Top Summer Reads

Happy first day of Summer!! ğŸ˜ŽÂ ğŸŒºÂ ğŸŒ´

Today we’re going to be talking about some of the books I’m aiming to read this summer, whether they be backlist or new releases! During the summer I typically enjoy contemporaries, mysteries, and thrillers. So, you probably won’t see too many fantasy books pop in on this list but I did make room for one or two.

Keep in mind this list is a bit on the smaller side because, let’s face, I’m a mood reader and just don’t work too well with a fully scheduled TBR. This gives me plenty of room to breathe and add tons of other books into the mix this summer.

Lets dive in!

Summer 19′ TBR

Let’s start with the new, shall we?


Release Date: June 25, 2019

First up, is Call It What you Want. If you haven’t pieced together by now that I’m a HUGE Brigid Kemmerer fan, well, now you know. If she writes it, I read it. Especially when it comes to her contemporary novels. I mayyyy have already started this and I might even think this is going to be my favorite book by the author so far.


Release Date: July 9, 2019

Hello, gorgeous cover! What did we do to deserve you?! Not gonna lie I totally judged this book by its cover when I first saw it but then I read the synopsis and needed it even more. Sapphic horror? Yes please!


Release Date: August 7, 2019

Y’all know I always have to make room for a fantasy retelling on my TBR. I was super lucky to get an e-ARC of this and it just sounds so dazzlingly spooky.


Release Date: August 27, 2019

So, I’m super late to this party and only finished Roar earlier this month, but I LOVED it! And I’m kind of beating myself up that I let this sit on my bookshelf for so long, but you better believe come August 27th we’re hustling to the bookstore for Rage.

On to the backlist!


Necessary People came out in May and it sounds soooo freaking good. Two girls who will go to extreme lengths to outdo and one up each other seems like it will have my flying through the pages while sitting by the pool!


The Past and Other Things That Should Stay Buried came out earlier this year and the synopsis gave me all the Undead Girl Gang vibes, which I absolutely adored. I’m super excited to give this one a try!


Somehow I missed the buzz about this series until more books were announced a few months ago. But uhmmm, a paranormal mystery?!
Sign me the F up.


The Girl Who Fell came across my radar earlier this year and I’ve been DYING to read it ever since. I love books that tackle tough topics and I’ve heard that this is a very hard but important read that centers around abuse. I sampled the first chapter of the book and if you’ve ever seen the movie Fear…those were the vibes I got from it.

Let’s Chat!

What are you guys planning on reading this summer?!

Until next time,

  1. I have only read A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer, but I completely adored that book. I definitely plan on picking up more of her books in the future. 🙂
    I read The Diviners in 2014 and the only thing that I remember about that book is that I enjoyed it a lot. I was actually really sick and on medication when I read it, which is why it’s a fuzzy memory for me. 😂 I really need to reread The Diviners, as I’m very curious on what actually happens in the book. 😂 I hope you manage to read all the books you planned!


    1. You should definitely give her contemporaries a try! I’ve loved every single one of them so far.

      Oh no! Well at least you know you enjoyed, who knows maybe you’ll like it even more the second time around!
