Summer Reading

Photo credit:, johnnyberg

I'm not sure who coined the term "Beach Read" or "Summer Reading" but it helped create the image that it's summer, time to read.

Here's my short list for the summer:

The Secret Life of Bees

Brother Odd

All the Numbers

The Blue Sword

What do you guys plan on reading this summer? Or, if you have a novel releasing this summer, tell us about it.


  1. Here's my list - The Dead Whisper On, by T. L. Hines, Your Best You by Bonnie Grove, Quaker Summer by Lisa Samson, and Stephen Lawhead's Robin Hood series. That'll keep me going in between writing my sequel to One Smooth Stone. :)

  2. A random few from my MG/YA list ... though some don't come out until the fall ...

    The Reluctant Heiress, by Eva Ibbotson
    Strawberry Hill, by Mary Ann Hoberman
    Black Ships, by Jo Graham
    The Amaranth Enchantment, by Julie Berry
    Pretty Monsters, by Kelly Link
    The Forest of Hands and Teeth, by Carrie Ryan
    The Miles Between, by Mary E. Pearson
    The Locked Garden, by Gloria Whelan
    A Season of Gifts, by Richard Peck
    Eyes Like Stars, by Lisa Mantchev
    When You Reach Me, by Rebecca Stead
    Leaving the Bellweathers, by Kristin Clark Venuti
    Candor, by Pam Bachorz
    Silent on the Moor, by Deanna Raybourn

  3. I'm reading Anna Quindlen right now!
