The Thousand Dollar Tan Line, The Goats, and Let The Right One In sound intriguing. I shall check them out! Here’s my TTT about Books Set In Australia
Haven’t read any of these, but Second Chance Summer is on my TBR list 🙂
Love it! There are so many books from your list on my TBR shelf. Makes me even more curious.
oh this is SO COOL. I loved The Summer of chasing Mermaids. ❤ Yuuuus for beachy reads. 😀 I loved Emmy & Oliver for that reason, because they had the beach + surfing + friendships. Also Talon. Who'd have though beaches and dragons could get on so well? :') I really want to read the Sarah Dessen on your list! Hopefully I'll get around to it soon!
Here’s my TTT!
I’ve had Emmy & Oliver for a while now. I NEED TO READ IT!!! 😀
Yay, you got John Ajvide Lindqvist into a list! :))
Yes! I loved that book, and the movie!! 😀
Ohh this is such a great topic! 🙂 I loved The Summer of Chasing Mermaids and Second Chance Summer so, so much ❤
‘Near water’. I love it! ‘Let The Right One In’ look interesting. 🙂 Great list!
I loved 20 Boy Summer! It was perfect!
Me too, it wasn’t what I thought it was going to be, and that’s a good thing! 😀
A setting near a water body is my favourite too and that is why Lucky Harbor by Jill Shalvis made into my list.
Check out my TTT
I love your list!
Thanks Checking out your list now! 😀
I still need to read The Summer of Chasing Mermaids. I have this terrible habit of reading summer books in winter and winter books in summer…
It happens to the best of us! 😉
Two of my faves are my Sarahs lol – Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen & Finders Keepers by Sarah Monzon 🙂 My TTT
Great list! I really want to read the Summer of Chasing Mermaids, Second-Chance Summer and The Thousand Dollar Tan Line. Love me some Veronica Mars, but I’ve never read the books 🙂
You should! I love me some Veronica Mars too! I wish it was never cancelled!
Love this topic and the books you picked!
Ooo! Nice, unique choice! I love it. So many good books on here, too!

I haven’t read any of these, but I have been thinking of picking up The Summer of Chasing Mermaids and Big Little Lies. Great list!
I love Along for the Ride, and Second Chance Summer has been on my TBR for ages! I’ve heard so many amazing things about The Summer of Chasing Mermaids that I think I’m gonna have to add it to my TBR.
You should! 😀
The Good Girl, The Goats and Let The Right One In sound really cool! I still need to read both of the Sarah Ockler books on your list, and one of these days, I’m going to read them. I love your topic this week!
Thanks! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did when you get around to them! 😀
I’ve actually not read any of these!! I’ll have to do some
investigating. Love Sarah Dessen, though. Haven’t read her in forever!
Let the right one in is on my TBR. And I’m really liking the cover of Twenty Boys Summer. Great Topic.
Cool list, we have similar topics – I did go with a summer setting 😉 I really need to read The Summer of Chasing Mermaids, it sounds so good!
The Good Girl is in my TBR pile! And I think i need to check out The Summer of Chasing Mermaids!
Great list! I love your topic, and Along for the Ride is one of my favorite Dessen books. 😀
I also loved the Veronica Mars books and Let The Right One In was one I would kind of like to re-read one day. It has been too long since I read it and I think I’d probably like it even more now.
‘Chasing Mermaids,’ ‘Second Chance’ and Veronica’s story are all books I really want to read! Hopefully at some point I will. 🙂
