Summer Days & Summer Nights

Finished Summer Days & Summer Nights, an anthology edited by Stephanie Perkins.  I received a copy from the publisher for review.

Summary (from Goodreads):

Maybe it’s the long, lazy days, or maybe it’s the heat making everyone a little bit crazy. Whatever the reason, summer is the perfect time for love to bloom. Summer Days & Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories, written by twelve bestselling young adult writers and edited by the international bestselling author Stephanie Perkins, will have you dreaming of sunset strolls by the lake. So set out your beach chair and grab your sunglasses. You have twelve reasons this summer to soak up the sun and fall in love.

Featuring stories by Leigh Bardugo, Francesca Lia Block, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Brandy Colbert, Tim Federle, Lev Grossman, Nina LaCour, Stephanie Perkins, Veronica Roth, Jon Skovron, and Jennifer E. Smith.”

This is a perfect summer read.  These are lovely sweet stories (well, some of them) and are perfect for any YA reader.  Many are contemp, but there are also some paranormal and one that I would even classify as a horror story.  And many have happy endings, but not all do.

Basically, no matter how your tastes run, you’ll find at least one story here to make you smile.

Personally, my favorite is probably the Libba Bray (not coincidentally, that’s also the horror story) but every story in this collection is incredibly enjoyable.

Grab this book, a towel, some sunscreen and the beverage of your choice—summer is coming!

Recommended.
