I love summer reading.
Sitting on the beach, under a favorite tree or in a hammock, escaping into a book is one of my favorite summer treats.
But it’s tough to pick new books sometimes. Word-of-mouth is my usual plan of attack. Or book lists on the internet. Or wander around the bookstore to see what looks interesting.
I’m in need of a summer read right now. I finally broke down and read The Hunger Games (and will probably pick up the sequels) but I want something a little meatier, something good.
