Summer Reading List!

summer reading 2

Hi Everyone! I’m going on my summer holiday (finallllyyy!!!) next Monday so in true holiday prepping style I thought that I’d buy a few books to keep me occupied when I’m away.

Into the Water:- Paula Hawkins

I will admit that I’ve already read this book oops.  If you’ve been a long time reader of my blog then you might remember that last summer I read the thriller the Girl on the Train.  I think I ended up reading the book in about four days! So, naturally when Hawkins latest thriller hit the shelves I knew that I wanted to read it.  Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy into the water nearly as much as the Girl on the Train.  For me, personally, it had too many different characters and because of university exams I didn’t read it consistently. I might give it another go though as the summer goes on to give it a more accurate review.


Thirteen Reasons Why

Unlike Into the Water, I’ve so far managed to save this novel AND I’ve not watched the Netflix series yet either so go me. The novel is based upon a girl who commits suicide but leaves behind 13 reasons why she did it. I’ve tried to block out peoples opinions on the book because I want to read it for myself.


Summer Days and Summer Nights

Completely different in genre to the other two books, this book appealed to me right away because of its fun Fab ice lolly cover.  The book is made up of 12 short stories around the theme of falling in love. A perfect easy summer read!
