  6. Wow, nice contest! I always like reading Sarah Dessen in the summertime. Most of them are set in that season, and they're not TOO frothy. Very touching stuff.

I love summer reading, the new books and reading outside, it's a whole experience. There are so many good books coming up too. I Really look forward to Finger Lickin' Fifteen by Janet Evanovich because of the laugh-out-loud humor.

  80. Happy Extended Birthday celebration! My favorite beach read are books by Jennifer Weiner for grownup reading and I think Rachel Cohn for YA. Both offer a good, slightly cynical alternative to straight chicklit romance and an amazing sense of location and community.
