Top 5 Saturday: Summer Reads

Top 5 Saturday: Summer Reads

So Hurricane Dorian didn’t end up hitting my house as badly as it could have, which I am so thankful for. I’m glad that my work and the City of Norfolk ended up closing though, because downtown was pretty flooded from what I saw. I would not have wanted to be stuck in there.

Thanks again to Mandy @ Devouring Books for hosting this weekly meme! I wonder what I will end up choosing for summer reads, since I clearly can’t read books while on vacation. If you guys remember when I was in Hawaii, I don’t think I read anything at all!

So I did a post for Summer Reads with Friday Favorites back in July – which you should totally check out by the way – and since I can’t really always put the same books on each list even if I wanted to, I’ll see what else I feel works well as a summer read!

Anything mermaid or ocean related is totally on my summer list. I still need to find this book honestly, but I am low-key obsessed with mermaids so why would I not want to read this?

I think I like the cover. It’s so pink, and like… it looks so pretty! Summer is supposed to be about pretty stuff, right?

You know you love me. XoXo. Gossip Girl.

I mean how can you not want to read this? It screams guilty pleasure, reading about these rich trust fund bitches who waste their parents money and have fun while they’re at it? It’s disgustingly fun.

That cover is to die for. Can I live in the ocean and just not deal with human problems? Do they have books down there?

Give. Me. All. The. Mermaid. Mythology. Books!

See, I totally chose different books this time so yay me! I know some people aren’t much into summer reads, and more into other seasons, so what is on your list? Have you read any of these books yet? Should I immediately read one of these? Let me know!

  1. So glad to hear that you’re safe and that your house wasn’t badly damaged. There’s been so much coverage on the hurricane, even as far as I am internationally. It’s so devastating 😔Big panda hugs your way! 🐼
    Great summer list, Leelynn. Can’t ever go wrong with Gossip Girl, though I think the A-List would also be a great summer read addition! 😍

    1. Thank you so much, Dini. I was super lucky for sure. I hope nobody you know was affected either 😦 I couldn’t imagine what I would do.

      Gossip Girl!!! It makes me want to watch a little bit of it again. And ugh I need to finish The A-List because I love having the UES Old-Money Anna with the Beverly Hills New Money bitches haha


      1. No, nobody I know was affected either. The family I have in the US are based in Maryland, and they’re fine!
        Omg, I wonder if I can find GG and A-List for my Kindle! It’ll be so interesting to read them now and see what I think of them 😂 I actually don’t think I ever finished both of these series! Wonder how they end in the books. I’m gonna check it out lol

        1. If I remember correctly, in the books you never find out who GG is, so that would be a total letdown for me ONLY because I want to know who it could be?! Haha. And yeah I never finished The A List either. I remember reading the It Girl which is the GG spinoff about Jenny and that one was pretty good too!
