Summer Reads

So with the trip, and a lot of time not watching TV, I’ve been reading a lot of “beach reads”.  Notice the quotations around beach reads?  Well, by that I mean, young adult fiction, chicklit, etc. etc.  Basically, cute little romance books that are easy reads.  So just throwing it out there, don’t expect these books to be intelligent reads.  BUT, you can count on these books to keep you entertained!


Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire.  This story was a little immature for my preference.  Even though the story was set in college, it seemed more like high school.  That being said, I liked the relationship of the two lead characters and the development of their story.

Because of Low by Abbi Glines.  I really like this author.  This was a cute story line.  There is actually a book before this one with some of the same characters.  Easy read.

Like most of these books, I get either the author or the book off the NY Best Seller list.  This book is one that was on the list…and after reading the synopsis, I thought I would hate the book.  However, I bought it because of the great reviews.  This book was so good and addicting!!  A little depressing and not really a good-feeling book, but definitely very good.

True Love and Other Disasters by Rachel Gibson.  I loved this book.  This is another author that I could continuing reading all her books…..however, this one has been my favorite of hers.

Any suggestions of beach books or other good books to read?

I just read The Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin and am starting Gone Girl whenever the library gets it in. Apparently it's new and very popular. Thanks for sharing...I always love finding new books!
