What are you reading this summer?

The summer is already a month old but as I'm in my first week of vacation I'm curious of what you're reading this summer and what you associate with summer reading. Often people seem to read more light books with less serious content in the summertime than during the winter. I thought about this and found it a bit strange because summer usually means vacation and vacation means more time to read, so why not read the books you feel you don't have time to read the rest of the year? On the other hand it's time to relax and enjoy life so why not just relax you're mind with an easy read? Here's some of the books I want to read this summer:

Rules of Attraction (Perfect Chemistry, #2)Rules of attraction by Simone Elkeles:When Carlos Fuentes returns to America after living in Mexico for a year, he doesn’t want any part of the life his older brother, Alex, has laid out for him at a high school in Colorado . Carlos likes living his life on the edge and wants to carve his own path—just like Alex did. Then he meets Kiara Westford. She doesn’t talk much and is completely intimidated by Carlos’ wild ways. As they get to know one another, Carlos assumes Kiara thinks she’s too good for him, and refuses to admit that she might be getting to him. But he soon realizes that being himself is exactly what Kiara needs right now. (From Goodreads)
City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments, #2)  In this breathtaking sequel to City of Bones, Cassandra Clare lures her readers back into the dark grip of New York City's Downworld, where love is never safe and power becomes the deadliest temptation. (From Goodreads)

Divergent (Divergent, #1) In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.(From Goodreads)

Ready Player One Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes his grim surroundings by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia that lets you be anything you want to be, a place where you can live and play and fall in love on any of ten thousand planets. (From Goodreads).

Before I FallWhat if you only had one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

Samantha Kingston has it all: looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it turns out to be her last. (From Goodreads)
Have you read any of these and what do you plan to read this summer?



  1. Ohh good books for you this summer :D
    I'll just take what ever comes along

  2. Great list!

    I've read Divergent and I absolutely loved it! Definitely recommended.
    Before I Fall has been lying on my shelf for quite some time, I just couldn't get into it. A lot of people keep telling me it's an amazing book so I might try it again this summer.
