What’s Good in the Books?


A concept so brilliant that Albert Einstein is kicking himself in his grave thinking “now why didn’t I come up with that?!?!”

And if you know me, you know I love my books.

Thankfully, summer is just around the corner which means I have plenty of time to indulge into books of all types. Comedy, mystery, thrillers, romance…you name it, I read it! Whether I’m at the beach, in my backyard, or even in my own bed, I make sure there’s a book that is reaching distance. Today (or tonight…whenever you’re reading this), I thought I would recommend some books that would be perfect to read in the summertime. The first time I tried to write this post, I rambled on too much about each book (another thing I’m known for, hahaha). This time, I will try to describe each book using 5 words. YES, FIVE. CINCO. CINQ. I guess I’ll stop talking….err…typing, now, and show you some books. WHOO!!!

For the helpless romantic…


The Sun Is Also a Star: By Nicola Yoon

Love. Has. No. Rules/Barriers.

For the thriller seeker…


The Cabin: By: Natasha Preston

Weekend. Party. Turned. To. Murder.

For the relatable life story reader…


Where It Began: By Ann Redisch Stampler

Teen. Who. Realizes. The. Truth.

For the endless laugher…

An Abundance of Katherines: By John Green


Hilarious. Witty. By. John. Green.

(To be honest…any book by John Green is sure to be one of your favorite books…am I right!!!)

For the mysterious, old-fashioned adventurer…


Bright Young Things (1st book of the B.Y.T. series): By Anna Godbersen

1920s. Big. City. Many. Secrets.

For the Youtube obsessor…


Binge: By Tyler Oakley

Funny. Heartfelt. Love. Tyler. More.

For the fantasy fangirl…


Fangirl: By Rainbow Rowell

Geeky. Fandoms. Romance. Totally. Relatable.

(The fandom described in this book was also created into a real novel called Carry On by the same author….how cool is that?!?!)

Well, that’s the end of my little book talk. I’m kinda liking the 5-words-to-describe-stuff vibe. I’m thinking about using the same concept for other stuff too. Back to the books, I hope that you will maybe read these during your endless summer days. I’m sure you will enjoy them as much as I did because these are some of my favorite authors. HAPPY SUMMER READING Y’ALL!!!!

lots of love, Totally Rad 🙂

PS: Let me know in the comments if you read these books and whether you liked them or not. Also, let me know what else you want to see on here (more book reviews, random thoughts, opinions, story-times, etc. etc. etc….the possibilities are endless!)

  1. Oh, this is so awesome! I looove the way you described The Cabin haha! I really want to read Fangirl after hearing great things about it, and I’m hesitant to read Nicola Yoon’s books??? I’ve heard about insta-love and some other stuff and I’m just not interested. Great post! 🙂

    • I’m soooo glad you liked the post! I feel like Fangirl would be a great book for you to read because it’s about a girl who writes a story about this fantasy fandom with vampires and super-natural powers and a bunch of other stuff. It does have a love story involved too but even if romance is not your thing, you will still like it! I think the reason why I like Nicola is because she defies the stereotype of a “perfect romance”. But it really depends on what interests you.
