It’s been a minute since I’ve done a Top 5 Wednesday. My last T5W post was shared last October. I mean, woah. I’ve been out of commission longer than I thought. But that’s all right. Let’s jump back in it then, yeah?
According to Goodreads: “With summer finally kicking off, now is the time to recommend your favorite summer reads, whatever that means to you!”
I did this one last year, but now’s as good a time as any to revisit some of my favorite summer reads! And some of you might be on the same page as me when I say summer = contemporary and romance reads. Can’t forget fantasy, though!
Anna and the French Kiss | Stephanie Perkins
This book isn’t perfect, but it IS perfect for summer. The romance, the Parisian setting/focus on travel, and the drama among friends is basically all that makes up an eventful YA summer. I read this last summer and I plan on rereading it this summer!
The Unexpected Everything | Morgan Matson
Morgan Matson is my go-to author for both YA contemporary romances and for fluffy summer reading. So it’s kind of hard to choose just one book from her. Last year I mentioned Second Chance Summer and Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour. This year my choice will be The Unexpected Everything, which turned out to be one of my favorite summer reads last year!
Paper Towns | John Green
Teenage romance, or the delusions of it, and cross country travel make this book a great candidate for summer reading. I read this one about two summers ago and I really enjoyed the odd characters and adventurous spirit shared between Margo and Quentin.
Carry On | Rainbow Rowell
I may not have liked every single thing about this book, but I certainly did love the relationship between Baz and Simon. And because I’m looking for some great romantic reads during the summer, this one definitely fits the bill. I usually read parts of this book throughout the year, but I think I’ll be rereading the entire book this summer!
The Host | Stephanie Meyer
I’m still really confused as to why I love this book so much, but I reread it almost every year usually during the summer. This year is no different. I plan to do as I always do and skip the first few chapters and head right into the second half of the book, the good part. I love the tone of this book. It fits into the warm/adventurous aspect of YA that I look for during the summer!
That’s all for now! What do you think of my picks??
Thanks for stopping by and until next time ❤
