Books are definitely seasonal. Anyone who tries to convince you otherwise is lying.
Personally, I am a seasonal reader. I relish in planning what books to read depending on the weather. It’s a skill, what can I say. After all, there is nothing better than soaking in the heat with a book in one hand and a mojito in the other.
Without further ado, here is a well loved list of my favourite Summer reads.
I’ll Give You The Sun – Jandy Nelson
Jude and her twin brother, Noah went from being incredibly close to strangers in three years. A traumatic even pulled the twins in different directions, pulling them further and further apart. Split between then and now, the early years follow Noah’s story, whereas the later years follows Jude’s.
