Must-Have Summer Reads || Summer Lovin’ 2013

Today’s participation post at the Summer Lovin’ Read-A-Thon we are discussing must have summer reads. Some of these picks aren’t exactly summer related, but hey, a good book is a good book, right? These are the picks I could read over and over again.

The Lux Series, by Jennifer Armentrout


The hot alien living next door marked me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Anna and the French Kiss, by Stephanie Perkins

Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris–until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all…including a serious girlfriend. But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?

The Unseen Series, by Richie Tankersley Cusick

Out walking alone one rainy night, Lucy becomes convinced that someone – or something – is following her. Spooked, she ducks into a cemetery to try and lose her stalker. Panicking in the darkness, she slips and stumbles into an open grave – only to discover she is not alone in there. She manages to escape, but soon begins having terrifying visions and dreams – and she still can’t shake the feeling of an unseen presence, always watching, waiting… Who was the girl in the grave? And what did she do to Lucy?

I admit, I was going to add some Richelle Mead and Cassandra Clare books, but it seems like those are among the most popular YA books out now and these are lesser known gems. Well, except for Anna.

What are your favorite summer reads? I am always looking for more books to add to my ever growing TBR pile.
