#5OnMyTBR — 5 Summer Reads

Hello darlings!

How’s your week? I’ve been binging this one series of audiobooks in prepartion for that one post I’m plannig for autumn so I’m not feeling like a fake reader anymore!


#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook (me!) and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.

This week’s prompt is Summer Reads!

I guess summer reads may be a something different for each of us. For me it’s mostly quirky contemporaries that mostly take place in summer but I’m not that picky. Could be some water involved.

|| A&B by J.C. Lillis ||


πŸ’› sapphics
πŸ’› hate to love
πŸ’› reality show

Okay, this cover is so so ugly and I’m so mad about it since the 1st book in the series (which was m/m) had an amazing cover but bear with me!!

The 1st book moved me so much AND was hilarious! It’s a travesty that I haven’t read the sequel yet! What am I even doing with my life?? Anyway!! Two rival musicians start a secret collaboration. What can come of it???

|| How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake ||


πŸ’› sapphics
πŸ’› misfits
πŸ’› unreliable parent

So many of my GoodReads friends cried over this and it gives off this feeling of running wild and summer storms and not getting enough out of life and sitting quietly when your family is up to some shit and loneliness but loneliness together.

IDK if this fits the summer read theme but it’s my meme and I say I’m feeling summer here so it stays.

πŸ’› sapphic
πŸ’› cliche dates
πŸ’› actually takes place in summer

I already had this book on my #5OnMyTBR at least once but it deserves all the mentions in the world!!

It sounds so cute — two girls decide to go on cliche movie dates for the whole summer but as one of them doesn’t believe in actual love they will break it off in the autumn.

I hope it actually IS as cute as it sounds!!

|| Pink Slip by Katrina Jackson ||


πŸ’› manage (ffm)
πŸ’› spies
πŸ’› erotic thriller

First adult entry of this post!! Cheer for me!!

Anyway, imagine being a PA to a hot married couple of spies and then going on a hot sexy mission with them to a manage club??

Fresh. Hot. Summery.

And the cover is pretty!!

||Β Tell Me How You Really Feel by Aminah Mae Safi ||


πŸ’› sapphic
πŸ’› hate to love

Well, technically this is not on my TBR list but I’ve been eyeing it for some time and many sapphics loved it so why not??

It feels like a cheerful read and that’s what I want for summer so if I have the means I will go for it!!

And, again, the cover is pretty!!

Last thought!

Wow, I think that out of my 5 only one book is actually a summer read?? I keep making those prompts, and yet I’m the person who can keep up with them lmao.


  • Do you participate in #5OnMyTBR?
  • Do you have any of those on your TBR?
  • Have you read them maybe? (Make me read them then!!)
