Many a time I have invited friends to the pool only to sit in the lounge chair and chat, noticing my friends uncomfortable glances toward their flailing children in the pool. Many a time I've wanted to say, feel free to swim with your kids. I just want to sit here and read.
Rude, I know.
I know other moms think I'm rude and anti-social, but really, when it comes to reading, I don't have much time to do it, and when you love it like I do, I am dying for summer by the pool ALL YEAR LONG. My white porcelain skin needs all the rays it can get and my brain needs some candy. Call me on the phone, email me, come sit on my couch or porch and I'll chat morning until night. Just not by the pool.
Now, that I ruined all my friendships. I'll give you the heads up on my summer reading. :D
I just finished this last week. Great book!!! You must know that I LOVE young adult fiction and this one does not let you down. If you would like to read what I think is an accurate review, go here.
I picked up this next book at the Library today. Shannon Hale has got to be one of, if not my FAVORITE author. I've been a little behind on her books and I have lots of catching up to do. Can't wait to dive into it this evening. My favorite books by her are Goose Girl and Enna Burning. I highly recommend them. I never thought I liked fairytale fantasy books until I read these. Don't ask me why this book jumped off the shelf at Walmart and into my cart. More than anything it it could have been the cute pic on the cover. I've read the first few pages and know this will be a great read for our summer vacation. If you'd like to read a review go here.
Any other summer reading musts???? Please let me know. I'm always up for a great book-- nothing too heavy, I want BRAIN CANDY!!!!
