As of earlier this week, summer has officially started! So here are 10 books I recommend during these hot months while you’re out vacationing, at the beach, on a road trip, or staying inside trying to beat the heat!
10. The Saga series by Brian K. Vaughn & Fiona Staples
It’s short since it’s a graphic novel. It’s action-packed and fantastical. And I guarantee that you won’t be able to flip through the pages fast enough.
9. If I Fix You by Abigail Johnson
Aaaanangst. Romaaaaaance. Plus this book takes place in the sweltering hot of an Arizona summer, so it definitely has that summer mood.
8. Angelfall by Susan Ee
Literally one of the quickest I’ve ever read a book. So fast-paced, and so goddamn readable. You will not put this down, and you will be thoroughly engrossed. Also, R A F F E.
7. This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills
Emma Mills’ books are just so stinkin adorable, and this one is no exception. The characters and story just make this perfect for the summer. And it’s also a short book, which i know I crave in these summer months because I just wanna read as much as possible while I have my freedom.
6. The Deal by Elle Kennedy
Some hot & steamy times for this hot & sweaty weather. This is hands down my favorite New Adult romance book. This NA read manages to be both funny, romantic, and real af.
5. Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman
THIS BOOK THO. One of my top 3 favorite books of last year. I mean, it’s a YA Western… need I say more??
4. Everything Leads To You by Nina Lacour
Not only is this book CUTE CUTE CUTE, it’s freaking phenomenally written and is just so grounded and good that you will fall in love with it. To me, this is a summertime read because it’s so fluffy yet real, and because it’s set in the summer.
3. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
BOOK DONE FUCKED ME UP. Good luck with this short yet riveting read. These cousins, self-dubbed “The Liars,” spend every summer together and are inseparable. But there is so much more to this book than meets the eye.
2. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
I could not make this list and not include Ari & Dante. Impossible. This novel is perfect. It’s heartwarming and heartbreaking, and I HIGHLY recommend you read it this summer, if you haven’t already read it and fallen in love with those cupcakes.
1. Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
In my opinion, no book screams summer more than Amy & Roger. It’s a road trip book, that takes place in the summer, and is a YA contemporary romance…. YUP. Also this is my favorite Morgan Matson book 🙂
