The Summer Of Reading

Hello,

Summer is a time for reading. On my Goodreads account, I have a to-read list of over 240 books! Obviously, I won’t be able to read all of them. There just isn’t enough time, though I truly wish there was. Because of this, I decided I’d share some of my favorite books that I’ve read recently while also sharing some of the books I hope to read in the coming months. Reading sets you free. It’s an opportunity to release yourself from the shackles that reality controls and explore alternative worlds. So here we go!

The Summer Of Colleen Hoover?

Colleen Hoover is a fantastic writer and that’s why I’m recommending all of her novels this summer, this includes Slammed – and it’s sequels, Ugly Love, Maybe Someday, and Hopeless – and it’s sequel. Although, I haven’t read Confess yet, I’m still recommending it because of my experience with all the books listed above. 

Each of her books so far have been so unique, Slammed utilizes slam poetry as a major part of the narrative and Ugly Love uses flashbacks to forward the emotional capacity of a main characters. Don’t even get me started on Hopeless. This book is so heart-wrenching and is full of twists that will keep you on edge. 

His Fair Assassin

This historical fiction series is unique and each book follows a female character who has been trained at a convent to be an assassin. Robin LaFevers is a great writer who creates a world seemingly as real as ours, it’s well written and everything that occurs has been so well described that it’s incredibly believable. Through the dangerous missions they are sent on, they always find a way to outsmart the others and get the job done, all the while falling in love and creating allies. 

The Man Who Was Thursday

I can’t say enough about this book by G.K. Chesterton. I’ve been pushing this book into the faces of friends and family who come around looking for recommendations and now I’m doing the same to you. This book will keep you on your toes, it’s a smart and funny novella, a true work of genius that will leave you gasping and wanting more.
