June In Review

It’s July! We hope that you are all devouring some excellent books this summer. If you need any inspiration, check our our selection of summer reading lists from our very own SOTP reviewers and some of our favourite authors. And as always, if you missed any of last month’s reviews or interviews, all of the links can be found here. Happy reading!


Summer Reading Lists

Rachel‘s summer reading list covers a wide range of genres–classics, historical romance, contemporary fiction, and even a post-apocalyptic Mennonite novel!

Cathy West has a good blend of historical and contemporary fiction on her list, and all of the books have gorgeous covers.

If you’re a fan of general market novels, you’ll love the selection on Heather‘s list. She always comes up with intriguing new titles!

Melissa Tagg freely admits that is was tough to cut her “crazy long” summer reading list down to these five titles.

Beth has a lot of historical fiction on her summer reading list, but she has managed to squeeze some other genres in there too.

Sarah Monzon hasn’t stuck to just new releases for her summer reading list. It’s always fun to pick up something that’s been languishing on our shelves for a while.

Carrie calls her summer reading list a “merely a microscopic drop in the bucket that is my TBR continent”. Can anyone else relate to this feeling?

Becky Wade has included some popular authors on her list, so we’re sure she’s not the only one who will be digging into these titles this summer.
