With plenty of time being spent lounging poolside and traveling this summer, a good read is as essential as your favorite pair of sunnies, which is why we asked our favorite models what books are in their beach bags this summer. So, whether you’re addicted to your Kindle Fire, or partial to the real-deal page turners, our list of what the models are reading this summer is sure to keep you entertained, not to mention well-read, all summer long!
“I read the entire Hunger Games trilogy, then I read North & South.”
“I just started reading The Woman Behind The New Deal, a new biography of Frances Perkins, the first female secretary of labor.”
“Kurt Vonnegut Bluebeard right now.”
“I just started the Games of Thrones Series.”
“I’m reading the Good Life magazine, a hybrid lifestyle magazine available in French, Dutch, and English. it is really nice and new from Europe! It combines news with lifestyle all over the world. In the summer I prefer reading magazines as they are light to carry to the beach usually. I usually take magazines that are about health, news, science, and psychology and also lifestyle, so I can actually learn something while relaxing!”
“I’m reading a Swedish book by Jonas Jonason. It is called The 100-Year-Old Who Climbed Out the Window And Disappeared. A funny story that brings me through the world’s history the past 100 years.”
“I’m actually in Paris and I’ve been reading The Art of War for Women: Sun Tzu’s Ancient Strategies and Wisdom for Winning at Work. It is very enlightening, and helps with the day to day battles within this industry.”
“I’m finally reading The Secret History by Donna Tartt!”
“I’m reading Zero Limits by Joe Vitale, and of course the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. I’m on Fifty Shades Freed, so good!”
“I’m traveling a lot this summer, and I’ve developed a habit of always reading The Great Gatsby on flights! it’s one of my favorite books of all time.”
“I’m busy reading Moonwalking With Einstein- Jashua Foer which is about memory and the ancient memory techniques the main character uses to compete at a memory championship. It sounds strange, but I like the style of writing, and it’s quite engrossing. I’m also reading In Cold Blood- Truman Capote.”
“I’m reading The Actor’s Art and Craft by William Esper.”
And the most popular book on our model’s summer reading list… Fifty Shades of Grey! Doutzen Kroes, Heidy De la Rosa, Nicole Trunfio, Karen Elson, and Candice Swanepoel are all diving into the tremendously successful trilogy this summer- one hot summer indeed!
