The Summer I turned pretty, It’s not Summer without you and we’ll always have summer by Jenny Han: 

Synopsis: Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer–they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one terrible and wonderful summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

My Rating 4/5 stars: Full review Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

Ben Jewell has hit breaking point. His ten-year-old son Jonah has severe autism and Ben and his wife, Emma, are struggling to cope.
When Ben and Emma fake a separation – a strategic decision to further Jonah’s case in an upcoming tribunal – Ben and Jonah move in with Georg, Ben’s elderly father. In a small house in North London, three generations of men – one who can’t talk; two who won’t – are thrown together.

My Rating 4/5 stars– Full review: Shtum by Jem Lester

Enders Game by Orsan Scott Card: 17702285

Synopsis: Andrew “Ender” Wiggin thinks he is playing computer simulated war games; he is, in fact, engaged in something far more desperate. The result of genetic experimentation, Ender may be the military genius Earth desperately needs in a war against an alien enemy seeking to destroy all human life. The only way to find out is to throw Ender into ever harsher training, to chip away and find the diamond inside, or destroy him utterly. Ender Wiggin is six years old when it begins. He will grow up fast.

Scrubs Daydream 1


 

Let me know what you thought of any of these books! Are any of these your favorites?

Also do you prefer Hardcovers of Paperbacks?

I purchased a few Hardcovers of my favorites as I love the way they look but I prefer paperbacks, they are cheaper and easier to lug around.

    1. Her writing is just so enjoyable and perfect when your looking for something light and fun to read but her duology is MUCH better then her trilogy.

      I recommend starting with To all the boys I’ve loved before series rather then The Summer series. 🙂

    1. I’ve been putting off The Song of Ice and Fire series for way to long! I am finally going to take the plunge and read this one as well as watch the TV series 🙂

      The Lunar Chronicles is amazing! I hope your enjoying Winter it is so beautifully written and one of the best final books I’ve ever read.

  1. Now.. that’s how you celebrate a birthday! Happy belated birthday! Hope you’re enjoying your bookhaul; there’s some really amazing books in there. I really want to read ADSOM soon, it’s been on my TBR for wayyyy too long.

    I don’t really have any preferences regarding the format. I’d probably go with the prettiest format of the book or what’s available! 😀 But I totally agree, paperbacks are a lot easier to carry around the world.

    1. Thank you! I have heard so much about V.E. Schwabs writing that I couldn’t resist finally reading ADSOM, hopefully she lives up to her title as the queen of Fantasy 🙂
      I fall asleep reading a lot and having a paperback fall on your face feels a lot better then a Hardcover haha

  2. You liked Ugly Love? Heading over to read your review now. It has so many negative ones that I was a bit hesitant about getting it. I enjoyed Me Before you and hope that you will like it too. Happy reading, I hope you enjoy all your books this month 🙂

    1. I liked it, I didn’t Love it as much as November 9 and I can completely see why people wouldn’t like it, the Female MC Tate is a bit of a pushover and can be annoying but I really enjoyed the story 🙂

    1. YES YES YES to Throne of Glass! It’s an absolute Favorite of mine I hope you enjoy it as much as I did(do) haha

      The Lunar Chronicles is fantastic. I had never read a re-telling before this series and was unsure so I put it off for a while, but it is done so beautifully that I had no complaints (except that I waited so long to start it!)
