Now that the kids are back in school, I can feel summer drawing to a close--even though we finally have gorgeous weather! Remember those "What I Did Last Summer" essays so many of us had to write in elementary school? They're the inspiration behind today's post.
It would be too difficult to name just one title as the best book I read all summer, but one of the books I truly enjoyed was TEXAS GOTHIC by Rosemary Clement-Moore.
Here's the blurb:
Amy Goodnight's family is far from normal. She comes from a line of witches, but tries her best to stay far outside the family business. Her summer gig? Ranch-sitting for her aunt with her wacky but beautiful sister. Only the Goodnight Ranch is even less normal than it normally is. Bodies are being discovered, a ghost is on the prowl, and everywhere she turns, the hot neighbor cowboy is in her face.
It was such a fun book! Without giving anything away, here are some of the things that pulled me in:
*I loved the voice.
*I cared about Amy Goodnight right away.
*It's a funny book! One scene made me laugh out loud!
*I love it when books with a paranormal or fantastical bent are successfully set in the real world.
*It has a great opening, and I was hooked immediately. I found an excerpt at the Random House site, and you can check out the first pages if you'd like.
Now it's your turn! What was one of your favorite summer reads?
