Books For The Beach

It’s that time of year again when we start thinking about which books to squeeze into our holiday suitcases. Summer is the perfect season for catching up on reading – whether that’s discovering new books or rediscovering old favourites – and we’re looking forward to taking advantage of the (hopefully) nicer weather and relaxing in the sunshine with a good book. Here are just a few of the titles we’re hoping to read this summer:

Summer Days and Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories
Edited by bestselling author Stephanie Perkins, and including contributions written by YA fan favourites Leigh Bardugo, Cassandra Clare and Libba Bray, this anthology of short but sweet love stories really is the perfect beach read!

Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor
A new Laini Taylor novel is always cause for celebration, and this September release is no exception. Said to be about “alchemy and blood candy, nightmares and godspawn, moths and monsters, friendship and treachery, love and carnage”, we can’t wait to start turning the pages of this exciting new release!

The Thousandth Floor by Katherine McGee
Already in development as a possible television series, this futuristic drama, set in the year 2118, revolves around a group of teenagers living in a thousand-storey skyscraper, and the impact of one girl’s death on the lives of the group.

Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
Top of our list for a re-read this summer is Isaac Marion’s wonderful zombie romance. Can R and Julie overcome the obstacles involved in a zombie/human relationship, work together to change their world, and find their happily-ever-after ending? Read it and find out – we guarantee you won’t regret it!
