Summer "Beach Book" Preview, Part I

I usually wait until Spring Break to post this each year, but a) it's freezing here right now and I think we all need some warming up and b) there are so many books from favorite authors coming out that I just can't wait any longer!

So...without further ado, here are 5 of 10 summer reads I'm dying to get my hands on...don't the covers just make you long to be HOT??

Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand

Kindred Spirits by Sarah Strohmeyer

Joy for Beginners by Erica Bauermeister

Heat Wave by Nancy Thayer

Summer in the South by Cathy Holton

More to come!!


  1. This makes me so happy! Summer and these authors go hand in hand. Very excited to see a new book by Erica Bauermeister - loved The School of Essential Ingredients.

    Hope your area warms up soon - I'm up north so we're supposed to be freezing and under a lot of snow - and we are.

  2. Yay, can't wait for the new Thayer and Bolton books! Thanks for posting. Have a good weekend.

  3. These do look good. I'm excited about the Thayer book. Yea!

  4. I'm ready for the hot weather too! These titles sound perfect for those hot days of summer. I'm really looking forward to Erica Bauermeister's and Sarah Strohmeyer's books.

  5. Thanks for the great list Jill -- all this snow makes me anxious! Looking forward to Erica B's new book.

  6. Ooh. I love Erin Hilderbrand! Summer in the South sounds good too. You're right. The sooner we can get something to warm us up and bring on good thoughts of summer days, the better.These are new to me. I'll be adding them to my TBR list. Thanks.

  7. OMG...great minds think alike, I picked the same book as you...LOL

  8. These titles make me long for long, hot, lazy summer afternoons! Wish I could be sunning myself by the river with one of these books right about now.
