Recommendations, Good Reads, Honest Reviews & One Click Away from Ordering Your New Favorite Book.

I have always struggled with reading in the sense that I can't stay focused on the book I am reading. I have recently gotten back into reading and have been finding books that truly interest me. With this, I want to share my recommendations, what I am looking to read next, and what I have purchased to keep me interested in reading. (Brought to you by Amazon Storefront | Click HERE to order any of these books)

1. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han ★★★★☆ - 4/5

Everyone has heard of this book or tv show because of how popular it is right now. It is one of the highest trending tv shows and books at the moment. The book is truly a work of art, it is beautifully written and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I did make the mistake of watching the tv show first before reading the book but I still really enjoyed the book. (I even thought the book was better, there are somethings that happen in the book that don't get shown in the tv show and visa versa.) I can not wait to read the rest of this series and continue to follow the tv show but this time I will read the books before I watch the new seasons so I have some surprise to the book; instead of knowing just about everything that happens. Book Order:

- The Summer I Turned Pretty

- It's Not Summer Without You

- We'll Always Have Summer

2. Heart Bones by Colleen Hoover

Heart Bones was recommended to me because of how much I enjoyed The Summer I Turned Pretty.

I have just started it and so far I really enjoy it.

The back of the book reads, "Beyah comes from a life of poverty and neglect; Samson from a family of wealth. When the two find themselves spending the summer as neighbors, they soon realize money is one of the few things they don't have in common. Their bond is too intense to ignore, but with only the summer separating them from the start of their new lives on opposite ends of the country, Beyah and Samson decide to stay in the shallow end of a summer fling. What they don't realize is that a rip current is coming and it's about to drag both their hearts out to sea."

The book is said that if you enjoy the tv shows "The Summer I Turned Pretty" and "Outer Banks" then you will enjoy Heart Bones.
