I posted a first article about summer reads earlier in May, but I got more ideas so I decided to make a new edition of it! Please feel free to share your own recommendations below!
Paper Towns by John Green
Blurb: I can’t believe I never put this book in my Sunday Recs! Well here we go. If you have never heard of it, the main character of this (awesome) novel, Quentin is going through the end of his senior year high school, and has always had a crush on his neighbour and popular girl Margo. They used to be friends when they were kids, but now they barely speak… Until one night Margo pops up at his window and asks him to be partners in crime. Quentin has the best night of his life, and is ready to change his life, but in the morning, Margo is gone…
The Weaver’s Riddle by Claire Marie Lucas
Book blurb: Four mysterious books resurface in the town of Little Wolf Green, and everyone seems to be fascinated with them. Scott’s bookstore is about to close down because they need money, but Anya can’t give it up, and decides to follow the quest from the books, bringing along a group of friends… But they are mysteriously sent to another world where the king has wings and the women are missing. To complete the quest, they have no choice but to help them… If you haven’t read this book, you should definitely check it out, it was one of my favourite 2015 reads!
The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan
Book blurb: Percy grew up with his mother and her unpleasant husband whom he calls Smelly Gabe. He keeps having trouble at school, and has to transfer to different schools every year. On a visit to the museum, his maths teacher turns into a monster and attacks him… But after they go out of the museum, no one remembers her. But Percy is sure of what he saw. Over the summer, strange things happen again, and Percy moves to Camp Half Blood, and discovers why he grew up without a father. There might also be a prophecy concerning him…
Don’t jusge this series by the fact that they are supposed to be children books, they are totally worth the read!!
The Selection series by Kiera Cass
Book blurb: If you haven’t heard of The Selection, it is a dystopia story where the country of Illea (located is North America) is divided into different castes, with attributed activities. America Singer is a Five, which means she has to be an artist. Except the prince has come of age, and is in search of a wife: among all the people of the realm, thirty five girls are selected to come to the palace, and the prince has to choose his wife among them. To her surprise, America is selected, and a new life starts for her, not as easy as you could expect, between the Southern and Northen rebels, and the jealous other selected… I know there are mixed opinions about this book, but I definitely enjoyed it, and I think it would make a pleasant summer read!
Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
Book blurb: Elizabeth just got out of a relationship and wants to get her life back on track. In order to do this, she decides to travel to three different places over the course of a whole year, and this book is the story of it. It is such an inspiration to see her do what she wants and evolve through her life and struggles… I really enjoyed this book!
Wonder by R.J. Palacio
Book blurb: Maybe it’s just because I read it over the summer, but I think it’s ideal for a summer read! It’s a book that is both light and powerful, and I highly recommend it anyway… Wonder is the story of Auggie, a kid with an ugly face, and it is also so much more than this. I started it without really knowing what to expect, and oh boy, it was such an amazing surprise! I think it is definitely a must read, this book will change you. Witty, clever, moving and overall beautiful, you have to read it, and what better occasion than this summer?
Inherited by Freedom Matthews
Book blurb: Inherited will be released on July 12th, and if you preorder it now and send your proof to Oftomes, you will be automatically entered for an amazing giveaway! I received an e-ARC copy of this book, and you can check my review here. It’s a book about pirates, which means beach and boats and the sea, and that inevitably reminds me of the summer… And it is also an amazing sorry of curse and friendship and love, etc. I hope you’re all anticipating it!
And that’s all for this week, I hope you enjoyed! Feel free to comment with some of your summer recommendations!
