I’ve always loved books and series that I could get lost in. The longer, the better. And summer was always the perfect time to indulge in that passion, especially when I was a kid. Back then, my summers were always full of books. Fiction, non-fiction, it didn’t matter. I was one of those kids who had to be kicked outside to play because, usually, the world I was reading about was vastly more entertaining than real life. I was like that most of the rest of the year too, of course, but summer meant more time to read, and fewer interruptions. To this day, certain books and certain summers are inextricably linked in my mind. Rereading them now, can transport me right back to where I was then.
My favorite summer reads have always been the kind of books that are so vivid and descriptive that reading them is like being immersed in a foreign culture. My reading habits really haven't changed much over the years either. If I like something I tend to obsess; I want the whole series now; I want to read everything else the author has out there. I'm sure my parents were very grateful to be able to send mo off to the library to feed my habit!
Summer still seems like the perfect time to get time to get some extra reading in--even without the promise of a long vacation or less interruptions! This summer, my reading plans include finally getting caught up on all the backlists of al lmy fellow Naughty Novelists...at least that's the plan.
What are your summer reading plans? Is there anything in particular you're looking forward to reading this summer? Do you have any memorable summer reads from years past?
There's something magical about the little coast town of Oberon, California—something that transcends explanation and defies description. But living in 'Psychic Central' is not all white light and fairy dust. Anything could happen here and all too often it does. It's a place filled with mystery, intrigue, mysticism and romance and while the location is fictional, the people populating it can seem all-too real.
