  1. I’m a big YA fan and I love John Green and Jenny Han! I’ve tried reading Sarah Dessen in Swedish but didn’t like really like her, maybe I should try reading it in english 🙂 Thanks for the great list Abby!

    • Hahah, thanks, Thea! I’m obsessed with YA, and John Green and Jenny Han are two of my fave authors. I’m so impressed that you can read two languages – I wish I could! And I actually listened to Along For the Ride by Sarah Dessen on audio book because I found it too slow to actually read – but it ended up being so good that I read The Truth About Forever (not audio book haha). Definitely give her a try. 😀 And Kiera Cass is worth checking out as well! (sorry… I’m a book nerd. And will shut up now.)

  2. Oh you’re inspiring me to pick up a classic or two. Now that there’s no accompanying essay, perhaps I will have a greater appreciation for them ;).

    • Thanks for the comment, Laura! I love classics – the writing in them is always so inspiring & lovely. xx

  3. Fangirl and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before have been on my TBR for so long! I haven’t read or watched Gone Girl yet, so that’s on my list too. Currently I’m reading some Sherlock Holmes 🙂 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    • Ooh, I love Sherlock Holmes! And Fangirl and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before are so good, as is Gone Girl. You should definitely read them this summer! <3

  4. Must read these books, So interesting!
