The Summer List Reviews
*3.5 Stars* - rounded up because the first half of this book was everything!
A touching story of friendship…
THE SUMMER LIST had me divided. The first half was a solid five-star read, one I could not put down. The setting alone was enough to make me want to dive inside these pages and swim across the sunlit lake beside these lovable characters.
This author brought to life the undeniable purity and intoxicating fervor of young friends. Of new friends. The friendship of Laura and Casey was like a lo ...more
The Summer List is compulsively readable -- I could not put it down. The premise is fresh, the writing is tight and evocative, the sense of place is so precise I feel as if I've been to every spot in the book. Dark, sexy, sad and surprising -- I loved this novel.
4.5 Summertime Stars☀ 🌟🌟🌟🌟.5
What a beautiful story about the bonds of friendship... this book brilliantly brought you back in time to the lazy days of summer in your teens... when all I cared about was boys, my clothes, boys, my hair, boys, and my tan.... now I am longing for the good good good old days! And yes I was a super deep teenager obviously, LOL 😂
This book is about best friends Laura and Casey... Loved both of these girls and how strong the bond between them was... i’d love to spend a ...more
Norma and I read The Summer List with two of our Traveling Sisters and two more joined us in our discussion. We all started off very comfortable in our lush coulee looking over our calm and inviting lake (really there are no lakes in coulees) however it sure felt like we were by a lake with the feel of this atmospheric setting Amy Mason Doan has created for us.
The Summer List started off as a tender and enduring story between two friends Laura and Casey and we really enjoyed some eleme ...more
4.5 stars for this wonderful read by Amy Mason Doan. This is my first book by this author, but it won't be the last.
The story of Laura and Casey was very sweet and poignant, in a way because we've all had something similar happen where we had a good friend and something happened to break apart the friendship. I think everyone's experienced that, it usually hurts and many think what if, but not many people get a chance to see what if.
This story is about how the friendship happened, how it grew, b ...more
The Summer List falls into the category of impressive debut novels for me. I couldn't believe this was Amy Mason Doan's first time at bat! She struck one out of the park. (Pardon the baseball euphemisms, but it's summer!)
This novel was a wonderful tribute to friendship. It reminded me of The Gospel According to Drew Barrymore in terms of the friendship dynamic, air of mystery, and characters named Laura. Both books also shift between the present and the past to tell the story, and we learn new s ...more
I was given an advanced copy through Netgalley. I have to say I Love this book, the characters and the ending. To every girl who’s had that one best friend I highly recommend this book. I took time reading it but as I got toward the end I couldn’t put it down. It brought back memories from my childhood and the bond I shared with my best friend. I can relate to Laura a lot since I’m adopted as well and my mom was a teenager when she had me. I highly recommend this book to family and friends and I ...more
I was lucky to receive an ARC of this novel about friendship and a second chance at love. It's a heart-warming story that's a perfect beach read or book to curl up with in front of a fire on a stormy day. This novel is for anyone who ever lost touch with a best friend and thought about reuniting with them. It's also a great mystery with an engaging plot. I highly recommend!
