Top 10 Summer Reads

Hello there, C.C. here. I've been reading a lot this Summer. Have you? If you haven't or if you need some recomendations, you've come to the right place! Here are my top ten books as of right now:

10: Swoon at Your own Risk by Sydney Salter

This is Sydney Salter's third novel, and it's really great!It's kind of your typical teen fiction novel, which is why it isn't higher on the list, but overall, S.A.Y.O.R. is a really good book!

9: Chasing Perfection by Leah Alvord

Chasing Perfection is a self-published novel by Leah Alvord with a really unique and itneresting plotline. In the story,  Miranda Kirkpatrick is sent to a facility for perfect people, but everyting is not as it seems. As far as I know, it's only available through Amazon, which is sad.

8: The Statistical Probability of Falling in Love At First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

This is hit-you-over-the-head-with-a-love-story kind of novel, but it's not that sappy. It's not sappy at all actually. It's about two people who meet on a plane to London. That's all I'm going to tell you, because if I said anymore I'd be giving away the ending.

7: Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

Incarnate is a very, very long book, but it's well worth the read. In a land where everyone has reincarnated with memories of their previous lives intact for thousands of years, Ana is a newsoul, meaning that she is in her first lifetime. This story is very entertaining and unique.

6: Wither by Lauren DeStefano

When I first picked it up, I thought, "Ugh, not another dystopian future novel!", but it was actually very enjoyable. The plot focuses on Rhine, a girl who was kidnapped to become a polygamous bride. This happend frequently in the time the story is set in because a genetic malfunction has caused all males to die at 25 and all females to die at 20. It's a very interesting book that I recommend strongly.

5:Reality Check by Jen Calonita

A bit of a typical teen read, but it has a unique plot: Charlie and her friends are asked to do a reality show. The book is very enlightening as to how reality shows really work behind the scenes and how someone's life can change if they become famous. Very enjoyable!

4: Slide by Jill Hathaway

Everyone thinks Vee is a narcoleptic, but in reality, when she passes out she "slides" into someone else's body. It's very benign until she slides into the body of a killer. This book has what I think every book should: a good mystery. And there's barely any love story, which I also happen to like.

3:Social Suicide by Gemma Halliday

This is the sequel to Deadly Cool (number two on the list) and is a really great follow-up! I don't want to include a description because it's a bit of a spoiler alert. Definately read this one, but only after you've read Deadly Cool.

2: Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday

The prequel to Social Suicide. In the story, Hartley's ex-boyfriend is accused of murder. Why? The girl he was cheating on Hartley with turns up dead in his closet. Eek! This story has a good mystery and little romance.

1: Glimmer by Phoebe Kitanidis

Glimmer. Glimmer, Glimmer, Glimmer. It's my favorite book! A deep mystery grips the town of Summer Falls, and it's up to Elyse and Marshall to figure it out. Yeah, I know that's a bad description, but I want you to read it so I'm not in danger of giving away anything. Good mystery. A must read!

That's all for now! Until next time...
