Books For Thought: Which Summer books do you recommend we read?

Previously known as Monday's Question of the Day, Books For Thought is a feature where I post a book-related question up for discussion. I am open to all opinions and enjoy reading diverse comments from my lovely followers. I look forward to picking your minds!

Have a question idea? Share it here and I'll feature your blog in this post.

Summer is officially creeping up on us and that means beach weather! Which Summer books do you recommend to those bookworms reading under their umbrellas?

My Response: These are my picks for Summer:
  • Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson -- it's an adorable road trip story that'll leave you smiling from start to finish.
  • The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han -- I've never read this one, but it has great reviews and the title has Summer in it. ;)
  • Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles -- Hot boys that'll melt you in the Summer heat.
  • Goddess of the Sea by P.C. Cast -- Best mermaid story I've read so far.
  • Enclave by Ann Aguirre and Divergent by Veronica Roth -- both of these reads will rock your dystopian socks off. I loved them both dearly and what's Summer without some sweaty, heart pumping action!
What are your bookish thoughts?

Ooh, Enclave and Divergant sound like excellant summer reads.
I would recommend the whole Harry Potter series; its my summer read at the moment and I'm already up to the fourth book. :)

The Haunting of Orchid Forsythia

Jennifer Echols's Endless Summer, perfect summer read.

Here are my three recommendations that will go up on my blog tomorrow:

Story of Beautiful Girl by Rachel Simon: If you read my review you will understand why I suggest this.

• The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark: I read this book for a class and absolutely fell in love with it. It is a light-hearted novel that follows the "Brodie Girls" during their time with an eccentric teacher, Miss Brodie and then where they all ended up- whether it be Miss Brodie's predictions or not.

• Carrie Pilby by by Caren Lissner: A light-hearted story of a young girl (who is a genius) trying to escape her social awkwardness. She and her therapist make a list of basic things to try. While completing these things on the list, crazy characters enter her life, making it more interesting than the inside of her apartment.

I adore Amy and Roger's...and I'm not even a contemp fan! I totally second your recommendation ;)
Hm...I recently won a 2-in-1 summer read by Allison Noel. I haven't gotten to it yet, but it's summery and I'd say go for that! I know I'm saving it for the summer, and, like I said, I don't even like contemporary so much. :)
