Summertime and the Reading is Easy

It's hard to believe that this time next year, people will be able to buy a physical copy (or ebook) of my book, stick it in their beach bags, lay it on their towels, and, yannow, read it. I've had some time to get used to the idea. Over the past few months, I've done the revisions and I'm working on the copyedits right now. But most days I'm just like, IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING?

That's one of the reasons I haven't posted anything lately. I've been so confused about what to do with this space. I'm really paranoid about coming across as a braggy-bragster-bragpants about the whole publishing thing, and lately it's pretty much all my brain has room for.

But today, my brain is also pondering summer books!

Last year, I read Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard, which I really enjoyed and felt it an appropriate beach read for the travel-y aspect, as I was, in fact, also traveling. And soon I plan to read How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True by Sarah Strohmeyer. It sounds absolutely adorable, and it has one of the funniest openers I've seen. A summer internship at a Disney-like theme park? YES PLEASE.   

What's on your reading list this summer? What are some past favorites?

  3. I guess i've never broken up my reading by season (well, for the most part. I do tend to reread books in the winter).
    I've read 38 books so far this year and topping my list so far is Stupid Fast by Geoff Herbach. LOVED that book hard

    1. 38 books?!?!?! WHOA!! That's more than I've read the past two years combined! I'm such a slow reader. Not like, slow with the sentences, just having time to sit down and get to it.

  5. I love Sarah Strohmeyer too, and have not read that book!

    I downloaded so many free Kindle books that I feel obligated to read them this summer.

    How's your mom?
