Summer’s here in full swing, and today we want to share our top 5 books we want to read this season! So without further ado, let’s take a look at our most anticipated summer reads. (Please note: These are not necessarily books that will release/have released in summer of 2016. They’re just books we’re super excited about reading, and we want to get a head start on them!)
- LABYRINTH LOST by Zoraida Córdova. We got an ARC of this one from a Raincoast books event, and we’re both pumped to read it (any fellow Moon Circle friends in the #RWFSquad?). We’ll be diving into it shortly!
- MY LADY JANE by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand, and Jodi Meadows. A book written by three female YA authors? YES, PLEASE. A book about changing history in England written in rotating POVs? DOUBLE YES, PLEASE.
- MIRROR IN THE SKY by Aditi Khorana. Diverse contemp that fuses spec-fic elements (i.e., alternate Earths), and it looks too good to pass up. Plus, that cover, y’all. It’s GORGEOUS.
- MORE HAPPY THAN NOT by Adam Silvera. We’re surprised we haven’t gotten around to this one yet. Another contemp/sci-fi infusion with LGBTQIA+ characters. (Don’t worry, we’ll have the tissue box on standby.)
- And finally, THE LIFEBOAT CLIQUE by Kathy Parks. This one’s pitched LIFE OF PI meets MEAN GIRLS. That’s enough for us to click “hold” on the library website. Not to mention the super-cool summery cover!
And that’s our summer must-read list! Of course, there are tons of other books we’re pumped for, but these are pretty high up on our TBRs. What are you guys looking forward to reading this summer? We hope you all read a bunch before school starts again this September!
Keep reading, book nerds! Until next time,
