Top 5 Wednesday: Summer Reads


Hi all, it’s Lois, hope you are doing well. I’m really sorry that I haven’t been doing Top 5 Wednesday posts for a couple of weeks. I have been so busy in-between being ill so I ended up not being able to post. But, I am back now and ready for another Top 5 Wednesday. Here we go with this weeks Top 5 Wednesday I am going to talk about the summer reads that are on my TBR list.

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly challenge, find the Goodreads group here.

Without further ado, here are my top 5 summer reads.

1) The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

7956260“Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer–they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one terrible and wonderful summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.”

I think this book is going to be the perfect Summer read. I know my plan is to sit by the pool on my holiday and read this book. I think that setting would be absolutely perfect to read this book in and I can’t wait. I am actually doing a giveaway to win a copy of this book at the minute, so please check that out here.

2) Truth or Dare by Non Pratt

25458747“How far is too far when it comes to the people you love? Claire Casey hates being the centre of attention. But if it means getting Sef Malik to notice her, it’s a risk she’s happy to take. Sef is prepared to do anything to help his recently disabled brother. But this means putting Claire’s love – and life – on the line. Because when you’re willing to risk everything, what is there left to lose?”

I have been a fan of Non Pratt’s work for quite a while now. As soon as I found out that she would be releasing a new book early on in June I knew I had to pre-order it. Me and David are planning on having a weekend away at the beginning of June to somewhere nice in England so I plan on giving this book a read whilst we are there.

I am not going to put the synopsis down for this book because of how many spoilers for the rest of the series are in it. I have read the rest of this series throughout the first half of this year. I’m glad I only began reading it this year because I get to conclude the series all in one year. I’m really excited to read this book. I cannot wait to see how the series finishes.

4) Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy

31449227“Ramona was only five years old when Hurricane Katrina changed her life forever.

Since then, it’s been Ramona and her family against the world. Standing over six feet tall with unmistakable blue hair, Ramona is sure of three things: she likes girls, she’s fiercely devoted to her family, and she knows she’s destined for something bigger than the trailer she calls home in Eulogy, Mississippi. But juggling multiple jobs, her flaky mom, and her well-meaning but ineffectual dad forces her to be the adult of the family. Now, with her sister, Hattie, pregnant, responsibility weighs more heavily than ever.”

I pre-ordered this book so that it came to me on the day of release. I was promised release day delivery by Amazon but they said I have to wait until possibly July to get my delivery of the book. I have now  swapped my order completely and it is coming sometime in the next couple of weeks. I’m really excited to read this book!

5) Mosquitoland by David Arnold

9781472218902“After the sudden collapse of her family, Mim Malone is dragged from her home in northern Ohio to the “wastelands” of Mississippi, where she lives in a medicated milieu with her dad and new stepmom. Before the dust has a chance to settle, she learns her mother is sick back in Cleveland.

So she ditches her new life and hops aboard a northbound Greyhound bus to her real home and her real mother, meeting a quirky cast of fellow travelers along the way. But when her thousand-mile journey takes a few turns she could never see coming, Mim must confront her own demons, redefining her notions of love, loyalty, and what it means to be sane.”

Another book I have been meaning to read for a long time now. I must read this book this Summer especially if I have all the months off that I do. If anyone has read this book please let me know in the comments what you think of it!

  1. I really liked Mosquitoland, but I also know that it doesn’t seem to be for everyone. He has an interesting writing style that I think worked for me. I can’t wait to read your review. 🙂
