The Daily Beast has a terrific gallery/article on the topic of My Favorite Summer Read....Ever in which several notable authors share their own choices. Last summer, I would have to say Jayne Pupek's Tomato Girl was my favorite hot-weather read. This summer it's a toss up between The Paris Wife by Paula McLaine and Chris Cleave's haunting debut, Incendiary.(Although I'm currently reading The Wizard of Oz to my daughters and, well, it may well be a lasting memory for all three of us summer bibliophiles!) If I was forced to pick a favorite of all-time, I might have to choose Where The Red Fern Grows. I still remember being called out of my room for dinner, still sobbing and sobbing into my plate.
What is your favorite summer read?
