Favorite Books for Summer


Recently, I have fallen back in love with books and the peaceful therapy that only reading a good book can offer. More than the fascinating characters and eclipsing stories, I have loved the connection I have shared with friends while recounting our memories through our reads.

The Idea of You by Robinne Lee kicked off my reading obsession for 2022.

Out of the dozens I have read this year, I am sharing some of my favorites. In no particular order:

  1. The Idea of You, Robinne Lee (Contemporary Romance)
  2. It Ends With Us, Colleen Hoover (Heavy Romance)
  3. ACOTAR series (5 books), Sarah J. Maas (Fantasy and Romance)
    • If you loved the Twilight series, you will love these books!
  4. The Love Hypothesis, Ali Hazelwood (Contemporary Romance)
  5. The Winemaker’s Wife, Kristin Hamel (Historical Fiction, Romance)
  6. The Hating Game, Sally Thorne (Contemporary Romance)
  7. Beach Read, Emily Henry (Contemporary Romance)
  8. The Lion’s Den, Katherine St John (Suspense, Thriller)
  9. The Mr Series (3 books) TL Swan (Romance)
  10. Reminder’s of Him, Colleen Hoover (Heavy Romance)
The ACOTAR series has to be my favorite of the year. 11/10 recommend!! *must read in order*

So far this year, we have read “Beautiful Country” by Qian Julie Wang, “The Girls Who Stepped Out of Line” by Mari Eder, “The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue” by V.E. Schwab, and “Every Last Secret” by A.R. Torre.
