TOP FIVE WEDNESDAY: Top five summer reads

(Top Five Wednesday was created by GingerReadsLainey. Find out more at the Goodreads group!)

Summer is well on its way, and I'm so happy! I hate the cold and I love being able to wear shorts and t-shirts without taking a jumper along.
If you haven't already worked out what you're going to read this summer, I highly recommend you pick up at least one of these five - they're perfect for long hot nights.

5) 'Warm Bodies' by Isaac Marion
Probably the least summery of my summer reads, but for some reason I treat 'Warm Bodies' like chick-lit: I re-read it every summer, sat on a blanket in my garden with my sunglasses on. Zombies have never been scarier, honest!

4) 'Wild Swans' by Jessica Spotswood
This book is so brilliant that there's never a bad time to read it. Summer will work just as well as any other season!

3) 'Burn For Burn' by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian

The first book in this series is all about revenge and female empowerment. What could be better for summer?

2) 'Stolen' by Lucy Christopher
Only pick this one up if you want a dark read: it's about a kidnapping and the main character suffers awfully from Stockholm Syndrome. However, it's also set in Australia - what could feel more summery than reading about beautiful clear nights under a blanket of stars? 

1) 'My Life Next Door' by Huntley Fitzpatrick
When life goes wrong, Sam makes the famous Reed family lemonade. What could be more summery? Combine that with the gorgeous cover... Ahh. 

I hope you enjoyed this Top Five Wednesday! What books will you be reading this summer?


  1. Stolen was a good read. It feels like I read it AGES ago! Great Top 5! :D
    My T5W!

    1. I need to reread it soon, because I can't remember much about it other than the fact that it destroyed me emotionally. Thanks! :)

  2. Warm Bodies is a great read!

    1. It's the best, I can't wait for the sequel to be released!
