Summer is in full swing, and we’re hoping our clients are finding some time to relax, unwind, and have a little fun. 

Summer is also a great time to pick up a book (or pop in some earbuds), so we put together a list of what we’re reading this summer in case you need some suggestions!

What Andrew’s Reading

Andrew has been enjoying listening to audiobooks this year. Here’s what he recommends:

Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey

The audiobook is narrated by McConaughey and recounts his thoughts on his life so far. It’s moments of joy and sorrow, successes and failures, and everything in between to hopefully inspire readers to catch more “greenlights” in their life. It’s a #1 New York Times Best Seller and named one of the best books of the year by The Guardian.

Atomic Habits by James Clear

If you’re into self-improvement books, Atomic Habits provides a framework for improvement every day by one of the world’s leading experts on habit formation, James Clear. With an audio runtime of just over five and a half hours, this could be a great listen for a road trip. 

In the Blood by Jack Carr 

What’s summer without an exciting political thriller novel? In the Blood is the latest book in the thriller series featuring James Reese — a former Navy SEAL. The first novel, The Terminal List, comes out as an Amazon Prime series this summer, which Andrew is looking forward to watching.

A Promised Land by Barack Obama 

Politics aside, this autobiography read by President Obama is a great reminder of a season full of change and trials. This book brings Andrew straight back to his 20’s. 

Bryce’s Reading List

The newest associate at Hiley Hunt, here’s what Bryce is reading this summer.

Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know by Adam Grant

With all the recent changes we have experienced in the world, Bryce is hoping this book helps him obtain a new understanding of how to rethink and unlearn currently molded thoughts and beliefs, ultimately allowing himself to build new perspectives and continue to be a lifelong learner.

Game: An Autobiography by Grant Hill

Bryce loved playing basketball and watching Grant Hill, so he’s excited to learn more about Grant Hill’s personal story.

Endure: How to Work Hard, Outlast, and Keep Hammering by Cameron Hanes

As an avid outdoorsman, this part memoir, part motivational book is one Bryce is sure to enjoy. If you’re looking to push beyond your limits, this could be a good choice.

Jason’s Picks

Hyperion by Dan Simmons

A fan of classic science fiction, this one is at the top of Jason’s reading list. 

Hymns of the Republic by S.C. Gwynne 

Jason is also interested in history, and he’s taking a break from World War II history to learn more about the Civil War in this epic account of the dramatic conclusion of the Civil War.

Just Keep Buying: Proven Ways to Save Money and Build Your Wealth by Nick Maggiulli 

This is the first book by a finance blogger that Jason has enjoyed reading. It includes pretty timely advice given the recent returns of the market.

That’s what’s on our summer reading list this year! We’re always looking for new books to read, so drop us a suggestion if there’s something we should check out!
