Sunday Salon - Summer Reading

New York is sizzling with humidity and I spent my day relaxing with the a/c on high and doing my favorite thing - reading. I'm finishing up Elin Hilderbrand's "The Beach Club". I love to read books with a beach/summer theme during these months. I don't know why, I just do :) Hilderbrand is quickly becoming a favorite author of mine. This one is really good, although it took me some time to get into it. I should be done tonight and will have review in a day or two. This week I also finished "Naughty Neighbor" by Janet Evanovich and posted my review already. I'm not really sure what my next book will be, but I did start to listen to the audio version of James Patterson's "Along Came A Spider". I'll only be listening on my way to and from work, but already I'm hooked on his Alex Cross character.

I'm busy trying to work my way through the reading challenges I have left and I'm also contemplating hosting another challenge. I looked for one that is strictly for the romantic suspense genre (a favorite of mine), but didn't see anything. So, I'm thinking of doing that. I know, I know...why do I need more challenges? To help me get through my ever-growing TBR, of course :)

Hope you all have a great Sunday and a great week!

  1. A lolcat a week makes me a happy gal ;)

  2. Sounds like a good day to me! I'm failing at all my reading challenges but that's not really a surprise. =)

  3. I'm the same way: summer themes (only in summer). Holiday/winter themes (only in winter) LOL Have you read Nantucket Night by Hildernrand; that was a favorite for me.

    Love kitty with the margarita.

    hot and sticky here too; thank goodness for ac.

  4. Blodeuedd - I love the LOLcats too!

    Meghan - There are still alot of reading challenges that I won't be able to complete, but that's okay. I'm still having fun :)

    Naida - Thanks - When it's this hot, I just love sitting in the a/c and reading. LOL

    Diane - Yes, I did read Nantucket Nights. That's the one that first hooked me on Hilderbrand. Now, I'm reading everything.

  5. Oddly enough, summer is when I want to read about Antarctica and the like. What can I say? I'm an odd duck. But perhaps I'm trying to escape the sweltering heat and humidity here in the sunny south.

  6. Whatever helps to escape the heat can't be bad :)

  7. I joined some challenges as a way to get through my tbr, but I ended up adding to my tbr at a faster rate.
    Cute pic.

  8. I definitely know what you mean, Jenny :)
