T5W: Summer reads

Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey from gingerreadslainey and was handed over to Samantha from Thoughts on Tome. Here is the Goodreads group for T5W.


This week's topic is: Summer reads. It is kind of difficult for me to think about summer already as I'm currently writing my thesis with comfy socks and a huge blanket next to the heater. It's cold in here guys.


But anyways, here are the five books that makes me think of summer:


5. Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson: When I think about summer, I think about contemporary. I don't read a lot of contemporary, but if I do, it's likely to be during the summer. This book is really cute and funny with a bit of BFF drama. Nothing really deep or dramatic. It's a nice and quick read for summer (that I read in February...)

Find it on Goodreads.



4. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart: I totally adored this book. It's not such a light read but I don't want to say anything about it, you'll have to see for yourself. It was truly amazing. The story takes place during summer and I think about sun and water when I think about this book. I really recommend it (I also read it in February. I think it's the month in which I'm the most desperate for sun and heat ^^)

Find it on Goodreads.




3. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: I read it for the first time in June after finishing my exams (apparently 2012 but I'm not so sure). So it really reminds me of summer and holidays and it is one of my favourite books.

Find it on Goodreads.




2. Paper Towns by John Green: Another contemporary! John Green's books are always so refreshing and funny, I really love reading them when I don't really want to think about anything too deep, they are perfect summer reads, but Paper Town is really the want that makes we think the most about summer and holidays (but it was really not my favourite John Green book).

Find it on Goodreads.



1. Aristotle and Dante discover the secret of the universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz: such a beautiful coming of age story! I really enjoyed reading this book (in January this time!), it is such a unique and so realistic story. I encourage you to read it if you have not read it yet!

Find it on Goodreads.




What do you like to read during summer?
