Summer is so close.
My summer starts in just a few days, and I can’t wait! For no school and lots of ice cream, of course, but mostly for days upon days of reading. Today I’ll be sharing a few books that I definitely want to read this summer.
Although we all know I won’t read all of these?? And we also know that I’ll read other books too, because that’s just the mood reader inside of me. 😉 Still, I’m excited to set a few reading goals for the months ahead.
Some of these books have been on my TBR for ages, others are new discoveries, and some are even rereads! Can I get through a post without talking about rereads…I think not. But all of them are books I really want to read this summer.
1. Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, by Becky Albertalli
How have I not read this book?? Or seen the movie?? These are all questions I want to ask myself and I really don’t have an answer to them.
‘I’ve been busy’ is not an excuse. I have been looking forward to this book for quite some time now, so I’m 50000% sure I’ll be reading it this summer. (And then watching the movie.)
I CAN’T EXPRESS MY EXCITEMENT. I may finally read it. XD
2. Basically everything Adam Silvera has written??
After reading They Both Die at the End, I really want to read the rest of Adam Silvera’s books. I know they’re going to tear my soul apart, so I’m not sure why I’m voluntarily reading them. All I know that TBDATE was one of the best (and most heartbreaking) books I’ve ever read, and I want more of those feels!
3. Reread Harry Potter
It has been much too long since I reread Harry Potter! I try to reread it pretty frequently, but I think it’s been at least a year since I last picked it up. I need to get back into the wizarding world this summer. 😉
Also, who wants to have a Harry Potter movie marathon with me?? Because that is something on my non-book summer bucket list.
4. A Court of Thorns and Roses Series, by Sarah J. Maas
I’ve heard SO many things about this series…some really, really good and some really, really bad.
Since I’ve never read it (I checked it out from the library a couple months ago, but didn’t get around to reading it), I think it’s time that I decide for myself what I think of it. I really don’t know if it’ll end up being something I like, but I might as well give it a try! Especially since I’ll have a lot of free time this summer.
5. The Emily Series, by L.M. Montgomery
If you know me, then you know that my ALL time favorite book is Anne of Green Gables. (And the rest of the series is also amazing!) I can’t believe that I haven’t read the Emily series, written by the same author as the Anne series.
I love classics and being transported back in time…oh, I just can’t wait to read it. 🙂
6. Divergent Series, by Veronica Roth
Could I be any later to reading Divergent?! Did anyone else read that like Chandler Bing…because I did. Yes, I’m much too late to the party, but better late than never, right?
Like with the ACOTAR series, I have my doubts about these books. It’s been a long time since they first gained popularity, and I’ve already had part of the ending spoiled for me. But still. It’s Divergent. I should read it…right?
7. Allll the contemporaries
The ones above are just a few out of the dozens of contemporaries I have on my Goodreads TBR. Some of them are fluffy, some deal with important issues, and all of them look like my kinda book. 😉
Maybe I’ll do mini review posts throughout the summer of contemporaries I’ve been reading? Let me know if that’s something you’d like to read.
Don’t laugh. I know, I know. It’s Twilight.
I literally have no expectations for this book. I’ve legitimately heard nothing but bad things about this series. BUT, I’m going to have a lot of free time this summer…and I’ll be really bored…and shouldn’t I just see what they’re about?
For Cedric Diggory’s sake. Tear.
9. Reread To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before Series
I’m slightly stealing this item from Elizabeth’s list, shhh. BUT, I have so much love for this series, I can’t even begin to explain it to you. It’s 500% the perfect contemporary. ANDD it’s becoming a Netflix movie (or series, I’m not sure yet) which is actually one of the best things to ever happen, ever.
I need to reread this series now.
10. We Were Liars, by E. Lockhart
I’ve heard quite a few things about this book- it seems that people either love it or hate it. I’ve been meaning to read it for a long time now, so maybe summer will finally be my chance! I have a feeling I’ll enjoy it.
And that concludes my summer TBR! There are many more books I’m hoping to read, but these are just a few of the main ones. 😉 My last day of school is this Friday, yay! Summer is so close I can almost taste it. XD
Have you read any of the books on my TBR, and what did you think of them? What do you want to read this summer? I’d love to chat with you in the comments.
