As the school year comes to an end, many avid book readers are beginning to develop their summer must read list. May was a big month in terms of book releases, so there definitely is something for every reader.

“I can’t wait to read all of the newly released books over the summer,” says sophomore Megan Kick.

One of the most anticipated books of May was Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han. It was released in early May, and it did not disappoint. It is the third and final installment of the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series. This book follows Peter and Lara Jean’s senior year in high school. Many WHHS students, especially upperclassmen, will relate to the struggle of choosing a college and worrying about being separated from friends and family. This book is perfect for fans of realistic fiction and romance novels. It truly is an amazing end to a wonderful series.

Fans of books involving devastating medical conditions, such as The Fault in Our Stars and Holding up the Universe, will definitely enjoy The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr. This truly brings a new and exciting spin, normally filled with tragic love stories about cancer (wannabe The Fault in Our Stars), as it follows Flora, a girl with amnesia. She cannot remember anything, from memories to her own age. Then, she has her first kiss with her best friend’s boyfriend, and she remembers it, but not what led up to it. She sets out on a quest to find answers. While this book is very enjoyable, it does slightly portray amnesia inaccurately.

For the sci-fi lovers, a great read is A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas. It is the newest installment of the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. It is very suspenseful as war approaches and destruction seems inevitable. The main character is Feyre, and she must decide who to trust and who is out to betray her.

All lovers of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell who are desperately searching for something similar should definitely read Grace and the Fever. It follows Grace, a huge fan of “Fever Dream”, who feels as if she is the only one in her school who still loves it. She is tempted to stop obsessing over it until she meets her idol and they have an unexpected romance. While there are new elements and it is a wonderful book, it can be a little too much like Fangirl at times.

Make sure to check out these books for a quick escape from the stress of finals or a perfect book to bring to the beach!
