Every summer I get that Grease the movie song stuck in my head. Summer loving have me a blast...summer loving happened so fast. The dog days of summer are finally here! Hopefully, much of our precious summer time will be well spent by the pool or on a sandy beach chilling out with the perfect book.
You might be asking yourself first, 'WHAT do I read?' or 'What am I in the mood for?' I tend to get these questions from friends and family that are excited for summer reading but don't know what to choose or where to begin.
It is because I am in a book club that my friends and family will ask me for help in choosing a novel. Of course, I always mention my book club read and then like a magician, I try to pull out a stash of book titles from my head to recommend.
Which comes to the point, what makes an awesome summer read? Since I love celebrating and selecting my novels based on the time of year and or holidays then that is what I will continue to do. Most people want to read a more fast, modern type of book like Wild, or some want a challenge like the paperweight War and Peace.
Whatever your reading goals maybe for this sizzling season check out my sweet summer book recs that you can take to the beach, on an airplane or just sitting around the backyard pool under a stripped umbrella. With any luck, by the end of your summer, you will be singing to the finish of Grease's Summer Nights...Summer dreams, ripped at the seams. Bu-ut oh, those summer nights!
