I’m looking for recommendations for some light reads this summer. I am and I like modern romance novels. Maybe something about a girl finding romance abroad? something that will keep my interest 😉
PS: I already read the twilight series… I do like Nicholas Sparks, but I’m looking for something not everyone knows about!

Matched – Ally Condie
It’s a futuristic romance novel. And really good–I’d give you a plot summary but I may accidently spoil it for you.
There is a squeal to this as well, Crossed.
Wicked Allure by Leslie C. Ferdinand is GREAT.
It isn’t Young Adult, but it is very good and it makes you want to read it again right after you’ve finished it. 🙂 It also isn’t supernatural either.
It is an erotica novel but it does have a fantastic back story and isn’t just about sex.
Here is the book description:
What Does A Man Say to the Woman He Betrayed But Never Stopped Loving? Three years ago, Zachary Steele refused to entertain thoughts of permanency with any woman. A hedonist at heart, he didn’t want to corrupt the much younger, Madigan DeLeon, by continuing his affair with her. With the hidden scars of his past, he didn’t believe in happily-ever-after. By the time he realized how much Madigan meant to him, he’d driven her away. Then, one night, after being clean for a number of years, Zach briefly falls off the bandwagon. He believes his lovemaking to Madi is a drug-induced hallucination. The resulting consequences tell another story. What Does A Woman Do When the Only Man She’s Ever Loved Hurt Her So Deeply She Feared She’d Never Recover? Three years after her affair with Zach so abruptly ended, celebutante, Madigan DeLeon, is thrust back into Zach’s life by her mother’s machinations. Brought home under the false pretenses of repairing her damaged relationship with her mother, Madi instead finds herself running a private sex club called Wicked Allure. Forced to confront her anger at his betrayal and grief at the loss of what might’ve been, Madi faces the realization that she’s never stopped loving Zach. Can Two Broken Hearts Set Aside Anger and Betrayal to Find True Love Once and For All? Searching the deepest recesses of their hearts, in a place where pride and pain has no room, Madi and Zach must decide if their bond is strong enough to take a second chance at love. Or if resuming their sexual relationship is an irresistible wicked allure and the ghosts of their former relationship will finally, and forever, sever all ties between them.
Source(s): read the book and Im waiting for the other three to come out 🙂
How about reading something that isn’t at the Junior High B-level bee ess of a romance book and stepping up to the real adult good-writing, award-winning, high-brow books with class, style, and top shelf quality, hmm?
(okay, just joking, but…Try reading A Soldier of the Great War by Mark Helprin. It’s a love story. Don’t be fooled by the title. Awesome book.
Try This Tangled Thing Called Love and Lucky Charm by Marie Astor
The notebook, Twilight
Twenty Boy Summer…Don’t worry though because it’s not as bad as it sounds. Very sad, but summer oriented at the same time.
Also try The Summer I turned pretty.
The Last Song. Sad, but good.
