In april schreef ik al een artikel met mijn tbr voor 2022. Vandaag heb ik een artikel met de 4 boeken die ik heel graag deze zomer wil lezen. Er zitten 2 new releases bij die in augustus uitkomen. Allemaal geven ze mij heel erg summer vibes!
Beach read – Emily Henry
Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction. January Andrews writes bestselling romance. When she pens a happily ever after, he kills off his entire cast. They’re polar opposites. In fact, the only thing they have in common is that for the next three months, they’re living in neighboring beach houses, broke, and bogged down with writer’s block. Until, one hazy evening, one thing leads to another and they strike a deal designed to force them out of their creative ruts: Augustus will spend the summer writing something happy, and January will pen the next Great American Novel. She’ll take him on field trips worthy of any rom-com montage, and he’ll take her to interview surviving members of a backwoods death cult (obviously). Everyone will finish a book and no one will fall in love. Really.
Vorig jaar werd ik echt doodgegooid met beach read en people we meet on vacation van Emily Henry. Waardoor ik eigenlijk geen interesse er meer in had. Tot ik opzoek ging naar leuke boeken om in de zomer te lezen. Toen pas las ik eigenlijk waar Beach read over gaat en werd ik enthousiast!
How Moon Fuentez fell in love with the universe – Raquel Vasquez Gilliland 2 augustus 2022
When her twin sister reaches social media stardom, Moon Fuentez accepts her fate as the ugly, unwanted sister hidden in the background, destined to be nothing more than her sister’s camerawoman. But this summer, Moon also takes a job as the “merch girl” on a tour bus full of beautiful influencers and her fate begins to shift in the best way possible. Most notable is her bunkmate and new nemesis, Santiago Phillips, who is grumpy, combative, and also the hottest guy Moon has ever seen. Moon is certain she hates Santiago and that he hates her back. But as chance and destiny (and maybe, probably, close proximity) bring the two of them in each other’s perpetual paths, Moon starts to wonder if that’s really true. She even starts to question her destiny as the unnoticed, unloved wallflower she always thought she was. Could this summer change Moon’s life as she knows it?
Vorige week kreeg ik ineens ontzettend zin om een boek te lezen met een road trip erin. Elke keer kwam dit boek tevoorschijn, maar helaas kwam dit boek pas 2 augustus uit. Toen heb ik wel ‘I wanna be where you are” van Kistinia Forest besteld. Toen heb ik dit boek op mijn zomer TBR gezet voor dit jaar. Ik houd heel erg van boeken met enemies to lovers en zo te lezen bevat dit boek dat!
Carrie soto is back – Taylor Jenkins Reid 30 augsustus 2022
Carrie Soto is fierce, and her determination to win at any cost has not made her popular. But by the time she retires from tennis, she is the best player the world has ever seen. She has shattered every record and claimed twenty Grand Slam titles. And if you ask Carrie, she is entitled to every one. She sacrificed nearly everything to become the best, with her father, Javier, as her coach. A former champion himself, Javier has trained her since the age of two. But six years after her retirement, Carrie finds herself sitting in the stands of the 1994 US Open, watching her record be taken from her by a brutal, stunning player named Nicki Chan. At thirty-seven years old, Carrie makes the monumental decision to come out of retirement and be coached by her father for one last year in an attempt to reclaim her record. Even if the sports media says that they never liked “the Battle-Axe” anyway. Even if her body doesn’t move as fast as it did. And even if it means swallowing her pride to train with a man she once almost opened her heart to: Bowe Huntley. Like her, he has something to prove before he gives up the game forever.
Ik heb net Malibu Rising van Taylor Jenkins Reid uitgelezen en daarin komt Carrie Soto ook kort voor. Tennis is de enige sport die ik af en toe wel leuk vind om te kijken. Daarnaast is Taylor Jenkins Reid één van mijn favoriete nieuwe schrijfsters!
City of girls – Elizabeth Gilbert
In 1940, nineteen-year-old Vivian Morris has just been kicked out of Vassar College, owing to her lackluster freshman-year performance. Her affluent parents send her to Manhattan to live with her Aunt Peg, who owns a flamboyant, crumbling midtown theater called the Lily Playhouse. There Vivian is introduced to an entire cosmos of unconventional and charismatic characters, from the fun-chasing showgirls to a sexy male actor, a grand-dame actress, a lady-killer writer, and no-nonsense stage manager. But when Vivian makes a personal mistake that results in professional scandal, it turns her new world upside down in ways that it will take her years to fully understand. Ultimately, though, it leads her to a new understanding of the kind of life she craves-and the kind of freedom it takes to pursue it. It will also lead to the love of her life, a love that stands out from all the rest. Now ninety-five years old and telling her story at last, Vivian recalls how the events of those years altered the course of her life – and the gusto and autonomy with which she approached it.
Dit boek klinkt zo onwijs gaaf. Ik houd heel erg van boeken die zich afspelen in het verleden en de jaren 40 lijkt me heel gaaf om over te lezen. Daarnaast klinkt dit boek een klein beetje als één van mijn favoriete boeken, The seven husbands of Evelyn Hugo.
