Summer reading…

Heading into a long weekend, and with a trip on the California Zephyr train [will be on that train 3-31/2 days total] upcoming, it’s time to look at summer reading! I have a number of books I’ve been meaning to read, I will mention a few here today. The four books you see above are ones that are releasing this summer (that I’m quite excited for!) but I have more to talk about too.

Jennifer Estep gets to go first, because I have enjoyed every book she’s written! If you’re looking for a YA book fix, I strongly recommend her Mythos Academy series. Dark Frost is the latest in the series, and it releases this Tuesday. Her Elemental Assassin is of course my #1 Urban Fantasy series – period.

Meg Cabot has a new Heather Wells book coming out! I am really looking forward to reading this one, and I hope it is a lot of fun. I’m excited to see her back with a book that is neither YA nor paranormal. Just a murder/mystery/romance with a former teen pop star heroine.

Ilona Andrews is a husband/wife writing team and for dark, gritty, action packed, amazing books I suggest everything they’ve written. Indeed – I have never given one of their books less than an A-.

Jen Lancaster has a new book just out. I actually was excited for this one and downloaded it… but 3 pages in closed it and grabbed something else. Not in the mood? I guess… I hope I can get into it soon because her first two books were so funny – and perfect summer reads.

Meljean Brook is a new-to-me author that I’m hoping to check out more this summer – as always I will let you know what I discover.

W hat other books will I uncover this summer? Who will be the best poolside or curled up in my favorite chair reads? I guess I will find out! I will be sure to share new favorites that I find along the way.


 Note: you can read all of my past book related and recommended read posts here, and if you’re an avid reader and just want MORE, I do guest book reviews and pieces on my love of happily ever after on a regular basis here.

  1. Bon Voyage, May! Hope you have a wonderful time, sounds like you should!
    I just read A Life of Bright Ideas by Sandra Kring, it was dear, sad and uplifting…with some great Bright Ideas to start off each chapter! I just saw an old episode of Ella Publishing on the Craft Channel, Wendy recommended Love Walked In by Marisa De Los Santos…I just got it out of the Library…it starts in a coffee shop, doesn’t that give it instant credit!!!LOL.
    I’m off to look at the rest of your links, have a great time…I’m looking forward to more ‘sneak peeks’ at your plans for the summer camp and the camp itself!

  2. Have a great time! Love Ilona Andrews and have to look up some of the rest of those authors. TFS 🙂

  3. I love the Ilona Andrews books and have read them all! I will now be looking for this one. Have fun on your trip and with your books. Summer is a great time to catch up!
