Top 5 Saturday: Summer Reads on my TBR!

It’s time for another Top 5 Saturday, a weekly meme created by Mandy @ Devouring Books and this week’s topic is: summer reads. For most of the western hemisphere, summer has come and has either gone or is slowly being eclipsed by cooler breezes and brisker climes as autumn/fall comes in. Lucky for me, I live in the tropics so summer is pretty much a year-round deal (I admit to being a little jealous of the cooler climes because I LOVE fall weather)! Last month, I did a Friday Favorites: Summer Reads post where I focused on the genres I liked to read poolside: Romance, Thrillers, and YA SFF. For this post, I thought I’d specifically look at the top five summer romance reads that are sitting high on my TBR!

Say You Still Love Me by K. A. Tucker
I’ve heard so many good things about Say You Still Love Me and its second-chance romance. I’ve heard it’s done really well, so I’m excited to check it out! I read my first Tucker book, The Simple Wild, last month and I absolutely adored it. I fell in love with the beautiful setting and while some characters took some time to grow on me, all of them eventually stole my heart!

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
don’t think any summer would be complete without a book by Christina Lauren. They do romances so well and have written so many stories and characters I love! The Unhoneymooners has been all over everyone’s blogs and booksta feeds full of praise and love for the characters. I don’t know why I’ve been sitting on this one, but being set in Hawaii, it seems like the perfect summer read!

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman
What could be better than reading about a character who’s just as much of a bookworm as you are? This has been another very hyped read over the summer and many have loved it! I can’t wait to see if I’m one of them, and I’m keen to find out just how much of myself I’ll see in Nina’s character.

The Mother Road by Meghan Quinn
Maybe it’s a little cliche but so many summer adventures start with people setting off on a road trip, so why not read a romance with a quirky family and a crazy but hilarious sounding road trip? I’ve only read two books by Meghan Quinn but have loved them both, and this one sounds really cute and fun!

Evvie Drake Starts Over by Linda Holmes
This is another book that I’ve seen on everyone’s bookstagram feeds over the summer and it sounds like the perfect ‘starting-over’ summer read about second chances (in life and love) and I can’t wait to read it (maybe by next summer? Lol)!

What are your top five summer reads? Any of these

      1. I have found Christina Lauren to be a little bit and miss though. Loved Hazel and Josh?? Josh and Hazel??? And something about a dating guide???? Good lord my memory sucks, I can’t remember the title at all πŸ™ˆ but I loved that whatever it was called. However Roomies can choke….. I HATED that book and the faux Irish accent. I was so triggered πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

        1. HAHAHA Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating! I looooved that one. Hazel was so the best 😍Oh and yeah, Roomies was definitely not my favorite of theirs although I didn’t think it was the worst? But I can totally see where you’re coming from with the faux Irish accent LMAO πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ

  1. So I ALMOST added The Bookish Life of Nina Hill on my list, but since it’s not normally my type of book I didn’t add it. I have heard nothing but amazing things about it though! The Mother Road also looks really cool, so I’m excited to add that to my TBR. I just finished reading a book about a road trip and really loved it (it was Unpregnant and I gave it 5 stars.) Thanks for joining again Dini!!

        1. I love posting every week! It not only gives me something to fill my Saturdays with but it helps me keep the momentum of my blog going. I’m proud that I’ve only missed one Saturday coz of a wedding! LOL Hopefully I won’t miss another!


          1. Omg I didn’t realize you got married!! Congrats!! I knew it was a wedding but I didn’t realize it was YOURS! I have had fun doing it and honestly I feel like I’ve grown closer to the people who participate every week.

          2. Nooooo it wasn’t my wedding!!! Hahahaha I’m dead single so there’s no way that’s happening anytime soon! Hahaha I hope I didn’t say anything that gave the impression it was my own? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I’m so sorry if I did!
            But yes! I’m so glad I’m part of the blogger group that does this weekly meme! Definitely feel like we’ve all come closer together. So glad I came across it πŸ˜ƒ
