How Long Is Summer?
YEE HAW! It is time
to plan for my summer reading! I am always happy to figure out what I am going to read in the summer. I love to read books that are set on beaches – so I can be at the beach when I read them. Of course my beach is usually a lake or a pond.
I love reading books that are HEA with fun characters in a town or place I know so well. I love reading books that are lighter in nature, although that does not stop me from reading serious books either. So far I have 16 books on my list –
but those are just the ones I need to reserve at the library.
Some of my favorite authors have new books coming out that celebrate the beach. Elin Hilderbrand has a new book with The Matchmaker, Nancy Thayer with Nantucket Sisters and Dorothy Benton Frank with The Hurricane Sisters. Three authors have books coming
out that celebrate summer with titles like: That Summer, The Summer Wind, and That Summer Night.
Those books are so appealing to me. A newer series by Susan Wiggs has me has looking forward to reading The Beekeeper's Ball. Oh and those books are all coming out in June!
In July and August for me it is all about series with its next books. The series by Faye Kellerman about Peter Decker and Rena Lazarus are always great books. Margaret Maron has another book out in her series about Judge Deborah Knott and
her huge family and small town southern charm. Jill Shalvis, Robin Carr, and Susan Mallery all have new books coming out about their towns of Lucky Harbor, Thunder Point, and Fool’s Gold. And to top it all off, Jayne Castle has a new book
coming out in her futuristic series called The Hot Zone.
Oh look the new Book Page is in! I have to go check out the new books to add to my lists. Did
I remember Chris Bohjalian’s new book (Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands) on the list? Is that the new book by Herman…Wait, how long is summer?
