Hope you are all doing well! A couple of days ago I shared a post all about books I think are perfect to read in the summer months. Today I wanted to share a post all about books that I want to read this summer. There has been so many amazing books released this year that I cannot wait to read as well as summer books I’ve had on my shelves for a while now. Here are the books I want to read this summer!
Verona Comics by Jennifer Dugan
“Jubilee has it all together. She’s an elite cellist, and when she’s not working in her stepmom’s indie comic shop, she’s prepping for the biggest audition of her life.
Ridley is barely holding it together. His parents own the biggest comic-store chain in the country, and Ridley can’t stop disappointing them—that is, when they’re even paying attention.
They meet one fateful night at a comic convention prom, and the two can’t help falling for each other. Too bad their parents are at each other’s throats every chance they get, making a relationship between them nearly impossible…unless they manage to keep it a secret.
Then again, the feud between their families may be the least of their problems. As Ridley’s anxiety spirals, Jubilee tries to help but finds her focus torn between her fast-approaching audition and their intensifying relationship. What if love can’t conquer all? What if each of them needs more than the other can give?”
This seems like the perfect books to read in the summer months for me. A cute romance that covers heavier topics as well. The romance sits on tome of topics such as anxiety, suicidal thoughts and mental health. I really want to read this one very soon to see what I think
The Summer of Us by Cecilia Vinesse
“American expat Aubrey has only two weeks left in Europe before she leaves for college, and she’s nowhere near ready. Good thing she and her best friend, Rae, have planned one last group trip across the continent. From Paris to Prague, they’re going to explore famous museums, sip champagne in fancy restaurants, and eat as many croissants as possible with their friends Clara, Jonah, and Gabe.
But when old secrets come to light, Aubrey and Rae’s trip goes from a carefree adventure to a complete disaster. For starters, there’s Aubrey and Gabe’s unresolved history, complicated by the fact that Aubrey is dating Jonah, Gabe’s best friend. And then there’s Rae’s hopeless crush on the effortlessly cool Clara. How is Rae supposed to admit her feelings to someone so perfect when they’re moving to different sides of the world in just a few weeks?”
I have been meaning to read this one for such a long time now. I am really going to make a point of finally reading this one this summer. I’m sure that I will love it because it seems like a book right up by street. I can’t wait to finally read this one.
Heartbreak Boys by Simon James Green
“Faking the best summer ever is a lot harder than it looks…
At the start of summer, Jack and Nate find themselves dumped as their respective exes, Dylan and Tariq, start up a new relationship together. Not only that, their exes start posting pics on social media, showing the whole world how fabulous their new life together is!
Jack and Nate are reeling. Not to be outdone, they decide to create their own ‘highlights reel’ and show their exes that they’re having an even better time.
But between the depressing motorway service station motels, damp campsites, and an ultimate showdown with the exes, something epic really is happening: Jack and Nate are learning to get over their heartache and open themselves up to new possibilities for love.”
I’m so excited to read this book. I pre-ordered it a couple of days ago and I can’t wait to finally read it. I love all of Simon’s other books, so I can’t wait to see what I think about this. It is set in summer 2020 as it should have been as well and I think I really need a book like that at the minute.
The Summer of Everything by Julian Winters
“Comic book geek Wesley Hudson excels at two things: slacking off at his job and pining after his best friend, Nico. Advice from his friends, ‘90s alt-rock songs, and online dating articles aren’t helping much with his secret crush. And his dream job at Once Upon a Page, the local used bookstore, is threatened when a coffeeshop franchise wants to buy the property. To top it off, his annoying brother needs wedding planning advice. When all three problems converge, Wes comes face-to-face with the one thing he’s been avoiding—adulthood.
Now, confronted with reality, can Wes balance saving the bookstore and his strained sibling relationship? Can he win the heart of his crush, too?”
This is another book that I pre-ordered a few days ago. I can’t wait to see what I think of this one and as the title suggests it is perfect to read in the summer months. I think I am going to save this one for a lovely day where I can sit in the garden and read.
There you have it, those are the books I want to read this summer. What books do you want to read this summer? Let me know in the comments below!
