I have always thought summer was the best time to read. All those endless days lounging around on the beach with nothing to do. Well, that’s not my life but if it were, I would spend all those days reading! It is true though that summer does mean a vacation or two and less time shuttling my boys from here to there which translates to perfect opportunities to read. And my to-read pile is getting taller by the day!
So far this summer I’ve read Worth the Weight by Eileen Palma, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple, and The One & Only by Emily Giffin. All great and recommended!
Next up: Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline, The Invention of Wings by Sue Kidd Monk, Your Perfect Life by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, The Secret Life of Violet Grant by Beatriz Williams, and the list goes on…

Have to say my favorite summer read so far is a book I just finished called “Mornings With Mailer”. The author who wrote it, Dwayne Raymond got to work with Norman Mailer in the last 4 years of his life. It’s a wonderful insight into the mans life and an excellent read. I highly recommend it.
My summer reading list is growing by the day. Haha! Some of the books in this giveaway are on the list, but I would like to read the others and possibly discover some new authors.
I’ve read The Secret Life of Violet Grant and loved, loved, loved it! My favorite book of the year (so far).
“The Secret Life of Violet Grant” and “The Vacationeers” are on my list. Plus the last few from Sarah Jio (I’m a bit behind!).
I will be getting Goodnight June soon; so, it could be my first beach read.
I have read The Matchmaker by Elin Hilderbrand and Save The Date by Mary Kay Andrews so far (those were on the beach last week while on vacation in Hilton Head). My list also includes Goodnight June by Sarah Jio and Nantucket Sisters by Nancy Thayer and The Beekeepers Ball by Susan Wiggs. I have 21 books on my summer list, now including all of yours!
I have two favorites so far this summer, Goodnight June by Sarah Jio & Counting By 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan. I’m excited about this awesome giveaway!
China Dolls Lisa See goodnight June Sarah jio.love the books your offering.
I just finished I know why the caged bird sings. It was a great way to start the summer.
So far this summer I’ve read “Your Perfect Life” (fun read!); “We Were Liars” (must read it again!), “Maine” (loved the book but not the ending), and “Shopaholic Ties the Knot” (of course this was also a fun read!) Not sure what’s next but I’m ready for a new book!
