T5W: Summer Reads


It’s time for Top 5 Wednesdays, a weekly meme created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to know more or join as well, just go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. I quite like that this week’s theme is Summer Reads, I find those much easier than winter reads. So, without further ado, here’s my selection:

Anything by Morgan Matson

This woman has summer magic in her ink! It really doesn’t matter which book you’ll pick up, you’ll feel a warm breeze of summer air coming your way. I still haven’t read The Unexpected Everything, but SOON!

How to Be Bad by E. Lockhart/Sarah Mlynowski/Lauren Myracle

There is just something decidedly summer-y about a road trip. I can’t put my finger on it, but that’s just the way it is.

How to Be Bad

Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry

People were dressed in short shorts and tank tops because the weather was so warm. That’s summer for you!

Nowhere But Here (Thunder Road, #1)

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

I guess contemporaries just have that summer effect on me a lot of the time. It’s not even that they are all warm and fuzzy and happy all the time, but somehow MLND still screams summer my way.

My Life Next Door

A Good Year by Peter Mayle

Imagine it – the South of France, beautiful weather, rows of wine and the best company. That’s how summer is supposed to be and I think that book even made me smell summer in the midst of pouring rain.

What are some books you associate with summer? Tell me all about it in the comments?

  1. This is a great list! Definitely an inspiring one for my tbr haha 🙂 I tried to think about summer reads for my top 5 and came up with NOTHING. Like void-nada-nothing. Sometimes I have the feeling I don’t read enough, even if I literally spend all my free time reading… Ah well, #bookwormproblems

    • Thank you! I can never come up with more than 2 winter books, so I totally hear you on not remembering books that suit a certain theme. I bet you are reading more than enough though 😉


  2. I still really need to read How to Be Bad– I love reading road trip stories in the summer! I always associate Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta with the summer, mostly because I try to reread it during the summer months every year.


  3. I definitely find myself reading more contemporary books when the summer hits. They just embraces that warm and fuzzy feeling of summer. Of course, Morgan Matson and Huntley Fitzpatrick are my go-to’s for some summer loving and I am so happy I have The Unexpected Everything ready and waiting for me to tuck into.

  4. I haven’t read any of these but I’m certainly going to make this a Morgan Matson and Huntley Fitzpatrick summer since I’ve heard nothing but good things about their books. And I really want to pick up Second Chance Summer as well since I adored The Summer of Chasing Mermaids last summer which was also by Ockler. :3
