The summer is almost here which gives the girls more time to read our favorite chick lits! With so many different stories to choose from anyone can easily get lost, but here’s a list of suggestions to get you started:
What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
What Happened to Goodbye is a new book from Sarah Dessen that focuses on the life of McClean who has never been one to form close relationships with anyone. Ever since her mother caused chaos in the family, McClean has been living with her father and they’ve been moving about ever since. At her new home, McClean is starting to open up and actually reveal her true identity.
This one sounds especially interesting and if Sarah Dessen wrote it, it’s already quite promising.
Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
Something Borrowed focuses on Rachel, a prim and proper attorney who has always lived in the shadow of her best friend Darcy. Rachel seems to never get what she wants until she has a one night stand with Darcy’s fiancé, Dex. The pair continues to have their traitorous relationship until Rachel finally demands that Dex makes a choice between them.
I was actually excited to see the film for this book but now I might decide to read it first. Honestly I’m not a big fan of Rachel from the summary but I’ll still give this book a shot.
Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern
Where Rainbows End tells the story of best friends, Rosie and Alex, who are torn apart when Alex is forced to move from Ireland to America. The night that Rosie is about to leave to visit Alex in Boston, a sudden occurrence halts her from doing so. This occurrence changed her future forever and lead the pair through their ups and downs as they learn from their maturation.
I think that this one definitely seems like something I could easily succumb to.
Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella
Twenties Girl is about a 27 year-old girl, Lara. The ghost of her late great-aunt, Sadie, asks her to retrieve a necklace of hers. Too bad Lara has more problems in her hands than just that. As she fills the requests of Sadie, unveils the secrets of her family and faces many bumps along the way.
I’m sure that this is book will not only be filled with mystery but also romance and humor, because it was written by Kinsella. I’d be interested in this book.
The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
The Last Song is a story about Ronnie Miller who resents both of her divorced parents. She constantly rebelled until her mother sent Ronnie and brother to spend their summer in North Carolina with their father. Ronnie later meets a boy, Will, whom she falls in love with. From Ronnie’s summer, she and the reader both learn about family and love.
I’ve actually already read this book and I adored every bit of it, and the movie is brilliant also! As a reader I definitely recommend this one.
The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
The Summer I Turned Pretty is the book that began Jenny Han’s trilogy, the Summer Novels. The books follow main character, Belly, as she anticipates the summer during her winter. There are two things during the summer that make it the greatest time of the year: Jeremiah and Conrad, two boys whom she views in many different ways. Read Belly’s story of love and friendship through her summer.
I’ve heard plenty of great things about this trilogy so I’ll definitely look into reading it.
L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad
L.A. Candy was Lauren Conrad’s debut novel and inspired by her own personal life and experiences. The main character, Jane Roberts, receives a job in Los Angeles and lands a spot in a reality TV show along the way, like Conrad did with The Hills. Along the way, Roberts faces bumps on the road as she experiences problems with love and friendship.
I’m a big fan of Lauren Conrad and I’ve been meaning to begin this book.
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
This book is about a girl named Hannah Baker who committed suicide and left message cassette tapes that hint the reasons leading up to her suicide. One of the 13 people that receives a tape is Clay Jenson, a classmate of Baker’s. Jenson follows the message from the tapes and slowly discovers Hannah’s intentions.
I’ve been recommended this multiple times and it sounds incredibly good so it’s definitely on my to-read list.
Water for Elephants by Sarah Guen
Water for Elephants is a love story that takes place in the circus during the Great Depression. It’s about the menagerie of the circus, Jacob Jankowski, who has a complicated story. He’s surrounded by strange folks and is often brutally bullied by the animal trainer, August. To make his life even more difficult, Jacob falls in love with August’s wife Marlena.
This book definitely perks my interest because it’s not often that I find a book with this setting and situation.
Perfect You by Elizabeth Scott
Perfect You is practically your typical high school love story. There’s Kate Brown who feels like her world is just crumbling down. She’s gained family issues and lost her best friend. Then there’s that hot guy, Will in this case, that gets all the females. Too bad Kate is too stubborn to let him get close to her despite his attempts. In the end, will she ever?
This is something I’d read in my free time because it just sounds too cute.
Well there’s 10 chick lits to keep you occupied this summer! Hopefully at least a couple are new to you. Happy reading!
