Five Beach Reads for Summer 2018 ☀💛👙

Since yesterday was the summer solstice for the Northern Hemisphere, I just wanted to give you all five summertime recommendations! All five of these books I love with my whole heart, and I think they would be such perfect summertime reads! Like, I immediately want to go to the nearest body of water and reread all of these again! But I hope you all enjoy these recommendations, loves! 🏖

➽ The Hating Game by Sally Thorne 💕
This is one I see all the time on beach reads recommendations! But that’s because it is honestly the perfect summer time read! It’s so sweet, and so swoony, and I think this is also a great doorway book to get into romance!

➽ Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore 🌺
Family, flowers, and falling in love. This book means the world to me, and I read it at the end of last summer and still can’t stop thinking about it. Lush and beautiful writing, amazing character direction, and a heartwarming story that I totally recommend for you all this summer!

➽ The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw 🌙
The Wicked Deep has a really cool summer aspect, but everything comes to fruition on the summer equinox! And this has hardcore vacation and traveling vibes, too! And I think this book has a lot to offer for so many different types of readers!

➽ Geekerella (Starfield #1) by Ashley Poston 🚀
This is such a fun, summer time book, that focuses on all things geeky! This stars a boy and a girl that are communicating through text messages, in a Cinderella retelling, where they will meet at their favorite fandom’s convention!

➽ The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon 🕊
This is probably the best Fantasy Romance I’ve ever read in my entire life. It is such a beautiful blend of the two genres that highlights both. I couldn’t put this down, and I devoured it in one sitting! I hope I get to book two this summer on the beach!

Okay, loves! Let me know if you’ve read any of these! Or if you’re going to! Also, feel free to recommend me beach reads, because I’m always on the hunt! Also, if you’re looking for 2018 summer releases that I’ve already read and loved, check out this post! And I hope you all have such a wonderful summer, filled with all the good stories! 🌻☀💛

Top Ten Tuesday | Summer 2018 Book Recommendations


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018!

Hey, friends! Okay, so the “real” topic this week is actually “Books to Read by the Pool/At the Beach” but I also thought this would be the perfect opportunity to talk about some summer (in the US) releases I’m hyped for! This week I’m going to talk about some books that I’ve already read, that will be released in Summer 2018, and then next week I will talk about some books that are releasing in Summer 2018 that I haven’t read yet, but really want to! And without further ado here are eight Summer 2018 books I’ve read, really enjoyed, and completely recommend:

(And click on each title for my full thoughts and full trigger and content warnings!)

A Thousand Beginnings and Endings edited by Ellen Oh & Elsie Chapman – ★★★★★
June 26th, 2018 by Greenwillow Books

“We fell in love with all those myths about powerful gods being vulnerable, about humans becoming heroes. Such stories taught us about mythology, about the beauty of folktales and legends, and about how stories of gods and goddesses are also stories about the human heart. But we never found similar compilations that were distinctly Asian.”

Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik – ★★★★★
July 10th, 2018 by Del Rey

“The real story isn’t half as pretty as the one you’ve heard.”

All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover – ★★★
July 17th, 2018 by Atria Books

“The problem is, love and happiness are not concordant. One can exist without the other.”

Nyxia Unleashed (The Nyxia Triad #2) by Scott Reintgen – ★★★★★
July 17th, 2018 by Crown Books for Young Readers

“As the descent begins, I hold on to one truth: I am more than what they would make of me.”

Heart of Thorns (Heart of Thorns #1) by Bree Barton – ★★★
July 31st, 2018 by Katherine Tegen Books

“Once upon a time, in a castle carved of stone, a girl plotted murder.”

Fresh Ink: An Anthology edited by Lamar Giles – ★★★★★
August 14th, 2018 by Crown Books for Young Readers

“More often than not, if I ran across a character who shared my race and gender in a book he was a gross stereotype, comic relief, token sidekick, or, depending on genre (I’m looking at you, science fiction, fantasy, and horror), there to die so the real hero could fight another day.”

Toil & Trouble edited by Tess Sharpe & Jessica Spotswood – ★★★★★
August 28th, 2018 by Harlequin Teen

“Here’s how to fulfill a prophecy: you are a woman, you speak the truth, and the world makes you into a liar.”

Mirage (Mirage #1) by Somaiya Daud – ★★★★★
August 28th, 2018 by Flatiron Books

“On a small moon orbiting a large planet, in a small farmhouse in a small village, there was a box, and in this box was a feather.”

Okay, friends, those are the eight Summer 2018 releases I’ve read so far! And I know I’m totally biased, but I hope you all go out and buy A Thousand Beginnings and Endings edited by Ellen Oh & Elsie Chapman on the 26th! I mean, what better way to start this summer than with an ownvoices anthology about Asian myths? The correct answer: there isn’t a better way, so go buy it! Also, I love you all and be sure to get hyped for my second favorite post of the year to make, which will be live on the official first day of summer, the 21st! ☀👙🍦
