  1. Great lists! Some of these made mine too, and I’d definitely enjoy reading “Since You’ve Been Gone” since I hear it’s Morgan’s best. Also, “Etiquette and Espionage” looks amazing, and after loving the film, I’d like to read “The 5th Wave” (despite all the reports of it being drastically different). ‘Isla’ as well as ‘Lola’ are on my must read list too! 🙂


  2. I love your lists. Each one is so different but filled with such awesome books. I have basically only read some of the ones on Kelly’s list (Kelly…if you get into the Grisha stuff OMG LET ME KNOW) but a lot of contemporary that I have heard so much about. Happy beach reading!


  3. Sooooo many great pics on your lists! I particularly loved The Summer of Chasing Mermaids, Open Road Summer, Anna and the French Kiss, Since You’ve Been Gone and Isla and the Happily Ever After!

    My TTT!


  4. I’m definitely interested in seeing how Nevernight is as I’ve yet to read something by Jay Kristoff. But for whatever reason I can never do YA books as beach reads, I think I get too stressed about finishing a series haha


  5. Nice list! Absolutely love Perkins’ books. Lola and the Boy Next Door was my fav (the quirky ones always are). 🙂 The 5th Wave is cued up on my Audible already. I’m anticipating a long, glorious summer dueling audio and physical books. Hope you guys have a good one!
