  1. I love to read. I read all kinds of genre. Summer reading reminds me of the library summer reading programs growing up. 😍

    1. Right?!?! I think summer reading was extra delicious when we were kids because of all that extra time we had without school concerns and we had the time to daydream and wonder. So many minutes are just jam-packed at the other times of the year.

    1. My favorite genres are thrillers, romantic suspense, and romance.Thanks for the chance, both books above sound great!

  2. I read all year long as Reading is my getaway and passion! I love reading all genres, except Science Fiction, Erotica! Thanks for the chance to win books!

    1. Rebeccca, me too! I read constantly. Even when I had newborns, if I had just five minutes before I went to sleep to read, it was MY TIME:-). I’ve always treasured it!

  3. The best book I read this Summer was Mrs. Everything by Jennifer Weiner! What isn’t on my tbr pile? LOL. I enjoy a lot of genres including popular fiction, mysteries, cozy mysteries and some chick lit.

  4. I read every single chance that I can! Many times you’ll find both my 12 year old daughter and I curled up on the couch reading a book together. I love the fact that she shares my love for reading. Thank you for the giveaway!

  5. Free books! (I’m not entering since I’m one of the Missdemeanors. I just wanted to shout free books!) This summer, I plan to read at least one novel outside my usual genre. I’m going to take a look at the world beyond crine fiction and see what’s out there

    1. I read all year round and almost all genres. Not much on horror , supernatural or real creepy.
      Thanks for chance to win.

  6. Hi, I love to read no matter the season. I love reading different genres as long as it is a good book. 🙂 These books sound like good reads and the covers are nice also. I love to read fiction or non fiction forensic books. I also like romance books, be it history or contemporary, I also like self help books and inspirational stories. Thank you for the chance. God Bless you all.

  7. Books are my constant companions. I live to read. Yes, that’s not a typo, even though I do love to read!

  8. I for sure have been reading like crazy this summer and so far my favorite book has been Every Thing You Are by Kerry Anne King. I have some TBR but on the top is Live a Little by Howard Jacobson. I enjoy thrillers, historical fiction.

  9. I’m interested in reading something new! All these books look interesting. I love romance, mystery, and fiction to name a few.

  10. I’ve always loved to read but as a teacher reading was mostly limited to vacations. I just retired, so bring on the books!My favorite genres tend to be (but not limited to) medical and true crime nonfiction, thrillers/suspense, and historical fiction. Lately I’ve been reading a lot of contemporary fiction as well.Favorite books this summer include Her Daughter’s Mother by Daniela Petrova and The Gifted School by Bruce Holsinger.

  11. I love to read. Mysteries, suspense thrillers, psychological thrillers and some light chick-lit type reading thrown in as well.

  12. Goodness, I’m a bit eclectic when it comes to reading. I would have said I read everything but memoirs, but in the last month I read Shrill and Educated. Both amazing reads and both opened my eyes and heart in different ways. When I travel, I like to have everything from rather dense non-fiction, classics I haven’t read yet, suspense (always), and “brain candy” (books that are sheer entertainment).

  13. This sounds like a fantastic group. I live to read. Just finished Park Avenue Summer and Dollface by Renee Rosen. Going to see Fiona Davis on Wednesday (The Chelsea Girls).

  14. I love reading and reviewing. I read all genre but Horror books PNR are my 2 favorite. Thanks for a chance.

  15. Historical fiction is my favorite genre, but, I read across many genres. I also like crime/mystery/legal, thrillers, contemporary fiction, some non-fiction/memoirs. I recently finished Meet in Monaco, which I’d had pre-ordered for months before it’s release, and loved it!

  16. Summer reading makes me think of summers as a Kid, no school, unlimited reading time…trips to the library used book sales…late nights reading., reading on the beach…Great choices on your list.

  17. Ok third attempt, FB, nor Google let me post…Summer reading brings memories of unlimited reading time, no getting up for school. Reading on the beach, library used book sales, getting to read whatever sounds good, no required book list…

    1. You did it!!!! Woo!!!! Thanks, Robin! Yeah..such fun unlimited memories, right? I love that. When we’re on vacation, I usually try to get my family to stop looking at clocks. For that same reason. We eat when we’re hungry, sleep when we’re tired, read all the time;-).

  18. I love to read! It has become my hobby since I retired. My favorite genres are romantic suspense, mysteries, thrillers and Christian fiction. I don’t like sci-Fi, fantasy or anything considered erotic.

  19. I have a special place in my heart for summer reading. I first fell in love with reading in the summer of 1966. I was 13 and we had just moved. I didn’t know a soul, and was bored senseless. My mom dragged me to Levine’s Stationery Store and bought me “Tom Sawyer”. I read it all the next day. Time flew. The following summer was my first with assigned reading (for my 1st year in high school). First on the list was “Death Be Not Proud”, the first book that made me cry. Next was “The Old Man And the Sea” (second book that…). I’ve been hooked ever since. Multiple genres, but mostly mysteries and historical novels these days.

  20. Reading keeps my mind sharp and imagination active! It’s always fun to be in a giveaway. Shared!

  21. Reading is my life!! I read every day. This is a very generous giveaway. Thanks so much for the chance!
