T5W #2: Summer Reads


Hi bookworms!

My second Top 5 Wednesday! Yay! This week’s topic is Top 5 Summer Reads. Top 5 Wednesday is a meme hosted by Lainey @ gingerreadslainey. New topics are set for every week so to join in on the fun just check out the group on goodreads.

So when I think of summer I think of contemporary books, don’t ask me why, I just do. So to put a little twist in this weeks topic, here are the five contemporary books I haven’t read but I cant wait to this summer:

17838528The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Andie had it all planned out.

When you are a politician’s daughter who’s pretty much raised yourself, you learn everything can be planned or spun, or both. Especially your future.

Important internship? Check.

Amazing friends? Check.

Guys? Check (as long as we’re talking no more than three weeks).

But that was before the scandal. Before having to be in the same house with her dad. Before walking an insane number of dogs. That was before Clark and those few months that might change her whole life.

Because here’s the thing—if everything’s planned out, you can never find the unexpected.

And where’s the fun in that?

This sounds like the perfect summer read in my opinion. Its been receiving really positive reviews so I’m really excited to pick it up.


Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell

‘Everybody likes everything these days. The whole world is a nerd.’
‘Are you mad because other people like Star Wars? Are you mad because people like me like Star Wars?’

If you broke Elena’s heart, Star Wars would spill out. So when she decides to queue outside her local cinema to see the new movie, she’s expecting a celebration with crowds of people who love Han, Luke and Leia just as much as she does. What she’s not expecting is to be last in a line of only three people; to have to pee into a collectible Star Wars soda cup behind a dumpster or to meet that unlikely someone who just might truly understand the way she feels. Kindred Spirits is an engaging short story by Rainbow Rowell, author of the bestselling Eleanor & Park, Fangirl and Carry On, and is part of a handful of selected short reads specially produced for World Book Day.

Even though this story is barely even 100 pages, I’m dying to read it. I’ve never seen a short story receive this much hype. Rainbow Rowell is the queen of contemporary in my opinion, I love her work and all the characters she develops so hopeful I’ll enjoy this! Plus I I see myself picking this up on a lazy summer afternoon and enjoying myself.


After You by Jojo Moyes

The synopsis for this book contains spoilers for Me Before You so I will not post that, you can check it out on goodreads instead!

Ever since I read Me Before You many weeks ago, thoughts of Loiusa and all that she went through couldn’t leave my head. I just need closure, I need to know what happens after, to find out if Louisa really is OK. If its anything like the first book, I know I’ll probably need a good sob session this summer (we all need them) and I hope this does the trick.


Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke

Every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.

Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.

What really happened?
Someone knows.
Someone is lying.

(*Ugh such a strong case of cover lust!) Guys, Is it just me or is this books cover so darn gorgeous! For that reason alone a want to pick it up right now! Although, the plot does sound really intriguing and mysterious. I can’t wait to read it this summer!

P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han


P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han

Lara Jean didn’t expect to really fall for Peter.
She and Peter were just pretending. Except suddenly they weren’t. Now Lara Jean is more confused than ever.
When another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him return too. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?

In this charming and heartfelt sequel to the New York Times bestseller To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, we see first love through the eyes of the unforgettable Lara Jean. Love is never easy, but maybe that’s part of what makes it so amazing

A few years ago I read To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and when I heard about this sequel I didn’t know what to feel because I felt the story was perfect on its on, but after a few months and a lot of reconsideration, I think I’m fairly excited to read this now. It’ll be the perfect book to read this summer (Like all Jenny Han books are)!

Yeah thats my T5W for this week, thanks for reading!

  1. I love Rainbow Rowell and think her books are perfect at any time of the year. Still haven’t read Kindred Spirits but I read another short by her and it was brilliant (and I don’t like short stories)
