Top Ten Summer Freebie 2017

This week is Top Ten Summer Freebie! I decided to go with books that have a summery feel or have a summery cover. Who doesn't love summer? Weeeee!!!


Girl Out of Water

Summer in California surfing or summer in Nebraska? 

Since You've Been Gone

Looks like summer.

The Vacationers

I mean just look at this one.

Tides

Summer on an island off New Hampshire.

What I Thought Was True

I don't know too much about this one but it has a summery vibe.  

Summer Days and Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories

Need I say more?   

Panic

Not a summery cover but this one took place during the summer.   

Juniors

This looks like summer also.   

Dangerous Girls

Sand.  

Eight Hundred Grapes

I really have no idea if this is set in the summer or not, but I like the cover and the Sonoma wine country setting sure felt like summer.

  18. "Sand." - LOL!!! That's my favorite caption. Short, simple, and to the point. I love all of these for summer. I think beautiful sunsets, swimming, ice cream, and pink for summer and these fit perfectly. Although I do love ice cream in the winter too since it doesn't melt as fast. Winters in Texas aren't really terribly cold though.

    1. Ha ha thanks! I know it's kind of a murder mystery thriller but IDK the sand on the cover makes me think of summer. :)

    1. It does, doesn't it? I'm not sure The Vacationers is my kind of read but the cover always jumps out at me.

  23. Juniors looks cool. I haven't seen it before. Dangerous Girls is supposed to be really good. I've only read Since You've Been Gone which was great but another summery read as well as book be her called The Unexpected Everything and it's AMAZING.

    Replies
    1. I've heard the same about Dangerous Girls. I need to tee that one up and jump in. I think I've seen The Unexpected Everything around and it does look good! And all her books look so summery. Juniors looks summery too I thought...

      Delete
  24. Haha, I love all the short captions for each picture. Let the covers speak for themselves! I love the beachy ones, for some reason beaches are so symbolic of freedom and tranquility, it's great! ^.^

  30. I'm more of a Fall/Winter girl actually. I spend a lot of time in the AC in the summer! ;)

    These covers SCREAM! Summer. Awesome job with the covers! I have seen you mention a few of these. Great List!

    ReplyDelete
  31. These are definitely summery! I mean, what's more summery than sitting outside eating an ice cream cone? Or the ocean? And that Juniors one with the silhouettes and the palm tree and those colors, it just SCREAMS summer!

    Replies
    1. Right? I could keep going with the summer covers, I love em even if they're not books I'd normally read!

      And yes Juniors totally looks like a beach get- together, I don't even know what it's about and I want to read it lol.

      Delete
    2. That's exactly what it looks like. I feel like there ought to be a bonfire there somewhere lol. Although, oddly enough, I've never been to a bonfire on the beach? I've only been to bonfires in completely beach-free areas. But for some reason, that cover looks like a beach bonfire hangout.

      Delete
    3. I feel like the bonfire is behind those people, it clearly has to be there. :) You can almost hear the booming surf too... and I don't think I've been to a beach fire either? All the bonfires I've been to are like in neighborhoods...

      Delete
  32. These are great! They all feel very summery! I love the cover of Juniors, it screams summer. I also love the cover of Summer Days, which I still haven't read and probably should. (Well, that's like half the books on your list, tbh.) Great choices!

    1. Me too, Juniors makes me want to go whereve that is. lol And Summer Days has the most awesome cover! I liked the winter themed one more but there are some nice stories in that one...

  35. I love that most of these have water on them:-) It's definitely feeling like summer where I live, and tomorrow is the last day of school, so these books are really inspiring me!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh wow, ALL of these look very Summery - I just love the colour schemes for them all ♥ GREAT list!

    ReplyDelete
  37. That first cover! If I could get my arms to look like that before summer I would be really happy. Now to keep the cookies out of my mouth while reading.... life is hard!

    The handcuffs under the sand. That seems like an interesting read! I'd buy most of these just based off the covers <3

    ReplyDelete
  38. I already have The Vacationers and Since You've Been Gone in my summer TBR but I will be adding Summer Days and Summer Nights. The cover is sooo beautiful! I wish summer would come fast enough!

  39. I love Dangerous Girls. It's such a good book, so I'm always happy to see it on a list! :-)

  40. I definitely want to try Since You've Been Gone - happy reading! Thanks for visiting my blog earlier. :)

  41. oh my fav has to be Tides! That cover is so cute! AND it's about marine biology! AND I love mermaids AND it's set in New England! yay!

    1. Tides is awesome! And yeah the guy is a marine biology interning on some islands off New Hampshre. Cool setting!

  42. Ironically, I don't actually like summer 😂
    I just reeeeeally do not like hot weather, and since I live in Michigan, if it's hot, you can bet on the fact that it's humid. So humid that it makes it feel like it's actually 20 degrees warmer than it actually is. Talk about sticky!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Aww, I know what you mean. And you're from Michigan too *waves* I've actually run across quite a few Michigan book bloggers, it's kinda cool. :) And I so agree- I love nice 70's weather, but the humidity- no fun!

  43. Great picks! The Summer Days novella collection is PERFECT, and did cross my mind, but then must have escaped my notice when it was time to put my Top Ten Tuesday together. I also love Huntley's for this list (it LOOKS super summer-y) and meant to add Morgan's too (picture perfect summer vibe). Great choices!

    Thanks as always for the Finding Wonderland visit. :)
