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!
