While browsing at Barnes & Noble on Sunday, I discovered Holly's Inbox by Holly Denham. Later on that afternoon, I saw this review by Cheryl of Cheryl's Book Nook. Cheryl writes:
"Have you ever wanted to feel what it is like in someone else's shoes? Well you can in Holly's Inbox. Holly Denham has decided to open her inbox to readers. So come take a wild and crazy ride into Holly's world."
She concludes her review by saying:
"I want to thank Holly for letting me into her world and specifically her email inbox. What a hoot. I started this book on a Sunday morning and by evening I had finished it."
I immediately added my name to the wait list at my library. I also discovered this website for Holly's Inbox. Sounds like it will make a great summer read.

Melody of Melody's Reading Corner wrote a fantastic review of The Accidental Bestseller by Wendy Wax. Melody writes:
"Besides about authors and an insight of the publishing world today, The Accidental Bestseller is a wonderful story about friendship, loyalty and courage. Wendy Wax created four well engaging characters and through their experiences in life, these give us something to ponder about what if life does not turn out as planned, and/or are we willing to give life (or anything) a second chance?"
Another good summer read. This book will be released on June 2, 2009. I've added it to my wish list.

Finally, Nely from All About n reviewed 20 Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler. Nely writes:
"This was such a beautiful and poignant story about the powers of friendships, loss, summer romances, healing and believing in oneself. Once I started I could not put it down. The characters were so real - you can’t help but to laugh, cry, and eventually fall in love with them. Ms. Ockler wins you with her imagery and you long to be there laying out on the beach with the girls. I loved this and I highly recommend it."
Another winner for a good summer read. I also added my name to the wait list for this one.
