Bookish Spotlight is a new feature for 2014. I wanted a feature that would showcase — in my opinion — the best books, or, the books that I absolutely love and can’t stop sharing with other people. These can be books, entire series — anything goes! My goal is that my readers might find a great new read after reading this feature.
Title: The Summer series
Author: Jenny Han
Released: 2009, 2010, 2011
Belly has always lived for the summertime because it means all her favorite things: swimming, the beach and the Fisher boys, Conrad and Jeremiah. She has spent every summer with them at Cousins Beach for as long as she can remember. She has always been in love with Conrad and finally, one summer, it seems like he might have feelings for her too. But it turns out, so does Jeremiah.
As the summers go on, Belly has to choose between two brothers who love her as she comes to the realization that she will have to break one of their hearts.
Why it’s a favourite: I won this series a long while back and knew that I would like it, but never really got into reading it until last year. Not surprisingly, I devoured the series in a few days — loving it the entire time! Honestly, I don’t know why I put it off for so long because it had me laughing, crying, and swooning over two boys, wondering how Belly could ever choose between them (even though I had my choice picked quite early on!). I love a series that’s full of romance, one that takes me back to my days in my youth (even though I never had to deal with love triangles or anything!). It’s a series that’s light where it needs to be, heavy in other places, and just perfect for a summer or winter read.
