As we approach summer 2023, I’m excited to dive into a few books while also trying to study for my exam. I’ve curated a shortlist of 5 books I’m hoping to read this summer. I didn’t want to overwhelm myself, so I’ve kept it manageable and realistic. Here are 5 books on my summer reading list!
Love After Love by Ingrid Persaud
i started this but sadly got so carried away with other things/books but I’m excited to pick it up again. It’s one of the book recommendations for #ReadCaribbean and it’s set in Trinidad. Random fun fact – My boyfriend is Canadian/Trinidadian.
The perfect find by Tia Williams
I totally devoured Seven Days in June by Tia Williams back in 2021 and damn, did I love it! So imagine my surprise when I found out she had another book out. Of course, I had to get my hands on it ASAP. And guess what? I later stumbled upon the news that it’s being adapted into a TV series. Talk about timing! Apparently, the book was written way back in 2016. I can’t wait to dive into this one and see what the hype is all about!
A spell of good things by Ayobami Adebayo
Every Nigerian reader knows about Ayobami’s debut work- Stay with me. It’s such a classic! This was one of my most anticipated release this year. I had to make my parents bring me a copy from Nigeria. I’ve tried to avoid reviews and skim through any that popped up on instagram.
True love Experiment by Christina Lauren
I’ve only had the pleasure of reading one of Christina Lauren’s books so far, and I remember absolutely loving it. Needless to say, I’ve been eagerly anticipating this new release and was thrilled to find it at a discounted price. The buzz and glowing reviews surrounding this book have only heightened my excitement, and I am fully prepared to dive into its pages.
One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid
If you know me or have been following my blog, you’ll be well aware of how much I adore Taylor Jenkins Reid. Her storytelling is simply flawless, and she has truly mastered the art. Experiencing her books for the first time is a wish I have for every reader.
