Summer...I Love It!

Reading summery...I can't see straight. I love this kind of girls not getting along but forced to spend the summer together in a family house in Nantucket kind of book! One bedroom is soft shabby pink quilts and peely white furniture...another is filled with seashells...OMG...I want to be there! Thank you Edelweiss or NetGalley...not sure where it came from...I can't find it on either might have been magic! Even better!

I have not been this happy reading a book in ages...I want lobsters and Cosmos and fried clams and I want to bike down a sandy rugged path and I want a drippy ice cream cone as I hop off of the ferry! And a tuna fish sandwich...just threw that in!

I think I just might have an author crush on Nancy Thayer. Oh my!

Off to read!

Buona Lettura!


  1. O sounds cute! And the house sounds adorbs.

  2. The book I'm reading is similar and really good too - The Summer Girls by Mary Alice Monroe.

  3. You make this one sound pretty good. Have you read her before? All her books are like that.

    1. Yes...that's what I love about her...I feel as though I know Nantucket!

  4. I do love Nancy Thayer's books...especially the ones that spotlight family dynamics. And take us to lovely places.

    This one is definitely on my list.

  5. Sounds like an amazing summer fun book, Patty! I'm also reading a great summer book, or two; but my books are copyrighted from 2003 and '4' (79cents thrift finds) One is called Summer People, by: Elin Hilderbrand, and the other Too Much Tuscan Sun by: Dario Castagno.

    The two books that I took to Italy were a little newer ones. from 2008 and '10'...LOL this is my life as a 'thrifter' the good life on a 'shoestring budget'!

  6. Sounds like you're a Shabby Chic kinda girl!
