Though the calendar says the official start of summer is still a week away, schools are out and those who relish this season are happy to extend it. With summer comes the perfect excuse for relaxing with a good book. I know I’m in good company here on Goodreads when I say I want to make sure I don’t find myself without something promising to read. My question for you is this: what’s on your summer reading list??
So far, I’ve got a few gems that have been published for a while that I’ve been slow to catch on to. In that category I have “Bel Canto” by Ann Patchett; “The Glass Castle” by Jeannette Walls; “Messages” by Weyman Jones. For more recently published works, I have “Night Film” by Marisha Pessl; “The Ties that Bind” by Sean Duke; “The Songwriter” by John M. McNamara (to be released this summer).
The list is too short; I know it won’t take me through the summer. I need some recommendations—old or new, it makes no difference. If you’ve got any favorites or are on to the latest hot titles, please pass them along! Because the bulk of my discretionary time is spent writing books, I don’t have a lot of time to peruse the latest offerings. Your suggestions would be much appreciated!
And here’s a book you may want to add to your list—“Golden State” by yours truly, on FREE promotion today. You can check it out on the link below. To quote one reader: “I really like a good underdog story and Roxanne’s character is so likable and her challenges so relatable, I found myself really invested in her. This is smart writing with plenty of witty dialog and an intelligent storyline which gives this book a lot of heart and makes for a great read. I highly recommend it!”
Until next time,
