5 Books You Must Read Before School Starts

Monday, July 28

 Summer is a great time unwind, relax and... Read a good book! Lacey and I are excited to share with you guys some books we have on our summer reading list because one thing we are obsessed with is reading. Plus this selection will be a little different since we have different taste when it comes to books. She's really into Dystopian books while I learn towards the mushy gushy Young Adult novels and non-fiction ones.

Oh and did you notice my dark photos? Hehe, let's all do a slow clap for the bad quality because I took them in horrid lighting  *sighs* -.-"

  Lacey's Summer Books  

City of Bones by: Cassandra Clare

I planning to read this book series sometimes this summer the reason why is 'cause I heard so many good review of it! I read first chapter before I bought and made me wanting more. When ever books does that to me it worth buying!

Plot Summary
When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

Bloodlines by: Richelle Mead

This book is also a series and it a spin off from the Vampire Academy series. I can't wait to read! The reason why I haven't read it yet 'cause all the books aren't out yet, but I'm going to break my rule and read anyways!

Plot Summary
 Sydney is an alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of human and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives. When Sydney is torn from her bed in the middle of the night, at first she thinks she's still being punished for her complicated alliance with dhampir Rose Hathaway. But what unfolds is far worse. Jill Dragomir - the sister of Moroi Queen Lissa Dragomir - is in mortal danger, and the Moroi must send her into hiding. 

The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

  Sierra's Summer Books  

The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business  by Charles Duhigg

I sort of cheated with this book suggestion, the Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, because I'm currently listening to it on a audio book (I find it easier to do this with nonfiction books.) Hehe, but I guess it still counts since someone is reading it, right? Right.

I'm love this book so far so naturally I wanted to share it with you guys. At first I assumed it would be dull, boring, business book; but so far it's witty, thought provoking, and it changed my point of view on life :)
Plot Summary
At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

The Giver (The Giver #1)

The Giver (The Giver Quartet #1) by Lois Lowry

Have you ever wanted to read a book just because the movie adaption is coming out for it? That's what happened to me with Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars, and now this book; The Giver. This series has 4 book in it which I added it to my reading list years ago but fast forward a few years and I still haven't read it.

It looks like a good book but like I said before, hehe, I only became re-interested in it because of the movie trailer. Ah, the simple minded.

Plot Summary
Jonas' world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community. When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

  The Book We're Both Going to Read  
Rebel Belle by: Rachel Hawkins

This is a book we totally judged by it's cover, and I know I know, you're never suppose to pick a book just because of that. But come on, its gorgeous and lookd so interesting! And based on the plot it looks like a good read.

Plot Summary
Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper's destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts.

Are you a eBook, hardcover, or paperback type of reader? During the summer time I love reading on my tablet because I don't have to lug around a bunch of books while Lacey tends to drift towards hardcovers because they book amazing on her huge bookshelves and last a long time!

Hope you enjoyed our picks, but now its your turn, what's one book you can't wait to read this summer? We can't wait to read your comments!


  1. These look like some great suggestions! I will definitely be putting them on my reading list.

  2. Ah, it was such a long time ago, but I remember it being really interesting.

  3. I love reading too!
    Some books look really great! Especially City of Bones and Rebel Bel (>w<)
    I don't like ebooks... I love to touch the paper of the book, turn the page, the odor of the paper, ... For me reading a book is not just reading, it's more of that, and I don't have this joy with e-book...

  4. I have a Kindle now, but I love reading any type of book. Although ebooks have been easier, I don't mind having a book in my hand.
    I would definitely try these books out. The only one I read from your list is The Giver and that was such a long time ago!


  5. I prefer reading ebooks, and I will definitely be reading some of these


  6. i am more of a ebook reader because i have a kindle but i just might read the giver.
