Top Ten Books that Feel Like Summer

I’m joining in Top Ten Tuesday once more, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week’s theme is a summer freebie.  I’ve decided to do my list around books that feel like summer–which, for me, means a lot of things.

Some summer reads actually take place in the sunny season–featuring fluffy, light romances that are prefect for reading on the beach.

Others are funny and fun, which put me in the mindset of summer no matter the season.

Something about summer always puts me in the mood for epic fantasy… or just something really long that I can sink into.

And then there are the books that are a summer tradition.  Not a year goes by that I don’t listen to Tolkien on audiobook.

Here’s the list…

Top Ten Books that Feel Like Summer

  1. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before Jenny Han
  2. The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
  3. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
  4. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
  5. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien (because I listen to these every summer on audiobook)
  6. Paper Towns by John Green
  7. Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
  8. Lumberjanes Comics by Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, Shannon Watters, Brooke A. Allen
  9. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
  10. Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson

    To All the Boys is definitely a book I associate with summer and all of Morgan Matson books scream “read me and enjoy me when the sun is out and the waves are crashing against the shore!” Great list!

      Thanks! I completely agree with you about Morgan Matson’s books–all of them are perfect summer stories. 🙂

    Love Lumberjanes, but if there’s one book that reminds me of summer, it’s got to be Bonjour Tristesse! Going to check out all your lovely book recommendations! Thanks!
