For us in the Northern Hemisphere – summer is coming! One of the most popular lists I see are ‘top beach reads’ or ‘top summer reads’ so I wasn’t entirely surprised to see this be a topic for Top Five Wednesday. That said, I’m pretty excited for this topic! It was definitely a challenge for me since I don’t really categorize my reads in this manner, but it was fun putting together a list! Without further ado, here are what books I think make good summer reads.
Sarah Dessen – I know this is an author and not really a book, but really any of her works are PERFECT for summer. It’s certainly the time of year when I seem to revisit them the most.
Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson – summer + road trip + romance = perfect summer read
Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot – There is just something about this light, fluffy book that I can imagine myself just sitting on a beach or by a pool reading.
Matched by Ally Condie – This is a somewhat fluffy (but not quite) dystopian YA novel. It makes for a quick, easy read.
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin – I think summer is a good time to approach some of the longer books. Even though this is a beast of a book, it’s interesting enough to get you hooked and makes it hard to put down.
