Recently Read

There is nothing I love more than heading down to the pool or curling up in bed after a busy day with a good book. There is something about the summer that just makes me want to read all the time. This summer, I've already read 3 books and I thought now would be the perfect opportunity for me to share what I thought of them!

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
You all may have heard of this book because the movie just came out. I have yet to see the movie, but I absolutely loved the book. It was so easy to read, I didn't want to put it down! It's a story of a girl who has a disease that makes her basically allergic to the world. As a result, she can't go outside. But then a boy moves in next door and the story traces their love story as they deal with her condition. I don't want to say too much, but I fell absolutely in love with both main characters by the end of it. This book is absolutely perfect for reading by the pool.

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
I've always been a huge Sarah Dessen fan, I think I've read pretty much every book she has released. But I had yet to read her newest Saint Everything, so I figured summertime was the perfect opportunity to read it. It definitely was not my favorite Sarah Dessen book(Lock and Key<3), but it was a cute love story. I just thought it was a little drawn out and a little dark. The premise is basically a girl who always ended up in the shadow of her brother. She switches schools and makes friends with a family that welcomes her wholeheartedly and makes her feel loved. She meets a guy and the story follows their journey to a relationship as well as her family piecing themselves back together. In the end, I liked the story and if you're a Sarah Dessen fan you should read it, but otherwise I would pass. 

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
I have mixed feelings about this book but I think that it simply because it wasn't the lighthearted fun summer book that I was craving. But it is a beautiful story with a very poetic ending. The book is about two people, Finch and Violet, who are dealing with their own struggles with death. They meet on top of the bell tower at school and their story continues when they begin to work on a school project together. The book traces their crazy adventures together and their struggles. It's a book that I definitely didn't want to put down. I guess I was just slightly dissatisfied with the ending. I still would recommend reading it, just maybe when you're curled up by the fire in the winter instead of the pool in the summer. 

I just put some more books on hold at the library, so let me know if you liked this post and I could definitely do another one. Also, leave any book recommendations down below, I would love to have some more books to add to my list!
