Welcome to the Summer Reads Blog Hop, hosted by herding cats & burning soup!

Summer’s in full swing! Come in out of the heat and check out our favorite Summer Reads! Each blog will feature their favorites and a giveaway so visit them all! Plus there’s a Grand Prize giveaway happening too!

So what books are you diving into at the beach (or wherever you relax) this summer? I’m in the middle of the latest book in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander saga, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood. It’s 800+ pages of awesomeness, and totally makes the world go away.

  1. I´ve got a TBR list a mile long, I blame that lovely 1click on Amazon, =) so I´ve got no trouble finding a new read. As long as there´s a HEA, an Alpha male and smutty fluff, I´ll read it. =)
    Thanks for the giveaway & Happy Thursday!

  2. I have a bunch of books that I’ve downloaded onto my kindle that I haven’t had time to read yet so I know those are the ones I’ll be reading 🙂

  3. no beach for me but i plan to read the second in the guild hunrter series by nalini singh and the witch song by amber argyle

So many books on my list this summer, but I’m mainly trying to catch up on UF series that I started awhile ago like Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid series, Jenn Bennett’s Arcadia Bell series (unfortunately the series is now finished), and Eileen Wilks’ World of the Lupi series.

  21. I don’t read books on the beach but if I did I would be reading YA fantasy like Shadow and Bone and Finnikin of the Rock. Thank you for the giveaway, enjoy your day. 🙂

  22. I want to bring Jill Shalvis’ newest book, Then Came You, from her Animal Magnetism series to read.
