Summer Reading List
I really love to read, but I've been so terrible at actually getting to it lately. I'm excited to get through these four books in the next few weeks and would LOVE to know your book recommendations or what you're reading. I'm generally cheap when it comes to books because I know I can get them for $1 or less so I only buy Nook books when they're under $5 unless I NEED it. I also buy tons of books at yard sales for anywhere from a quarter to a dollar. So many in fact that there is a box with at least 50 books sitting in my living room waiting for me to get a bookshelf. I'm so excited to get started on those books because I've been feeling guilty about buying them and then just letting them sit around. Some have been around for a couple of years and I haven't read them yet. I'm so excited to start reading tonight. I'm thinking an iced tea while I sit outside with the dogs this afternoon reading one of the following. Perfection.

"The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate percentage of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance between her and the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend America, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University’s Walking One-Night Stand.
Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the charming college co-ed. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his charms, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’ apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match."

"A riveting suspense thriller that explores the special bond between a brother and sister. After his reporter-sister is brutally attacked investigating the rape of a 13-year old, Richard Baimbridge moves back to his hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina, to assist his family with her recovery and comes face to face with his tormented past and a dark family secret.
Despised by his father, haunted by his past, and fighting to stay above the flood of childhood trauma, he longs to return to the life he'd built. But when the police exhaust all leads, his wheelchair-bound sister refuses to let her case die. With Richard as her legs, she draws him into the dark underside of Wilmington, a world of sex, violence, and murder where Richard, himself, becomes the primary suspect in the murders of Wilmington’s young girls. Desperate to learn the truth about his family and drowning in a sea of damning evidence and rumor, Richard battles to prove his innocence and discovers the man he was intended to be."
