It’s Officially Summer! What are You Reading ?
Now that the fireworks of the 4th are over, it feels like summer has officially begun. People have set off on their vacations, schools are out, and roads, rails, and airports heading towards the mountains, beaches, and other places to play and restore your soul are full. Along with the normal list of sunscreen, casual clothes and perhaps swimwear, we normally carry along our books to read. It used to be a bag of paperbacks, with the occasional hardback if it was the latest release (yes, I am dating myself). Now it’s our eReader, our Kindles and Nooks, our IPads or Phones with whatever book app you might be using like iGoogle or iApple. So many ways of taking our books along these days.
Of course, we might want to lie in the sun and listen to our stories! Again, there are more apps there to choose from these days. And so many great narrators. I have my favorites. Do you? right now I’m making my way through Morgan Brice’s Witchbane stories on audio featuring the excellent Kale Williams as the narrator. I can’t wait to work my way through each and every one. There’s so much to be said to be lying back and letting a story flow over you while the sun relaxes you! Ok, back to the blog! lol
Or any combination of eBook or audio. That works! And that are great stories out there right now. If you are a fan of m/m hockey romances, then you might know that the wonderful Harrisburg Railers series by RJ Scott and VL Locey has just released its final story in Save the Date. Yep, done. Don’t know the series? It makes great summer reading, all nine stories. And a new series (connected by the son of one of the main characters) will start later on towards the end of the summer. I myself intend to read some of those hockey stories I never got to on our M/M Hockey Romance list found here. Especially those of Jeff Adams and Samantha Wayland! Turns out my boys of summer play hockey! lol
I found out that Mell Eight has two new stories out over at Less Than Three Press I have to go check out and Josh Lanyon also has two new novels I plan on reading. Heidi Cullinan has a trilogy I’m just finishing and and and….yes, it is truly summer.
What books are on your list to read? What are you reading now? And how are you reading them?
Let us know…..
