July is probably the busiest month for many of our writers, with vacations planned and children home for the summer. As such, our site has been a little quieter, but we’ve still had some great reviews to share with our readers, as well as the continuance of our summer reading lists! To spice things up, we invited some of our favourite authors to share their lists with us. We also managed to sneak in a couple of fantastic interviews.
Summer Reading Lists
Danyelle has a whole bunch of fantasy and sci-fi titles on her list this year, including some great classics.
Beth‘s list is more eclectic, but full of some gorgeous covers. Even if you don’t read the same genres as her, it’s worth perusing this list just to swoon and drool over the images!
Heather Day Gilbert writes for several genres, so it seems appropriate that her list isn’t limited to one. Like classics, contemporaries and historical fiction? Then you’ll like this list!
Rachel‘s list is full of romance, including several books that have been languishing on her to-read pile for far too long.
Melissa is a big fan of suspense and speculative fiction, and her list contains some great upcoming releases that you won’t want to miss!
Tosca Lee shares several of her upcoming reads, including a few she’s reading for endorsements. We can’t wait to hear what she thinks of them!
Lori Benton‘s list is pretty varied, ranging from contemporary romance to dystopian YA. There’s definitely something for everyone here!
Erin Healy‘s admits that she struggles to choose books to read during her limited recreational hours (don’t we all?), but we’re glad she’s taken the time to share her choices with us.
Sara‘s primary love is historical romance, so it’s no surprise that her summer reading list contains several titles from this genre!
