Summer will be officially here (in the UK) at the end of the week and today I want to share some Super Summer Reads with you.
If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere and approaching Winter I think these reads would be equally great to take your mind off the nights drawing in and a chill in the air!
Super Summer Reads
I’m a big fan of romance novels and, for me, they are a great choice for summer holiday reads. Here are a couple I’ve really enjoyed lately…
The Lemon Sisters by Jill Shalvis*
I’m a long-time fan of Jill Shalvis and her latest book – The Lemon Sisters – is an example of all the things I love about her writing. If you haven’t read any of Jill’s books yet this is a great one to start with.
Jill writes wonderfully flawed and relatable characters. And it’s the characters of The Lemon Sisters that drew me right in. I really felt like I got to know the cast of this novel and I loved reading the dynamics between the sisters Brooke and Mindy. Garrett and Linc feature as the romantic interests of the sisters along with their ever-increasing Slip n Slide. The kids and the animals add humour and a good dose of real family life.
If you love books that warmly invite you into family and romantic dynamics and whisk you along for the ride you will love this book!
This is the third book in The Wildstone Series. The series can be read in any order.

One Summer in Paris by Sarah Morgan
One Summer in Paris was released in April and is still available. I love Sarah Morgan’s writing style and I was absorbed into the story straight away. This book was about unexpected friendships and I loved watching the relationship between Audrey and Grace develop.
Both of the main characters in this book had some demons to face and I enjoyed the support they gave each other while they did so. The secondary characters were fun as well – especially Mimi.
I’ve never visited to Paris. This book had me checking the Eurostar website to see how much it would be to visit! I’ve not booked yet but it’s definitely higher up on my “must visit” list now. I love books where the location features in the book like a character and Paris shone brightly in this summer story.
If you’re looking for a summer read featuring friendship and the backdrop of a beautiful city – I’d recommend trying One Summer in Paris.
What do you enjoy reading at this time of year? Do you have any recommendations for me?
You can see all of my Reading Rituals posts here. If romance isn’t your thing (however much that hurts my heart!) there’s plenty of other recommendations for you.
