Today, I’m going to be talking about a few books I bought last year that I ended up not reading, and I’d really like to read during this summer if I can (though I’m atrocious at sticking to a TBR so who knows if I actually will?!). Onto the post!
Love and Gelato – a book with an Italian setting and ice cream in the title seems like the dream summer book for me. I heard some less positive things about it last year just after it came out and it sort of put me off reading after I bought it, but now I’ve forgotten the criticisms I definetly want to get to it.
Eden Summer– this sounds a little darker than everything else on this list, as it’s about a girl dealing with the disappearance of her best friend, but I enjoy a good thriller from time to time so I think this should be a great, gripping read with some summery vibes.
When Birds Fly Back– this sounds like a lovely book, and I can’t believe I didn’t get to it last year. I was considering reading it after summer, but ended up deciding to leave it till this summer instead. As a sidenote, I am ridiculously excited to read this author’s upcoming MG book I, Cosmo, though I fear it may break me. It’s about a golden retriever who sounds so sweet, and I think we all know I love a golden retriever!
Piglettes– my friend Louise absolutely raves about this book, AND set me the challenge of reading it in the book swap challenge we decided to do together, so I kinda have to read it. It’s set in France and looks to tackle a really interesting topic (of judging others based on beauty), so I’m thrilled about finally getting to it
When We Collided– I read Emery Lord’s other books that are published in UK when I was on holiday last year, and it seemed only fitting to save this one for 2018. I’ve heard mixed things, but I’m hoping I enjoy it. I also found out another of Emery Lord’s backlist (Open Road Summer) is getting published in the UK this year and I’m so excited!
Are there any books you’d really like to get to this summer? What do you think of the books I’ve chosen? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter @GoldenBooksGirl!
