If you read the title to the tune of 'summer lovin' like in grease, then bonus points to you. Today's post is going to be about the books I've read so far this summer.
I'm currently in the second week of my two week family holiday and so far I've read three (and a bit) books. The first book I read was 'Where Rainbows End' by Cecelia Ahern.
It was a really sweet, quick read. The film Love, Rosie is based on this novel. About Rosie and Alex, best friends since childhood, but separated by Alex's move to America. Misunderstandings, circumstances and sheer bad luck have kept them apart - until now. But will they gamble everything on true love? It is not my usual type of read, I don't particularly read romance novels, but it was hard not to find this cute! I love the characters and the plot moved at a realistic pace. I would recommend this novel if you want a fun, flirty beach read.
The second and third book I read were Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. Again I've been really lucky with my book choosing this year! This duology was so fantastic and I have found new characters and a new world to immerse myself in. Yet again I would highly recommend this duology! Criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker has been offered wealth beyond his wildest dreams. But to claim it, he'll have to pull off a seemingly impossible heist: Break into the notorious Ice Court (a military stronghold that has never been breached) Retrieve a hostage (who could unleash magical havoc on the world) Survive long enough to collect his reward (and spend it) Kaz needs a crew desperate enough to take on this suicide mission and dangerous enough to get the job done - and he knows exactly who: six of the deadliest outcasts the city has to offer. Together, they just might be unstoppable - if they don't kill each other first.
I have also just recently started 'The Wrath and the Dawn' by Renée Ahdieh. I've read 50 pages and so far so good! It has a really interesting premise: In a land ruled by a murderous boy-king, each dawn brings heartache to a new family. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, is a monster. Each night he takes a new bride only to have a silk cord wrapped around her throat come morning. When sixteen-year-old Shahrzad's dearest friend falls victim to Khalid, Shahrzad vows vengeance and volunteers to be his next bride.
Those are my reads on holiday so far, and I am really enjoying reading and relaxing! What are your summer reads?
