I went on a massive reading binge throughout the summer, and I managed to get a ridiculous amount of reading done. And they were all good books! I didn’t read a single mediocre or worse book throughout the summer months, which I’m taking as a personal achievement. And because I’ve been so lax with getting my reviews written and posted, I thought I’d share with you my 6 favourites.
I’m only including the books I read after I went to Mexico, so from mid-June onwards, up until the end of August, because that was when my reading kind of pattered off again and I kind of stopped reading…again.
I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson – this book just confirmed that if Jandy Nelson writes it, I will read it. Wow. ALL THE FEELS. This left me broken, deflated, uplifted, all in the turn of a page. Easily one of the best reads of the year for me.
Mud Vein by Tarryn Fisher – totally took me by surprise! Do not let the cover fool you, this is an intense mystery/thriller that will leave you guessing til the very end.
One by Sarah Crossan – I’ve already written about my thoughts on One, so I won’t go into too much detail. But this is a book for you if you want an emotional rollercoaster.
Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Alertalli – Whatever hype you’ve heard surrounding this book, you need to believe it. Seriously. It’s that good.
Because You’ll Never Meet Me by Leah Thomas – YES. Just a blissful YES. It’s not a sweet, fluffy read, but my goodness, it’s worth reading.
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick – I’m so cross with myself for waiting so long to read this book, but I’m also so happy that I waited until summer to read it. Seriously, the most perfect time to pick this one up.
