Being a long standing book cover lover ~
Marissa’s Reading List Spring themed Book Tag Challenge is perfect.
I couldn’t resist the offer and now passing it along to other
book cover lovers.  Let me know in comments if you’re playing along.
Then, Link up at Marissa’s READING LIST  ..

There are 6 categories that fit SPRING and a book for each category.
This isn’t
 necessarily a  recommendation of the book, just that it fits the category.
The fun begin
s, after you check out my list, when you create your own list!

Copy the categories and add your corresponding book cover.
Easy.

  You can pick books based on the cover,
recommendations, or even books you read years ago .
Ready?  Here we go!

1. Spring Showers: What would spring be without the life-giving showers that are a sure sign that spring is here?  Share a book that is a quick read and sure to lift your spirits.   This one absolutely delivers…

2.     Colourful Flowers: After the showers come beautiful flowers of all colors.  Pick a book that has a pretty flower or floral pattern somewhere on the cover.  A lovely vintage read…

3.      Shades of Green: Between the grass, the leaves on the trees, and all of the new flowers, there are so many shades of green everywhere in spring.  Can you think of a book that is driven by conflict over money?
Totally! and a fantastic read it is…

4.      Picnics & Strolls in the Park: After months of being stuck inside there is nothing like an escape to the park. Share a book that has an iconic scene in a park – or at least has a scene in a park that was vivid to you.
Definitely a fav novel with a vivid and tissue worthy park scene.

5.      All Things Fresh & New: Spring is the season for new, share a book that has caught your eye this season and is brand new – even if you haven’t read it yet, or might not ever!    I chose one I Read + Loved!

6.     Running Shoes, Flip-flops, Sandals, Rain bootsYou have to admit the selection for footwear goes up significantly in the Spring.  Pick a book that showcases a foot or shoe on the cover.

20 Books of Summer 2016

20 books summer 2016 746 books

Joining Cathy at 746 Books
20 Books of Summer Challenge
once again.

Naming my 20 Books of Summer would end in disappointment as I’m sure
to edit my list enroute to  Sept 5th closing.
So, I will name books already on my summer ARC list
plus authors I’m sure to read and audiobook listen
to give a semblance as to what the rest of my participation will include;
which allows me the reading freedom this free spirited reader prefers…
Hoping that satisfies everyone and host, Cathy, about my participation.
She’s not a tough host requiring strict adherence to expectations,
I can assure you!
Don’t be intimidated in joining in.  You can even choose your reading totals
or goals to 10 / 15 / 20 as fits your summer reading plans.
Cathy’s reading 20 by female authors.  Mine are as well,
with addition of 1 male writing team member.

Plus the fact my reading is influenced by
JUNE as AUDIOBOOK MONTH  –  PARIS in JULY  –  AUSTEN in AUGUST –
and BIG BOOK SUMMER for 400+ page reading.
Be bold and join the lineup for the June 1st start.  I’ll be reading and tweeting
@_eHope with #20b00ksofsummer to identify progress
