a light and breezy summer post by Debra E. Marvin (meaning I just threw this together)
Oh Summer! How we love you in a unhealthy relationship type of way!
Summer means lazy days, time to play, outdoor fun, special memories. Right? Well at least that's the hope we have that's formed from childhood. Summer vacation lasted for months!
Frankly I find summer to be the busiest, least relaxing season. More yard work, more company, more events and obligations, more busyness and for me a lot less time to write, read, and catch movies. (I miss my winter weekends most of all!) And did I mention it was 87 inside my house most of yesterday? Ugh!
A whole marketing trend is the famous "summer reads"... or 'what will you take to the beach?' I often wonder just how few of us actually read more in summer, or sit on that beach with the latest bestseller!

But let's put aside reality (this is a fiction post after all) and pretend that you have had more time than usual to read. What's been your favorite book this summer and what's next on your TBR pile (or, what book do you really want to get that you don't have?)
I really enjoyed CHAMELEON by Jillian Kent, currently reading CULLODEN SPIRIT by my crit partner Anita Davidson, and despite too many books on my Kindle and a super sized stack of paper in my TBR pile, I'm hoping to pick up VEIL OF PEARLS by MaryLu Tyndal.
Oh, and I just finished 12 chapters of an Inky manuscript that you are all going to love when it gets published!
so... whatcha reading?
