2017 Summer Reading List

Welcome to my Summer Reading List! I have been wanting to read all of these books for quite some time and thought it would be good to read these books over the next few months!

As a kid, I would spend my summers reading books and hanging out around the house.  In fact, I think my mom had to take me to the library at least once a week in order for me to drop off the books I read and pick up more books for me to read.  The last few summers, I have not been diligent with spending time outside or reading books so this summer my goal is to read the above books while lounging in my hammock outside.  

If you look at the books I've picked out for the summer, you'll see that they are all different genres.  I typically stick to Young Adult, but thought it would be fun to read some books that have been on my to be read pile for a while as well as read a few I've had my eye on for a while.

If you are a member of Goodreads, make sure to add me! I am always looking to connect with other readers and see what good things you have on your list!

My Summer Reading List

  • A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman // This book has popped up on several of the blogs I read and has popped up in several lists of must read books, so I thought it must be a good book if it is being recommended by several different people.  It looks like a fun book that has some comedy but also has deals with some serious issues. 
  • Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell // This book has been on my to be read list for way too long, so I decided it is about time I read this one.  I have heard nothing but good things about this book so I am excited to read this one.  
  • Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick // I am a huge fan of Anna Kendrick, so when I saw she wrote a book I picked it up immediately.  I am hoping her writing style is fun and punchy like she is in most of the movies she has played a role in.  
  • Into the Water by Paula Hawkins // This book has received mixed reviews since it released last month, but if it is anything like The Girl on the Train, it must be pretty good.  
  • Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty // I picked this book because I wanted to read the book before watching the TV show.  I have been hearing so many good things about this book that I knew I wanted to read this book then binge watch the TV show.
  • The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty // Honestly, I picked this one because I have been enjoying her What Alice Forgot book and enjoy her writing style.  Plus this is another book that has been on my list for way too long. 
  • Summer Sisters by Judy Blume // I bought this book on a whim last summer at Costco and think it would be a good read for this summer (I mean, it has "Summer" in the title, so it has to be about summer right?!).
  • To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han // This one is a bit random, but I came across Jenny's blog and started following her posts.  I didn't realize she had published any books until several months later when another bookstagrammer shared about the release of her new book! So I would like to see if her writing style is the same as on the blog.
  • Winter by Marissa Meyer // The third book in The Lunar Chronicles, I am hoping this one is as good as the first two that I read the last few months! 

Well that is my list of Summer Reads! Have you read any of these books before? I am hoping to talk about the books with someone after I finish them!
