Thrilled that THE SUMMER LIST is on PopSugar’s summer reading list: Best New Books to Put in Your Beach Bag.
“Two childhood friends — once inseparable, now estranged — meet 17 years later. Can an invitation to a grownup scavenger hunt, one of their favorite activities from childhood, bring them back to where they once were? The Summer List is a sparkling debut novel filled with nostalgia that will make you long for your childhood friends and carefree summer days.”
I am SO excited about this event! I’ll be in San Diego on June 10 with 20+ other amazing book club authors, including keynote speaker Jenna Blum, for Adventures by the Book‘s Book Club Bingo day. It’s going to be a fun day of games, discussions, giveaways and more. All proceeds from book sales go to the San Diego Public Library.
I’ll be giving away EARLY finished copies of THE SUMMER LIST (on sale June 26).
Choosing your book club titles for summer? I hope you’ll consider the THE SUMMER LIST. With relatable themes (rekindled girlhood friendship, mothers & daughters, first love), a summery lakeside setting, and twisty scavenger hunt plot, I think it’d make an excellent pick.
I created a 90s music playlist for the novel late last year, so I’ve been listening to Dolores O’Riordan’s gorgeous voice for months. I knew I wanted a Cranberries song in the mix because they will forever be the sound of my 20s. Linger…Ode to My Family…Dreams…it was so hard to pick one. I finally chose Zombie. It still gives me shivers and I’m so sad to hear that she’s gone.
Thank you to an amazing artist & strong woman.
