Features | Top 4 Summery Reads

Slowly but surely, summer is coming. Beaches, heat, pools and, if you're like me, books. Lots of books. This year there are plenty of books that are perfect for summer, and I thought I'd put together some of the books I think should be on your TBR piles for this summer!

  1. The Square Root Of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood. Published earlier this year, this book focuses on a girl called Gottie, whose life fell apart last summer when her grandfather Grey did and Jason, the boy who she gave her heart too, wouldn't hold her hand at the funeral. So this summer, she's still trying to deal with two heartbreaks and surrounding herself in equations. Until, after he's been away for five years, Thomas comes home. This book has plenty of amazing reviews and a lot of support behind it. Definitely worth a read this summer.
  2. Girl Out Of Water by Nat Luurtsema. This book is billed as the perfect poolside read, and I couldn't agree more. It focuses on Lou Brown, whose best friend made it through Olympic swimming time trials but Lou did not. Lou is looking for something to do, when she stumbles upon three boys with stars in their eyes, and that takes her life in a surprising, weird and very new direction. I've read it and I think it's great. It's very funny, it's great to read and really should be one of your poolside reads for this summer.
  3. Remix by Non Pratt. This particular book came out last year, but if you haven't read it yet, I think you should. It's set at a music festival called Remix, where two friends Kaz and Ruby are going. Ruby is bored about hearing about Kaz breaking up with the love her life. "Three days. Two best mates. One music festival. Zero chance of everything working out," as the blurb suggests. It really is another great read, Non Pratt is a fantastic writer and if you haven't already had the pleasure of reading this, I suggest you do this summer! 
  4. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson. Taylor's family aren't close, but they then receive the news that they're going to spend one last summer together at their old lake house. However, she's still running from the past that she ran away from. Her old summer friend lives across the lake and is still as angry with Taylor as she was five years ago, plus her first boyfriend has moved in next door to her, but Taylor has different feelings for him now. "Can one summer be enough time to get a second chance?" Another one of those summery reads that you should give a read this summer!
But, there are so many different types of books out for summer, and there are so many amazing reads. Whatever you're reading this summer, I hope you enjoy it!
