Summer Reading Recommendations

The Summer I Turned Pretty Trilogy by Jenny Han
I LOVED this series when I was younger, and it's a quick trilogy to finish in a week!

"For me, it was almost like winter didn't count. Summer was what mattered. My whole life was measured in summers."

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
...or any book by Sarah Dessen! I think this one is one of my favorites from her, she writes such great light summer reads. She's always been one of my favorite authors.

"It's the things you fight for and struggle with before earning that have the greatest worth."

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
I also love Morgan Matson when it comes to summer reading, she has such fun & light books perfect for when you're lounging by the pool.

"A thousand moments that I had just taken for granted - mostly because I had assumed that there would be a thousand more."

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares
When I first saw the movie, I had no idea it was based on a book series. It's a pretty long series, I only made it through the first books. But it's still a great book to have on your bedside table during the summer month.

"Wear them, they will make you feel brave."

What books do you love reading during the summer?


  1. I have been wanting to read the Summer I Turned Pretty books!

  2. Great post, Sydney! I have always wanted to read a Sarah Dessen book but I haven't gotten around to it. I'm currently reading "The Girl on the Train" and holy cow. SO GOOD! It's a mystery/thriller book, though!

    1. Her books are perfect for summer!

  5. Not gonna lie, I just watched TSOTTP on TV the other night and immediately wanted to read it again!

    I haven't read any Sarah Dessen books, but they've been recommended to me a few times. I'm currently trying to finish the Game of Thrones series first though before I tackle anything else :)

    1. Now you've got me wanting to watch it too! And I'm so impressed that you're reading Game of Thrones, I own a few books in the series but it's so detailed!

  6. One of my all time favorites is the Selection Series- a bit of a combination between the Bachelor and the Hunger Games. These books look amazing- I'll have to check them out :)


    1. I've been wanting to read that series, I'll definitely have to pick it up next time I'm at my library!
