Summertime and the reading is easy…

summerreadingThis Friday is the 21st of June, and you know what that means? Summer will officially be here! While this year’s spring was a bit of a non-starter I, for one, am thrilled to see signs of summer on their way. Flowers in bloom, fruits starting to grow on the trees, and longer nights! The last thing in particular is one of my favourite parts of the season. Up here in Alberta we have beautifully long nights throughout the whole summer that are absolutely PERFECT for curling up on a deckchair and reading the night away.

There’s something about lazy summer days that just make reading the perfect activity to while away the hours. How can you stay cooped upside watching reruns when there’s glorious weather and great books to be enjoyed outdoors? I’ve already started scribbling out my wish list for summer reads.

I know a lot of you will be in the same frame of mind, and I’m curious to know what  you’ve got lined up for your deck reading? What genre suits your summer mood?
