The Summer of Songbirds by Kristy Woodson Harvey {Publishing 7.11.23}

{Thank you to @gallerybooks & @uplitreads for my free copy of The Summer of Songbirds}

Did you ever go to summer camp as a kid?

I went to a couple of years of summer camp (girl scout camp to be exact!) and I still have vivid memories of the early swims in the lake, the raising of the flag and making lots of friendship bracelets!

I love books that also make you a little nostalgic, and if you do too, you might like to check out Kristy Woodson Harvey’s upcoming release, #TheSummerOfSongbirds…publishing July 11th!

“The Summer of Songbirds is a lyrical and unforgettable celebration of female friendship, summertime freedom, and enduring sisterhood—and a love letter to the places and people that make us who we are. Four women come together to save the summer camp that changed their lives and rediscover themselves in the process.”

I just love this author- she writes the sweetest, most relatable, insightful stories, all tied together by a great group of characters. This book tells the story of four women, who after the pandemic, come together to save their treasured summer camp.

Summers spent at camp tied these women together for life and I loved reading about their current lives, how they came together, and how they ultimately won their camp back. This book is perfect for the summer months ahead, especially if summer camp was a big part of your own childhood!

Summer Reading Recommendation! {The Seven Year Slip}

🌻🍉⛱️ Summer Reading #TBRList! {Thank you to @berkleypub for my #free review copy}⁣

Ashley Poston

Did this past weekend get you excited for all things summer reading too?!☀️ Did you enjoy The Dead Romantics?? Then you should get your summer reading list ready, because author Ashley Poston has another book on the horizon this June, and it’s a good one! 💃🏻⁣

“An overworked book publicist with a perfectly planned future hits a snag when she falls in love with her temporary roommate…only to discover he lives seven years in the past, in this witty and wise new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Dead Romantics.”⁣

This book was so fun and unique, and after a bit of fiction reading slump, made for the perfect remedy. I love a good time traveling story, coupled with a little romance and personal growth and this author certainly delivered. 👏⁣

I enjoyed the characters, the unique timelines, the hidden bits of wisdom, and the sub storylines of cooking, painting, and travel. This was another creative read by author Ashley Poston and I can’t wait to see what she writes next!⁣

{The Seven Year Slip will be published on 6.27.23!}⁣

✨QOTD: Do you have any books or specific authors on your summer reading list yet? Any standouts I should add to mine? I would love to hear! You can join me over on my bookstagram account @genthebookworm to join in on the conversation!

Five Star Beach Read Alert!! // The Hotel Nantucket by Elin Hilderbrand

The Hotel Nantucket

The Hotel Nantucket by Elin Hilderbrand

I read The Hotel Nantucket back in April and it made for the perfect spring vacation read! I am a big fan of author ElinHilderbrand’s older books and this one brought me right back ! I enjoyed that it featured the hospitality industry, much like The Blue Bistro did…which is my favorite Elin book! 💙⁣

⁣It has a large cast of characters who all have their own storylines but also all intertwine. I even loved the paranormal element which I wasn’t sure about at first! 👻⁣

⁣All in all, this was just the perfect easy and engaging read! It had enough depth to not feel like total fluff, and the food descriptions and amazing summer vacation location just made it so incredibly fun to read. 👏⁣

⁣I loved it so much I knew I needed a hard copy for my shelf and @bookofthemonth came through when it was one of the June add-ons! And how perfect does it look with this adorable cookie I found at @klingersbakery today? 👙💓⁣
