Summer Girl’s Reading List

…best read sunbathing on the beach, or in your garden/ on your balcony/ by the lake πŸŒ΄β˜€πŸŒΈπŸΉ

Here is an overview of what I have read these past weeks, plus a short comment per book. Feel free to disagree or explore.

1. The Hating Game, Sally Thorne
Set in an office in Britain, two rivals, one male and one female. I loved the different kind of heroine, her fashion sense and hilarious humour. Witty dialogues and some romance. *****

2. The Right Swipe, Alisha Rai
Set in California, the heroine is a businesswoman in the online dating world. Easy to read, fast-paced and sexy, but not really memorable characters, I feel. ***-****

3. Stuck-up Suit, Vi Keeland
A hot guy loses his phone, she gives it back, he is an ass. Lean back and enjoy the ride. I certainly did. *****

4. Walk of Shame, Lauren Layne
Different, set in NY, a bit more glamorous romance. I enjoyed both protagonists a lot, plus the female’s neurotic and quirky world and her no-shame attitude. Could not put it down!! *****

5. Dance Away with Me, Susan Elizabeth Phillips
A new one by one of my favourite authors, and again I could not stop reading this romance novel! The characters are believable and round, and the setting is loveable somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Easy to read and predictable, yet in a very enjoyable way. ****

6. Little Fires Everywhere, Celeste Ng
Must read! Quick, unexpected, lots of characters and plot twists that kept me wondering. *****

7. Everlasting, Nancy Thayer
Set in the 60s, the female protagonist makes her own way to be a businesswoman. Deals with family and what we do for parents/siblings, too. Very non-judgmental, but for me it lacked a real plot twist or highlight. **

8. Until I’m Yours, Kennedy Ryan
Loved it, loved the β€œbadβ€œ girl with a good heart that does her thing, and the man that wants to save the poor and her, kind of, as well as all the steamy romance (details). Super beach read. ****

9. The minute I saw you, Paige Toon
One of my favourite authors at her best. Credible characters, deep topics, adorable heroine. Loved it! Plus, set in Cambridge:) ***** +

10. If you could go anywhere, Paige Toon
Maybe because I had liked the previous one, this came as a bit of a disappointment to me. Still, it is set in Australia, Rome and other Italian cities as well as Norway, so I could relate to it well. The heroine is awesome, but I disliked the tormented yet beautiful Italian guy she fancied. ***
