Summer Reading Extravaganza Day One

Since I'm not actually going to be going to the beach this summer, but will be going to work I'm going to talk about a few of the things I plan to take along for my daily bus rides to work this summer!

David Sedaris's, When You Are Englufed In Flames looks to be a promising one. I've enjoyed what I have read of his previously. It will definitely wake me up with a good laugh in the morning. Plus I got to meet him about a week ago!

Leah Haye's all scratchboard graphic novel, Funeral of the Heart promises to be a creepy and quirky read.


Audrey, Wait! By Robin Benway is one of the most talked about new young adult books from this spring. And it has a pretty fantastic cover. It's the story of a girl who's ex-boyfriend writes a hit song about her and she can't get away from the limelight. I think? I haven't read it!

What can't you wait to read this summer?

  1. I am not going to the beach this summer either. As close as I'll be getting is a lawn chair and a sprinkler. :)

  2. Hehe! I prefer being indoors mostly, so I'll be reading in my bed. I need a good chair, but there's no where to put one!

  3. You got to meet David Sedaris? The closest I get is listening to his audiobooks. :) I want to read When You Are Engulfed in Flames, too. Looking forward to your review!
