Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 Summer Reads

May 28, 2019

I don't know about you people but when I think about summer and books - ALWAYS contemporaries come to my mind. Don't ask me why because I don't have an answer. I'm really not a fan of those teen lovey-dovey stories, but things happen.

So today I will list 5 Summer Reads which are on my tbr for the upcoming list.

Let's start, shall we?

1. Bacon pie by Candace Robinson.
As a person who tries to not eat meat on a regular basis when I saw this book I was "What?!". So confused. But then because it was in one of those lists "YA contemporaries something" I made myself click on it for the synopsis. Well, was I surprised? Absolutely. It's about a girl who loves video games and a boy who is a theatre geek. However, due to a showdown they end up into the principle's office and are persuaded to be volunteers into Piggy Palooza Festival, or well - be suspended. And this is how the story begins. I'm intrigued and will give this book a chance.

2. Save the Date by Morgan Matson.

This slowly but surely will become a list of all of the last year's contemporaries. Aghhhhh. In this one we have a wedding - obviously, you can see that by the fabulous cake on the cover. Ideally, on these occasions families are acting friendly and nice but not this time. It's a disaster. Our main character tries to keep everything perfect but is it tho and what is going to happen you can find in the book?

3. If I'm Being Honest by Emily Wibberley.


If this cover doesn't scream summer to you, clearly, there's something wrong.
This probably got me because of it, if I'm being honest. L.A., high school drama, crush. What else do you want? Me - nothing more. I'm sold. 

4. The Rest of The Story by Sarah Dessen.

I don't have any idea how or from where it came but Sarah Dessen's books speak summer to me on another level. They are those typical stories that we've already kinda know what is going to happen but somehow make us still pick it up. This time is about a girl who is sent to spend her summer break with her mother's family at this big North Lake. But the more time she spends there, the more she is beginning to understand that there are two different communities and somehow finds herself being divided as well. Which side will win at the end? 

5. Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart.
Since I've loved We Were Liars, I have to give this author another chance and this book again feels summery?! to me enough to read it. It came out 2 years ago but it still on my radar. It says that is psychological suspense and from what I've heard the writing style is interesting. 

books from what genre you're going to read through the summer? do you like to go for something tough like high fantasy or like me - contemporary?

  1. Oooooh - I too am intrigued by Bacon Pie! I only recently started getting into YA contemporaries, so that sounds right up my new reading alley

  2. I've been wanting to read If I'm Being Honest, I tried reading the first book but I had to many flashbacks to my theatre days and I had to put it down but this next one looks exciting!
