  • Ooh, some of these look really good. Definitely worth looking into for summer reading.

  • These all look so great. The last two weeks I’ve been reading non stop! I could add a couple of these to my list!

    I miss reading. I think once I became a blogger I stopped and that is sad. I really want to start again.

  • Great picks! I picked up a few books for our road trip this week. Can’t wait to dive into them.

  • What a great list! I especially want to read Dietland and The Wonder Garden.

  • An Ember in the Ashes is recommended all the time to me. It sounds like a great book.

  • I really want to get my hands on James Patterson’s last few books. I haven’t had a lot of reading time lately, so I missed them.
