What about you? What will be in your beach bag this summer? Let me know in the comments! 


  1. Prince of Shadows is fun, and V is for Villain looks really good. I hope you enjoy your books. :)

  2. Scarlet (and anything by Marissa Meyer) is in my six-feet-tall TBR pile. I haven't heard of V for Villain before (had to google), but I agree with Elen above that it looks interesting. Enjoy your books :)

  3. AHHH The Lunar Chronicles is one of my favorite series ever! You MUST read Scarlet and then Cress! *flails* And Amy & Roger's Epic Detour is such a cute contemporary :D Great list!

  4. I absolutely loved Scarlet and The Rosie Project. I hope that you like them too. :-)

  5. Great list! I loved Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell and The Rosie Project, I hope you enjoy both books too :) I have The Luminaries sitting on my eReader waiting to be read but I don't think I'll be getting around to it anytime soon...

  6. Awesome list. The Rosie Project is an excellent read it is so unexpected. I expected to enjoy it, but I really loved it. I've not read the others though, I few I've been meaning to check out, just not got around to it yet

  7. Great list. I've been wanting to read The Rosie Project and Amy & Roger's Epic Detour for awhile. Both look so good!

  8. Great picks! I've heard such great things about Amy & Roger's Epic Detour. I'm hoping to read it this summer. :)

  9. The Rosie Project is wonderful! It's a perfect summer read. Same goes for Amy & Roger. I really need to get into the Lunar Chronicles series. I've had Cinder sitting on my shelf for far too long!

  10. I haven't read any of these yet, but now I am going to have to! I also have to read Cinder first before I can get to Scarlet. Great list, I hope you enjoy them!

  11. Nice choices! I put off reading the Luminaries so far, because this book is so big that you could probably strike someone dead with it. The Gods of Gotham sounds really intriguing, not least because it has Gotham in its title, haha.
