Top 5 Wednesday|May 18th, 2016.


Summer Reads:Β This can include beach reads, fun reads, or any book you associate with summer for whatever reason!

1.) Second Chance Summer – Morgan Matson.
It’s a tearjerker, but it’s a summer read nonetheless.

2.) Twenty Boy Summer – Sarah Ockler.
I thought this one was going to be a heart breaker,
but it’s more for than sad. Which is good, because summer
should be happy and fun…not sad…

3.) The Summer of Chasing Mermaids – Sarah Ockler.
This was a fun read. It had it’s serious side, but I don’t think it
was too much. My favorite character would have to be Sebastian!
He was too cute! I think this is the first ever retelling I’ve read,
and it wasn’t over the top. So maybe I’ll try to start reading more of them.

4.) Drowning Is Inevitable – Shalanda Stanley.
This is another one that had me feeling it all, by the end but,
it’sΒ a great story, and if I remember correctly, it was summer time.
I remember them swimming in a lake or something, and most
people only do that during the summer so yeah… :\

5.) The Goats – Brock Cole.
This is a VERY good Middle Grade read. It takes place at a
summer camp. It was also made into a movie called Standing Up.
So if you haven’t already, I think you should read this book,Β and
watch the movie. You won’t regret it! πŸ™‚

  1. Great list! I’ve been looking for a perfect summer read and I haven’t read any of these books yet, I’m definitely checking these out! Thank you for posting this πŸ˜ŠπŸ’™

  2. I just got second chance summer in ebook form last week but I don’t know when i’ll be able to read them.. So many more books to read! πŸ˜†

  3. I definitely agree with Second Chance Summer. There is just something decidedly summer-y about Matson’s books. She’s my go-to person when I want to read something along that line.

    1. I need to hurry up and read her other books! I’ve had Amy & Roger. and Since You’ve Been Gone, for a while now…I should be ashamed! πŸ˜‰

  4. I like the fact that a lot of your titles include the word ‘summer’ – I haven’t read any of them, but have had my eye on all of them for a while so hopefully I’ll get around to them this year.
