This morning I listened to War’s classic hit “Summer,” a slow-paced sound to accompany the lazy days of the season. I’m especially happy that summer is almost here. After a spring season of gray skies, I look forward to sunny mornings, warm afternoons, walks along the beach, and…summer reads. I got off to an early start by reading A.J. Finn’s fabulous thriller, The Woman in the Window, over the Memorial Day weekend. It’s an entertaining page-turner, which took me only hours to read.
I’m in the habit of jotting down titles of books that are well-reviewed and peak my interest. I’ll refer to my list of titles when searching library catalogs online to see what’s available for checkout. However, if it’s a new summer title, chances are I’ll have to place a reserve, and if it’s a very popular title, my reserve might not get filled until summer is over! Instead, what I will do to get my hands on a good book is browse the shelves of my local library.
Here are other books I’ve read recently that would be good summer reads:
Two Girls Down (thriller) by Louisa Luna
The Wedding Date (romance) by Jasmine Guillory
The Wife and The Ex (mysteries) by Alafair Burke
