And now, with Summer Spotlight all wrapped up, it's time for me to take a blogging break! I need these blogging breathers once in while to catch up on reading and on life!

Expect to see me back sometime in September with reviews of some great new releases (ISLA is on my radar, as is Trial by Fire by Josie Angelini) and possibly some new features too!

See you then!

P.S: I'll still be hanging out on Twitter and Goodreads during my break if you want to say hi! :)

    I read The Age of Miracles (by Karen Thompson Walker), and it absolutely rocked my socks. It was the perfect summer read for me - I needed something thought-provoking, slow-paced, something that could transport me elsewhere, and let my brain rest without boring me. And this book was so perfect for it. To me, it was the perfect book to read while lazing on the bed with the fan on during a hot summer evening.

    (I reviewed it on my blog if anyone's interested: -- I don't mean to spam or anything.)

  10. My favorite summer read was Eleanor & Park!!

    Enjoy your blogging break! I have loved your Summer Spotlight and a few new beach reads are on my radar thanks to you! :) I'm so glad you loved The Truth About Forever (my favorite Dessen!) and I think one of my favorite summer read has been Open Road Summer. But we still have a month left of summer…( I am in totally denial!) haha. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  12. My favorite was What i Did for a duke by Julie Anne Long! thank you for the giveaway :)

    kiss me first by lottie moggach

  14. I'm glad to see that To All the Boys I've Loved Before ended up being a favourite Summer read for you, the wait for the second book is going to be super long! I hope you have a brilliant blogging break and get to read a lot of awesome books! :)

  15. THE HELP was a great read.

  16. Eleanor & Park. That’s definitely made my day.

  17. I really enjoyed Boys Like You by Juliana Stone, Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott, On the Fence by Kasie West, Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover, Uninvited by Sophie Jordan. I couldn't pick only one. Thank you so much.

  18. Best book I've read this summer is The Merciless by Danielle Vega. I read it in one sitting. I love horror & I love YA, so this book was perfect!

  19. Mhhhm, I would have to choose The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender or The Dream Thieves.
