Summer Readin' and the Livin' is Easy

Nothing says summertime to me like a glass of lemonade, a reclining chair set up outside in a gentle breeze and a good, easy reading book. What about you? I know you may be thinking summer, it's July already! Well around San Francisco summer seems to be from July through September and we all know that famous quote from Mark Twain where he said, 'The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Fransico' so bear with me on my late post!

So there are lots of books piling up on my shelves and some of them look like they would really fit this bill! Here's a look at what I am hoping to read this summer. Let me know what you are looking forward to read this summer too!

  1. I want to read both Juliet Naked and The Sugar Queen. They both seem great summer reads. Of course, I don't own either, so I'll have to wait and see if I will be able to read them this summer.

  2. I adored My life in France.
    I want to read The Postmistress too and Roses...but they aren't high on my priority list. maybe I'll let you read them and you can report back! :)

  3. I want to read My Life in France. This summer I will be reading fun Witchy type books this month and fun Werewolf books next month. Escapism at it's fullest!

  4. You have a great list there - I am a big fan of Nick Hornby so I will be looking forward to your review of that one!

  5. Roses is good to get lost in. I really want to read My Life in France and suspect it would be good any time of the year.

  7. Hm...these all sound interesting, and I'd really like to read The Postmistress. However, my current haul still checked out of the library are begging to be read first. Hope your summer is just right for you (personally, I need the heat early and often :)

  9. Those are very summery reads indeed! Haven't read any of them but really interested in Juliet, Naked. Also, I've seen copies of The Sugar Queen at a discount, but not sure if I should.. would love to hear your thoughts.

  11. One of my absolute favorite authors is Sarah Addison Allen! You will love her writing, I'm sure. She almost makes you want to literally devour the book, just love it! Enjoy!
