Hey there, book cult!
Summer is here and with it comes the summer book lists! There are so many books to read and summer just isn’t long enough to get through them all. With a combination of books I have read and ones that are so promising, I’m excited to share this one.
So, starting off the summer book lists, I’ve got the YA list. My favorite. I love many genres and am always open to trying out each of them, but this is where my heart is. From friendship to fantasy to romance to zombies. There’s a bit of everything. Take a scroll and you might just find something for your summer TBR.
