The sun is shinning longer, the temps are getting higher, and kids are almost done with this crazy year of school....... Summer is almost here!!!
I absolutely love reading during the summer months. I think more people find time also for summer reading. Wether you are relaxing poolside, by the beach, reading while you are traveling, or just taking time out of your evening to enjoy a good book.
I always read more during the summer. I think my love and passion for writing and a good book started in high school. I always had good relationships with all my high school ELA teachers. Some of my favorite books when I was younger were Of Mice and Men, Little Women, To Kill A Mockingbird, and The Artist's Way ( the first self help book I ever read way back in the late 90's) I also loved The Nanny Diaries, Prozac Nation, and Valley of The Dolls.
Maybe because I had 3 amazing High School teachers in the ELA department that my love of reading is still holding true to this day.
I have compiled my list of my favorite books in different genre's.
