Summer Book Lovin'

Hey everyone!

My post today is all about one of my favorite types of books: Summer Books. Now, to me, summer books are those light, fun, sometimes heart-warming, sometimes heart-breaking books that make you crave warm sunshine, and lapping waves. This year, my summer is longer than it's ever been. Since I'm in university, I end school in April, and because I've chosen to take a year off I don't return to school for sixteen months. Which is a crazy long summer for me to read books during. Here is a list of summer books (and authors) I plan on checking out this summer. 

1. We'll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han

This book has been out for almost a year now, but because I bought the first two in paperback, I chose to wait to read it until I could buy it to match. I'm excited/nervous to see what Belly finally decides!

2. Author: Alyson Noel

I've been an Alyson Noel fan ever since I first read Evermore. She has a few books I consider to be summer books and I'm looking forward to reading them.

3. Author: Maureen Johnson

Maureen Johnson is one of the most hilarious people I know of (seriously, go follow her on Twitter) and I loved her 13 Little Blue Envelopes books. She has a few others which fit the summer books bill, and will probably contain tons of laughs. What's not to love?

4. Author: Sarah Dessen

Although she has way too many books for me to read this summer (unless I wanted to ONLY read her books), Sarah Dessen is on my list because her novels are what I picture when I think "summer books".

5. Au Pairs by Melissa de la Cruz

So, I read the first Au Pairs book about three years ago and I really liked it. The books are all about the beach, cute boys, and learning about life, the ideal book to read on a hot summer day.

That's all I have for now! How do you feel about summer books? Love them? Hate them? Have any great ones to suggest?

  1. I see a lot of books on here I have to read, including some that I hadn't really been aware of before...I see more book buying in my future!

  2. I don't really have a preference really but I really like that you've created a summer reads list :).


Thanks for stopping by! I love myself some comments so if you have one feel free to add it! Hope you have an awesomely book-filled day!
