8 Books for Summer ...


There's nothing a hot cup of tea and a good book can't solve.

Looking for books to add to your must-read list this summer?

We love Holly's list and so will you!

If you love reading as much as I do, you’ll want to fill your summer with stories.

I try to check out as many genres as possible, from sci-fi to mystery to romance.

If you need recommendations, check out some of my favorite novels.

1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

There are some stories that linger in your mind months after reading them.

For me, this is one of them.

A mystery about a wife gone missing and a husband who doesn’t seem to care.

The point of view alternates each chapter and toward the middle of the book, the structure changes yet again.2

I adore the way the novel flows and despite the disturbing actions of some characters, I was still able to connect with them.

Plus, the ending didn’t disappoint.

2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

You’ve probably watched his YouTube videos or seen his GIFS on tumblr.

John Green finds a way to balance humor and heartache in his young adult novels.2

The Fault in Our Stars is a love story that focuses on two cancer stricken teenagers.

Although the concept sounds depressing, the story contains many lighthearted moments and a strong message about friendship.

3. Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent by Veronica Roth

If you liked Hunger Games, I’d suggest you give Divergent a try.

It’s the first book in a trilogy (I’m eagerly waiting for the final book to be released).

The story follows teenage Tris as she makes the most important decision of her life.

Her society is divided into five different factions, and when she is forced to choose which she wishes to live in, she struggles between going with her family or her gut.2
