Happy Fourth of July, my fellow Americans. If you're reading this from any other country, Happy Tuesday! The Fourth of July is, for me, one of the days that feels the most like summer. There are barbecues, pool parties, and just time to spend with the people you care about. So, I've come up with a list of four different books set in summer so we can keep those summer vibes flowing!
A Book to Read With Your Best Friend:
things off Sloane's list. Who knows what she’ll find?
Go skinny-dipping? Wait...what?
I'm so glad I've gotten a chance to recommend this book because it's one of my all-time favorites! It's cute, fun, daring, and everything else you could want in a summer book. Morgan Matson does a wonderful job making you feel like you really know and relate to the characters that she creates.
This book is also perfect if you're looking for one to read with your best friend or book club. I actually read it with a few of my friends a couple of years ago, and we had so much fun with it! So if you're looking for a light summer read, this is the book for you!
A Book To Satisfy Your Romance Needs:
unthinkable happens, and the bottom drops out of Samantha's world. She's suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?
This book is another favorite of mine because it's cute, funny, but also tackles some real life issues, which really grounds the book in reality. But, even though it tackles some pretty real issues, there is still a ton of fun and lighthearted moments that really makes the book stand out to me. The characters are all so different, especially in Jase's family, they really keep you on your toes in both an action and dialogue aspect. Overall, check this book out for a great summer romance novel.
A Throwback Summer Read:
form a sisterhood and take the vow of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants . . . the next morning, they say good-bye. And then the journey of the pants — and the most memorable summer of their lives — begins.
I read this book last year (because of a recommendation from my mom) and really enjoyed it. I know this book carries a lot of nostalgia with it for some people, and I could totally feel it in the story. However you are spending your summer, you will be able to relate to this book, probably in more than one way. If you want to read a little more in-depth on my thoughts about this book, be sure to read my full review.
A Mysterious Summer Read:
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.
This book is an AMAZING summer mystery read. The only problem is that you have to go into this book knowing nothing about it. This book is so much better when you go into it completely blind. What I can tell you is that it kept me on the edge of my seat, and I just couldn't put it down. Otherwise, you have to just read it to know more.
Those are my four summer books for July Fourth. If you have read any of them, or are planning to, be sure to let me know in the comments along with any summer recommendations for me!
Every summer since I was little, I’ve gone to garage sales and bought all the books that looked interesting. So I always have something to read.
