Summer is my favorite time of year. School is out. The winter snow is gone. And I am free to spend my time however I want. Which means hiking some of my favorite mountain trails, traveling when I have the money, doing a little birdwatching, a little writing, and, of course, reading, reading, reading.
I have a stack of books by my bed just waiting to be read. Some are the latest books from favorite authors, like Kay Hooper, Victoria Thompson, and Lee Child, that I haven't gotten around to reading yet; and some are favorite books like The Riddle-Master of Hed
, that I've been wanting to revisit and reread. Plus, I should probably tackle some of those 29 TBR books sitting on my shelves like The Moonstone
, or Minaret
, or The Odd Women
During the summer I tend to gravitate towards fast-paced page-turners or fun, lighthearted romances -- perfect books to take to the beach. (If only I were going to the beach this summer!) With the summer sun shining, I'm usually not in the mood for anything too serious or scholarly. But there are no rules when it comes to reading...or to summer.
So, go outside. Enjoy the sun! Spend time with friends and family. Star gaze. Play games. Hike. Laugh. Have fun. And let the summer reading begin!
What will you be reading this summer?
