Now is the time to start all things summer! Right now! So what have you been reading? Have you had ANY time to ready any kind of literary work? If you answered ‘No’ to both questions please provide a valid answer, thanks.
I fell in love with books long, long ago. I remember it was before I could read. I remember one of my aunts bringing me Archie’s comics among others for me to ‘read’. I have a list of books that I would like to read over the summer and I would really like to share it with you. So whether you read books on your kindle/nook, cell phone, laptop or a real live book don’t miss out on the up and coming authors of the this season.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins: If you haven’t already this book is hot and extremely popular. If you’re reading anything this summer this book has to be it. In order to keep the mystique and not spoil it for you, I will use three words to describe it: intrigue, scandalous, and raw.
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr: He is one of the best authors of our time. He created this story with such compassion, based on historical events, the warmth and struggles that the characters go through will make you think closely at how you and our society sees and lives life today. Three words: survival, heart, and shadows.
Dear Emma by Katie Heaney: Looking for something funny and witty? Want to reminisce about college for a little bit? This book is a fast and entertaining read that will have you traveling back in time to your college years. Three words: funny, thoughtful, and laid-back.
The Boleyn King by Laura Andersen: I really like historical fiction and I am so glad I found this new series. It has me hooked. While there are many other books out there with similar titles out there. This storyline is by far the most different. It presents the ‘what-if’s’ of the Henry-Boleyn drama. Three words: betrayal, unexpected, and mystery.
The Art Forger by B.A. Shapiro: If you like art, mystery, and wonder at the idea of someone forging a great work of art this is the book for you. I could not put it down. I liked that this book had you following along the main character and discovering the facts along with her. I also enjoyed the realness that came with the story. I am no art expert but every piece was in place. Three words: seductive, artistic, and intimate.
Keep on reading.
