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. (Goodreads)
Summer Days and Summer Nights is the 2nd YA anthology edited by Stephanie Perkins set to be released this summer. I really enjoyed the 1st anthology My True Love Gave to Me which I read the Christmas before last. I loved it so much I got both the US and UK covers. As with the first, there are authors I am familiar with and some that I am not, but that’s the beauty of an anthology. You get something familiar and something new to try.
