•MY SUMMER READS 2016 •

1:00 pm

I was very inspired by Zoe's Book Club which she launched earlier this year. I do love to read but I feel like, in the social media world, it is always the last thing on my list! I am so guilty of choosing Netflix or Youtube over a good book, however, over this summer I have been pretty ill with various infections and have spent a lot of my time in my house or having long baths. I got through quite a few so I thought I would share!! 

If you read my July Favourites then you would have read that I loved All The Bright Places - Jennifer Niven.  I heard so many great things about this but when Zoe added it to her book club I had to have it! Like I mention I honestly couldn't put this down, it is a love story with a very different and sad ending, following Theodore Finch and Violet Markey. It has some tough subject matters but with some great life lessons.
Another book from Zoe's Book Club that I loved is  Beautiful Broken Things - Sara Barnard. First of all,  I love the cover, the colours are so pretty, Zoe did a great job at changing it.
The book itself is great, it follows Caddy, Rosie, and their new friend Suzanne. The book turned out not exactly how I imagine it would go. The book, just like ATBP has very sad points as well as happy points. I think this book is great in realising everyone is going through their own struggles.
Sticking with the theme of Zoella, I finished Girl Online: On Tour- Zoe Sugg I started this at the start of the year but I just never really got into it. I know it is aimed at the younger audience and I am not sure if that is why. Nevertheless,  I picked up from where I started and ended up really enjoying the book. I loved that the theme is love but also all the way through Penny suffers from anxiety. I can relate to this character as I think many others can. I honestly can't wait for the next book to be released.
The next book,  I actually found on Amazon after browsing for new books and that is Four: A Divergent Collection- Veronica Roth. I mentioned in my April Favourites and my Two Weeks in Malta posts that I really enjoyed the Divergent series so I thought it was great that there was another book.  It wasn't exactly what I thought it was going to be. I thought it was what Four was up to after Allegiant finishes, however, it is about Four's life before and during the books! I really enjoyed the book and if you are a Divergent fan then I would 100% recommend.
I have already read this book back in High School but after I bought it in America I thought I would give it another read.  The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time- Mark Haddon follows a boy named Christopher who has autism. Not to give the plot away that much, but he finds a dog killed in his neighbours garden, in which he is determined to find out what happened. The book is funny but also very sad but gives you a good insight of an autism sufferer.
And lastly, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child- J.K Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Throne I was such a big Harry Potter fan as a child so when I found out there was a new book it was very exciting,  I never knew, however, it was going to be in a script version. Nevertheless,  I have actually only started this book  a few days ago and I have already finished it. I thought the start went quite quick,  you are three years in and it is only page 30 something? The rest has been  super intense and packed with 'magical action', it  makes me want to read the whole book series again!!!

Can't believe summer is nearly over, although I honestly can't wait for Autumn.
Is there any books that you feel like I need to read?? Let me know?
Have you read any of my summer reads, what did you think?
