[Goodbye] Summer Recap!

It's here, everyone! 

It is officially the first day of autumn!!!  

And, if you can't tell by my exclamation point overkill, I am very excited. 

I've said it once but I'll say it again:  I have been waiting for what seems like forever for cooler weather, sweaters, and pumpkin-flavored everything. 

To commemorate the end of the summer season, I thought that I would share with you a list of all of the books I have read during the months of June, July, and August.  Along with each book title I will provide you with my rating and link to the review if applicable (because I got lazy over the summer and didn't review all of the books I read).

Before I jump into the list, I want to inform you all that I am hosting MY FIRST EVER GIVEAWAY, which is super exciting.  I am giving away $20 worth of books from Book Depository, so you all should definitely check it out and spread the word!

And now, let's get down to business.  (These books are not listed in the order they were read.  Books that have been reviewed will have grey links.)

1) The Giver by Lois Lowry ★★★★☆

2) If I Stay by Gayle Forman ★★★★★

3) Hopeless by Colleen Hoover ★★★★★

4) City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare ★★★★☆

5) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell ★★★★★

6) The Scorch Trials by James Dashner ★★★

7) Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare★★★★★ 

8) Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi ★★★★

9) Paper Towns by John Green ★★★★★

10) City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare ★★★★★

11) Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare ★★★★★

12) Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover ★★★★☆

13) Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare ★★★★

14) The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin ★★★★☆

15) Delirium by Lauren Oliver ★★★★☆

16) Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver ★★★

17) The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater ★★★

18) Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi ★★★★

19) Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi ★★★★

20) Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi ★★★★☆

21) Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi ★★★★

22) Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover ★★★★☆

23) Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell ★★★★★

So, there you have it.  

I'm really pleased with this list!  I averaged about 7 books a month, which is a lot for me.  I'm sure that I will have a much shorter list for the fall considering that I am back at school and have very little time allotted for leisurely reading.

Now It's Your Turn

1)  What books did you read this summer?  Did you read any of the books on this list?
2)  Which summer read was your favorites/which would you recommend for me to read?

I look forward to hearing from you all!
Have a lovely start to your week.

  1. Can I just say that I too share your love for fall? I feel like I am tweeting about the leaves changing colors and sweaters all the time but it's just the best time of year! And wow. You have an awesome summer reading list. There are a lot of books on your list that I've been meaning to check out, especially the Rainbow Rowell books. You did good! Now go get a PSL ;)
