Though we know it’s not quite summer, here in the midwest it’s been feeling a lot like summer lately.
And after a particularly cold and awful winter, we are more than ready to break out the lawn chairs, lemonade, and, sandals.
As the longer days of summer approach, we’ve also been looking forward to some time to sit in the shade and read.
We’re seeing summer reading recommendations pop up in our social media feeds and emails. Harper’s Bazaar has a list of the 17 Best Summer Reads 2019 and Publisher’s Weekly offers the Best Books of Summer 2019 list. And the lists go on from Barnes and Noble’s Summer Reading List to the independent bookstore’s Indie Next Summer 2019 Reading Group Recommendations.
And while many of those books sound like great reads, we know with everything else going on that we’re not going to get to as many books as we’d like this summer, so we’re going to have to prioritize. Maybe you can help us with that. We’d love to hear your recommendations.
What’s on the top of your reading list for this summer?
Sparkle Abbey is actually two people, Mary Lee Woods aka Mary Lee Ashford and Anita Carter, who write the national best-selling Pampered Pets cozy mystery series. They are friends as well as neighbors so they often get together and plot ways to commit murder. (But don’t tell the neighbors.) They love to hear from readers and can be found on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, their favorite social media sites.
Their most recent book is The Dogfather, the tenth book in the Pampered Pets series.
