Yep, it's that time of the year again. Hard to believe winter's gone, spring's a memory and the hot days of summer are staggering toward us!
But the best part of summer??? Summer Books!
Yes, I'm a little prejudiced, I do think my own book, MORE THAN FIENDS
makes for some great summer reading. But....there are more out there!
For example: Nora's got a new one coming out next month! Can't wait for that one. Just finished Lean, Mean and Thirteen by Janet Evanovich. And....let me find my list. There are LOTS more! But help me out here..... which books are YOU looking forward to reading this summer??
More Than Fiends Hits Cleveland!!
