Back before my parents connected my computer to the internet years ago, I was quite the avid reader. I would gobble up the library and their entire young adult section every month up until recently, actually. Then Netflix and blogs and the rest of the internet swallowed me up and I put real pages on the back burner. Since then, my life has sped up with finishing college, working part/full time, getting married, having a household, and adulthood in all it’s glory. I’ve read a few books on my iPhone’s tiny screen (can’t bring Fifty Shades of Grey’s hardcover to my nannying job!) over the years, but it’s just not the same. I miss holding the crinkled pages of a worn paper back, and leaning into the light, late at night to finish those last pages. I am challenging myself to read five books this summer. Just five, that’s a little over two a month, which is more than doable. All of these books I’ve chosen are from authors I have loved and read in the past. And yes, all are young adult, romance novels, but I must admit, it’s a guilty pleasure of mine. 1. Looking for Alaska – John Green
2. An Abundance of Katherines – John Green
3. Saint Anything – Sarah Dessen
4. The Moon and More – Sarah Dessen
5. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before – Jenny Han
