Summer Schedule  

I've decided to take a more laid back approach to this years Summer Spotlight, so while in previous years there have been lots of guest posts, this year, I'll be focusing on reviews. I'll also be posting a little less than usual (maybe twice a week instead of thrice!) as I want to spend time outside enjoying whatever sunshine we may get! 

I also won't be participating in Blog Tours from now until September as I plan on scheduling any reviews I do write in advance and scheduling in advance is not something that's not always possible when participating in blog tours!

I'll be taking next week off from reviewing in order to prep some summer reviews, but Arianne will be along with two great UKYA reviews and I also have a Cover Reveal and Book Deal round-up to post!

Also, I'm pleased to announce that Liz will be rejoining the team for the the summer months (once her exams are over) so you can look forward to reviews from her from June onwards!



  1. My Summer reading list is pretty long, but here's a few I'm hoping to read... Divergent (I know, I know I should have read it by now), Wonder, The Rosie Project, The Way of Kings and Ruin & Rising (I cannot wait for that to come out).

  2. I've heard some really great things about these book so far! And who doesn't love a good summer read?

  3. Open Road Summer is on my summer reading list.

  4. I enjoyed Unbreak My Heart by Melissa Walker last Summer. This Summer it would be perfect to read Cress and Sweet Reckoning. I also can't wait to read Since You've Been Gone. =)

    Beach bag is never complete without a book!

    My summer reading list is rather long and I have recently got into YA so I now have a huge list of YA I would like to read to catch up here!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Must have a book, a bottle of water, but one that is like a thermos to keep the water cold. Sunscreen, sunglasses, and a beach towel! (Lisa Mandina)

    I read "The Summer I Turned Pretty" once and found out that it was a great summer read. Though usually I don't base which books I plan on reading on the weather since I'm not exactly sure what to look for. Maybe Harry Potter.... though I'll read that whenever, wherever. Lol
    And~ let's see... My beach bag... well a part from the obvious (i.e. a really good book), sunscreen sounds good, sunglasses, chap stick, and other things that also seem important at the time. Haha!

  11. This summer I want to read the Summer I turned pretty trilogy, this book is on the top of my list.

  12. Hannah Harvey2 May 2014 at 22:01

    I'm really looking forward to summer reading. I finish Uni next month and plan on doing a huge amount of reading after that.

  13. Hannah Harvey2 May 2014 at 22:04

    My reading list is huge. But most notably I want to read the last two in the peaches series. The last two in the partial series and I want to reread some Sarah Dessen.
    Beach bag essentials include my kindle and money for iced coffee

  14. My summer bag essentials are sun cream, sunglasses and whatever book I'm reading at the time :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. Always a book, sunglasses, a hat and a tube of handcream. The only time I use handcream is when on holiday.

  16. Natalie Hearts Books2 May 2014 at 22:43

    My beah bag essentials are sunscreen, water and a good book or two.
    I don't have a favourite summer read and my summer reading list this year is to finish a bunch of series that I have started.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  17. Since You've Been Gone is definitely on my summer reading list! But so is Open Road Summer and The Museum of Intangible Things. =)

  18. My summer essentials are sunblock, shades, and a hat. :) The Happiness Project is my summer read. :)

    My Summer reading list is not that interesting. I am stuck with books in exchange of honest reviews. Here's a few from the list... Shadow & Bone, Essence, and If I Stay.

    My beach bag essenitals are sun-cream, lip balm, water , sunglasses and a good book! I plan on reading some YA contemporary this summer like Jenny Han's All the Boys I've Loved Before. Thanks for the giveaway! Donna @ Book Passion for Life

  21. My beach bag would have to have my kindle which is full of books that I haven't had a chance to read and some salty snacks plus an insulated bottle full of coke!!

  22. A stack of books, sunscreen, water, snacks, sunglasses and somewhere to stretch out in the sun to read = perfect summer plan and hopefully will happen this summer!

  23. I have to read the maze runner this summer, its at the top of the list and I want to read more John Green books.

  24. I can't wait to devour as many books as possible. I've weirdly been in the mood for contemporary and fantasy, lately.

  25. sunscreen, sunglasses and a lovely contemporary!<3

    Yay! SUMMERTIME! I can't wait to find out what you have in store for us this year. :) You already know my favorite summertime read is Jenny Han's Summer series. :) I am looking forward to reading her newest book soon as well as Open Road Summer (thanks to your recommendation!) Thanks for the great giveaway!

  27. My summer reading list is piling up! I am finally starting The Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, Fangirl, The Beautiful Forevers (for the Nerdfighters book club), as well as reading Harry Potter for the 100th time :). As for my beach bag, I always have a towel, nuts or a granola bar, sunscreen, sunglasses, water bottles, and of course a summer read :)

  28. I don't know that I separate books out into seasonal reads. I just read the next on my pile.
