Received for Review



Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira
Even in Paradise by Chelsey Philpot (Edelweiss)

When I first heard of Love Letters to the Dead I wasn't sure if it really sounded like my kind of book. However, all the positive reviews I've read in the last while have convinced me to give it a go. I'd love to know what you thought of this one if you've read it. 

I'm was so happy to get an early copy of Even in Paradise. It doesn't release until October but the cover just screams summer so I want to read it while the sun is shining!



Get Even by Gretchen McNeil (Edelweiss)
The Lovely and the Lost (The Dispossessed #2) by Page Morgan
Welcome to the Dark House by Laurie Faria Stolarz (Netgalley)


Bought


Animals by Emma Jane Unsworth

I haven't heard much at all about Animals apart from a few good reviews on Goodreads and a mention in Grazia magazine, but it sounds like a very 'me' book so much so that I bought it on release day and plan on getting started very soon. 

To All the Boys I've Loved Before is book perfection. I've already read it and it's a new favourite of mine. LOVE.

    I'm reading Love Letters to the Dead now- not sure what to think of it yet, though it is addicting, so either way I can't stop reading it. And eek, can't wait to read Get Even! :) Happy reading!

    Here's mine

    We don't really go on summer vacations (I know, so sad; but at least I got to read my books at home!!). I recently tweeted a photo of my summer tbr. You can check it out here: https://twitter.com/MichelleSedeno/status/462518553501913088

    I always have a pile of books, a sun hat, and a beach towel to drape over my legs so I don't get burnt when I get distracted by a book and loose track of time!

    ReplyDelete
  24. One of my favourite things to do is read on the beach so I always have books in my beach bag. A few of my other essentials are sun tanning oil, chips & candy, and something like a football or frisbee to play with friends. I haven't started my summer reading list quite yet but I'm hoping to read many books!

    ReplyDelete
  25. My summer essentials: Sunblock + Face Mist :)
    For books: I'll be reading "Amy and Roger's Epic Detour", "This Song Will Save Your Life" though I'm currently reading "Maybe Someday" :) It's summer here in the Philippines :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I finished Love Letters this weekend - I absolutely loved it. Lyrical yet gritty - I need to do it justice in my review this week!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. On my every summer reading list are always books from Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han or romance reads in general. This summer I hope to read the rest of the Lunar chronicles since I only read Cinder, The moon and more by Dessen, and a few YA romance novels. I will probably read them on the beach. Thanks for the giveaway :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. My all time favorite summer reads are Amy and Roger's Epic Detour, Saving Francesca, Along for the Ride and Second Chance Summer.

    ReplyDelete
  36. My Summer reading list is quite ambitious since I'm trying to squeeze in every book I missed during my reading hiatus (thanks to you thesis). I'm also trying to add diversity in my reading so my list is a mixture of ya, classics, and other genres. Right now, I'm reading 'This is What Happy Looks Like' and after finishing this, I'm gonna read 'The Museum of Intangible Things', 'Dangerous Girls' and 'To All the Boys I've Loved Before'. For all time summer reads, Sarah Dessen's books and Jenny Han's are definitely MUST! By the way, The Haim is really cool! Love their My Song 5! :)

  57. So many books to read, so little time, but this season (were heading into Winter here in Oz) but I'm hoping to read some new and older titles, such as Morgan Matson and Huntley Fitzpatrick's newest novels, Insurgent, and since I've been enjoying them so much lately, some Aussie YA.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  60. So I've just recently taken up reading books again. I rarely read any fiction as I get too tired after studying all the time, I study Medicine. But the last six months or so, I just re-found my love for books. So wonderful! So far, my 2014 Summer Reading List includes the Hunger Games Trilogy, and possibly also Fangirl - I'm about to read your review right now!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  67. Summer beach bag essentials: sunglasses, sunscreen, lipbalm, and a good book! During the summer I mostly read contemporaries because I just feel like it's the perfect time to do so. Recently though, I read Of Poseidon by Anna Banks which is a mermaid book and it was a light read and I think it's perfect for the summer, too. :D
