Introduction to "Summer Kickoff" Feature


No one has better captured what I love about summer more than the incredible Jenny Han and her Summer series. When Jenny Han said, “For me, it was almost like winter didn’t count. Summer was what mattered. My whole life was measured in summers" in The Summer I Turned Pretty, I went YES. She gets me. And that is why I am so excited to share my favorite beach reads with you during this entire month of May since May is the unofficial start to summer. For me, nothing beats a day at the beach with a good book and some sunshine.

Can you believe it is my 4th Summer Kickoff? Check out previous years if you are curious what I have reviewed/showcased in the past.

This year, I'll be featuring adult novels, just released young adult novels and of course, some oldies-but-goodies. Plus, there will be some awesome giveaways, too! In fact, my first giveaway and review will be posted later today!

If you are like me and you live for summertime, then check out my reviews this month and hopefully I will have inspired you to add some books to your beach bag or pool bag this summer.

Photos taken at the Jersey Shore, Maui, Capri, Jamaica, Florida, and the Outer Banks.
I'll leave you with a sort of embarrassing photo collage of me through the years displaying my lifetime love affair with beaches, pools, and summertime fun.  Don't judge my awesome 80s bathing suits; I thought they were pretty rad at the time!

  6. I just ordered this for my Nook. I am a beach girl too, always have been! And I think I'll like the book because I loved one of your last recommendations. (Jane Green's Tempting Fate). Looking forward to reading this one, even if I don't get to the beach for a bit. :)
