Hello and welcome to my blog!
I’m currently 1 week into the summer holidays and I’ve got to say that I’m having a blast. My life no longer revolves around late night studying, early morning wake ups and me drowning in exams. No, instead I can stay up all night reading or playing sims and eating my weight in ice-cream.
And so I figured I’d use my current summery mood to scour my shelfs and find some books that I think are perfect to read this summer 🙂
1- Aristotle and Dante by Benjamin Alire Saenz
I genuinely can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I picked this book up! This was nothing like I expected but my word was it a great read. The writing and character development was great and really tugged at my heartstrings. And although this takes place of a long period of time quite a lot is set in the summer which is a perfect excuse to pick this us.
2- Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann
This book is a romance novel following a biromantic asexusal character and although I personally, wasn’t madly in love with Let’s Talk About Love I think this is a great beach/pool read. I actual finished this on a beach day with my family and it’s such a light and fluffy fast read that my time reading was enjoyable.
3- Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett
I am loving Jenn Bennetts books at the minute and I think Starry Eyes would be great to read this summer. Its a cute romance featuring astrology and hiking/camping. You read about all the great parts of camping without actually having to leave the comfort and safety of your bed! It’s a win/win.
4- The Gentleman’s Guide by Mackenzie Lee
This is a great action packed read for summer following Monty, Percy and Felicity galivanting around Europe in the 19th century getting into all sorts of trouble. Again, lots of travel and excitement without ever leaving your room which really is all I want from a book.
5- Two Can Keep a Secrete by Karen M. McManus
I live on the coast of Spain which attracts a whole lot of tourists at this time of the year and constantly I see people reading thrillers/crime novels and so of course I had to include a YA version of that on this list. This is actually a very recent read of mine and I read it in one whole day. Although the majority was read when I was in school this book would be great for a nice hot day. It’s very fast paced with constant intrigue to keep you turning the pages.
Those are just a couple kind of recommendations for these upcoming months and the heatwaves that we’re all apparently due. Thank you so much for reading 🙂
