  1. Big Little Lies is a great summer read. Your list also reminds me that I still need to read We Were Liara. I think that was on my summer TBR last year and I didn't get to it.

  6. I love seeing A List of Cages get a mention. I don’t know why that doesn’t get more attention. That book truly broke my heart and I just wanted to hug Julian and make it all okay.

  7. The only one here I've read is Nimona and I grabbed it when it first came out. I loved it and hope you do too. I need to catch up on Sabrina and am anxious for the Netflix series. Although I'll admit Riverdale fell a tad short for me this year. I hope you get some pool time AND get to read all of these.

  8. We Were Liars is a great pool read.

  9. Nimona is a really enjoyable read! I find it interesting that people have themes they read by, like, by season, I admire the planning of it. (I'm a disorganised mess about my TBR...)

    1. Oh my TBR is currently a total mess as well... I have a Christmas book I'm planning to read soon lol!

  10. I love your list :)
    We Were Liars is perfect for this theme!

  15. A lot of these books are on my TBR and I need to read them. Thanks for sharing this awesome list.

    ReplyDelete
  16. WE WERE LIARS was sure surprising, as was NIMONA. I really was thrilled with them both. THE READERS OF BROKEN WHEEL RECOMMEND really disappointed me. I think that books about books should have more to do with books! HA!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I was disappointed in Broken Wheel a bit too because of that reason!

      Delete
    2. Ha!! I totally understand that! ;)

  17. I love these. I like that you broke it down to genre too.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I haven't read any of these, but I'm adding a lot of them to my list! I love that you separated them by genre so I have a better idea which ones would work for me. <3

  20. Nimona is such a good choice for reading by the pool - it's such a fun read. And I know I definitely read We Were Liars on the beach, so that is definitely a good pick!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Awesome list! I loved The Red Notebook and also The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend...such great books. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh my gosh, Big Little Lies is ALL THE DRAMA! I love how you broke your list down to appeal to different tastes.

  23. Great list! I like how you gave a little blurb for each one. A House at the Bottom of the Lake is one I added to my TBR recently after watching an old video of BooksAndLala's, where she talked about it, and it just sounds soooo cool. It's on my wishlist for after my book ban ends!

  25. I love Nimona. It's one of the first graphic novels I picked up and still remains a favorite. Isn't there supposed to be a movie? A List of Cages has been on my TBR for a while. I've heard lots of good things where that one is concerned.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah! I heard rumors about that. Hopefully it didn't get dropped! I very highly recommend A List of Cages! It's sooooo good!

      Delete
  26. Great list! I want to read Big Little Lies at some point! Hopefully I'll find the opportunity soon!

  29. I love this tag! Such a great list just in time for summer to start this week :)

  30. These are some great choices, Erica! I have a few on my TBR pile already that I still need to get to. Sunbolt is among them. I have heard such great things about it. The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend was a fun read, wasn't it? I enjoyed it quite a bit.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thank you! :) Yay!! I hope you love Sunbolt, it's such a refreshing YA fantasy!

  31. Great list! I've watched the mini-series for Big little lies but I want to read the book. And it does seem like a great book for summer.

  32. We Were Liars!! I remember reading that one year in the summer. The twist! I loved it, and would probably reread it in the future just to see if I pick up anything that I missed first time around.

  35. Love how you separated these books into different categories! I watched the tv series of Big Little Lies a few months ago and having been meaning to read the book ever since... hopefully soon!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Awww Nimona!! I need to re-read Nimona soon, I loved it so much! I also would love to read Josh Malerman's book! He's got a new one too I think! I need to get on that. :)
