At the beginning of the summer, I wrote a post about the books I had hoped and planned to read over the summer. I ended up reading 7 books, which is a far cry from the 12 books I wanted to read, but I’m still pretty pleased with that number! About halfway through the summer I wrote a review post of the books I read up to that point so I’ll link that throughout this list. I was really pleased with all the books I read this summer so if you get a chance to check any of these out, I know you won’t be disappointed.
One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I absolutely loved this book. The twists and turns, the characters, and the heartbreaking situation the main character was put in made it SO HARD for me to put this book down even for a few minutes. I’m pretty sure I devoured this book in two days, tops. I received an advanced eGalley of ONE TRUE LOVES and I seriously couldn’t wait to tell everyone I knew about this book. I had to spill my feelings about it to my mom because I felt like there weren’t enough people to talk about it to. If you’re into romantic novels that are nothing like you’ve ever read before, I highly recommend picking this one up. Trust me.
I’m definitely giving this book 5/5 stars.
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
IT ENDS WITH US was definitely my most anticipated read for the summer. I loved it, but it did take me a little while to get into the book. I think this might have been because I was working 40 hrs a week at a day camp and wasn’t totally in my best mindset to read, but I ended up finishing this two weeks before classes started. This book was so powerful and I’m mad I finished it on a train riding home from New York City so I couldn’t have the full cry that I typically do when I finish a CoHo novel, but it was totally worth finishing right then and there. This book is much different than all of the others I’ve read but I loved it so much and thought it was such an important read. If you read one Colleen Hoover book, let it be this one. Trust me. Also, I really think it’s best to go into this book blind. It’ll change your life, so be prepared.
