What to do in Summer? Read the days away Part 2

Well, I am back. And since I love books I am back with Read The Days Away Part 2.

Be sure to check out Read the days away part 1. You can find a link here.

So, I decided to do a book list this time instead of reviews, just to change it up.

I will try to give you some helpful information on choosing a book to read, too.

How this works is, the genre will be on top in Bold, and a list of books in that genre will be below. If there is a series I will list some of my favorite books in the series in Italic.
