Top Shelf: Best Summer Reads

Today, I'm sharing a recap of my summer reads--the good, the bad and the ugly. Just kidding! If it's not worth reading, I won't mention it. I have kept a good pace this summer with my reading, a mix of audiobooks, print and digital reads through Libby. Here's a quick recap if you're looking for your next book!

Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros - I finished my favorite book of summer on Memorial Day weekend. If you're interested in learning more, I've got a whole review. Just get this book and read it--you won't regret it, and you'll be ready for the sequel coming out in November!

Blood and Ash series by Jennifer L. Armentrout - After reading Fourth Wing, I was in the mood for more fantasy. While these books didn't capture my attention the way Fourth Wing did, I was entertained. The series isn't complete, however, with another book coming out next year. The last book, A Soul of Ash and Blood, was unfortunately very repetitive.

True Love Experiment by Christina Lauren - Highly recommend. It's romance, and I loved the main character, Fizzy, who originated in The Soulmate Equation. It's an easy, fun read, and Christina Lauren novels are always well-written!

Food Rules by Michael Pollan - I'm really focused on eating healthier, more whole foods. This book breaks down this basic concept in some memorable ways, such as “Don’t eat breakfast cereals that change the color of your milk.” It's a very short, simple book, but inspired me to keep focusing on this goal.

Practice Makes Perfect by Sarah Adams - I'm listening to this one on audiobook, and I'm only halfway through. It has had a few sappy moments, but I like the loquaciousness of the main character, Annie. The writing is descriptive, and the audiobook narrators were well chosen.

Samantha will be back in a few weeks with her summer reading review. Stay tuned!
