My Summer TBR!!! (2017 Edition)

29 July 2017

People handle freedom differently. It seems the way I handle freedom is to go out and buy lots and lots of books. Books that I don't need to buy because I already have a huge TBR pile. But we won't worry about that. My book picks for this summer are light-hearted beach/ holiday reads. I didn't want anything too heavy since as I've spent most of my time this year looking at tragedy and crime novels for my Literature A-Level. So to brighten up my reading, here are my six summer TBR's:

Wilde Like Me by Louise Pentland
There's something about buying a newly published book and reading it. I'm so excited to start reading this, I love Louise and I can't wait to read her new novel. I'm hoping this will be a laugh out loud type of novel. 

Goose by Dawn O'Porter
This book is a couple of years old and I managed to pick it up for only £1. The book is about two characters who are exactly the same age as I am and in the same position of finishing A-Levels and thinking of going off to uni. I can relate to these girls and some of the issues spoken about. I've already started reading this book and it's a little scary how much I can relate to these characters already. Another reason for buying the book is I love reading Dawn O'Porter's articles in GLAMOUR. 

Falling by Jane Green
I'm always seeing her name in the library and everywhere else I look for books so I naughtily picked this the other day to add to my list. It's about a woman called Emma who answers an online ad, meets a man and 1+1+ 2. I love a good romance novel and this seems like a sweet one. 

About Last Night by Catherine Alliott
This was another impulse buy. Reading the blurb, I'm not sure if this book has much of a plot but I think it will be an interesting read. From what I've gathered, Molly moved away from her life to suit her husband's but now he's dead, she wants to try and get her life back. The way it was. I think it will provide a nice escape. And I love the front cover (even though they do say not to judge a book by it's cover). 

Girls on Tour by Nicola Doherty
I picked this up whilst trying to find a book for my friend. It was only £1.99 and it sounded like good book. It's about these four girls who all go on separate holidays and then they all end up in Manhattan (along with some drama that snuck in their cases). 

The Last Piece Of My Heart by Paige Toon
I'm getting more and more embarrassed to say just how many impulse buys are on my shelf. I picked this one up when I bought Wilde Like Me. I can't help it when I'm faced with rows and rows of books. I'm not entirely sure why I bought the book, the blurb suggests it's a sweet story and the way it's written, creates the perfect escapism. The reviews from her other books suggests Toon is a great author of holiday reads. So we'll see.

I hope my book lists have been helpful, either encouraged you to read or provided some to add to your own TBR's. These are my summer TBR's (well, some of them) and I'll write mini-reviews to let you know how I got on. See you soon.

Love, Aoife x
