summer reading recommendation.

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Sometimes, a book just exudes that, "summer read" feel. And there are so many books that have that that I simply can't name them all. But today, I thought I should recommend one book that I think is perfect if you are looking for your next beach read. It's a contemporary Young Adult novel, and this recommendation is mainly for readers and fans of the YA genre.

Title: Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
Genre: Young Adult - contemporary
When I Read It: Summer 2010

Why I Recommend It: It's mainly about two people having a road trip together. Road trips! Road trips are fun. They're exciting, and they're perfect for summer. I personally love road trips and traveling in general - I wish I could do them both more often to be honest. But because I can't do those on a regular basis just yet, I will gladly settle with books or movies that talk about them instead. If you want to get inspired for the summer, or to have a trip somewhere soon, read this.

Note: It's not the "best book ever" and it's not necessarily a favorite book of mine, but it's a good read. Plain and simple. It's fun. It's entertaining, and after reading it, I felt like I had to call up my friends and start planning a road trip with them as well.

  2. I like reading about road trips and travelling, too, so I might have to check it out. I've just begun The Luxe by Anna Godbersen. I think this is also quite a summer read.
