Summer Reading with William Morrow...Give Away!

Oh, how I love a great summer read! Warm nights made for sitting on the porch lost in a good book are a real favorite of mine. Lucky for me, William Morrow has a huge list of fantastic summer reads available from some great authors. This summer I am enjoying some summer "me time" in the form of books from Shelley Noble, Meg Cabot and Kerry Reichs thanks to William Morrow. Here are three reads that are perched next to a tall glass of iced tea just waiting for me to dig into....
What You Wish For by Kerry Reichs
Book Description

Having a baby is . . . complicated.

Dimple knows. She's a successful actress who is turning forty—though her agent and her resume insist she's only thirty-six—and she figures it's now or never. Certainly it's not a good time for an intriguing director to show up at her door with a great script.

Eva, fabulous agent to the stars, doesn't want kids—and never wanted kids. Why is her decision so damned hard for everyone else to accept?

When Maryn was undergoing treatment for cancer, she and her husband both agreed to have embryos frozen. But that was way before their divorce and her remission—and now she's single and childless, and caught in the middle of a controversy she never saw coming.

The traditional and nontraditional couples desperate for a baby . . . the adoptive parents . . . the single mom . . . the two who want nothing to do with parenthood. . . . This is a thoroughly modern story of the pursuit of family in all its forms—and of five very different ways of getting there.


Size 12 and Ready to Rock by Meg Cabot

Book Description

Summer break . . . and the livin' ain't easy!

Just because the students at New York College have flown the coop doesn't mean assistant residence hall director Heather Wells can relax. Fischer Hall is busier than ever, filled with squealing thirteen- and fourteen-year-old girls attending the first ever Tania Trace Teen Rock Camp, hosted by pop sensation Tania Trace herself—who just happens to be newly married to Heather's ex-boyfriend, heartthrob Jordan Cartwright. But the real headache begins when the producer of a reality TV show starring Tania winds up dead . . . and it's clear that the star was the intended victim.

Grant Cartwright, head of Cartwright Records, wants to keep his daughter-in-law (and his highest-earning performer) alive. So he hires his oldest son, black sheep of the family and private investigator Cooper Cartwright—who just happens to be Heather's new fiancĂ©. Heather should leave the detecting to Cooper. But with a dorm full of hysterical mini-divas-in-training, she can't help but get involved. And after Tania shares a really shocking secret with her, this reality suddenly becomes more dangerously real than anyone ever anticipated.


Beach Colors by Shelley Noble

Book Description

While renowned designer Margaux Sullivan was presenting her highly praised collection during New York City's Fashion Week, her husband was cleaning out their bank account. A week after he disappeared, the bank foreclosed on Margaux's apartment and business.

Suddenly broke, betrayed, and humiliated, Margaux has nowhere else to turn to but home: the small coastal town of Crescent Cove, Connecticut, where she once knew love, joy, and family before she put them behind her on the climb to fame. When she's stopped for speeding by local interim police chief Nick Prescott, Margaux barely remembers the "townie" boy who worshipped her from afar every summer. But Nick is all grown up now, a college professor who gave up his career to care for his orphaned nephew, Connor. Though still vulnerable, Margaux is soon rediscovering the beauty of the shore through young Connor's eyes . . . and, thanks to Nick, finding a forgotten place in her heart that wants to love again.

But as she continues to work on a bold new line that will get her back into the game, Margaux realizes that soon she will have to make the most important, most difficult decision of her life. . . .

Go ahead and lose yourself in a great book this summer thanks to William Morrow.  Each of the above books can be purchased on Amazon (clicking on the title link for each above will take you there) as well as all other book sellers.

I don't really carve out time on a regular basis. I just try and use free time as much as I can...bring a book whenever I got somewhere in case I have time, bring something to read at school inbetween some classes, read sometimes at night, and I read a TON in the pool during the summer

I usually read when the mood hits me, if that coincides with free time, that is. Usually in the evenings after supper.

My kindle has been valuable in helping me find time to read, it's in my purse so if I find myself in line somewhere or on hold I have a few minutes to catch up!
