Summer Reads for Rainy Days
Luckily you can always find Summer in books. I did a guest post at Daisy Chain Book Reviews on my favouirte summer reads, I’d love it if you dropped by and told me your summer must reads.

I also decided to join Audrey’s Awesome Awktopus Summer of YA Lit Challenge (mix and match from her ten mini challenges – such a great idea). I absolutely love making lists, especially of books I’m planning to read, although I suck at keeping to them 🙂
Here’s my summer list ~ I can practically feel the sunshine on my face as I read it!
1) Start and Finish a Series ~ The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare.
2) Read THAT book, the one you keep putting off for some reason ~ The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale
3) Read a Summer related book ~ Sixteenth Summer by Michelle Dalton
4) Read a Book published before 2000 ~ A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
5) Read three stand alone book by the same author ~ C K Kelly Martin
6) Buy a book ~ Forever by Maggie Stiefvater
Thanks Audrey, that cheered me up.
Do you like planning your reading, or do you pick a book based on how you feel in the moment?
Aww the weather's not sunny enough here either! Thanks for joining my bizarro challenge, I love your list! Haha, I've been told to read THe Goose Girl SO many times.. I really should do that 🙂 I've heard wonderful things about CK Kelly Martin's books, I'm interested to hear what you think! And are we the ONLY people who haven't read TMI? xD good luck! =D
I think it was the bizarro that hooked me ;D
Apparently on the whole TMI, everyone raves though, so I have super high expectations. Hope it lives up to them
Thanks for doing such a great guest post. I really enjoyed your book choices! 🙂
Leanna ~ Thanks and thanks for having me I always love talking books 🙂
I pretty much wing it. If there's something I really want to read and I don't want to forget, I mark it "to read" on Goodreads. About six months later, I usually notice it.
How fun! I hope you love The Mortal Instruments books! They're some of my favorites.
What a wonderful list. I loved the Mortal Instruments trilogy. And then Clare went ahead and published a fourth! Ahhhh! 🙂
The Goose Girl is also on my shelf. I've only read Hale's The Actor and the Housewife (which I surprisingly loved more than chocolate cake). I've yet to read her younger books.
