My Favorite Reads of Summer 2016

Summer: the time where students can sleep in late, go swimming, and read all day every day!
I hope that everyone had a good summer and read to their hearts content. I think I read about 20ish books in 3 months! *Surprised Gasp* I’m not really that surprised though. My job allowed me to read for two or three hours everyday and then I would go home and keep reading, so I would finish a book in about three of four days.
Here’s a small round-up of all of my  favorite books that I read this summer. I didn’t write them all down, but I sure am glad that I use Goodreads! (This is not a promotion, I swear! I just really like Goodreads!)
10. The Distance Between Lost and Found by Kathryn Holmeswas a weird find and no book bloggers were talking about it. It touched on some really sensitive areas for me like bullying, love, and friendships.
9. The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin was such a mind twister that it just had to be on my list. There was no stopping it. Daisy Goodwin is such a talented writer. Go check out her second book, which I also loved.
8. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. At the end of this book I was broken. Such a good read about first loves, and honestly, isn’t that what summer is really all about? First love or finding love in unexpected places?
7. Dreamology by Lucy Keating made me so happy and hopeful. You know those books that just do that to you? Well, if you don’t, read this book and you will. If you do know that feeling, still read this adorable book.
6. Frannie & Tru by Karen Hattrup was a great summer read because it took place in summer! I got it the day it came out, and for what the book was about, it had a pretty decent ending.
5. Love & Gelato by Jenna Welch Evans was a cute, fluffy read that had romance and a bit of mystery mixed it. I would suggest that if you’re planning on reading this, make sure you have a couple of hours free and a gallon of your favorite ice cream nearby.
4. The Cresswell Plot by Eliza Wass is super uber creepy, but if you like books like that, check it out on Goodreads or go read my review (HERE)  for more info about it.
3. Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng was such a heart wrenching read. I’m glad that I finished it near the end of what I consider summer. Go check out my review of it HERE.
2. One Second After by William R. Forstchen blew me off my feet. I’m to be able to do a mini review of this one so that it will get more people interested in reading it.
1. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. After reading this, my mind was blown. The only word that I can find to summarize all of my feelings for it is D*MN. I’ll be posting a review of it later this week, probably on Friday or Saturday, so watch out for it.

I’m so excited for fall and for all of the good books that I’m planning on reading. Do what I’m doing, building a fort out of my TBR pile and reading in there. Be careful not to spill coffee on your books though!
Love, Loren
