My real life and blogger friend Megan inspired me to make these lists, you can check out her blog at Arroway

Also, I was going to make comments for each book I recommended, but then I thought it's better to read books and form your own opinions, without others' opinions. 

Hope your summer is lovely, and enjoy your summer reading.
