I have to echo John in hoping that everyone had a nice Memorial Day weekend! There’s just something about a three-day weekend that really recharges things. And who can begrudge the unofficial start of summer. In true form, I managed to give myself my annual Awkward Uneven Starter Sunburn—yes, annual—so it looks like things are off to a solid start!
Aside from vacations and warm weather and sunburns, the best part of summer is the ubiquitous summer reading list. I’m a sucker for a good beach read, so I’m on the lookout for a bunch of new titles I can put aside for my summertime reading. I thought I’d also share this list from Entertainment Weekly of eighteen books they recommend for the summer. For myself, there are a few titles I’m interested in reading: Aimee Bender’s The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, Jeannette Walls’s The Glass Castle, and Lauren Oliver’s Before I Fall, to name a few. There are also a couple of series I’ve been meaning to dive into.
How about you? In contrast to Lauren’s post from last week, I want to know what YOU plan to read this summer. Are there certain titles that have been sitting on your shelf (or that you’ve been meaning to purchase) that you hope to finally pick up? Or maybe you plan to revisit a classic? Let me know!
