Today is day ten in the count down until school ends. Nine more days until I am free to do as I please. One thing that I’m really looking forward to is having more time to read.
I made a trip to Sam’s the other day to buy supplies for the retirement party that I’m hosting this afternoon. (Please cross your fingers for good weather for me.) While I was there, I couldn’t resist buying two books for my summer reading pleasure.
Dorothea Benton Frank has been one of my favorite summer reading authors for a long time now. I think I’ve read nearly every book that she’s written. I fell in love with the Low Country of South Carolina after reading DBF’s books and it didn’t disappoint when I finally visited in person. I’ll be sitting poolside with this book before I know it.
Another favorite author is Elin Hilderbrand. Lucky for me, I have several of her books left to read. I wanted to read this last summer but never did, then school started and I forgot all about it.
Michael Lee West of Designs by Gollum was kind enough to give away multiple copies of her new book, Gone With a Handsomer Man, and I was a lucky winner. I’m currently reading this book and am quite enjoying it. I’m not far enough into it to tell you much about it, but my friend Michelle of Southern Somedays reviewed it not long ago and you can read her review here, her review of Low Country Summer here, and her review of The Island here. I’ve pretty much figured out that if Michelle likes a book, I’m going to like it as well.
What’s on your reading list for summer?
