Today is day 2 of the Summer Lovin’ Read-a-thon
. So far, I’m doing well with my goals, but I haven’t been able to get around to other people’s posts as much as I would like. My internet connection has been really spotty for the past two days and it’s making it very hard to get anything done! I’m hoping to go visit more challenge entries today, though (cross your fingers for me that the guy who comes out this afternoon can actually fix the problem!).
Today’s topic is My Top Must-Have Summer Reads. I’ve seen lots of good ideas out there! I have to confess that I don’t really have specific books that I read during the summer and I rarely re-read books, but I do have quite a few books that I’m looking forward to reading this summer, so I’ll just list those (most of these are lighter, summery reads, but I had to throw in a couple of paranormal/fantasies that I can’t wait to read!)
My Summer Reads
Lola and the Boy Next Door
by Stephanie Perkins – I read Anna and the French Kiss last month and loved it. I’d really like to read Lola and the Boy Next Door soon – maybe I’ll even get to it this week! Have to have a good love story to read over the summer, right?
by Colleen Hoover – Another romance that I’ve heard amazing things about. I have to read this to find out what everyone’s been talking about!
Gameboard of the Gods
by Richelle Mead – I absolutely love Richelle Mead and I’m really looking forward to reading her newest book. I have to get this one SOON!
by J.R. Johansson – I just won a signed copy of this book and was so excited because I’ve really been looking forward to reading it! It seems dark, but really intriguing. Can’t wait to get it!
You Look Different In Real Life
by Jennifer Castle – This seems like a fun read. I might not normally have picked it up, but I read reviews on a few of the blogs that I follow and it sounds really good!
The Moon and More
by Sarah Dessen – Everyone talks about Sarah Dessen and how her books are perfect summer reading. I’ve never read one of her books, but I just won a copy of The Moon and More, so I’ll get to find out firsthand what everyone’s talking about!
Okay, I’m no graphic designer, but I thought this was fun and I would give it a shot. For my cover re-design I decided to do The Fault in Our Stars by John Green because I loved the book, but the cover was kind of boring. Honestly, I don’t know that my cover is perfect for the book, but I think it’s pretty! I found this starry wallpaper background online and modified it a bit so that it would work for a book cover.
