We love to binge-watch our current Netflix obsession or do a deep-dive on Instagram as much as the next gal, but lately we've been feeling the tug to unplug and take more breaks from technology. Luckily, we're big book lovers around the Fawn Design office, so in an effort to put our phone down and pick up a book instead, we decided to launch the Fawn Design Book Club!
Join us as we read a new book each month and discuss it during an Instagram Live at the end of the month. We'll be reading books that focus on womanhood and motherhood, from memoirs to novels, by a variety of female authors. See below for all the info about our Book Club pick for July, and stay tuned to our Instagram for more details!
Fawn Design Summer Reading List
MORE THAN ENOUGH by Elaine Welteroth
Meet our July pick for the Fawn Design Book Club! This book by award-winning journalist, Project Runway judge, and former Teen Vogue Editor-in-Chief Elaine Welteroth, has been described as, "part manifesto, part memoir," and explores what it means to come into your own—on your own terms. We can't wait to dive in! Get a copy here.
CITY OF GIRLS by Elizabeth Gilbert
You may be familiar with New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert from a little book called Eat, Pray, Love. Her ninth book, titled City of Girls, follows the glamorous, adventurous, and scandalous story of young Vivian Morris in New York in the 1940s. Get a copy here.
BIG LITTLE LIES by Liane Moriarty
If you're as obsessed with the HBO drama as we are, then you're sure to love reading the book that inspired the TV series all about motherhood, marriage, and friendship. Get a copy here.
MRS. EVERYTHING by Jennifer Weiner
This heartfelt novel tells the tale of two sisters, Jo and Bethie Kaufman, over the course of 65 years. Tragedy strikes and threatens to change not only the course of their lives but also their relationship.

MY BRILLIANT FRIEND by Elena Ferrante
Don't let the cheesy cover fool you—this book is a solid gem. Another story that inspired a hit HBO series, My Beautiful Friend is the first book in a trilogy of Neapolitan novels. The pages tell the story of best friends Elena and Lila growing up in the 1950s in Naples, Italy. After you read it, be sure to check out the TV series—you won't be disappointed! Get a copy here.
