Hooray! Summer is so close I can almost taste it, but it seems like just yesterday I was bundled up in six sweaters, praying I survive winter. As summer draws closer, summer book releases start to come out and it can be pretty overwhelming. So many good books! Beautiful covers! Great blurbs! Exciting premises! How can you possibly choose from all the books? Don’t worry! It can seem daunting, but I’m here to walk you through all the new releases you need to have on your radar this sunny season.
1. The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
Morgan Matson is already the reigning queen of summer novels (Since You’ve Been Gone, Second Chance Summer, Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour) so it’s no surprise her newest makes the top of this list.
2. Love and Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch
Set in Tuscany and following sixteen year old Lina, this fluffy summer romance will have you booking the next flight to Italy.
3. The Art of Not Breathing by Sarah Alexander
This debut all about free diving is the perfect antidote to a beach reading slump.
4. A Fierce and Subtle Poison by Samantha Mabry
Set in Puerto Rico, this creepy magical-realism will keep you flipping pages way into the night. My full review
5. Summer Days and Summer Nights edited by Stephanie Perkins
This romance anthology written by twelve of your favorite authors and edited by Stephanie Perkins is perfect for when you want your stories in tiny bites.
