What I'm Reading

So many books to read, so little time!

Whenever I have a free moment, it’s hard not to fill it with writing. Add in that I’m a dreadfully slow reader, and you have a bad combination for my to-be-read pile. It grows and grows, and I just can’t keep up with it. But there are definitely some books that are living on the top of that pile. This summer, I plan to finally be able to devour a couple of them.

REAWAKENED by Colleen Houck

I adore Colleen—I’m pretty sure she’s one of the kindest, hardest working, and fan-friendly authors I’ve ever met. This book looks absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to dig into it. Thus, it’s at the top of my pile!

THE UGLY DUCHESS by Eloisa James

I love a great romance, especially historical romance. Eloisa James has a fun voice—there’s always a fabulous sense of humor in her writing. I’m also very interested in romances where the main character isn’t particularly stunning in the looks department. Love is deeper than that, and I’m looking forward to reading this one to see how the theme is handled.

A DESPERATE FORTUNE by Susanna Kearsley

It has a gorgeous cover and intriguing premise: Sara Thomas, an amateur codebreaker has been sent to Paris to crack the cipher on a cryptic 300-year-old journal written by Jacobite exile Mary Dundas. As Mary’s tale is revealed, Sara’s story also unravels—so really we get two stories in one.

What are you looking forward to reading this summer? Any beach reads you want to recommend?
