Summer Reading

I’ve decided to post a summer reading list in the middle of July, because I hope to motivate readers who may have gotten off track with their TBR list. At the beginning of May I had a huge list of books I wanted to read and as the summer went on, I slowly started to read less and less. So, I’ve compiled a short list that will (hopefully) provide something for everyone!

Summer is the perfect time to lounge around with a good book. Whether you are enduring the Irish weather indoors, soaking up the sun in the park or enjoying the sun and sea on holidays, summertime is bliss for a bookaholic. Even though it is mid-July, there are still a few more weeks of summer to enjoy; therefore, I’ve compiled a list of fun, thrilling, and heart-breaking books to give you a must have, summer reading list.


The Hate U Give The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas.

    The Hate U Give & When Dimple met Rishi are literally waiting on my nightstand to be read, haha. They’ll most definitely be in my “Read-bookcase” by the end of the Summer, easily! I’ve read way too many good things about those books to not read them.
