Hey guys! Since it’s been quite a slow reading month for me, due to the fact that I have to write a ten page paper in my English and Composition class, I haven’t been able to really post reviews for books. So, I thought that to give you some new content, to show I’m still here, I decided to do a Top 5 Wednesday Post. Plus, it was about summer, and I couldn’t resist.
My interpretation of Summer Reads for this post is going to be the Top 5 books that I want to read this summer. These are my priority list of summer books that I just have to read before summer is over. Without further ado, let me talk about the books!
- The Island by Elin Hilderbrand: This book is one I picked up from my library for one dollar. It has a sweet simple cover, and it had to do with escaping to an island, which caught my attention immediately. Of course also looking at this book reminds me of summer because of the sand and beach. Not only that, but my I asked my sister to choose a book from my TBR Bookshelf, and this is the one she chose. What’s a better time to read it than in the summer?
- If I Stay by Gayle Forman: I think I’ve read a Gayle Forman book before, but never If I Stay. I have watched the movie at 2 a.m. and cried to it, so if that doesn’t show my love and dedication to this plot, then I don’t know what does. I love the whole plot line of the book, and I;m eager to find out if I’m going to like the main characters as much as I did in the movie. Plus, this is a book I keep putting off, so I want to get to it soon.
- The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks: If you know me well enough, you would know I adore Nicholas Sparks’ books with all of my being. I can’t make it through summer without one. I chose this one specifically because first, it has a bull rider in it, and reminds me of old school love and second, I also watched this movie, and enjoyed it quite a lot. This is going to be a summer of movie to book conversions! Again, hopefully the book is even better, and I just can’t wait to delve into another Nicholas Sparks’ book.
- A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens: I’ve read A Christmas Carol by Dickens and of course loved it. I’ve been meaning to pick up and read A Tale of Two Cities for a long, long time. I wanted to have a classic to read so I could start checking them off of my TBR shelf. I don’t know too much going in to the book, but I’m excited to just kind of blindly jump in.
- The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson: I’m a huge fan of Morgan Matson, and her book Since You’ve Been Gone has held a special place in my heart for a long time. I haven’t really read any of her other books, but I want to, and what better place to start than the newest release? Matson is all about contemporaries, and I’m hoping to fall in love with another one of her books this summer. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to read this book because I’m hoping to win a giveaway for it. If I don’t, I won’t be buying it just yet, since it is new and pricey. I’ll probably end up waiting. Fingers crossed though!
And that’s a wrap on my Top 5 Wednesday. Let me know what you guys are reading so I can broaden my library and TBR. I still have 4.5 weeks of school left, so it’s coming close. Hope you enjoy the rest of your day, and I’ll see you again soon!
