As it is now the start of June, it is officially Summer as far as I’m concerned – even if it’s still raining half the time! And one of the best parts of that is all the gorgeous summer book releases! May kicked off to a great start of summer reads, and there’s so many more fab ones due over the next couple of months that they definitely deserve their own post. So, in no particular order, here’s my Top 10 choices to get excited about this summer.
If you’re a follower of my blog you have probably heard me declare my undying love for Jenny Hale multiple times, and I assure you it’s with good reason! Jenny’s books are magical to me and Summer by the Sea is no exception.
Fairytale Beginnings, by Holly Martin
Publication date: July 10th
I have absolutely loved Holly Martin’s previous books, and doesn’t this just look like the perfect dreamy and romantic summer read? I plan to take this one to the park with a picnic and a bottle of wine!
Game of Scones, by Samantha Tonge
Publication date: April 20th
Game of Scones is a perfect beach read for lazy summer days. However – make sure you’ve packed a delicious picnic too as this book will make your stomach rumble reading about all the yummy scones!
Summer at Shell Cottage, by Lucy Diamond
Publication date: June 4th
To my shame I am still yet to read a Lucy Diamond book, even though I hear nothing but praise and I even have some on my shelves! This summer is the time to change that with the beautiful Summer at Shell Cottage.
The Sun in her Eyes, by Paige Toon
Publication date: May 20th
Paige Toon is another author who I unbelievably haven’t read yet *hangs head in shame*. However, her gorgeous new book has made me put my foot down and decide to change this. It’s been ordered and is hopefully finding it’s way to me right now!
A beautiful Greek island, a GORGEOUS exotic man and a heartfelt story make this the perfect read for sun, sand and sea (and cocktails!). Definitely make sure to take this one to the beach with you this summer.
Some Kind of Wonderful, by Sarah Morgan
Publication date: July 2nd
Some Kind of Wonderful is Book #2 in Sarah’s Puffin Island Trilogy. Having read and LOVED book one, First Time in Forever, I can’t wait to read this sequel. And just look at that gorgeously bright and summery cover!
The Little Flower Shop by the Sea, by Ali McNamara
Publication date: July 2nd
I simply adore everything about this. I’ve loved Ali’s past books, I love the title, I love the cover, I love the blurb. Just looking at it I feel summery. I really can’t wait to read this one.
Beautiful fellow book blogger from Becca’s Books has her debut novel coming out very soon and I could not be more excited! I have no doubts this is going to be superb.
What I love most about Sue Watson’s books is that they are guaranteed to be laugh-out-loud funny, and I don’t think this one will be any exception! From it’s popping cover with those gorgeous, girly brights and a seriously fun sounding bio, I am super excited about getting my claws on this one.
There really are a whole host more wonderful books out too – so much so that I’m already in panic-mode that I won’t be able to read them all. It was definitely tough picking just 10, but what a fab 10 they are, right?
Which book releases are you excited about this Summer? Any of these make the cut on your wishlist?
