  1. This is an awesome idea, I love it! Summer is my favorite time to read and this year, I am not taking any summer classes so I will have more time to read for sure. My favorite "summer" book recently has been Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler. It made me laugh & cry.

    Thanks for the giveaway and I look forward to participate in the summer-bookish posts :)

  2. This is such a lovely idea! I absolutely love reading in summer, preferably during vacation at the beach. ♥ And then it doesn't even matter too much what genre the books are as long as they're "happy" books. :) This summer I definitely want to re-read ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS, because I bet it'll be an awesome beach-read. Other than that I always loved reading Sophie Kinsella's books ( = cute Chick Lit ).

  3. I'd have to say my favorite summertime read would be the newest book in the Sarah Booth Delaney mystery series. I know it's Summer when they come out.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I would say the Hunger Games is my go to summer read

    ReplyDelete
  5. This is a wonderful idea, I'm always looking for more summer reads! My favourite would probably be any Sarah Dessen or Maureen Johnson books - even though I recommend them all year, something about them scream light, fun summer reads that are still filled with substance. I love grabbing Along For the Ride or 13 Little Blue Envelopes and reading it laying out in the sand. And even though I haven't had it for a summer yet, I definitely think Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard will be a go-to summer read.

    Thank you for the giveaway, and I really look forward to these posts!

  6. Hmmm I'm going on holiday soon & I'm probably going to take a few books to re-read. So I would pick Amy & Rogers Epic Detour and Catching Jordan. :-)

  17. You're so right about there being something about the summer that screams "READ!" I spent a week on a private island in the Bahamas two summers ago and even though we had beach/bikes/TV/etc. I just wanted to read the whole time (and I did!). Can't wait to read Sweet Summertime Reads. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Any sweet book with a happy ending which makes me smile is my summer read.Graffiti Moon is my latest favorite:)

  20. I remember reading 13 Little Blue Envelopes in its entirety at the beach last year. In a day. Perfect beach read: traveling, a little romance, and it had a nice pace. You could pick it up, put it down to swim, and pick up right where you left off. :)

    So excited to be a part of this "event". I think Zac Efron would also approve.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I LOVE Jennifer Echols! I loved Such a Rush, The Boys Next Door, and Love Story! As for summer beach reads: I love anything contemporary: Jennifer Echols, Stephanie Perkins (Anna and the French Kiss!), Kody Keplinger (The Duff!).

    My favorite last summer was The Underland Chronicles (the Gregor the Overlander series)
    Amanda

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh, man. This post just wants me to pack up a bag and some flip-flops and head to the beach! I read a little bit of everything; naturally lighter fare is more popular reading for the summer time, so I don't know what it says about me that when I think about it, I think the books I'd bring to the beach with me are A Song of Ice and Fire books! Not exactly light...but they'll make great headrests for when the sun makes me sleepy. : )

    ReplyDelete
  39. The Summer Series :))

    ReplyDelete

  75. Hmmm. I don't think I have a specific book I like to read in the summer, but I may lean more towards "Fantasy" books. I don't know if it's coincidence that I buy them right before the summer, or if that's just what I like to read. I'm wishing I had the sequel to "Blood Red Road" right now (which I read while camping last summer).

    ReplyDelete
  76. I don't have a favourite summer book. I'd say, anything I haven't read already! I like picking up something new :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. I have so so many good summer reads, but my ultimate favorite would have to be AMY AND ROGER'S EPIC DETOUR. It is so good!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Oh, you're so right! There is something so magical and special about reading in the summer time and the books that go along with the theme. It's like slipping into a first love all over again, soaking up the hot summer sun, and just lying back and enjoying getting lost in the waves. I think my favorite reads for the summer would definitely include Kieran Scott's, She's So Dead To Us. I absolutely love this series, it's such a great set of books to read. Anything by Sarah Dessen, Jennifer Echol's of course, Simone Elkeles (sp?), Susane Consalati, Deb Caletti, etc. :)

  79. Such a great post! I love curling up in bed too -- and reading until I can barely keep my eyes open, while hubby has long since started to snore.

    I haven't read any Jennifer Echols' books yet (I know, I know!) but I've heard that they're GREAT! My personal summer favourite is anything by Sarah Dessen. Her books perfect capture the essence of summer, in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete

  88. I love sweet contemporaries and steamy historical romances for summer time reads. :)

    ReplyDelete
  89. My favorite summer reads are the ones that I can't read during the school year because a) they hadn't come out yet, b) they aren't school appropriate c) I need more time to think about them than I can with 30ish students in the room or d)the ones that I want to because I can! :)

    My favorite summer read is "Along for the ride" by Sarah Dessen. I love all of her books but this one is my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  107. If we're just going with contemporary, I think I'd have to say Amy & Roger's Epic Detour. It's perfect since it happens in the summer, there's a cute guy, a road trip, and awesome playlist.

    ReplyDelete
  108. It's so hard to name just one favourite summertime read, but I always seem to find my way back to the Gossip Girl series. I remember being so excited when each new book came out a while back, so now I use summer to re-live that feeling. Plus, it helps with summer hiatus of the TV show, although they really don't have all that much in common (except for the characters).

    ReplyDelete
  109. There are times... when I'm feeling nostalgic when there's nothing better to read than a Babysitter's Club summer special... I know it's kind of daggy but I used to really love their antics and reading about their summer romances.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Anything contemp! Probably some Sarah Dessen,Jenny Han and Susane Colasanti!

  123. I don't know that I have a specific "summer read," but I read Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series in a week last summer, and the newest just came out in May, so I think those are good summer books for me. :) I can stay up all night reading about vampires and werewolves! I also loved The Hunger Games last summer and got so wrapped up in that trilogy. Thank you for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  124. Gotta go with The Summer Series by Jenny Han! I could gush forever about those books! :)

    ReplyDelete
  125. I love the book Beach Blondes and Tanlines for a summer time read. I always reread them every summer.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I read everything in the summertime. But I gotta tell you that I'm leaning pretty heavily on Something Like Normal lately. That one is pretty awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Just in general, I always love to read Sarah Dessen in the summer :) But yeah, any contemporaries are perfect for sitting under the sun. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Thanks for the giveaway!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  135. My favorite summer time reads is one I used to read over and over in high school, which is the Summer Boys series by Hailey Abbott. It's SUCH a guilty pleasure read. You can literally read it in a day, hah! I also love love love rereading Harry Potter in the summer when I have more free time :)

    ReplyDelete
  136. My favourite summertime read is actually a middle grade book back from my childhood called In Summertime It's Tuffy by Judie Angell published in 1979. It's about a girl that goes to camp with her friends and gets into all kinds of trouble. I just love it, and it brings back so many good memories of summers spent reading :)

    ReplyDelete
  137. Great giveaway!! As a teacher, summer is a time when I get to read for just me-- not school stuff all the time!! I always enjoy rereading

  141. But of course my favorite summer reads are Jennifer Echols books, I MEeeeeAN! they practically scream: I WILL MAKE YOUR SUMMER (& I HAVE STEAMY ROMANCE!)

    ReplyDelete
  142. I always find Sarah Dessen books perfect for summer reading. Particularly the books that have the beach in them.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Difficult question. I suppose I am happy reading anything. Seasons have very little impact on my reading moods. I suppose I've enjoyed the Sookie Stackhouse books that seem to release each May. =)

    ReplyDelete
  144. I have to say that the Harry Potter series are my favorite summer reads. I usually reread all seven each summer.

    ReplyDelete
  145. I love Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.

    ReplyDelete
  146. I love reading classics during the summer, for some reason. Something about the languid atmosphere of the season encourages my interest in them, I suppose because I have more time to really get into them. I love reading Jane Austen books, especially "Pride & Prejudice" and "Sense & Sensibility". Other than that, I love reading "Beauty Queens" by Libba Bray, which makes me laugh out loud, and I love that! :)

    ReplyDelete
  147. My favorite summer time reads right now are The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy!
