Summer is here and with it comes optimism, energy and a long reading list. I want to share some of my favourite summer reads and hope you will give me some of yours. What I like to read during the summer are books that are either, fun, thrilling or romantic, or at best all of those things. The summer could be the time you read the heavier stuff but for me and a lot of others I think it`s also then you really have time for page-turners, and to just dive into a book and not come back up again until you finish.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline: this fast-paced sci-fi/dystopia is fun, thrilling, but not as dark as a lot of the books in this genre can be. It`s mostly a tribute to geekyness and pop culture and one of the most entertaining books I`ve ever read.
The Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse): I just started the last book and already I dread the ending of Sookie and her adventures. These books have been my early june-reading for the last few years, and I recommend you to try out the audiobooks. They usually have a mystery that`s solved by the end of each book but there are of course bigger mysteries and storylines through the entire series. It is fun, sexy, exciting and have a lot of love affairs and attractive guys. Eric Northman is probably my biggest literary crush;-) I would not recommend this for the youngest part of the YA-readers as it`s not a YA-book.
Hush hush-series by Becca Fitzpatrick: these are probably my favourite books in my not so favourite-genre Paranormal Romance if that tells you anything:-). These books are dark in a light way and I like that they finish a subplot or mystery in each book because I can`t stand it when these series ends with an cliffhanger that might as well be the end of a chapter.
Perfect Chemistry/Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles: I liked the second book Rules of Attraction even better than the first one in The Perfect Chemistry-series about the Fuentes-brothers. I would recommend them both though. They`re romantic, sexy and intense but maybe not the most unpredictable books in the world. The third and last book might be my summer read this year.
Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally: a really cute story about a girl, Jordan, who loves to play football with the guys, and she`s really good at it too. When the new player on the team catches her attention having her wishing he was more than her teammate, things starts to get complicated.
