My Top Ten All Time Favorite Summer Romance Reads

This week's Top 10 is a representation of our all time favorite books in a certain genre.  Well, since my favorite genre is contemporary and that list would be a hundred books long, I decided to narrow it down further.

Below are my top ten all time favorite summer romance reads.  With some of you still experiencing wintery conditions, I thought my list this week would at least put your thoughts in a warmer place.  Be sure to check out The Broke and the Bookish for more details on this awesome weekly feature.

  1. Glad to see you liked Open Road Summer so much that it made the list! I adore My Life Next Door and Wanderlove as well. Have you read The Book of Broken Hearts, The Summer I Became a Nerd, or Saving June? All swoony summer romances. :)

  2. Ohhhh SUCH great picks! I need to get around to reading more of this genre, I love it so much! I read My Life Next Door for the first time only recently and completely adored it. <3

  3. I have read everyone of those books minus Wanderlove. You have good taste. :-)

  4. I haven't read Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen yet but I do plan to try and collect some of her work, that being one of them and I haven't read any of your other choices, but I do hope to soon. Fantastic list Ginger :D

  5. I really need to get to My Life Next Door. I have it all ready to go, but haven't gotten to it yet!

  6. Yay!!! Thanks for sharing this! I have three days left 'til my summer break starts, this would be helpful <3

  7. Wow! Great list, Thanks for sharing :-)

  8. As a contemp reader myself I picked this genre too! I'm a little ashamed to say I haven't read My Life Next Door yet though... I promised myself I would finally get to it this year though! I hope to enjoy it as much as you did! Great list!

    Here's My TTT

  9. Gah! It is FINALLY warming up outisde, and I am definitely getting the summer romance fever! I think My Life Next Door is next up for me.

    Great list! ♥ I love so many of these. And it reminds me how much I need to read Wanderlove.

  10. Any summer romance list must have The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy. I'd also add Nantucket Blue.

  11. I've only read two of thse books. My Life Next Door - which I definitely enjoyed it, and In Honor - which I actually really didn't like. But, in all honesty, I'm not a huge fan of road trip books. It's not like I hate them, but I'm not drawn to them at all.

    I really do need to read Amy and roger though. I've heard such amazing things, and I actually own a copy of the book. I am SOOO ready for Summer. Or at least Spring :)

  12. I've been wanting to read The Summer I Turned Pretty FOREVVVER! Then I finally bought it and it just sits on my shelf! If I don't read it this summer there is something really wrong with me.

  13. Amy & Roger's Epic Detour is on my TBR ASAP list!!! My students just keep checking it out :)

  14. Great list - I'm really looking forward to reading Open Road Summer- sounds wicked good.

  15. Sarah Dessen and Jessi Kirby are my go-to authors when summer hits. I can't wait for warm weather, lemonade, and summer reading!

  16. IN HONOR! That is all.

    In all seriousness though, I've never felt that Kirby's work is given enough credit or attention and In Honor is undeniably my favourite of her three books. There was so much I loved about it, so I was super excited to see it included on your list this week :)

    There are so many others you've included that I currently own and are on my to-be-read list, like My Life Next Door, Along For The Ride, Wanderlove and Fixing Delilah. Sounds like I'll need to make these more of a priority come summer time!
