I should say "books I'd love to read this summer because with the a) amount of work I am doing freelance, b, having a 2 1/2 year old boy, c) giving birth in the middle of July and d) having my mom visit for a few months, I thiiink I won't be having much time for reading" but a girl can dream right?
So I added a few new books to my to-be-read list on Goodreads.com, some by recommendations and some because of their covers, yes. because some bookstagrammers are so good at taking pictures of their books that you just need to get them/read them.

This book has been highly hyped in every bookstagram account! I've heard of this author but all of the sudden she's the Shakespeare of young adult literature. Someone told me she's more of an indie writer but avid readers love her so I thought I'd give her a chance!
Made in the U.S.A.

I am currently reading this novel and I like it so far. It has a quick pace and the plot is gripping. I picked it up at a stand my library made of "destination" books along with two other ones that I haven't started yet.
The Brilliant Light of Amber Sunrise
by Matthew Crow
This is totally a cover read, and I already have it waiting for me at the library. I saw it on an Intagram account and I wrote down all the titles she had on that particular photo. Even though it has 3.29 stars and I try to read 3.80 and above, I must say I've read books with higher scores that I didn't like at all so maybe this book is good and it's interesting that it's written by a guy, so we'll see.
The Wrong Side of Right
Another cover read, I don't care :P
The Unexpected Everything
I don't know about this one. I couldn't finish the first book I read by this author because the pace was extremely slow, the main character was annoying, there seem to be some cheating about to happen and the dialogues were interrupted by a bunch of description. A fellow reader told me to give this book a chance but he did warn me that Matson's style was the same so I am not sure I'll want to read it.
by R.S. Grey
This is by a writer that I follow on IG and she seems to be a very successful one with her own following but I can't get her books at my library. She only sells by Amazon and right now due to budget and space I am limiting my book purchases, especially when I haven't read anything by the author. This book is definitely on my tbr list, though.
What books are you planning on reading this Summer? Any suggestions for me? What do you think about these books, have you read any of them?
