Book’d: Rec of the Week #5 | Summer Reads

Hey guys!

Here’s my first set of summer reads! I’ll try to include different genres in my picks throughout summer. I hope you enjoy these picks and share any of your favourite summer books!



Boys in love with writing… and each other!:

Autoboyography by Christina Lauren


My rating: 5 stars

Genre(s): Contemporary; Romance

Synopsis: Three years ago, Tanner Scott’s family relocated from California to Utah, a move that nudged the bisexual teen temporarily back into the closet. Now, with one semester of high school to go, and no obstacles between him and out-of-state college freedom, Tanner plans to coast through his remaining classes and clear out of Utah.

But when his best friend Autumn dares him to take Provo High’s prestigious Seminar—where honor roll students diligently toil to draft a book in a semester—Tanner can’t resist going against his better judgment and having a go, if only to prove to Autumn how silly the whole thing is. Writing a book in four months sounds simple. Four months is an eternity. (More)


Contemporary Romance is always a go-to for Summer! This was such a touching love story with many obstacles and self-discovery and as a person that loves writing it was nice to see the story revolve around writing and expressing one’s self through written words. Of course, it was an audiobook and it made it even better! [Review]


A festival for all those who feel they don’t belong:

Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody


My Rating: 4 stars

Genre(s): Fantasy; Mystery

Synopsis: Sixteen-year-old Sorina has spent most of her life within the smoldering borders of the Gomorrah Festival. Yet even among the many unusual members of the traveling circus-city, Sorina stands apart as the only illusion-worker born in hundreds of years. This rare talent allows her to create illusions that others can see, feel and touch, with personalities all their own. Her creations are her family, and together they make up the cast of the Festival’s Freak Show.

But no matter how lifelike they may seem, her illusions are still just that—illusions, and not truly real. Or so she always believed…until one of them is murdered.

Desperate to protect her family, Sorina must track down the culprit and determine how they killed a person who doesn’t actually exist.  (More)

A travelling festival that always seems to be burning – a good fantasy to start with. It’s a quick, easy read, has a cast of loveable characters and has an interesting plot that I had never seen in fantasy. You’ll get through this pretty quickly and hopefully enjoy it too!

I hope you give these needs a try. If you have, leave your thoughts below.

Leave me a Rec Too!
