Here’s this same playlist on 8tracks –
Summer mainly feels like YA contemporary novels, but I’ve tried to incorporate some other books as well.
- Summer series by Jenny Han – I am not a fan of this series personally, but I don’t think you can exclude this one from a “summer reads list”.
- The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater – Henrietta always feels like summer.
- We Were Liars by E. Lockhart – Not summer-y in a cheerful sort of way, but more like in a dark way.
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – Self explanatory
- Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare – Of all of Shakespeare’s plays, this one is particularly summer-y.
- Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah – I remember reading this one summer years ago.
- The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson – I call these books “quality YA”. It had one of my favourite books of all time. And basically all of Matson’s books are very summer-y.
- To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee – Essentially gives off summer vibes.
- I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson – Have you seen the name of this book??
- Summer Days and Summer Nights edited by Stephanie Perkins – I haven’t read this one, but it is necessarily a collection of twelve short stories in summer.
Hope you guys are having a lovely summer! XO
