The Camping TBR Pile
I know, I know! I'll never get through all these books in a month, but I couldn't stop at my usual list of five. Every back blurb about summer camp I read, I fell in love with; it's one of my favorite tropes. So, while my own kids are off enjoying themselves, weaving beads onto necklaces, swimming, tromping through the woods, and making new summer friends, I'll be picking through my towering book pile and delving into some fun of my own.
I consider myself an avid romance reader, and even I can't comprehend how I've never picked up a Debbie Macomber book. Here goes with:
1.) Almost Paradise by Debbie Macomber - Romance
I bought the next two books at Costco and am going to buddy read, then swap with one of my kids. She reads fast; I read slow. Should be interesting.
2.) Lions & Liars by Kate Beasley - Middle Grade
3.) Orphan Island by Laurel Snyder - Middle Grade
A while ago, I picked up a book called Camp Dorks, only to realize it was the second in a series. So now, I have to read this so I can read the other. Oh, what a complicated book world this is!
4.) Pack of Dorks (Pack of Dorks #1) by Beth Vrabel - Middle Grade
Okay, so I did a search on "summer camp" and discovered there are not five, not ten, not even twenty...but twenty-five books in this series! Prolific much?
5.) Natalie's Secret (Camp Confidential #1) by Melissa J. Morgan - Middle Grade
I'm done staring at this awesome cover from afar. Went in for the kill, library-style.
6.) When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon - Young Adult
I love camping! I love summer! I love this cover!
7.) The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland by Rebekah Crane - Young Adult
Cute cover and over a hundred five-star reviews on Amazon. Okay, I'll bite.
8.) Sleepaway Girls (Whispering Pines #1) by Jen Calonita - Young Adult
Summer camp for adults? Yes, please. Now try saying "Firefly Falls" three times fast. Not sure how the alliteration came to pass, but I found these ebooks free on Amazon and thought they rounded out the pile nicely.
9.) Once Upon a Camp Fire (Camp Firefly Falls "Meet Cute") by Kait Nolan - Romance
11.) Skinny Dipping Dare (Camp Firefly Falls #4) by Zoe York - Romance
Firefly Falls...flier fry falls...friar fly falls...help.
