Anyway...here are some series to check out this summer:
- House of Night series by P.C Cast and Kristin Cast- Still liking these. Quite teen-y, but a good story and the plot is dispersed across the series such that you do get sucked into reading each subsequent book. Good summer reading.
- Women of the Underworld by Kelley Armstrong- I have only read Bitten so far, but I have heard great things about the rest of the series. If you like Charlaine Harris, you will like this, though the writing is not that similar. These books just have "that feel" of good characters and a series of plot lines that can sustain an extended series.
- Lily Bard series by Charlaine Harris- Uses her signature story telling voice with murder mysteries. I have read the first two and can't wait for my hold on the third to arrive.
- Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater- One of our wonderful librarians turned me on to this trilogy and it is great. Written for young adults, but tackles some pretty serious topics via the cycle of our dear heroes. If you only read one of my recommended series, read this one.
What is anyone else reading? The summer stretches long ahead and I could use some recommendations to help my sanity while we spend the hot moths transitioning out of the Navy. Beach reading, serious stuff...anything will do!
