Well, it wasn't the best day yesterday, so I needed some family time last night. That means I didn't finish my book.
School let out here on Wednesday. So, for kids it's the start of summer vacation. How many of us think of summer as starting on Monday? So, I have a topic for today. What books are you looking forward to reading this summer? Here are four at the top of my reading list.
Chris Grabenstein, author of the Ceepak mysteries, takes us into an unusual library in his juvenile book, Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library. Some of the staff at the library are even using Chris' game this summer. When the world's most famous game maker designed a town's library, he sends out special invitations for a lock-in. But, getting in is the easy part. Grabenstein's puzzler makes it harder to get out. (June release)
And, then there are the two August mysteries I'm waiting to read. They're both written by Canadian authors, and set in Canada. Vicki Delany's A Cold White Sun is the latest Constable Molly Smith mystery. When a middle-aged teacher is gunned down on a hiking trail in Trafalgar, British Columbia, Sergeant John Winters calls on Molly to assist with the investigation. However, he's bothered by the thought that there may be another murder.
There are so many other books for summer reading, but those four top my TBR pile. (It looks like a blue season, doesn't it?) What books are you planning to read this summer?
