  2. Ever since I saw the cover I've been dying to read The Lake Effect. The fact that it has some quirky characters calls to me.

  5. I am sad that summer is nearly over but at least there is pumpkin spice to look forward to :)

    I can't believe I still haven't read The Lake Effect yet! I had hoped to read it this summer. Not sure I'll get to around to it. I loved The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.

    Certainly lots of great summer books this year. If only summer was longer!

  7. I have only read the YA books, but I have many of these on my TBR. These are great picks for summer reads, because they fit that vibe of light and breezy, which I associate with summer reads (well, I can attest that the YA books fit).

  10. "Which book do you want to win? Let me know!" I would choose "The Lake Effect." I checked Amazon, and the opening is engaging and well-written!

  11. Summer is getting closer and closer in my country, so any of these books would be perfect! ♥ I want to read so many of them, I don't know which one I'd choose! Once and for all, perhaps?
