Books List #2: SUMMER!!!

Sorry it's been awhile.... Things have just sorta gotten away from me... That and the lack of knowing what to write about... Well here are some summer themed books for your reading enjoyment :) Once again my site of choice is (I really do have an unhealthy obsession with books and Barnes & Noble, don't I?) And this time I'm more going by searching "summer"...

Summer In The City by Elizabeth Chandler
Athletic Jamie isn't sure about spending the summer in the city with her romance-novel-writing mum. But when she meets irresistible Josh, Jamie realizes she could probably use all the romance advice she can get!
Lacrosse camp 9 a.m.-noon (can't be late! "Coach" Josh will freak out)
Basketball camp 1:00-4:00 (so many screaming kids. . . )
Shopping with Mona 4:30 (finally a break)
Date with Andrew 7:30 (he's so perfect. . . isn't he?)
This is by the same author who wrote the Kissed By An Angel series

The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy by Jenny Han
Belly has always lived for the summertime because it means all her favorite things: swimming, the beach and the Fischer boys, Conrad and Jeremiah. She has spent every summer with them at Cousins Beach for as long as she can remember. She has always been in love with Conrad and finally, one summer, it seems like he might have feelings for her too. But it turns out, so does Jeremiah.
As the summers go on, Belly has to choose between two brothers who love her as she comes to the realization that she will have to break one of their hearts.
I've heard of this series before, I just don't remember where....

Summer Of Fear by Lois Duncan
From the moment Rachel's family takes in her orphaned cousin Julia, strange things start to happen. Rachel grows suspicious but soon finds herself alienated from her own life. Julia seems to have enchanted everyone to turn against her, leaving Rachel on her own to try and prove that Julia is a witch. One thing about Julia is certain-she is not who she says she is, and Rachel's family is in grave danger.
This is by the same author that wrote I Know What You Did Last Summer.... Speaking of which...

I Know What You Did Last Summer by Lois Duncan
Some secrets just won't stay buried.
They didn't mean it. They didn't mean to hit the boy. There was a party, and it was an accident...that wasn't who they were. They were pre-law, a football player, bound for New York. No one could know, so Barry, Julie, Helen, and Ray swore one another to secrecy. But now, a year later, someone knows. Julie receives a haunting, anonymous threat: "I know what you did last summer." The dark lie is unearthed, and before the four friends know it they need to outsmart a killer...or they will be the next to die.
Leave the lights on when reading this classic thriller! This new edition features modernized text and a new introduction by Lois Duncan, the master of teen horror.
I have no idea whether there's any difference between this and the original... So I don't know about but i'm gonna see if i can find the original...

Seventeenth Summer by Maureen Daly
Angie didn’t think she would fall in love, especially not with someone in her small town. But when she meets Jack during the summer before she goes off to college, all bets are off. From the moment they meet, Angie and Jack can’t get enough of each other. Even though Angie’s family thinks she should be with someone more sophisticated and with a brighter future, Angie knows Jack is the right one for her. But although Angie and Jack are in for a summer full of romance, first heartbreak is not far behind...
First published in 1942 and every bit as relevant today, Seventeenth Summer chronicles a pivotal experience with extraordinary freshness and sensitivity.
And before you say "oh that's too old and outdated! I'm not reading that!" (I'm not saying all of you think like that) just read the excerpt on the Barnes & Noble website, give it a shot!

So it's considerably shorter and way over do but here's another book list...
