    ReplyDelete
  61. Probably: My Life Next Door :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'm torn between Second Chance Summer and Open Road Summer (yeah, they both have the word summer) but I think I'm gonna pick Open Road Summer since it's more on the light side and that's what summer is, light and fun! Forgive the redundancy of the S-word. :D

    ReplyDelete
  63. I think Second Chance Summer because that's one of my all time favorites!! Open Road Summer sounds really good though.. :D

    ReplyDelete
  64. I would choose second chance summer

    ReplyDelete
  65. I've been wanting to read Amy & Roger's Epic Detour since forever, but Wanderlove sounds pretty good, too. I also read an eARC of My Life Next Door and I totally adored it and I want to have my own copy. TOUGH, TOUGH CHOICE AND I HAVEN'T EVEN WON YET, haha. Thanks for this giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  66. My Life Next Door... or Wanderlove.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love this feature! It's such a great idea. I will be eagerly anticipating all of the posts that go along with this feature. It's so much fun to see where different bloggers live and, my favorite part, where they read (I saw that Andi included that in her post of Boston!), since that's such a huge part of all of our lives. Your giveaway list is SO GREAT, but I'm most excited about Breakfast Served Anytime. I feel like it flew under the radar, but it sounds like my kind of book!

    ReplyDelete
  68. One of my favorite things about the picture of the books isn't even the books (although they are great!) - it's the pretty and colorful flowers that make me feel happy and summery just by looking at them!

    ReplyDelete
  69. These are all such awesome books, it's a tough list to pick from! I would probably go Second Chance Summer or Open Road Summer.

    ReplyDelete

  80. Open Road Summer by Emery Lord-I've heard so many good things about it and can't wait to pick it up! Never been on a road trip but boy, would I love to! :D

    ReplyDelete
  81. This is such a unique idea for a blog post. It's a great way to bring bloggers together and enjoy the summer at the same time. I love it. Also, I do love summer reads, except I tend to love them in the middle of winter or on a rainy day so you can daydream about Summer to comfort yourself. I'm so tempted by Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols I don't know how I haven't read that already, I may be buying that later.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Thanks for the giveaway! Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson would be my choice!
