There are so many books that I have been saving for the summer because I have become such a seasonal reader. There are just some books that look like perfect beach reads so I am excited to read these with my feet in the sand.
I received The Dead Romantics for Christmas and I have been dying to read it but I just know I am going to love reading it on the beach so I have been saving it. I have been recommended this so many times and I cannot wait to finally get to it. It is giving me Just Like Heaven vibes, which is a movie that I love.
Anita Kelly has the potential to become one of my favourite romance authors. I adored Love and Other Disasters and even preordered Something Wild and Wonderful but everything about it screams summer to me. As you can see, I love contemporary romance during the summer.
At this point, I think I read something by Alexis Hall every summer and I think this year I will be picking up Paris Daillencourt is About to Crumble. This is the sequel to Rosaline Palmer Takes the Cake and you know I love a good foodie romance. All I know is that one of the characters in this book is obsessed with his cat, so I already love him!
I read When in Rome earlier this year and it was so much fun for me and I am excited to read Practice Makes Perfect, which is set in the same small town and follows the sister of the male love interest from book one. She owns a flower shop, so such summer vibes!
I meant to read Exes and O’s around Valentine’s Day but didn’t get to it, so I decided to wait for the summer. I don’t know what it is but I am more likely to enjoy a romcom during the summer than I am if I read it any other time of the year.
Kennedy Ryan’s romances are much heavier than what I typically look for during the summer months but I just adore her that I really want to get to Long Shot sooner rather than later. I know that there is a content warning for domestic abuse, so I will have to be in the right place to read it, but I trust Kennedy Ryan!
The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels screams summer to me! It is a Regency romance but with vampires and the vibes just sound perfect. There are two more books in the series so I would love to get to those as well if I like book one.
I am lucky enough to have an eARC of Family Lore. This is Elizabeth Acevedo’s adult debut, but I have loved all of her YA novels. It comes out on August 1st, so I hope to get to it in July so I can have a review out for you before then.
I have to mix it up because I know I will get burnt out on contemporary romance, so I think This Delicious Death will be perfect for that. If I am not reading romcoms on the beach, I was to be reading a teen slasher.
I have a physical ARC of The Invisible Hour and I am thrilled about it! You all know how much I adore Alice Hoffman.
What is on your summer TBR?
