Now that we are nearing the Summer it is of course time to start making lists like the best beach reads or books one would like to read during the Summer. In this way Top Ten Tuesday, as always created by The Broke and the Bookish, could not stay behind.
This is a reoccuring topic. I struggle with it every year. I do not really gravitate towards what most seem to see as Summer reads. Crime fiction, contemporary and so on. Even so I try and make a list of sorts every year. Last year I made a list of books you would need on basis of their title for a beach read in my opinion. And the year before that I also created a list of beach reads.
This year I would like to give you a list of some Adult Summer reads. Of course this is a bit of a harder list to create. And maybe you will see some similar books as above. But that is okay. It means they truly are great for this time of year.
Enchanted Inc. by Shanna Swendson
I feel like I reccommend this book each year. But I feel it is a great book to read during the Summer. It is quick fantasy chick lit. And highly entertaining. You could easily fly through the entire series this Summer.
Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning
Another series one can easily fly through during the Summer is the Fever series. A bit darker than the above mentioned book but certainly not less entertaining. And Karen Marie Moning certainly knows how to write some steamy scenes.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
This book is a perfect whimsical tale to be absorbed on a nice warm day.
The Restorer by Amanda Stevens
A series called The Graveyard Queen might not automatically appeal to be read during the Summer, but it is certainly well worth it. It is a paranormal thriller that takes place in South Carolina where from what I gather it can become very warm. Seems perfect for the Summer to me.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
This is a title that cannot have escaped anyone’s notice over the years. When one talks about humor or sci-fi this book is often mentioned in the same breath. And there are four more. Great, quick and funny reads. Perfect for the Summer.
The Martian by Andy Weir
While The Martian certainly was not by kind of book I am in the minority in that. Apparently it is funny…
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
While this might be a bit denser than the above mentioned books it certainly is well worth the read. And hey, who doesn’t like to read about circusses in the Summer?
Which books would you recommend to read this Summer?
