If you are anything like me, you are looking forward to some happy hours on the beach with a strawberry margarita and a good book as soon as the sun reappears.
I just finished reading Dead Ever After, the final installment of the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris and I got inspired to create a summer reading list. So is Sookie still with Eric or has she moved on? Oh, I am such a tease. You’ll have to read it yourself to find out. And OMG did you know there is a new Lauren Weisberger sequel to The Devil Wears Prada! I just found out and I need to get to the Kobo store asap! Here’s my complete summer reading list to keep you busy this summer:
