The super awesome Amanda (no, I'm not sucking up, it's true) over at Serenity Now is hosting another Dishing It party and this time, I thought I'd join in
I frequently have 2, 3 or even 4 books going at one time, which for some reason drives Mr. HH crazy (he has issues with my reading, I think) and often read at least 2 books a week. If I don't read, I feel like I'm doing something wrong. It feels weird. I am currently reading the following:
Other books I would recommend for summer reading, are:
This book is hilarious and so easy to read as it's all in email/text message format. It's all about love, insecurity and mistaken identities.
No one throws a hissy fit like this girl. The lead character is an interior decorator and antiquer. What could be better? Light, funny read.
If I had to be on a deserted island with 5 books, this would be one of them. It's about what happens when a fat girl decided to lose the weight and how she's treated differently. I love this book.
Okay, I haven't actually read this one yet, but I've read the other 15, so I'm not sure how I could not recommend this one. If you haven't read this series, I highly recommend it. The series is about a completely incompetent female bounty hunter, exploding cars (lots of them), and two very hunky men that she can't decide between. Some books also involve a reformed 'ho,' a cross dressing rock star, a psychotic (but lovable dog), the mob,and her pistol packing grandmother. This is a great series. Don't miss it.
I loved all three of these books. I like series. These are set in the Victorian era and are mystery/romance. Don't be fooled by the covers, they are sophisticated books. Each book has its own story with a secondary storyline that arcs through them all.
I love this series. Love.It. It's a mystery series set in the Regency era (my personal favorite era for lit, probably thanks to Jane Austen) and very well written. What I really find interesting though is that the main character is a man, instead of a woman. A sexy viscount who has a way of finding trouble. To quote the authors site "Think Mr. Darcy with a James Bond edge." These are smart books. The author knows her history and weaves it beautifully into the stories. Each book is a stand alone story with a secondary storyline that arcs through all of them. The most recent book came out in Nov of 09 and I cannot wait for the next one. Write Ms. Harris, write!
So, those are my recommendations for summer reading. I hope you all have time for a few great books this summer. My TBR pile (several from the library, thakyouverymuch) is HUGE. Hurrah for books!
