Hey guys!! I’m so excited to do another Top 5 Wednesday. I am super excited for this one because it has to do with Summer. Summer is my favorite time of the year. The theme is Summer Reads –The weather is heating up (for half of the world), so what books remind you of summer and are your quintessential summer reads?
Girl Out of Water By Laura Silverman
Reason: Okay so I’m so happy to have this 2017 debut author on my list. I read this book and I absolutely loved it. It deals with the main character basically not being able to take part in the summer she has been super excited for. It was really fun and enjoyable. It truly is a great coming of age story that I really highly recommend. I hope to reread this soon.
Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas
Reason: Okay so this isn’t a summer book it has to do with spring break but it gives me summer vibes. I mean just look at that cover doesn’t it scream summer. Plus when I read this it was summer time so that counts, right? I really enjoyed this book and it really kept me guessing until the end. If you haven’t read this you should check it out.
The Truth About Forever By Sarah Dessen
Reason: Okay so I’m really upset I waited so long to read this book. I really liked it a lot. It takes place in the summer. Macy spends her summer at a job where her coworkers don’t like her and she spend the rest of the day studying. She doesn’t have much of a life until she decides to work at a catering job. This was such a great story. I loved seeing the development of Macy. It really is such a great story that I have sat on for way too long.
The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line By Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham
Reason: This is another book that takes place during spring break but it also gives me summer vibes at the same time. I mean just look at the title and the book cover alone. I am a huge Veronica Mars fan and I am so happy these books were made to keep the spirit of the show going strong. I really enjoyed it and I have the second one waiting for me to read. I’m just not ready for it to be over. If you’re a fan of Veronica Mars than I highly recommend you check this out!
Anything that was written by Morgan Matson
Reason: I am a huge fan of Morgan. I’ve only read two of her books but this month I plan on reading the other two I haven’t read yet plus rereading the other books. I love Morgan’s books so much. They give off the ultimate summer vibes. I mean you really can’t go wrong with these books. They’re so fun.
Have you guys read any of the books on this list? What are some books that give you those summer vibes? I would love to hear what you guys have to say. Summer contemporaries are so fun to read.

I need to read Morgan Matson!! And all her books look SO SUMMERY!! Also, I LOVE reading mysteries like Dangerous Girls at the beach, so PERFECT summer book choice IMO. I don’t know what it is about suspense and mystery that makes me think beach, but it does!!
So far I’ve only read two Morgan Matson books and they were really enjoyable. Oh I’ve never even thought of that how you said suspense and mystery make you think of the beach but I like that. I did find Dangerous Girls extra fun because it was like this is a vacation I would want expect without the death.
The Truth About Forever was actually my first Dessen book – I can’t believe I put off trying her work for as long either!
It’s funny because I owned The Truth About Forever for years but finally didn’t pick it up until this year. It’s my favorite book by her so far. I’ve only read 3 of her books. I can’t wait for Once and for All.
