It’s summertime and the reading is easy…

As you may know already, I love to read.
I read all kinds of stuff (I’m definitely not a book snob). 
And I usually have more than 1 book on the go at a time.
This summer my selection is a little all over the place, 
but then who am I trying to kid…
I’m a little all over the place…that’s how I roll…

So here goes: this is what I’m reading this summer:

1.  Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness:  I can’t wait to dive into the second book of the Discovery of Witches series.  The first book was great!


2.  Shades of Grey by E L James:  Yes, I jumped on this band wagon.  This series is not for everyone.  But I liked their love story (and yes this is a love story.)  I’ll leave it at that.  
Laters, baby.


3.  The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen:  I’m a big fan of this author.  Her books are fun, light and magical reads.  Perfect for summer!


4.  Bel-Ami by Guy De Maupassant:  Just keeping it real here, the cover had Rob Pattinson on it.  Oh and it sounded good.  Yes that’s what drew me to it…

Anyway, got any great book recommendations?
I’m always on the look out for a great read!
Have a great day!

    Great selection. The Peach Keeper sounds like it’s right up my alley.

    I’m currently reading “Gone, Girl” which is pretty great. I am also getting sucked back into my junior high days and reading an e-series by Francine Pascal that tells the story of Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield at age 30. OMG, it’s amazing. Which is funny b/c I honestly didn’t think I could get sucked in like I did. Also have “Swim” by Jennifer Weiner on my Kindle and a few Sophie Kinsella books waiting for my attention…

    i totally laughed when you said ‘laters, baby’. I agree, i love their love story but thats about it. I got bored reading #2 and #3. This series is definitely not for everyone. Im interested in the ‘peach keeper’ is it good?

    I finished the 50 Shades trilogy a few weeks ago. I really enjoyed it, but found the ‘steamy’ parts where soo often it got a bit boring and I’d skim read through them, mostly reading the dialogue so I didn’t miss anything important. The movies should be good!

    At the beginning of the summer I read Tuesdays With Morrie. That was a tear-jerker! Now I’m a few chapters into The Five People You Meet In Heaven. It’s good so far. Have you read either one? I’ve also slowly been working my way through The Children of Men. The other night I noticed the movie is on Netflix. I’ll have to watch it once I’m done.

    Have you started Bel-Ami? The previews for the movie looked good, but I noticed it wasn’t playing here in Calgary. Unless that’s changed from the last time I checked.

    Also, I just read your Folk Fest post – HOW FUN!!! And the weather was great. =)
