Today’s theme is…
AMY & ROGER’S EPIC DETOUR BY MORGAN MATSON
Whenever I think about summer, two things come to mind: music and road trips. It’s the perfect season to go to the beach with your fam or on a spontaneous getaway with your friends, windows rolled down and indie pop music blaring and all that. Four years ago I read this marvellous book that, for me, is the epitome of summer reading. So if you love music and road trips – this one’s for you.
THINGS WE KNOW BY HEART BY JESSI KIRBY
A summer read should leave long-lasting effect on you even when the season is over. Like photographs in pockets, once you bring out the book, all these bright feelings come and rush over you. And this book was that for me. Every time I remember this book, I instantly feel all the feels. Cheesy yes, but this was a memorable summer of 2015 read for me.
FIVE FLAVOURS OF DUMB BY ANTONY JOHN
Summer, for me, is the most memorable time of the year. Other than you have two months of school break, there’s just a lot to do when you have all the time in the world. One summer I went to an amusement park with friends, and one summer I went to a concert, and another went swimming with my fam. Those summers are worth revisiting every once in a while. Just like how much I love revisiting this book. It’s a unique story – a deaf girl who becomes one band’s manager – and one I won’t forget.
MADE YOU UP BY FRANCESCA ZAPPIA
Sometimes summer brings in rain showers – or at least here in the Philippines. It’s a day ruiner – once you see the dark clouds in the sky covering the sun. This book deals with mental illness and it’s just like a rainy summer. It’s gloomy, yes, but it’s all in how you look at it. I didn’t expect this book to be as witty and charming despite its serious themes. I enjoyed every page of it. So, don’t let a rainy day ruin your summer!
THE COLOR PROJECT BY SIERRA ABRAMS
Summer of 2017 has been amazing so far. I just finished studying for college entrance exams later this year, I’m finally engaging in a healthy lifestyle (aka exercising lol), and I’m reading more again lately. Though this book isn’t out until July, I dare say this one is the most summer I could possibly obtain from a book. It’s cute and colourful, and I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much after a rocky start.
