Inspired By: Summery Book Covers

I love a good, light-hearted summer read! There's nothing better than having a book in one hand and a cold drink in the other while the sun is shining. These four books below are not only great reads, but they have some kick-ass female characters who are hardworking (sometimes at the wrong thing), imperfect, funny, and have some boy (and girl!) problems. 

Love Charms and Other Catastrophes
Love Charms & Other Catastrophes
Written by Kimberly Karalius; Aspiring love-charm maker Hijiri Kitamura was excited to come back to Grimbaud for her sophomore year—until she learned about the upcoming charm-making competition. Now she wants to competeand win!but Love itself has delivered her a special gift: the perfect boyfriend.

So cute! This book is too cute for words! (Read my review here.) Hijiri makes simple but wonderful love charms, so she dresses in cute basics, like a purple cardigan, a green dress, and black flats. Or dress like her love interest Ken in a pink t-shirt, jeans and teal sneakers.

Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here
Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here
Written by Anna Breslaw; When Scarlett’s beloved TV show is canceled and her longtime crush, Gideon, is sucked out of her orbit and into the dark and distant world of Populars, Scarlett turns to the fanfic message boards for comfort. This time, though, her subjects aren’t the swoon-worthy stars of her fave series—they’re the real-life kids from her high school.

If you like books about fanfiction, writing, and snarky characters then this is for you! (Read my review.) Dress like Scarlett herself in a chambray top, gray tee, black jeans, and Converse. Or put on a floral dress and green espadrilles to dress like Ruth, Scarlett's weed-smoking 73-year-old neighbor.

Paper Girls Vol. 1
Paper Girls Vol. 1
Written by Brian K. Vaugh; In the early hours after Halloween of 1988, four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls uncover the most important story of all time. Suburban drama and otherworldly mysteries collide in this smash-hit series about nostalgia, first jobs, and the last days of childhood.

An interesting graphic novel about four girls in 1988 who encounter some odd things. (Read my review.) Go back in time to wear some 1980s-inspired clothing: an olive jacket, a graphic tee, jean shorts, and black boots. Or maybe a burgundy bomber jacket, striped top, gray sweats, and pink Converse.

Giant Days Vol. 1
Giant Days Vol 1
Written by John Allison, Lissa Treiman, and Whitney Cogar; Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of boys, experimentation, and academia, they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive. 

I LOVE this graphic novel and the second volume too! The three girls are so real and funny and a great example of friendship. (Read my review.) If you're feeling a little tomboyish go for an outfit that Susan would wear: a striped sweater, jeans, and ankle boots. Or maybe like nerdy girl Daisy by putting on an embroidered top, striped skirt, and pink flats. Or if you have a flair for the dramatic like Esther then dress in a plaid dress, skull ring, sunglasses, and black booties.
