The Book List Meme - February 18

The Book List Meme, brought to us by Rebecca of Lost In Books, asks this week for three books that make me long for warmer weather. I figured that I could wrap this one up quickly enough. Turns out that I don't really read "beach" reads so there really weren't quick choices. But I do tend to steer away from the heavier fare--both literally and figuratively. These are the kinds of things that make me think of summer reading:

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

The Last Beach Bungalow by Jennie Nash

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason by Helen Fielding


  1. I can't think of any!!!!

    Lemme think :(

  2. Great list! I haven't read The Last Beach Bungalow, but have read lots of great things about Jennie Nash's work, so I need to check it out.

  3. I suppose one could put just about any book in the category of making one long for warmer weather these days, with the possible exception of Russian novels!


  4. Still cold up there?

    They've started the footy season down here. Way too hot for that. I reckon the guys will have to wear ice vests.


    Publish or Perish

  5. I LOVE Guernsey!

    I think a good warm weather book might be "Garden Spells" by Sarah Addison Allen. The idea of falling asleep in your back yard garden just sounds so warm and peaceful :o)

  6. Great list, Lisa! You came up with some good ones. Thanks for participating this week! :)
