Disturbing, gritty, edgy, dark, banned, forbidden--yes these are some of my favorite reads, but I'll let you in on a little secret, a guilty pleasure if you will-- I love beach reads. A LOT. Pretty much anything with a horse, a life guard, a camp, camping trip, sailing, lake, cabin, beach, an older boy crush who finally sees you as more than a kid, a summer that changes everything... I rip through these books and can feel the sun on my shoulders and the sand in my toes, and I always fall in love with the boys of summer. So in honor of summer here are some reads I'm looking forward to devouring!
And coming soon--a great new Island Summer series from Jenny O'Connell:
