Is anyone else ready for the Summer to just BEGIN? I can’t be the only person who wants to sit by the water and just chill out. Not only chill out but to sit down and read. I think now is a good time to come up with the ultimate list of books to read this summer. There are cookies in this post, to learn more about them click here.
Knowing my reading obsession, Book of the Month Club is literally the best idea for me. The best idea for anyone who loves to read- and if you’re anything like me, you spend a lot of time at the book store searching for the one.
Book of the Month Club is a monthly subscription box that allows you to choose from a selection of books chosen by BOTM Judges. Right now they’re offering amazing deals (up to 3 months for just $10 a month!) and you’ll receive one book per month. AND if you like more than one book, you can purchase another for just $9.99 extra! All books are hard cover, so think about how much money you’re saving! It’s a heaven for book lovers.
From the 5 listed above, you can choose one as your BOOK of the month starting June 1st. After that you’ll be able to purchase your “extras” for only $9.99! Not sure if you’ll like it? Preview it: Sign up for just 1 month for only $10! Aside from my favorite subscription box, I also have a bookshelf with a wide selection to take from… thanks to my book shopping habits. I buy more books than I can read and that’s okay. One day I’ll need all of these books, right?
Below is a list of books that I’ve read, that I own, and that I’m looking to buy and read this summer. Those with a “BOTM offer” are books you may purchase your “extra” for only $9.99!
As you can see, a lot of these books were introduced to me from Book of the Month. Seriously, it has opened a lot of doors for me when it comes to finding new books to treasure. Modern Lovers is still my favorite from last summer, but I have had a lot of close seconds. For June Selections from Book of the Month Club I have chosen A Million Junes, and bought an extra book too (because I just couldn’t choose 😉 ). The extra book that I chose was The Sisters Chase.
p.s. if you post a pic of this card on Instagram (filled out) and tag @bookofthemonthclub– members who are reposted by @bookofthemonthclub receive 3 months free!
A list of 20 should be okay for now, and if you can read more than 20 books within a summer- I’m JEALOUS. I love keeping busy with my work, but I do miss the worlds I could get lost in that these books gave me. Anyone have any books they’d recommend that wasn’t mentioned in the list of books above? Please let me know! I’m always expanding my collection. 😉
Stay creative ♥
Found this just in time. Thanks for sharing.
Yay! I’m glad! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by ♥
I have so many books in my unready book draw that it can’t even close now! Reading is so relaxing and I wish I could do it more often!
I’m the same way! I buy more books than I can read! At least we know what we’re going to do on our days off, ha! Thanks for stopping by ♥
I wish I had time to finish 1 book this summer, let alone a whole list! ha
I feel the same way, Ryan. But I’m hoping that this list is more of a list of goals rather to-dos and just banging it out whenever I have “down” time. Happy Summer! & Thanks for stopping by 🙂
The 5 People You Meet in Heaven, one of my all time favs! I, too, can’t wait for summer to begin and to be able to sit outside for hours, doing nothing but getting lost in a book. Ah! Can’t wait!
Yesss! Just warm weather and longer days, that’s what I’m looking forward to! The Five People You Meet in Heaven is such a good book! I read it awhile ago so will have to re-read again soon. Thanks for stopping by ♥
Thanks for the list! I just got a library card (after living in this area for a year!) and needed a good place to start. I have read a few of these now I need to get to the rest of this list!
Yay! That’s awesome! I’ve only heard amazing things about the books on this list, so I hope you enjoy it! Happy Summer reading & thanks for stopping by ♥
This is such a great list of books. Summer is always my time to catch up on reading!
Mine too! I hope this list benefits you as much as it does for me! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by !
These sound great! I’ll have to read a couple this summer!
They are! Currently working on A Million Junes at the moment, so far so good! Let me know what you think if you start reading one & thanks for stopping by! 🙂
I wish I had time to read all these books! 1984 is a classic!
Right?? Definitely not enough time left in the day.. I haven’t started 1984 yet but I’m excited to! Only have heard good things 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
This looks like a good list! I think a book of the month is a great idea! I could find time to read one a month! I’ll check it out!
Isn’t it the best idea? When I first signed up I had feared that I wouldn’t be able to read a book a month, but receiving a book each month actually kept me on track to reading it before I could choose the next one.. I’m obsessed! Thanks for stopping by & let me know if you have any questions! ♥
Great tipps thank you! Chemestry looks really good!
Right! It might have to be my extra book next month! Thanks for stopping by ♥
I love BOTM too 😀 and because of my travel schedule, I had to stop. I discovered Modern Lovers and Couple Next Door and Enchanted Island (have you read it?!) thanks to BOTM. Book listed your other suggestions and perhaps will get to renewing my subscription 🙂 Subscribed to you now! Xx
I’ve read Modern Lovers and Couple Next Door! They’re the two books I couldn’t put down when I started reading, loved them both! That’s too bad about your traveling schedule, but I’m sure you’ll be able to re-subscribe one day soon! Thanks for the comment ♥
Some of these books look like ones I would enjoy if I could just take the time to sit and read. I have 5 on my kindle that are waiting for me. I love to read but with my work I never seem to take the time to do so. Thank you for such a great list, I will share it with my Mom.
I feel you, I have entire shelves of books waiting to read.. I can buy more faster than I can read, LOL! That’s why I like BOTM, it’s almost like you HAVE to finish your book before receiving your next month’s selections.. Thanks for the comment! ♥
Great list. I haven’t seen most of them but I will check them out on kindle unlimited. Check this other book out for a thrilling read. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01FTA9J7K
Will definitely have to check it out! Thanks for sharing! You’ve written this book? That’s awesome, congrats! Thanks for the comment 🙂
