Boy, this makes me want to break out my Will Smith CDs! "Summer, summer, summer time - lets just sit back and unwind..."
Anyhow, I digress. Feature & Follow is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Visit to find out how to participate.
This week's question is:
Q: School is out! What is your favorite Summer Reading book??
Oh gosh... this is a toughie. Its gonna start getting old if every answer I have to everything is Harry Potter, though I do clearly remember the last time I read HP before I finished the series last year was one of my middle school summer vacations. I hadn't done that well in school, so apparently my mother thought making me read was a punishment. I got halfway through HP and the Order of the Phoenix before my mom retracted my punishment and let me play outside. Good times though!
I never had assigned reading during the summer. Is that weird? I know many, many kids grew up every summer having choices from a list of books and having to read so many of them, but I never did. I grew up in Long Island, New York, and then when we moved to Pennsylvania, I was 17 and out of high school. My sister went to high school a few years later and they had summer reading lists every year. Ha-Ha! I got off easy. I'm not sure what it was about Long Island or maybe just the school I went to, but it never happened. Go Central Islip!! :)
Summer also makes me think of romance novels. I used to be huge on romance, and summer is just so light and fun and romances are such easy reads for me, even when they are full of gratuitous sex and tragedy. It just seems like it all goes together, haha.
So I guess other than Harry Potter, I don't have a favorite summer reading book, per say, just general things I like to read. How about you? What's your favorite summer reading book?
