Top 3 Summer Must-Reads

As a self-titled bookworm, I believe I am a reputable source for summer reading books. I’ve compiled my top three summer must-reads that I’ve already crossed off my checklist, and now you can check them off yours too.

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

This romance novel has its cheesy moments for sure, but wraps you into every developing character moment and leaves you wanting more. Main character Lily opens her own floral shop in the city of Boston after escaping a tumultuous childhood of love and abuse. She finds her true love in the city, but is soon faced with his demons. As if that isn’t spicy enough, her first love from aforementioned tumultuous childhood pops up again, bringing up feelings from years ago. This casual read will have you hooked from the first chapter.

IT by Stephen King

I’ll admit, this isn’t exactly “light summer reading” but it is enthralling and the summer gives you plenty of time to read its 1000+ pages. A group of young kids join unlikely forces to not only battle their elementary bullies, but also a deadly force killing the town’s children. There are scary pop-up moments, heartwarming details that emerge from the friend group, and one twisted tale that is gripping from the moment you pick up the book.

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

One of my all-time favorite books, this story made my jaw drop multiple times throughout the entire plot. A doctor and his patient are on a journey to unlock the patient’s secret to not speaking for several years. The town and other doctors have their own theories, but this one particular doctor believes he can crack her. Little does she know, he plays a more pivotal piece to her silent story than she knows (yet).

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
