  3. I am so excited to read High As the Heavens by Kate Breslin. I love her stories! I am already your newsletter subscriber. :) Your comment to Gail makes me laugh - that is exactly what I do when we go camping. I sit at the campfire all day long reading and drinking my lattes. :) I'm quite proud of that.

  4. It's impossible for me to pick just one!

    I finished reading High as the Heavens and moved on to Jane of Austin by Hillary Manton Lodge. Jeanne's debut novel is waiting for me (it was an audiobook slurge) in the audible app on my phone. Then, fingers crossed, the library will email to let me know they've granted my request for a paperback copy of Kara Isaac's latest.

    I take summer reading very seriously. :)
