Top 5 Summer Time Reads

Shana at Bionic Book Worm decided on Summer Time reads today.

Cool.

Will this list look suspiciously similar to my last list?

Who can say?

(Yes. Yes, it will.)

 

Everything Leads to You

Read during: the summer solstice

V6

School’s out, your brother’s gone, and you and your best friend have a rad summer job.

Your brother charges you with “doing something epic”; he doesn’t say what.

You could solve a mystery, fall in love, or shoot a film.

Emi does all of these things.

 

You Know Me Well

Read during: Pride Month!

YKMW

Everything is bad. Nothing makes sense. Your friends won’t listen.

Your uncertain future stalks your every step.

Sad queer kid: you are not alone.

The community is here for you.

 

Scarlett Epstein Hates it Here

Read when: super, super bored

Scarlett

To be fair, who HASN’T written fanfiction about real-life people?

(If y’all fantasize about “how things might go,” THAT’S FANFICTION.)

 

The Summer of Jordi Perez

Read when: you need a pick-me-up

Jordi

If your friends suck, get new ones and go on a [veggie] burger adventure together.

(This book’s outfit descriptions were my favorite part.)

 

Ramona Blue

Read when: life gets weird

ramona blue

“I like [x], but I only date [gender.]”

Summer love with EXTRA CONFUSION.

 

BONUS SUMMER READS

(Who wants to stop at 5!?)

 

American Girls

Read when: your life sucks

L.A. sucks.

Once upon a time, it was even WORSE.

Did someone say “Manson girls?”

 

Summer Bird Blue

Read when: you miss someone special

Welcome to your very own Hawaiian grief vacation.

We hope you enjoy your stay.

(This is by no means a light read.)

 

Since You Been Gone

Read when: you want to try something new, but you’re too scared

Since

Be brave.

Ride that horse.

Forget that your best friend has gone missing.

I’m sure everything’s FINE.

 

The Unexpected Everything

Read after: you’ve finished Since You Been Gone

Unexpected.jpg

YOUR PALS ARE BACK IN TOWN!!

TIME TO GO ON AN ADVENTURE!!

SURPRISE! That adventure involves dogs and fantasy novels.

I don’t make the rules.

 

Bad Kitty

Read during: the worst vacation ever

Bad Kitty

Murder makes a bad vacation better.

As do cats.

Stay away from wax museums and Oreos.

 

SUMMER IS ALMOST HERE.

I haven’t read a good number of these – summer will be the perfect time to start them!
