Summer Reading

Tip of the Day: don't forget today is Tuesday, not Monday.

At my day job, we've been gearing up for our annual library summer reading program. As a result, I keep thinking of all the things I want to read this summer. I've widdled them down to my top 5 (in no particular order):

5.) Prada and Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard:

Out June 11. I'm really looking forward to this book. Both because I love time-travel and Regency England. And I'm always looking for a fish-out-of-water story, especially if it involves romance.

4.) Perfect Fifths by Megan McCafferty

This one is already out, but I haven't read it yet. Word is it's the best in the series. Considering I loved the first four, I'm pumped to read this one.

3.) Don't Judge a Girl By Her Cover by Ally Carter:

Out June 9. I'm very excited about the third installment in the Gallagher Series. She had me at hot boys and spys.

2.) L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad:

Out June 16. How could I not read this book? Who doesn't want to learn all the juicy secrets of a real-life reality star, even if it's fictionalized. Plus, don't you really want to know if she talks about Heidi, Spencer, Brody, or even Justin Bobby? How the writing is? Or figure out if it's co-written?

1.) Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen

Out June 16. I always look forward to Sarah Dessen's novels, but I'm especially excited about this one. Maybe it's the bike on the front cover, the main character's name Auden, or the love-connect of two insomniacs. Regardless, knowing Sarah's other works, this is going to be good!

Yay! Thanks for including PRADA & PREJUDICE.

I'm dying to read the new gallager girls fic (and it comes out the week of Prada & Prejudice AND Ally is going to be signing locally so I get to meet her the day before Prada's release!)

I read ALONG FOR THE RIDE earlier this year, and it's wondeful and very summery, so it's perfect for your list.

No problem Mandy. I'm really looking forward to it!!!!!!! And it's good to hear Along for the Ride was good as well.

Kate Fall said...

Hey, PRADA and ALONG FOR THE RIDE are high on my WANT list too! And also PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES. I think I'll read that novel along with Mandy's. Good times ahead!

Love your list Em!! I want to read these too. I read Prada already and it's AWESOME! And I can't wait to figure out if any real people are in Lauren's book too- lol!
