Summer is coming! Do you know what I like the best about summer and makes me all shivery with excitement? Reading! I tend to have more time to read since I’m not working and the boys are busy splashing in the pool. (Okay, sometimes I’m splashing too!)
Can you guess what I’m doing right now? I’m compiling my summer reading list.
Here’s where I get my list from: 1. My librarian- I love our school librarian. She’s in the KNOW of what’s hot and she knows all of my tastes. Sometimes she even checks books out for me and puts them in my mailbox knowing I’ll like them (I love those days!). And she’s never wrong.
2. Blogs- I read a lot of blogs and if a book gets a good review, I’ll write it down. If a book is repeatedly mentioned, I’ll definitely add it to my list. Check out Presenting Lenore. She’s got great book reviews.
3. My critique buddies. Andrea Mack is doing 100 Book Challenge and commenting on them on her blog, That’s Another Story. It’s a fantastic resource. Check it out!
4. Goodreads - I joined this last year after one of my writing friends kept talking about it. She was right. It’s awesome. I get to see what my friends are reading, what they liked about it and the latest releases. Some of us MiG Writers are on Goodreads.
