Summer is Here!
Another month, another issue of Precommendations! June brings us summer, adventures, and of course, new books! Summer is one of my favorite reading seasons, because not only is there more time to read, the books also reflect what I'm doing in real life. So, without further adieu, here are the books that I'm looking forward to the most in June.
Words in Deep Blue, by: Cath Crowley
I am really excited about this new contemporary release. It's about a girl who had a crush on the boy she worked with at a bookstore years ago. She moves away for a while, but when she returns, she goes back to the bookstore to work with Henry again. And then I assume through a few shenanigans, they fall in bookish love and I get that happy feeling on the inside. This book sounds AMAZING! Bookstores, books, love, what's not to enjoy? (Also the fact that the cover is literally a bunch of open books. I need a copy. Now.)
Follow Me Back, by: A.V. Geiger
have made for the world’s best episode of Catfish takes a deadly turn…
Can I just say, this sounds like a cutesy romance novel turned down Knockturn Alley. It's about a teen pop star who is terrified of his fans, especially after a fellow star is murdered by one of his own fans. He starts stalking one of his superfans online, and they arrange to meet in person. I love the concept of this story, and I am very excited to get my hands on it. Goodreads also informs me that the book will also be told through tweets, direct messages, and police reports. I give that a big thumbs up.
Summer Unscripted, by: Jen Klein
Girl needs to figure stuff out. Enter: drama.
Another book that sounds adorable! (I get in a contemporary mood this time of year. Don't worry, it will go away eventually.) I love the fact that this has a script/play vibe to it. (Although I don't think it is actually written in script form. Darn) It's about a girl who has a new crush on a boy the summer before her senior year. She applies for a summer job with him, she meets another boy who has a complicated past. This book sounds like the perfect read to chill out on the beach and just relax with.

One benefit of summer was that each day we had more light to read by.
