Love & Olives by Jenna Evans Welch
Incredible YA contemporary fiction novel about family, love and self discovery, all set against the glorious backdrop of Greece.
People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry
A great summer read, it seems Emily Henry is becoming great at putting these out. People We Meet on Vacation is a will-they-won’t-they romance about two long-time friends trying to figure out if they should be something more…
The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren
The best rom-com writing duo is back with another book. And this one is quite different from the usual. It’s about a single mom trying to find love and a dating site that matches people according to their DNA.
Instructions for Dancing by Nicola Yoon
Nicola Yoon writes the most memorable young adult romances, they’re always totally diverse and filled with quirky teens falling in love. And Instructions for Dancing is definitely no exception.

I love books about straight-laced people (though a series of unfortunate events) finding themselves in wilder and wilder situations. Which is what happens to Olivia the class salutatorian in this book.

Is it summer if you don’t read a book about going on a wild adventure and self discovery and love?
You Have a Match by Emma Lord
A Parent Trap-esque book but not in the way you think. This book is filled with summer camp fun and the discovery of unknown secret sisters…

I think we’re all obsessed with cutesy young adult romances set in yummy foreign countries and France (where this book is set) is the yummiest of them all~!
Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry by Joya Goffney
Chronic list-maker Quinn has her diary stolen and with the threat of it being made public, must complete some pretty wild challenges. This leads her down a path of self discovery and potentially love…
