Summer is officially ending in my world as I begin a new chapter in the classroom teaching! I thought I'd take this time to reflect back on the books I've read this summer, sort of like a round-up post to highlight my favorites and discuss some not-so favorites.
Since Last Summer by Joanna Philbin - add to goodreads
Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren - add to goodreads
"JUST ONE NIGHT is like tasting the icing on the most delicious cake... reminding you why Gayle Forman is such an exceptional storyteller and how her brilliant mind can weave such an unforgettable tale."
"TWENTY BOY SUMMER is so much more than just a story about two girls and how they spent their summer at the beach. It digs deep with emotion, balancing the act of grief and forgiveness, all while presenting a glimmer of hope."
"I devoured each and every page, soaking up the brilliance of Perkins' genius story-telling. She has a way of making you fall in love with the characters, becoming a part of their world, yet leaving you with your own personal reflections and feel-good thoughts upon reading that final page."
- Ginger @ GReads!
Since Last Summer by Joanna Philbin - After reading (and loving) the first book in this companion series, I was eager to get my hands on this next one. Unfortunately it let me down in a big way. Such a disappointment.
Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas - A book that took me out of my comfort zone of reading and introduced me to YA thrillers. This was a major page-turner, one that definitely left me surprised!
Boomerang by Noelle August - This New Adult book was such a pleasant surprise, delivering a fun, sexy read without all the drama and angst I've found so often in most NAs.

Summer, you have been very HOT, but oh so much fun. I've spent the last three months soaking up tons of sunshine, while relaxing before the waves of reality hit. As most of you know, I've started my last semester of student teaching and with it has come some pretty major changes in my life. I'll always look back on this summer with a smile, remembering those little moments I held close to my heart, just before I embarked on this next chapter of my life.
So long summer.... until next year year ;)
