Fluffy Book Recommendations Before Summer Ends!

For those in the Northern Hemisphere, summer will be ending at the end of this week, September 22nd. That’s right – for a lot of people it means no more summer feels, warm weather, beach balls are put away, no more sand in between our toes, and winter is comingggggggggggggggg. However, we are about to dash into fall, which is pretty epic, but for a contemporary loving gal, I figured we could go over some great contemporary books that give us all the summer vibe so we can squeeze a little more summer reading out before all is lost?

How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True by Sarah Strohmeyer


If you’re looking for a book that will take you to an amusement park in the middle of summer, this is the book! It takes us into the world of a Disney World-like amusement park where our main character is taking on an overbearing boss and princesses and a handsome prince for the summer. It has funnies, so much fluffy cuteness, and if you’re a fan of Disney, it totally takes you a little bit deeper into what it would be like to work there for a summer. Plus, isn’t that cover made of fluffy summer dreams???

Sasquatch, Love, and Other Imaginary Things by Betsy Aldredge & Carrie DuBois-Shaw


Okay, okay, okay. Bigfoot book on a summer rec list? Sha is off shaking her head in a corner somewhere in Canada. But this book has actual valid reasons. Our main character gets stuck in a reality TV show competition in the middle of summer to see who finds the best evidence of our Squatchy friend. It has a camp/woodsy setting, some adorable feels, and an adorable little ship in the middle of family feels. If you’re a fan of camping…and Bigfoot…this could be a fun little way to move into fall books!

It’s Not Me, It’s You by Stephanie Kate Strohm


If you’re looking for a book to get you back into the school year or you’re somehow missing the feels of high school (lol, but is anyone really???), this is the book for it! It’s such a quirky little read about a senior doing a class project of oral history on all of those that she dated before. It involves so many funnies, a great cast of characters, one adorable ships, and the promise of summer coming since it’s right before prom.

Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian


Is there anything more summer than ice cream? Not to me. I mean, you can love ice cream anytime, but going to the local ice cream stand is so much of my summer life. And summer waist apparently. This book focuses on a local ice cream stand where feminism is totally killing it and the ice cream is delicious. It will forever leave you craving ice cream along with some epic feminism involved and one adorable fluffy romance.

The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller


It’s your local PSA that you should read this adorable, fluffy, ADORABLE book. Yes, it has ultimate summer vibes since it’s a whole summer of going to comic book stores and LARPing. Ugh, it’s the ultimate fluff book for me, and just please read it.

What are some of your recommendations for summer reads? Are you going to be sneaking in any more summer reads? Are there books you only read in certain genres? Let’s discuss in the comments below!

  1. You had me at fluffy! Yes. Strohm is a total go-to for fun and fluffy. Stay Sweet was so, so good. This one has me really looking forward to Vivian’s next release. I have Zoe, and I guess I should move it up the TBR based on this post. I might have to cave and see if my library has the other two books. I have been wanting to read them both, but the eLibrary doesn’t have them. Great list!

  2. All these sound so adorable! I’m fully immersed in my fantasy reading again, but I’ll definitely be saving these for a windy or rainy day when I’m in the mood for some fluff and summer feels ❤

      1. Oh my gosh it totally is! And yet I have a full time job and school, I’m a mess. (Btw, the boy decided that we must be called count and countess, but I informed him that I had an alternate title so this was perfect and I have to show him it.)

  3. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas! I love fluffy books and I’m always searching for new ones to read. I love having warm, cute, summery books to read in the dead of winter. And I haven’t read most of the ones on this list, so my winter TBR just got bigger.

    1. Yessssssssssss. Fluffy books are instantly added so fast to my TBR usually, so I’m glad that I could help! But I haven’t really tried doing that for winter, but it kind of seems like the best idea so you can feel all the feels??


  4. Ahh I wish we could cling onto summer longer! Weather at my place is just yuck right now 😅 lovely recommendations though! Haha my TBR is growing so much ✌️✌️
