It’s time for summer reading!

As some of you may know, I work at my local library, as well as writing. It’s a great job for an author who needs a sideline and especially in the summer.

Summer means the kids are coming and it’s an exhilarating time for everyone associated with the library for that reason. Our local library runs a summer reading club for kids. As part of the club, kids set reading goals and receive prizes for accomplishing their goals. It’s a great way to keep children interested in books and feeling they’ve achieved new heights.

But it doesn’t have to be just for kids. Why not set goals for ourselves this summer? We all need a bit of down time and I’m never more at ease than when I’m curled up with a new book. When we read, it’s our time. Our preferences, our fantasies. Is there anything better than stretching out on a beach or by the pool and cracking the spine of a hot new romance? Or firing it up for the first time on our ereaders, watching it download? I love that anticipation.

What sorts of summer reads do you enjoy? Do you indulge in chick lit? Do you dabble in different genres? Do you refrain from darker, heavier reads and stick to lighter, fun fare?

  1. I’m reading the Thieves series by Lexi Blake. All sorts of supernatural beings are featured: vampires, Angels, fairies, witches, werewolves and various fae. The books are long enough that the reader gets to know the characters well. I’m not looking forward to the completion of the series because I will miss my book friends.
