Put me just about anywhere with a good book and I’ll forget where I am…if the book is a good one, of course! Summer is coming up and I’m getting my list together for books I want to lose myself in. It’s such a great feeling to be able to kick up your feet and relax. At the cottage swinging in a hammock, on the beach under an umbrella or even on the boat while the guys fish, these are all spots I’ve spent hours reading. Pure bliss.
I’ve been asked for recommendations on good summer reads and have come up with this list of 25 books you should read this summer. Most of them are books I’ve read from summers past. A couple of them are on my personal summer reading list this year and have heard good things about them.
