Summer Reading List 2019

Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!

Over the past few months of the year, I have often looked at my bookshelf and thought “I want to read ____ in the summer!” Today, I have compiled that small and mighty list for you, which is made up of back-list books that I hope to read this summer!


The first book that I hope to read at some point during this summer is THE ASTONISHING COLOR OF AFTER by Emily X.R. Pan. I am determined to read this one within the next few weeks, as it has been sitting on my shelves for a while now and I have heard absolutely phenomenal things about it. I don’t think I have read one negative review for this book!


The second book I want to read this summer is THE ONE by John Marrs. I semi-recently picked up this one for $15 at Chapters Indigo, but have yet to read it. I actually loaned this one to my aunt a few weeks ago, and she loved it (she told me it was one of the best books she has read in a long time), so I hope it lives up to my expectations!


I then hope to read THE HATING GAME by Sally Thorne. I am going to try to read this one in August, but we will see if I can get it done earlier than that. My mom has read both this book and 99 PERCENT MINE (which I own but don’t plan on reading anytime soon), and like most of you, she preferred this one a lot more.


The fourth book I hope to get to at some point during this summer is WAR CROSS by Marie Lu. I picked this one up on Book Outlet (click here for $10 off your first order!), but it hadn’t really peaked my interest until I watched BooksandLala’s most recent challenge video. Late last year, I read and loved the first two books in the OTHERWORLD series, and this one sounds like it has a lot of similarities to it!


I recently picked up THE STORIED LIFE OF A.J. FIKRY at a local library book sale haul. I was shocked to see a copy in perfect condition at the sale, and I knew I needed to purchase it! I have read some great reviews about this book on Goodreads, and can’t wait to read it!


The last book I hope to read this summer is ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER by Stephanie Perkins. I have read one of Stephanie’s books before and really enjoyed it, so I hope to enjoy this one as much!


Those are the top back-list titles I hope to read at some point this summer! Have you read any of these? Let me know in the comments!

Good Night Book Owls!

  1. Astonishing Color of After and The Hating Game sound so good! Have heard a lot about them. By the way I love that you take pictures of book spines! It’s nice to see what they look like/will look like on a shelf.
