It's summer, I must be reading...

What’s the best thing about vacation time? Uninterrupted, guilt-free reading!

About now, I’m starting to look at that enormous stack of unread books on my nightstand, on my floor...in my office...the living room...and for the first time in ages, they’re more than a twinkle in my eye. I will read some of these books! Soon!

I’m going to tell you some of the vacation reading I have lined up, and I hope you’ll tell me some of yours.

Three to Get Deadly, by Janet Evanovich – I read some of the later Stephanie Plum novels, but only recently read books one and two. Which means I now need to read book three.

Nature Girl, by Carl Hiaasen—I love his books!

Beauvallet, by Georgette Heyer—it’s not a vacation unless I read a Georgette Heyer. I haven’t read this one before, so I’m looking forward to it, even though it’s not the usual Regency style story, going by the cover blurb.

Mulberry Park, by Judy Duarte—bought this a while back, heard good things, haven’t read it yet.

A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Husseini—I’ve had this a while, but need a decent chunk of time to sit down and read it.

Good at Games, by Jill Mansell—looks like a fun romantic comedy.

Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic—this one will be a re-read, it makes me laugh every time.

Might pick up a new book by Rhonda Pollero. Cindy Kirk has one out I’m wanting to read. I’ll get the latest in this year’s Harlequin NASCAR series (all linked stories, so far all great) and a few Superromances. Might buy a Jan Karon if I see them in the shops—the last one I read in the Mitford series was Out to Canaan, can’t remember which one comes next – hopefully it’ll say in the front of the book... On my wishlist: A new Susan Elizabeth Phillips, but I don’t think there’s one planned.

That ought to keep me busy...but if you think there’s something I must read, tell me! Or just tell me what you plan to read.
