The Divining Wand’s Summer TBR List

June 28, 2011 By: larramiefg Category: News

Dear Authors/Readers/Friends —

What a spectacular year it’s been here at The Divining Wand. From authors revealed, guests posts, responses to writing/literary questions, and the presentations/reviews, this Fairy Godmother — with great pride and joy — believes she has introduced the very best of the best for everyone’s enjoyment.

But what about this summer? After asking the authors for their summer TBR lists, I decided it might be worthwhile to share my personal list too.

Catching Up On:

~The Inner Circle by Brad Meltzer

~Twenty-Somewhere [Kindle Edition] by Kristan Hoffman (Yes our most loyal commenter Kristan!)

~Here, Home, Hope by Kaira Rouda

Looking Forward To:

~Centuries of June by Keith Donohue

~Maine by J. Courtney Sullivan

~Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand

~Game of Secrets by Dawn Tripp

~The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb by Melanie Benjamin

~Before Ever After by Samantha Sotto

~Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close

~The Winters in Bloom by Lisa Tucker (e-galley)

First To-Be-Read:

The entire Harry Potter series. It’s time for this Fairy Godmother to meet the Boy Wizard!

Since the list grows daily, you might be wondering where I’ll ever find the time? Well, after almost five years of blogging, I’m granting myself a summer vacation. Imagining two months free of posts and deadlines is impossible, I don’t remember what that feels like but will savor every bit of reclaiming the experience.

If you follow me on Twitter and/or are a friend on Facebook, I plan on being there as well as making personal blog tours.. So, if you see me, please at least wave.

Happy summer to you and thank you all!

As ever —
Larramie

  2. Aw, thank you! I hope you enjoy the 20SW girls/story. 🙂

    And oh my gosh, YES, you must read Harry Potter! I have to admit, when I first tried it, I was like, “Eh, this is what everyone’s crazy about?” But after the hype died down I tried again, and it totally blew me away.

    Enjoy your vacation!

    I loved the Harry Potter series! I was late to the party, but took them all in at once, one right after the other (audio books – I have a very long commute!!), and was totally immersed for weeks – loved it!

    Enjoy your summer, I’ll miss you but you deserve it!

  7. Have a GREAT summer holiday and a well deserved rest. Can’t wait to hear back from you in the fall. Hope you enjoy Harry Potter (I confess, I’ve not read any of it either) as well as all the other books on your list.

    Big hugs,
    s.
