Summer Reads – Top 5 Tuesday

Do you have favourite genre or book to read in the summer? I feel like contemporary books are the most summery, but I’m not good at sticking to a single genre. That being said, these are just cute, feel-good, beach or summery reads.

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme that the lovely Bionic Bookworm does. If you are interested in doing any of her topics on your blog she welcomes it! Don’t forget to check out her upcoming topics if you’re interested in participating in future Top 5’s! Be sure to check out her post here!

My Favourite Summertime Reads:

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

When Dimple Met Rishi and From Twinkle with Love by Sandhya Menon

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda (Creekwood, #1)

Simon vs. and Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli


Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

And to switch it up slightly: graphic novels! Right now I’m reading DC Bombshells and Tomb Raider graphic novels.


Do any of these books make your summer reads list? Do you gravitate towards something completely different like sci-fi, westerns or historical fiction in the summer? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I’m totally with you about the summery reads most likely being contemporary. I mean, just one genre is a bit much to stay with, but it’s what I always get drawn back to each summer. I sadly haven’t read too many of your contemporary choices! D: But they do sound great for summer. Wonderful picks! 🙂

      • I vaguely plan. But since I usually have about 3 or more audiobooks that come in at the same time (looking at you Life L1k3, Smoke in the Sun, Legendary, and As Old As Time right now, with Warstorm just becoming available) and a bunch of physical books I have a general plan but just end up reading whatever one strikes my fancy at the time.

        Like last week I wanted to read Smoke in the Sun, but the audiobook was just making me angry so I switched to Legendary and requested the physical copy of Smoke (which still hasn’t come). But I also have the physical copy of Legendary checked out because sometimes I end up getting the same book in both formats at the same time.

        So that’s an impossible question to answer and why this response was waaaaay too long. I give myself a selection to choose from for the month and then my moods take me where they will. Eventually, I’ll read everything that month that I checked out from the library. If that makes any sense.

      • ahahahaha oh NO. I think that’s the worst part of the library is because they always seem to get swoop in at the same time and then you’re just looking at all of them like but I want to read them alllllll??? Way too many. But I do like that plan.
