  1. that is one difficult question to answer since there are a lot of books i would categorize as the best summer read.....

    Since it changes a lot so at moment my ultimate summer read is MELISSA DARNELL's CONSUME.

  2. I have SO many!!! But the one I'm looking forward to is 'Terminated' by Rachel Caine.

    It is the third and final book in the revivalist series. About a girl, Bryn who is innocently murdered but is living off a drug named as 'Returne' that keeps her alive and stops her body from decomposing, though she has to take every 24 hour shots which is a major problem!

    I've been keeping up and have been waiting to get ahold of the final book to see how Bryn ends up! :)

  4. At the moment it is Hover by Melissa West.
    It's the second book in The Taking series and the sequel to Gravity.
    Gravity is one of my favorite books and it ended with a huge cliffhanger, so I just need my Jackson and Ari fix!

  5. My ultimate summer read is Nobody's Girl by Sarra Manning. It's set in Paris and just makes me want to live within the pages of the book! Soooo good <3 #SummerReading

  6. I have read so many books this summer and I couldn't pick my ULTIMATE. So I'll just enumerate those really made me swooned!

    Bad Things, Bully, Thief and Dare You To.

  7. Hmm, I think I'd choose Pushing The Limits! It has an amazing storyline. Also, On The Island is just superb. Definitely two books to get lost in.

    ReplyDelete
  8. The ULTIMATE summer read for me is always one of the Harry Potter books. Every summer I pick a random one and re-read it. I love being re-immersed in the world. And what better time to read about a magic school than when you're on a break from school/college/uni and you don't have to feel bitter about the fact that your Hogwarts letter obviously got lost in the post?

  9. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han - still a great summer read even after all this time!

  10. I thought this was such a good idea I did a blog post on it!

  11. My Ultimate Summer read is...This is really hard!!
    Ink by Amanda Sun in the YA genre is my ultimate summer read.
    But in the more ADULT genre, My ultimate summer read would be Kiss an angel by Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

    Here's hoping XD

  12. I've finally gotten around to reading To Kill a Mocking Bird, and the weather we're having is very conducive to reading for the deep South.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  15. A very hard question, during the summer I always love to reread the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Jenny Han's Summer series is perfect for summer!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm sticking by Harry Potter. There is nothing better than an annual re-read of one of the most loved series ever :). It's impossible to get tired of our favourite boy wizard!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hover by Melissa West. Love it! :)
    Also, I re-read Dare You To and the Healer books by Maria Snyder.

    Thank you!

  20. My ultimate Summer Read is The Iron Fey series. It makes my summer totally adventurous and enjoyable. It's really a joy re-reading it! And who doesn't want some Ash and Puck during summertime? Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I always tend to go for books about sirens when its summer, I finished the Sirens trilogy by Tricia Rayburn and am currently reading a book about sirens on my kindle called Surface. Also beachy thrillers like Cruel Summer by James Dawson, just finished that and it was amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  22. There are SO many! I just depends on what mood I'm in. I love a great YA paranormal series like Cassandra Clare's or Julie Kagawa's, (and you can never go wrong with Harry Potter.;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I recently read About a Girl by Lindsey Kelk - makes me wish I was on holiday in Hawaii too!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I always start the summer with a stack of books that I have been wanting to read. Now that the time is available to read, I just devour those books. But the ultimate summer read is that one that gets put on the shelf to be read later. How do I know it is the book to be saved? Reading it makes the entire world around me go away. The stress of the day, the noises outside disappear and you do feel transported into the world of the characters. You just know.

  25. My ultimate summer read is Poison Study (and the rest of the chronicles of Ixia) by Maria V. Snyder. There's nothing like poison and love and Valek to read away the days.

    ReplyDelete
  26. It has to be a re-read of City of Bones by Cassandra Clare just in time for the movie, Eeeeek I'm so excited. I love Jace and the plot is superb.

    ReplyDelete
  27. My ultimate summer read was The Lost World by Micheal Crichton. The reason is I was reading this book on a beach when my teenage son (who wouldn't read for pleasure) asked if he could read it too. we spent the week reading a page each out loud. Since then my son has become an avid reader. I will never forget the book that 'turned him on to reading' or the summer that it happened.

  28. In the Summer mu ultimate reads are usually books I've built up during term time without having the time to get into reading. This summer my high's have been The Perks of Being a Wallflower, 13 Reasons Why and Will Grayson, Will Grayson. You also can't go wrong if you choose old favourites The Tower & Hive series by Anne McCaffery being mine.

    ReplyDelete
  29. My ultimate summer read is The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. My ultimate Summer Read is Sundowners by Lesley Lokko. It's just epic and really gets to you - I have read it countless times in the past five years, usually during the summer.

    And it's so long it takes all summer to read! It's perfect for reading whatever the weather - and in the UK that's a good thing as August or not I'm currently curled up in my onesie and a quilt reading.

    But as to what I'm reading now, I read far too much so it could be any of a number of books which take my fancy over this last month of summer.

    ReplyDelete

  49. My ultimate summer read....well, it is really hard to chose, but I think it would be "Looking for Alaska". It just gives me that feeling...I don't know, that I could counquer the world sometime and that, even if we don't know what we have to do with our lives, we must live every moment. Because, in the end, everything we do matters.

    ReplyDelete
  55. For some reason I always find myself reading Harry Potter during the summer. Maybe it's because the books always start during summer vacation. I have no idea, but I can't resist! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  56. My ultimate book would be one that makes you laugh, cry, and fall in love with the characters. Its got to be good enough that i can sink into and one that, when i close the book, still stays with me.
