Going to run through this one real fast, since this week’s been hell in a hand basket for a variety of reasons and I’d like to get back to reading and pretending things are dandy. Because I’m an adult like that.
Top Five Wednesday is a weekly meme created by GingerReadsLainey and hosted by Sam from Thoughts On Tomes over on Goodreads. This week’s topic is top 5 summer reads, and it was after looking through my books to find some that I realized I seriously don’t read that many contemporaries, and those that I have read, aren’t exactly summery. I should change that.
Link me your post so I have some options, please!
It’s not quite your avergae summer-y read, I know, but if you like your summer reading to be a little … spookier, then The Splendor Falls might be the book to try.
This is actually a bind-up of three books, but I read this over a summer a few years back, and I thought it was a pretty nice fit! And, plus, Royally Crushed is contemporary.
And here’s the other contemporary! Super cute, really fast, and definitely summer-appropriate, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe is one of my favorites.
And back to the less-than-contemporaries. It might take place in more of a school setting, but Sucks to Be Me was a really fun read I had over a summer, and I’d like to read it again! (Come on Goodreads, give me that reread option.)
What do you mean this is ridiculously biased and obviously not summer-y and wasn’t even a book I read during the summer? Pshaw! I’d read it again at all times of the year, but I have to say I do wish I had saved Carry On for the months were I need a large book to lose myself in while I wait for the rain to stop. (Florida has some wicked storms, lemme tell you. Especially if you’re in the southern areas.)
And that’s my top five for the week! Back to reading I go.
