Some books you read. Some books you enjoy. But some books just swallow you up heart and soul.
The summer is here and we are nearly done with school. Being done with school, for about two months, means that we will have loads of time to read again!! We actually have many, many books we still want to read. However, we’ve narrowed them down to just a few, which we most definitely want to read during our upcoming summer break. Here are our summer reads with a short description of what the books are about.
I’ll give you the sun by Jandy Nelson
‘Jude and her twin Noah are close until a tragedy drives them apart. Now they are barely speaking – and both falling for boys they can’t have. Love’s complicated.’
The sky is everywhere by Jandy Nelson
‘Lennie Walker, seventeen, wuthering heights obsessed, clarinet player, band geek. Also hopeless romantic, prone to scattering poems all over town and, as of four weeks ago, sisterless…’
Holding up the universe by Jennifer Niven
When Libby and Jack get tangled up in a cruel high school game—which lands them in group counseling and community service—They are both pissed, and then surprised. Because the more time they spend together, the less alone they feel. Because sometimes when you meet someone, it changes the world, theirs and yours.
Almost adulting by Arden Rose
Perfect for budding adults, failing adults, and eaters of microwave mug brownies—Arden tells you how to survive your future adulthood. By the end of the book—a mash-up of essays, lists, and artwork—you’ll have learned not only how to dress yourself, how to travel alone, how to talk to strangers online, and how to date strangers (in PERSON!), but also how to pass as a real, functioning, appropriately socialized adult.
Milk & Honey by Rupi Kaur
The book is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. Deals with a different pain. Heals a different heartache. Milk and Honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.
Looking for Alaska by John Green
Miles Halter’s whole life has been one big non-event, until he meets Alaska Young. Gorgeous, clever and undoubtedly screwed up, Alaska draws Miles into her reckless world and irrevocably steals his heart. For Miles, nothing can ever be the same again.
These are the books we, without a doubt, want to read this summer and we cannot wait to start reading them! (To be honest, are list will probably extend)
