Summer Lovin' Blog Tour!

Hello and Happy Summer to all my fabulous readers and bloggers!! Well, almost summer, maybe? I don't know, it's SNOWING here in Upstate New York, but anyways! We'll just ignore that. Today I'm excited to be participating in the Summer Lovin' Blog Tour, hosted by Sourcebooks Fire to celebrate this summer's very best beach reads!!

Featured in this blog tour are two all-new YA books-- The Summer of No Regrets by Katherine Grace Bond and While He Was Away by Karen Schreck. Both sound like awesome summer reads, and I hope you guys will check them out and add them to your summer To-Be-Read lists!

The day Brigitta accidentally flings herself into the lap of a guy she's never met, her friend Natalie is convinced he's Trent Yves, egotistical heartthrob-in-hiding. When the boy, who calls himself Luke, is nearly eaten by a cougar, Brigitta finds herself saving his life, being swept into his spectacular embrace and wondering if she wants Natalie's fantasy to be true.
As the two spend the summer together raising orphaned cougar cubs, Brigitta still can't be sure of his true identity. But then again, since her grandparents' death, her father's sudden urge to give away all their possessions and become a shaman, and her own awkward transition from girlhood into a young woman, she isn't sure of anything. What is the truth? More importantly, can she accept it?

All she wants is for him to stay. She's been doing pretty well, pretending he doesn't have to go. But one day, after one last night to remember, she wakes up and there's no denying it anymore. He's gone. When Penna Weaver's boyfriend goes off to Iraq, she's left facing life without him. As summer sets in, Penna tries to distract herself with work and her art, but the not knowing is slowly driving her crazy. Especially when David stops writing. She knows in her heart he will come home. But will he be the same boy she fell in love with?

SO to celebrate the release of these two new fabulous YA books, I will be posting MY review tomorrow of While He Was Away by Karen Schreck (hint, hint: It was so good!) and then on Thursday I'll be posting an awesome guest post by the lovely author, Karen Schreck. So I hope you guys will stay tuned for all the Summer Lovin' fun coming up this week!

Also, let me know in the comments-- have you read either of these two new books yet? Do you plan to? What books do you have on the top of your Summer Reading lists for 2012?? I'd love to hear about your guys' summer reading plans! ;)

Happy Reading everyone!!
