Summer is a busy time for me with a bit of travel and a lot of writing and reading. Plus, as many of you know, I now have ducks!
Long story, but meet Darcy (the white Pekin) and Lizzy (the black Indian Runner). I’ve had them since they were ducklings and they are now a little over four months old. I’m completely smitten by my ducks and fortunately they seem to adore me right back. Ducks are kind of like dogs – they follow simple commands (come, stay, go home, etc.) and are great company. I spend almost every afternoon sitting in the fenced-in backyard with them. They forage, run around, take a dip in the kiddie pool, and act cute, and I read. *
I’ve been reading some fantastic books! Here are some I recommend if you’re looking for great summer reads!
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson (YA)
Landline by Rainbow Rowell (adult fiction)
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins (YA)
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han (YA)
One Plus One by Jojo Moyes (adult fiction)
Plus don’t forget the great books I’ve highlighted in my Spotlight interviews!
If you have book recs for me, feel free to share in the comments! I have a huge towering TBR pile but I’m always willing to buy more books!
Happy summer and happy reading!
*For anyone concerned about the well-being of my ducks, I have a long history of working with animals of all kinds and a degree in Zoology.
