My Paper & Hearts Society Summer Reading List *AD Gifted

BKMRK sent me a free electronic review copy of The Paper & Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie.

The Paper & Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie is not only filled with fabulous friendships, but an excellent book club. The pages are bursting with recommendations, and I loved the passion of the characters when they were talking about the books.

I was inspired while reading to pick up a few of the books recommended by various characters, and compile my own summer reading list solely from the recommendations of The Paper & Hearts Society.
"Are any of you really going to read them just because I said so?"
"Yes!" Olivia replied, her voice raising "That's the whole point of the book club."
There were so many excellent recommendations, from One Italian Summer by Keris Stainton to Unconventional by Maggie Harcourt, a fair few of which I have already read. Every time I came across a book, I jotted it down, then I whittled it down to a manageable summer reading list.

We all know how I do when I set myself a TBR, it's either a resounding success like #TheReadingQuest Reading Challenge or it's a complete failure like the the UK Re-Readathon.

So what's on my Summer TBR?
  • The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
  • Nimona by Noella Stevenson
  • One Hundred Nights of Hero by Isabel Greenberg
  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
  • Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
I deliberately picked out things I wouldn't ordinarily pick for myself, and it just so happens that I can also knock off some of my 30 Classics Before 30 as well.


  1. This is a great idea! :) I still need to read One Italian Summer myself.

  2. I definitely want to read The Bell Jar after reading this book!

  3. I've heard some amazing things about My Paper & Hearts Society!😊
