Some books to add to your summer reading list

Jul 1, 2013

Oh friends!  Have I some treats for you.  A few weeks ago I spent a whole weekend reading.  I know doesn't that sound just wonderful!  I can't remember the last time I just got to read and read...ahhhhhh.  Anyway! Now you get to hear about what I read that glorious weekend!

I've Got Your Number: A Novel by Sophie Kinsella

Poor Poppy Wyatt.  The party was going quite wonderful...until the fire. In the mass exodus she lost her engagement ring.  The family heirloom. Giant expensive stone. Engagement ring.  Unfortunately, that is just the beginning.  Of course things get worse because next goes the cell phone.  How will she live without her cell?  But perhaps things won't be so bad after all...she finds a cell in the trash.  But who should call??? The owner of course, Mr. Sam Roxton who surprisingly wants his company cell back and would like it if Poppy would stop answering emails and going through his messages.  The adventure begins.  Trouble and many surprises are on the horizon as these two lives cross paths.  More than one lesson is learned and it might be a coin toss as to who learned more.

Sophie Kinsella is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors, and this book is a great example of her wit and humor.  Take a moment to check out Sophie's website and let me know if you have read her new book The Wedding.

Waterfall {River of Time Series} by Lisa T. Bergren

A romantic/adventurous young adult novel set in the beautiful countryside of Italy.  Lia and Gabby Bentarrini, two American teenagers spend their summers in Italy with their mother on archeological grave sites.  Boring city.  When the girls decide to explore the site on their own, they find some mysterious hand prints that when touched transports them to medieval Italy complete with knights and castles and danger...lots and lots of danger.  And Gabi landed right in the middle of it, somehow separated from Lia.  With the help of Marcello Falassi and his knights Gabi is on the mission to save her sister and hopefully stay alive long enough to do so.  Gabi isn't the usual damsel in distress that Marcello is used to.

Be prepared to read for big chunks of time with this book, not because it is long or tough to get through, but because it is adventure after adventure and I found it hard to put down.  You also might want to have the second one close at hand, because the ending will have you wanting more.
