Title: The Summer Remains
Author: Seth King
Published: February 14th 2015

Twenty-four-year-old Summer Johnson knows two things. The first is that due to a quickly worsening medical condition, she faces a risky surgery in three months’ time that may or may not end in her death. The second is that she would like to fall in love before then.

As spring sinks into her namesake season on the Florida coastline, Summer plays the odds and downloads a new dating app - and after one intriguing message from a beautiful surfer named Cooper Nichols, it becomes clear that the story of what may be her last few months under the sun is about to be completely revised. All she has to do now is write something worth reading.

Tender, honest, devastating and triumphant, The Summer Remains explores a very human battle being waged in a very digital age: the search for a love that will outlast this temporary borrowing of bones. In an era when many feel compelled to share and re-share anything about everything, prepare to feel a love so special, you will want to hug it close and make it yours forever.


Why? Because first, look at the cover! Yes it is simple but I find it pretty. And second, the synopsis sounds really interesting and intriguing.

I'm not sure when I will get this though because it's not available in the Philippines and I can't buy through Amazon. So yeah... I will probably ask someone in the US to buy it for me and then have it shipped here. Haha! Or hopefully, The Summer Remains will be available on Book Depository! :)

That's all folks!
Have a nice day!


  1. Aw, this sounds really sweet and fluffy (except for the whole medical condition thing...). And yes, that cover is sooooo pretty. Now I kind of want it too...

    1. It looks nice, right? I feel like this book will be a heart-breaking one. :)

  2. I'm always complaining about not getting books I want when I want them but I'm lucky to be in the UK and can use Amazon. It sounds like you have to work so hard to get the books you want! That must be so frustrating. I hope you get the book soon.

    1. It can be frustrating at times. We also have a different library system here in the Philippines, so I really have to wait for our local book stores to carry a newly released book or any books in general. :) Although, it saves me from buying too many books. Haha!
