Summer Reads 2017

This year is flying by, so I wanted to share some great summer reads for 2017 before we are raking leaves in the fall. These are some books that haven’t necessarily come out in the past year – I just happened to have have read them in the past year. Each one is light and/or fun making them perfect for summer reading.

Enjoy!

Where the Hell is Tesla?Where the Hell is Tesla?

A guy, Chip, finds Nikola Tesla’s notebook with information on where to find an “Interdimensional Transfer Apparatus” he created. Chip convinces his best friend to go with him to find this “Interdimensional Transfer Apparatus” and they go through it into, well, and interdimensional transfer area. And the hilarity ensues.

What I Like to Read

My desire to write came from a love of reading, which seems to be true for a lot of writers.

I tend to be drawn to books in the sci-fi/fantasy realm, but I have read books from pretty much every genre. If I had to list my favorites (notice I didn’t say my favorite singular, because that would be almost impossible to pick one), I’d have to go with the following:

As I write this post, I keep thinking of more books that are among my favorites (the Harry Potter series, The Girl on the Train, Enigma…). If I keep adding them to the list, I’ll never get this post published! So I will share those in later along with any new books I run across that I love.

Have you read any of the books listed above? What are your favorites? I love talking to people about books! 🙂
