Today’s Topic: Books to Read By the Pool/At the Beach (This can also serve as your summer TBR)
Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl
Well, I was going to choose books to be read by the pool or beach. But there are two problems with this.
1.) I’m not a seasonal reader. I choose books like I choose clothes; by whatever catches my fancy that day.
2.) I don’t spend ANY time at the pool or beach. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I was at either of these places.
So instead, this week’s list will be my Summer TBR list. There are some new releases, that I’m really looking forward to tackling.
I will read anything Jenny B Jones writes. Her characters always make me snort with laughter. This is the second book in a new romantic cozy mystery series.
Another second book in a series, doesn’t the cover just scream southern charm? I don’t often read historical fiction set in Mississippi circa 1790.
The first in a new mystery series by Rachel McMillan set in 1930’s Boston. Not only does McMillan write great stories, but her book recommendations at her website have introduced me to some personal favorites.
It’s been a long wait for a new book by this author. And although it isn’t the book I was waiting for, I’m intrigued by the cover and the premise of this contemporary tale. I’ve actually already started reading this one, but haven’t finished. Oh, and it’s currently on sale. Clicking the book title link above will take you to Amazon for purchasing.
I fell in love with the Amory Ames mystery series thanks to Rachel McMillan’s recommendation. These little cozy period mysteries with a female amateur detective are right up my alley. I really need to read this fourth entry before number five releases in September.
Another auto-buy author, I love Denise’s sweet contemporary romances. This one about a marriage of convenience between friends looks especially good.
Although every one of the books on today’s lists are must-reads for me, this is probably number one. Joanne writes the most achingly beautiful stories and this one features a deaf hero.
I love a good chick-lit novel and it’s been too long since Billerbeck released one. I expect awkward character moments which will induce laughter as I read.
Though I’m not a big fan of novellas, when done well they leave me wanting more. This one looks too cute and Basham is an author I trust (and enjoy). So I expect this story to keep me well entertained.
Elizabeth Camden is one of my go-to’s in historical fiction. She writes strong heroines and picks unique time and place settings. I always learn something new about history when I read her stories.
Medieval fiction is my very favorite and Tamara Leigh writes the best. This particular title features her son as the model on the cover.
Though this one released in May, I haven’t had the chance to read it yet. Becky Wade’s contemporary romances are always on my auto-buy list. I like that this series features three sisters, since I have two sisters myself.
What is on your Summer TBR list?
