Some books are really hard to read, and require a lot of focus like high fantasy, but then there are other books that are fun, fast paced and just super easy to get into. While high fantasy is amazing, sometimes you just want to let your mind have a break, so here are some easy book recommendations!
Obsidian by Jennifer L Armentrout – This is the first book in the Lux series which is a very fun and entertaining book series. Obsidian follows a girl named Katy who’s mother has decided to try and move on after the death of Katy’s father, and moved them to West Virginia where they end up moving in next to 2 strange twins, Dee and Daemon Black. After meeting them, her world is flipped upside down as she learns the truth about who they really are. I love this series, and am currently re reading it just because it so fun and easy to read.
The Selection by Kiera Cass – While this book and its whole series has some mixed reviews, I adore it. It is light hearted and fast paced and the plot is just a really fun idea. In The Selection, we follow America Singer, a young woman who is picked to compete for the Prince of Illea’s heart but she finds it hard when her heart is elsewhere. Throughout the novel she gets to know the Prince and the other women competing and things get complicated…I really recommend this if you want to read a series where you fly through all the books in no time!
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell – When I read this book I could just not put it down until I finished the entire thing. Rainbow Rowell has a way of making her books complicated, yet extremely easy to read. Eleanor and Park follows 2 characters, Eleanor who is a big, oddball red head and Park, a music loving, moody person. When Eleanor starts going to Park’s school she catches his attention, but not in the way you think. They begin talking and really getting to know each other and soon their strange friendship blossoms into something more. This book is so heart wrenching and heart warming and you all need to read it now!
The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han – This is a summer romance book so obviously it is going to be a fun read but for some reason, this book sticks out above a lot of contemporary I have read! In The Summer I Turned Pretty, our main character Belly is going to the summer house she has been going to since she was a young along with her mom’s best friend and her 2 sons. But now Belly is older and the 2 boys, Jeremiah and Conrad had seem to notice too. There is lots of romance, friendship and tears throughout this novel and it is great.
Those are a few easy reads recommendations and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: My 2017 Writing Routine!
