But alas, #HotReadsSummer has begun! The sweet iced tea (my summer sub in for hot cocoa) can be served and the beach chair set out for catching Vitamin D and taking in knowledge at the same time. While I do not enjoy battling tiger mosquitos, there is just something refreshing about sitting outside and reading a book in peace (with repellant and sun block of course!) What is your favorite summer reading setup?
I seem to have developed two patterns in my reading goals. One, I have inevitably finished three of the five books for both May and June that were on my original reading list. While subbing out two books each time in a mood reader shift. lol! Second, I find that I frequently balance nonfiction against fiction. Which I think I prefer, because sometimes I need a breather after coming up for air from a novel and vice versa. For me nonfiction is for daytime reading and fiction is for the evening. What patterns have you seen in your own reading?

July Reading Anticipation…
I am currently halfway through reading Blackout by Dhonielle Clayton, Tiffany D. Jackson, Nic Stone, Angie Thomas, Ashley Woodfolk and Nicola Yoon. It is a tribute to young Black love. I am also excited to continue reading Clint Smith’s How the Word is Passed. I love his writing style and his book about slavery in America has me feeling like I was on the journey with him. The man knows how to handle language!
Your post really made me wanna run outside with some iced tea and sunblock! Looks like you had a good month! Happy reading!
Lol! You should!!! Glad you enjoyed the post! Hope you are coming across some good reads as well!
