Summer Lovin’ Read-a-Thon: Day 2


Format: select

SummerLovinBadge2Summer Lovin’ runs from July 1-7. This is a no-pressure Read-a-Thon – the point is to have fun and to tackle your summer TBR list. Set your own goals and enjoy participating in posts, challenges, and giveaways! It will all culminate in a 24-hr marathon read-a-thon, from Saturday July 6th at 10am EST, to Sunday July 7th at 10am EST. Sign ups are open through July 6th!

Today is Day Two of the Read-a-Thon, and today’s discussion topic is…

You’re the One That I Want


List your must-have summer reading (the ones you read over and over again) or give us some of your favorite recommended summer reads.

I’m dividing this topic into two sections…

1) Recommended Summer Reading

These are some lighter, what-I-consider summery reads, which I would totally consider re-reading if I had the time (darn you, Goodreads and my mile-long TBR list!!). Definitely check these out if you haven’t read them! (Especially The Art of Wishing – that book needs more love, it is ADORABLE.)

2) My Highly-Anticipated Summer Releases

I’d also like to take this opportunity to list the not-yet-released summer reads that I’m most looking forward to! Since summer officially ends on September 21st, these all come out between now and then, and I am SUPER EXCITED for all of them!

I hope everyone has these on their TBR lists, because they all look like they’re going to be AMAZING!

A novel about the end of days full of surprising beginnings.

The world is living in the shadow of oncoming disaster. An asteroid is set to strike the earth in just one week’s time; catastrophe is unavoidable. The question isn’t how to save the world—the question is, what to do with the time that's left? Against this stark backdrop, three island teens wrestle with intertwining stories of love, friendship and family—all with the ultimate stakes at hand.

Alexandra Coutts's TUMBLE & FALL is a powerful story of courage, love, and hope at the end of the world.

WhyImWaiting_v2

I haven’t heard a lot about this book yet, so I’m really only judging by the synopsis and cover… but wow. I really think this one could to be amazing… and possibly heartbreaking?? I really hope it’s not the latter, but I’m still dying to read it even if it is. That synopsis is just bursting with potential! I cannot wait for September.

What’s your Waiting on Wednesday pick?
