One of my favorite things about summer is having time to read for pleasure. During the school year I rarely have the energy at night to read anything other than a magazine. A few weeks ago I did a summer reading post highlighting a few books that I was looking forward to reading: The Island by Elin Hilderbrand; Lowcountry Summer by Dorothea Benton Frank; and Gone With a Handsomer Man by Michael Lee West.
I plowed through Lowcountry Summer and Gone with a Handsomer Man and then discovered the Pretty Little Liars Series. I’ve been averaging almost one a day of these books and am on the last one. Yes, I’m 42 years old and love these books geared to teens.
Have you seen the show on ABC Family? I started watching it this spring after my sister- in-law told me about it. I hadn’t read the books then and was pretty confused about the plot. Now that I’ve almost finished book eight, I understand the show and will definitely set my DVR to record it.
As much as I enjoyed these eight books, I’m ready for an adult book. Next will be The Island and after that Holly Blues by Susan Wittig Albert. Holly Blues is a mystery set in Texas where the main character, China Bales, runs an herb shop and is constantly investigating a murder.
