You have your tickets.
You have your swimsuit. You’ve pored over every vacation guide available and you’re about to get outta Dodge for a few days.
You don’t get much of it, so you plan your vacations carefully. So why not carefully plan on the books you want to take with you to the beach, the cabin, Grandma’s house, or wherever you’re going to spend your summer getaway?
Make room in your suitcase for these:
Okay, yes, May’s almost over but Memorial Day is the Official Kick-Off to Summer, so why not tuck Killer Instinct by Joseph Finder in your beach bag? Serious readers might enjoy House of War: The Pentagon and the Disastrous Rise of American Power by James Carroll. Or how about At Risk by Patricia Cornwell or Queen of Babble by Meg Cabot or On, Off by Colleen McCullough? And when Memorial Day is over, you still have The Husband by Dean Koontz, Killer Dreams by Iris Johansen, The Cold Moon by Jeffrey Deaver, Telegraph Days by Larry McMurtry, Thriller: Stories To Keep You Up All Night by Edited by James Patterson, and Dark Side of the Moon by Sherrilyn Kenyon to kick your summer off!
What’s better than spending a lazy summer Saturday with a book in your lap? Not much, especially when you have Captive of My Desires by Johanna Lindsey to look forward to spending it with. Not into romance? Then try The Book of the Dead by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, The Saboteurs: A Men at War Novel by W.E.B. Griffin or Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven by Fannie Flagg. In mid-June, you’ll find Terrorist by John Updike, Blue Screen by Robert B. Parker and Baby Proof by Emily Griffin. Then, to round out your first month of summertime reading, look for Twelve Sharp by Janet Evanovich, Coming Out by Danielle Steel, The Traitor by Stephen Coonts, and Danse Macabre by Laurell K. Hamilton. You’re wishing you had more vacation time, aren’t you?http://www.ourweekly.com/
