Summer Reading List

Nothing complements a lazy summer day better than a great page-turner! I tend to read more books during this time of the year because I have a lot of free time on my hands and I am more relaxed. After turning to a few different sources to find some great books, I tend to make a reading list. Today, I decided to share my summer choices with you all. I think every book on this list is perfect for reading on the beach, in your room on a Sunday afternoon, or while flying somewhere for a summer vacation. Anyway, I hope you like the six good reads that I am about to share with you!

1. See Me by Nicholas Sparks

Nicholas Sparks is one of my favourite authors when it comes to romance. This is a novel of obsession, reinvention and a love that defies every expectation. At 28, Colin Hancock is focused on getting his teaching degree and avoiding all the places and people that proved so distractive in his past. But when he crosses paths with Maria Sanchez, his carefully structured life is turned upside down.

2. According to YES by Dawn French

Manhattan’s wealthy Upper East Side has its own rigid code of behaviour. One strictly adhered to by the Wilder-Bingham family. Emotional displays – unacceptable. Unruly behaviour – definitely not welcome. Fun – no thanks. So when Rosie Kitto, an eccentric thirty-eight-year-old primary school teacher from England, bounces into their lives with a secret sorrow and a heart as big as the city, nobody realises that she hasn’t read the rule book. After a lifetime of saying no, what happens when everyone decides to start saying …yes?

3. The Last Act of Love by Cathy Rentzenbrink

This is a true story of a happy family ambushed by loss, the unknown place between life and death, and how to find love and joy in the world even when you know it will never be the same again. This is a book you would want to re-read during a tough time to make you feel less alone. Surely the bravest, most moving book you will read this year.

4. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes 

Now a major motion picture, this is a bittersweet story about love, learning and letting go. Lou Clark knows a lot of things but what she doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane. Will Trainer knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live but Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them know they’re going to change the other for all time.

5. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell 

Cath and Wren are identical twins and until recently they did absolutely everything together. Now they’re off to university and Wren’s decided she doesn’t want to be one half pair anymore. This is not easy for Cath. She has to decide whether she’s ready to open her heart to new people and new experiences, and she’s realising that there’s more to learn about love than she ever thought possible.

6. All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

‘The next The Fault in Our Stars’, this is the story of a girl who learns to live from a boy who wants to die… Theodore Finch wants to take his own life. Violet Markey is devastated by her sister’s death. They meet on the ledge of the school bell tower, and so the story begins. It’s only together they can be themselves but, as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink. How far will Violet go to save the boy she has come to love?

    Me Before You is a beautiful book and Me After You is also a good one for when you finish. Expect tears though! I cried at the book and the film! (Normally it's just the books that get me!)

    Fantastic post! We literally have the exact same taste in books! The only one I haven't read is 'The last act of love' so might need to go out and find that! 🙂

    You definitely need to get 'The last act of love'! It was one of my favourites and it's such a short and easy read but also quite emotional! xo
