Check out this diverse list of books to reading during the summer (or any time of year)!

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that I regularly post reviews of all types of books: children’s, young adult, biography, self-help and the list goes on.  I love reading and I always tend to read more books during the summertime.  Last year, I put together a summer reading list and I loved the challenge of reading new books and discovering new genres and subjects.  With summer coming up so soon, I decided to create a summer 2017 reading list.

The list might look long to some people, but I have a tendency to devour books and I am a fast reader to boot.  Some are part of a series and others are stand-alone novels.  So take a moment and scroll through the list, click on the title to check out a summary on Goodreads and join me this summer in reading.

Red Queen (Red Queen #1) by Victoria Aveyard
Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie (Flavia de Luca #1) by Alan Bradley

If there’s nothing on this list that interests you, you can also check out my reviews of the books I read last summer.  Some of the books on the list above are sequels or parts of a series I read last summer and haven’t gotten around to reading yet.

What books have you read from this list?  What’s on your summer reading list?

  1. First off, I'd like to say I absolutely LOVE the background of your blog! Second, I'm excited to check out this list, as I'm recently getting back into reading and am hunting for new books to read. I haven't read any books from this list, so I have a lot of reading ahead of me!

  2. This is a great summer reading list! I have The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie on my Kindle and need to read it too. I have heard that is such a good mystery series.

  3. I haven't read any of the books that you have listed; your list encouraged me to get busy writing my book list for this summer. 🙂
