Summer ends officially this weekend. Of course, I’m still running to the beach every chance I get. We might even take Dino this weekend for a little swim. He hasn’t been since last year so he’s about due for a beach day. I love to take him, though I have to admit he’s a handful. He gets so excited by all the smells and sights and the water that he forgets all the training we’ve put him through– which means I spend the entire trip monitoring his every move.
And what does that mean for a Beach Reader? No reading. Absolutely none. But I’ll accept my fate and enjoy my dog’s exuberant joy.
When I’m at the beach I read like a fiend. I’m a firm believer the at the Kindle was the most brilliant invention. Any way I can access my library and buy more books while enjoying the beach works for me.
This summer I read the entire Night Huntress Series by Jeanine Frost, including Mencheres’s story. Books two and four were my favorites. And thank God I knew there were more books after book one. As a true romance fan my heart was just about ripped out of my chest with book one!
It’s the first book in the Protector’s Series and I loved it.
The series is fantastic. I also read Agnes Jayne’s The Problem with Power, another great story and the first in another series. I love series. However, I’m a bit of an obsessive-compulsive reader. If I start I book I, I have to finish it- fast. I devour it. Then, if it’s part of a series, I’m off to the next book like a junkie.
They say knowing your peculiarities is half the battle!
I’m currently reading Alexandra Ivy’s Darkness Unleashed. I love Jagr, but then what’s not to love about a vampire hero?
So, what did you read this summer? What was your favorite book and why?
