Great Summer Reads

I know. I know. I haven’t exactly been up-to-date with my YA novel reviews. Anyway, here’s some recommended reads for the summer that I’ve enjoyed. All of them (except for Envy and Handcuffs) are either paranormal or urban fantasy. All have elements of romance.


City of Class by Cassandra Clare (third book in the Mortal Instrument series)

Envy by Anna Godbersen (third book in the Luxe series)

Evermore by Alyson Noel

Fade by Lisa McMann (sequel to Wake)

Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr (sequel to Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange)

Handcuffs by Bethany Griffin

Kiss of Life by Dan Waters (sequel to Generation Dead)

The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong (sequel to The Summoning)

The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray (third book in the Gemma Doyle Trilogy)

Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead (third book in the Vampire Academy series)

Swoon by Nina Malkin

Twilight books by Stephenie Meyer
