Summer Book Recs from Bridget (aka the Lazy Blogger)

Posted in Favorite Books at 1:02 pm by Bridget

I am the laziest of lazy bloggers and I try to post on my own blog now and then because otherwise people fear the worst, but I haven’t been over here in ages. Poor Janet, working Tarts’ all on her ownsies.

But I can’t let the season go by without sharing a couple of summer book recs.

As You Wish by Jackson Pearce comes out sometime in August and is a fabulous summer read — fun and romantic and light. There’s a hot jinn, three wishes, and all sorts of delicious conflict. Plus, it has one of those perfect endings where you close the book and feel totally satisfied.

The other book that I fell in love with recently was Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston. There’s lots of good stuff here like Shakespeare, cute guys in Central Park, power hungry faeries and the repercussions of old vendettas. There are scary parts, I have to warn you, but worth it for the romance and all the rest.

    I’ll have to check those out! What’s a jinn, by the way? A genie? Hot jinn sounds like a drink!

    Hot jinn does sound like a drink! Yes, a jinn is a genie.
