♡ My Summer Reading List ♡

This summer, I’ve (finally) had a lot of time to catch up on my reading. My list had been growing pretty long before that, so thank god summer came ’round. Here are the books I’ve been loving this summer, and hopefully, you will too.

1. Ignite Me

The third book in the ‘Shatter Me‘ series by Tahereh Mafi, this book was jaw-dropping. From heart-warming romance to thrilling adventure, this book left me reeling for more. I can actually and truthfully say that it was un-put-down-able (that’s probably not a word). I read it from cover to cover in just 24 hours and let me just say, my feels have not yet recovered. Definitely the top on this list.

2. Mad About The Boy

Another Bridget Jones book, finally! This is the third one in the series by Helen Fielding and was the perfect summer beach read (which is, incidentally, where I read it). Jones is back almost 2 decades later with two kids and several more misadventures. All in all, amazing.

3. 12 Years A Slave

Until this years’ Academy Awards came about, I had no idea that a book like this was ever written, not to mention over a century ago by Solomon Northup! So of course, I ended up reading (and loving) it! Written by a free black man in America, this book will give you the shivers (of delight, of course).

4. Landline

This book by Rainbow Rowell was surprisingly good. I was of the opinion that there are only this many tragic divorce books you could read before getting sick of them, but I was (not for the first time) mistaken. An amazing read about a woman who realizes that her love for her husband is not enough to save their marriage.

5. The Book Thief

A mind blowing novel by Markus Zusak, this book had me totally caught. It is, in short, the story of a young girl who is sent off to a foster family in Germany as World War 2 breaks out. Being a great lover of books makes her ‘The Book Thief’. Truly a well-written masterpiece.

6. Revenge Wears Prada

This long-awaited sequel to ‘The Devil Wears Prada‘ by Lauren Weisberger did not disappoint (unlike most sequels which are a diluted mush of their more famous prequels). The claws-out rivalry is back, and its wearing high-end designers.

Stay lovely!
