Aside from spending time with my boyfriend and exploring, the thing I’m looking forward to most on holiday is having time to sit and read without distraction! I’ve had a few ARC copies sent to me that I want to sit and get through as well as one or two newer releases that I want to pick up! So let’s take a look through my shortlist.
The Summer of Impossible Things – Rowan Coleman
In the blurb there is talk of time-travel, family bonds and some form of secrecy, it sounds like a great next read and I’ve heard great things about Rowan Coleman.
A Knight of The Seven Kingdoms – George R.R. Martin
I’m going to admit that I haven’t gotten through all of the Game of Thrones books because, well you could hold a door with them (get it…yes my jokes are terrible) but I’m up to date with the TV show so know enough. I took a look through this, not only is it shorter but it’s also illustrated! I can’t wait to go and pick this up before I go away.
See You in the Cosmos
This is a young teen book but seems interesting. Music, space and family are all included in this book. I’m not sure what initially made me want to read it but I think it’s going to be a heartwarming novel.
Dreadnought – April Daniels
I am so stupidly excited to read this book. This is another YA novel but this time focusing on Superheroes, Gender and saving humanity. Sign me up.
One of Us is Lying – Karen M. McManus
This seems like a The Breakfast Club meets murder mystery. The Breakfast Club is one of my favourite films so the whole idea of these teenagers who are so different coming together could go really well. I’m hoping it goes really well.
The Best of Adam Sharp – Graeme Simison
I LOVED The Rosie Project when I read it a few years ago and I’m so excited that there is a new direction that Simison is going in and I’m excited to read his style of writing again.
The Power – Naomi Alderman
We were going to read this for my new book club, but on a vote, we decided on another book. This really seems intriguing with female power and a fear of it being the central point, I’m really hoping to pick this up at the airport.
What are you looking to read this summer? Let me know in the comments below!

I’ve got a copy of “The Power” waiting for me and I’m really excited to read it! I’m willing to try anything recommended by Margaret Atwood!
