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.
