Even as busy as library staff can be over the summer months, most still try to squeeze in some time for pleasure reading, and The Hub bloggers are no exception. A few of us have shared what (and where!) we’ve been reading over the last several weeks.
Sharon Rawlins took a reading break with Rachel Hartman’s Shadow Scale, the sequel to 2013 Morris Award winner Seraphina, in front of the famous Maxfield Parrish Dream Garden mural in the Curtis Publishing Company in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Laura Perenic read The Devil You Know by Trish Doller’s to some goats at Young’s Jersey Dairy in Yellow Springs, Ohio.
Todd Deck read I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson, the 2015 Printz Award winner, while on a break from paddle boarding on Whiskeytown Lake in California.
Allison Tran spent some time with an advanced reading copy of Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo in “the happiest reading place on Earth,” also known as Disneyland.
Jenni Frenchman has been trying to beat the heat this summer with some poolside reading. Her she has Anything Could Happen by Will Walton, The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough, The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey, and Conviction by Kelly Loy Gilbert.
Kelly Dickinson visited her brother in Poughkeepsie, New York, in the lovely Hudson River Valley area and spent some time reading some egalleys (with some ducks!) on her Kindle, including Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead, The Distance Between Lost and Found by Kathryn Holmes, and The Hired Girl by Laura Amy Schlitz.
Carly Pansulla checked out a stack of books for her vacation reading, including The False Prince by Jennifer Nielson, How to Be Both by Ali Smith, The Girl with all the Gifts by M.R. Carey, Kissing in America by Margo Rabb, and Girl in a Band by Kim Gordon.
Dawn Abron shares a collage of all the books on her reading list for the summer, including More Happy than Not by Adam Silvera, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, and Shadowshaper by by Daniel José Older.
I packed nothing but books for a trip to visit my brother in California, where I spent about two weeks reading, including Breakaway by Kat Spears at the beach, Dreamstrider by Lindsay Smith with donuts and coffee from Winchell’s, and P.S. I Love You by Jenny Han while sampling some macarons.
Hope everyone spent some time relaxing with a good book during these hot summer months!
