!

8. The Husband's Secret

 Style Revel's Top 10 Summer Reads 2016: The Husband's Secrets

We clearly love the suspenseful mystery novels, and this one is just as good as the others! The Husband's Secrets is a novel that tests the trust of love, family, and friendship.

I know the first thing you thought the husband's secret is an affair... but it is so much more than that. This novel will have you jaw-dropped as the plot twists keep coming. See how three women's lives get twisted and interwind as the murder of a young girl gets detected. Most importantly find out the secrets Cecilia's husband writes in the letter made for her to read after his death.

9. My Sunshine Away

Style Revel's Top 10 Summer Reads 2016: My Sunshine Away

Okay we PROMISE this is the last mystery novel. We love that this one is set in the southern state of Louisiana, in Baton Rouge. It just makes it that much more quivering.

"My Sunshine Away, M.O. Walsh brilliantly juxtaposes the enchantment of a charmed childhood with the gripping story of a violent crime, unraveling families, and consuming adolescent love. Acutely wise and deeply honest, it is an astonishing and page-turning debut about the meaning of family, the power of memory, and our ability to forgive." -GoodReads

10. Harry Potter Series

Style Revel's Top 10 Summer Reads 2016: Harry Potter Series

I would hate to say we saved the best for last... but we saved the best for last! I was astonished when one of my friends told me they had never even seen any of the Harry Potter movies, or read the books. I told her she had to read the books first, but really it doesn't matter how you do it, just do it! Even if you have seen every movie a million times but never read the books, READ THE BOOKS! They will leave you feeling magical! 

"We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already. We have the power to imagine better." - J.K. Rowling

We hope you find at least one book, if not all, from Style Revel's Top 10 2016 Summer Reads that you love!
