Beach Reads: What's on my Wishlist this Summer!

Hello summer and hello more time to read! If you're looking for your next book, here's 5 picks I'm placing on my wishlist this summer:

When I heard  the same Judy Blume of my youthful reading adventures now writes books for grown-ups, I was thrilled. While I wondered if I'd find a book entitled, "Are you there, God? It's Me, Menopause", I was joyfully surprised to find this fantastic beach read, Summer Sisters. With themes like a friendship dating to the late 1970's and the setting of Martha's Vineyard, it sounds like the perfect beach read!

While we're in New England, I thought I'd add Nantucket author Elin Hilderbrand's The Rumor into the mix. Hmm. I hear the "rumor" on this book is that it's a page-turner!

I love reading Mary Kay Andrews' books for their wit, humor and strong female lead characters. Beach Town takes the reader to a sleepy town in the panhandle of Florida and looks like an entertaining read from start to finish.


History, romance and a hurricane blend to create a story worth checking out. Set in the 1930's, even the cover image oozes with summer-time nostalgia.

Described as having humor and heart, this story of a family on a two week vacation to the faraway land of Mallorca has my interest piqued. For one thing, where is Mallorca, anyways?

Happy reading!!!
