At Readers.com, we love a good, can’t-put-down book — or maybe even a whole library full of them. From fan favorites and must-read lists to up-and-coming authors, we’ve interviewed the greatest literary enthusiasts around. So what exactly is on their nightstand? Read on to find out, and be sure to check back regularly for the latest page-turning talk.

Our next What’s On My Nightstand? spotlight is the well-read Deidra of I Believe in Books. This believer and lover of literature shares her reviews and reflections on her blog.

Take a look at the books Deidra can’t wait to get wrapped up in this summer, and be sure to share them with your teen children. The lessons these novels teach about young love, friendship, and coming of age are perfect for the young adults in your life.

1.  Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill

Summertime Reads for Teens: Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill

For me, most of the time, my summer reads tend to be light and easy reads full of fun and boys. Meant to Be also lets you spend some time in London, which I loved. The book is cute, light, funny, and absolutely perfect for the summer.

2.  The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour

Summertime Reads for Teens: The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour

Two words: road trip. Books with road trips tend to end up being my favorites anyways, but they are some of the best things for summer. They are especially so if you’re stuck at home. The book takes place the summer before college, and it’s from a boy’s point of view (and well done at that).

3.  To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Summertime Reads for Teens: To Kill A Mockingbird By Harper Lee

I have to choose this one because this has always been the first book I’ve read as soon as school got out. For me, it means that summer is here. The story really captures what summer felt like when I was a child, and Harper Lee is one of the most incredible writers. So, if you haven’t read it, you must. If you have, read it again!

A special thanks to Deidra  for talking to us about her summery nightstand reads, and be sure to keep the discussion going with her on Twitter. For more interesting reads this summer, be sure to check out our latest suggestions in the What’s On My Nightstand? series.
