WANTED: A Good Read
First of all...
Happy 4th of July!!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!
Now that that's out of the way, on to more important things.
I'm gearing up for my vacation sans kiddos. Sans kiddos is important because it means the most taxing thing I'll have to do is position my chaise lounge on the beach and signal Juan the pool boy to get me a margarita. On the beach is key because it means I get to lie around all day and do nothing more than bask in the sun, drink like a fish, and read a good book.
That's where y'all (as Lin would say) come in.
Since my CPs haven't been sending me anything to read lately (tsk, tsk), I've had to restrain myself from reading my to-be-read-on-the-beach books the past few weeks. Now that my vacation's almost here though, I'm looking at my pile thinking, "Hmm...that's not gonna last long." I'm a fairly fast reader, and I tend to go through beach books rather quickly. I have two romantic suspenses I've been drooling over, a contemporary a friend recommended, and even (egad!) a historical a writer friend has assured me I'll like. (Actually, I asked said writer friend to pick out ONE historical for me to try - I'm just not into historicals - and she came back with a whole BAG full of books for me. I've committed to one, so I'll start with one, but I'm not taking up valuable suitcase space with books I may never read.) Four books will probably last me four days max, and I need at least a couple more to tide me over (otherwise Juan the pool boy will be getting way too much exercise hoofing it back and forth to the bar for my tequila).
So give it to me straight...I need some recommendations for great "can't put down books" to take with me. Preferably contemporaries or romantic suspenses - but I'm open to just about anything.
