My summer break ends in two weeks and then it’s back to school. Noooo. However, it’s going to start raining soon, which is exciting! This week’s topic is about beach reads. When you’re on summer vacation, all you want to do is sip a cold iced tea and read cute fluffy contemporary books which (preferably) take place over the summer. You can reminisce about the summer romances you’ve had over the years (or in my case, the fantasies of them haha) and just relaxxxx. These are a few books I think would make great summer reads!
This is her most recent book. It’s set in the summer and follows a girl whose summer research camp plans fall through so she gets to spend her three months with her friends, gets a part time job and meets a boy because of this job. It’s really cute and fun, a perfect summer read!
If you’re in the mood for a more thought provoking book to read this summer, I recommend this one. John Green’s other work is also fabulous but since this is set a few days before summer break and has an epic, hilarious road trip, this is an ideal summer read for someone who wants more than a fluffy romance.
Do you want cute, adorable, aww-worthy stories which will make you laugh and smile and melt your heart into mush? Look no more, Stephanie Perkins is your new best friend! Anna is my personal favourite (because hello, it’s set in Paris!) but all of them are extremely cute.
Set in the summer holidays, yes, this is a summer romance story. But it’s more deep than that – it stresses on familial relations and friendships, making it a very unique, heartfelt read.
A second Morgan Matson book?! This, like Unexpected Everything, has impeccable writing and great characters. This story, however,
is a lot deeper than the former. It’s a story of how an introvert opens up to people, a story about finding yourself. It’s beautiful and wonderful and I think most people will really enjoy this!
If you’re in the mood for some fantasy, PJO is the way to go! (Unintentional rhyme). Taking place in good old Camp Half Blood, this story will suck you in because of it’s hilarious narrative and keep you chuckling through the duration of five books. If you feel like Percy is too immature for your taste, read the Heroes of Olympus series! They’re both amazing, I just like PJO a teensy bit better. 😉
This is ridiculously adorable and will keep you smiling throughout. The story turns out to be something very different from what you’ll expect after reading the blurb but it’s lovely nonetheless. If you like contemporary romance, this is for youuu.
The story has such a unique concept, separating it from other teen romances. I love how things turned out in the end of the story, not exactly how you expect them to. Friends to lovers is my all time favourite trope, so this was really nice!
Written by a 15 year old, this is one of the sweetest, funniest books I’ve read all year. And it’s non fiction. What?! It’s about how Maya tries out tips and tricks on how to be popular from a book that came out in the mid 50s. I chuckled and I cried and felt all of the emotions. It’s not a fluffy contemporary, or a love story of any sort, but I think it would make an great summer read. 🙂
I just finished this today! It’s a collection of twelve short love stories about very different kinds of people. Because of the diversity in characters, settings and writing styles, there’s sure to be a story for everyone who reads this! Review coming soon. 🙂
Weirdly enough, this summer when I went to the beach, I was reading Game of Thrones. Not sure if that counts as a typical summer read (because Winter is coming hahaha) but I enjoyed it!
What do you plan on reading this summer? Anything different from the typical love story type? Is it summer yet in wherever you’re from?
