This week The Broke and The Bookish are looking for beach reads! My beach bag will mostly likely not see a single grain of sand this summer because I will be too busy doing grass/patio/porch reading. Sand makes me twitchy. So, my lazy summer days reading will hopefully consist of the following books:
1. The One by Kiera Cass. Honestly, I do not even like this series. But I *must* know how it ends.
2. City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. True story: this book is too big for me to commit to right now! Have you seen it? It’s a monster. I will be reaching for this one when I have a few days off!
3. After the End by Amy Plum. I plan to read this new post-apocalyptic suspense this summer. I have it at home now, so possibly sooner than later.
4. Landline by Rainbow Rowell. I can’t wait for this new book to come out on July 8th.
5. What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick. The ultimate beach read! Look at the cover; they are on the beach!
6. Fool Moon by Jim Butcher. I just started this series and I can already tell that these books will be my go-tos when I am struggling to choose a book. I suspect that Harry Dresden is dependable. I will be able to count on him to be entertaining.
7. The Chapel Wars by Lindsey Leavitt. I can always count on Lindsey Leavitt to deliver a fun, cute read. Perfect for summer.
8. Pointe by Brandy Colbert. I almost didn’t add this to my TBR list because of ballet. Eh. But people keep raving about it and it’s a mystery/thriller. Also, I remembered that I have no interest in high school football but I still I LOVED Friday Night Lights, so Pointe gets a chance this summer! *NOTE* I accidentally forgot to bring a book to work for my dinner break so I grabbed this one off the shelf and read the first chapter. I definitely want to read this book now!
9. The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin. I have enjoyed Zevin’s YA books, but have never read any of her adult works. This one sounds fantastic and I can’t wait to read or listen to it this summer.
10. The Summer of Letting Go by Gae Polisner. I think I need a touching/moving/crying type summer book. From what I hear, this one will do the trick.
What books are on your summer reading list?
