This summer has been great for reading. And by great, I mean I’ve quit almost every book I’ve started for one reason or another. So I guess I don’t exactly mean great. I mean sucky.
But I’ve been bored.
Or the writing is bad.
Or the main character is in London in one scene and Texas in the next and only a few hours have gone by and I’m no genius but I don’t think this is possible. Though I really can’t begrudge any authors out there for this kind of oversight because I am notorious for giving my characters green eyes and brown eyes and blue eyes and then somehow I’ve decided they’re blind after all that seeing I described two scenes back.
I’m not kidding. Thank God for editors.
Anyway, this summer has been less than stellar for reading, but I have managed to find some good stuff among the slush. Thought I’d share them with you now. Maybe my finding will spare you a few moments of heartbreak caused by wasting money on really crappy material.
Here’s the good in no particular order. Click on the links to read the descriptions. I didn’t provide links for the bad ones.
- Open Road Summer by Emery Lloyd
- Infinity + One by Amy Harmon
- A Cliché Christmas by Nicole Deese (pre-order here. I was lucky enough to get an advance read)
- The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
- Oath of the Brotherhood by C.E. Laureano
- Flat Out Celeste by Jessica Park
And that’s it. Six weeks of summer, six books to show for it. But all six are great, so whip out your credit cards and order them if you’re a reader like me. I’ve got a hundred more on my Kindle to wade through and a half dozen on my list to buy this week. I’ll keep you posted on the good ones!
