Confession: I had this HUGE plan to have read at least one of my summer books by now for this Book of the Month post, but truth be told, between Miami and life, I haven’t had much of a chance to curl up and read. I CAN tell you that the last of the Books in my Beach Bag This Summer are on order and will be here soon! You can look for that post in early July!
BUT in the meantime, because I know that I do have a lot of readers who enjoy a good young adult novel from time to time, I thought I’d share a few thoughts on one that I read earlier this year on my flight to Nashville, Tennessee.
Open Road Summer by Emery Lord is a story of friendship and young love on the open road. Newly single Reagan decides to leave her rebellious past behind her to join her best friend (and country superstar) Lilah Montgomery on her summer tour. Yes, I imagined Lilah as Taylor Swift the entire time. Enter Matt Finch, fellow country star with the boy next door charm no girl could resist. Not even Reagan who has sworn off dating for the summer.
If you like country music, road trips, and a cute young love story (but more importantly, a great story about two best friends and their friendship) – Open Road Summer will not disappoint. It’s totally a fun read that will give you butterflies and bring you back to memories of your first love.
If you’re looking for a sexy, smutty read – you should probably check out either of the last two Books of the Month: Ugly Love or Beautiful Secret. Or you can order my friend V’s first book: One More Shot!
Got a book that I must read? I’d love to hear about it! Drop the name in the comments below or tweet me @crystalcrichard!
