Today is the first day of summer here in North America (if you are reading this in Australia, it is… well… not summer – grinning). Summer is always a happy time in the Chin household because it is when I devote myself fully to the writing. Almost fully. I do have a hubby to hang out with and weddings to go and, of course, those wonderful summer reads to plunge into.
I often hear reviewers say 'this is a great summer read' and I chuckle because summer reads vary for everyone. One of my buddies insists summer reads are those long, lush romances that she can spend a day or week or month (if she's lucky) on the beach reading. One of my other buddies claims that a good summer read is short and light. For her, they are stories that can be read between BBQ's and the campfire songs while spreading sunscreen on children's backs and avoiding a shaking wet dog.
My fave summer reads are sci fi romances. Normally historical romances are my first love but during the summer, my thoughts turn to space. I also read spicier. When I'm hot and sweaty, I want my characters to get hot and sweaty too though in a much sexier way.
What makes a summer read for you? Do your reading tastes change during the summer?
