Summer Reading

My summer reading is off to a slow start, but I'm ready to really dive in after finishing a major project.
I kicked the summer off with a book I was assigned to review, The Not-So-Great Depression by Amy Goldman Koss. It was a fun way to get started.

Next I treated myself to two chick lit reads. I loved Shug by Jenny Han and her book, The Summer I Turned Pretty, would be a great book to take to the beach and read. After all, it is about a girl who spends her summers at the ocean and the boys she grows to love.

Then I turned back to a Sci Fi selection. I've read a lot of sci fi and dystopia this school year, and it seems that trend is continuing into the summer. I liked the premise of The Roar by Emma Clayton. However, the book kind of left me hanging. It really got good in the last third and then kind of abruptly ended. Can you say sequel?

What have you been reading this summer? What should I pick up next?
