I have a list of books to share that I have read, am reading or will be reading during this summer.
Are hot vampires, mythology, demonology and religious beliefs your thing? You will not go wrong with the late L.A. Banks series of books (13) called the Vampire Huntress Legends.
These books are legendary and beloved by many who followed with bated breath. Steamy? Oh yeah! Mind blowing, imaginative and creative, I am currently re-reading the series now. The books are better now than when I originally read them. Catching so many little “facts” that I missed the first time I zoomed through her books.
Ms. Leslie was a wonderful person.
I emailed her after reading the 4th book in the series, the book was THAT GOOD! Imagine my surprise when I opened my email the next day and had an actual response. We exchanged emails regularly after that and got to meet at a book reading at Mondawmin. Some of the info in her books is so wild; I had remarked that her imagination was off the hook. Her response was she often “trolled” the internet between 2am and 5am. There would be reports of bizarre happenings around the world that would mysteriously disappear by morning. Some of this “happenings” made their way into her books. Just some food for thought.
Dean Koontz is another of my favorite authors. I love the way he weaves everyday life with extraordinary events and people. His characters are memorable (like Stephen King) compelling and have you routing for their victory against evil villains (both mortal and supernatural).
James Patterson (Cross) is another winner. Since he is such a prolific author you can choose from a few series. Take your pick. Alex Cross – the black detective played by Morgan Freeman AND Tyler Perry or The Women’s Detective Club – I think we are up to book 12 in that series.
Spend some of your summer down time immersed in a great book. No need to feel lonely or alone. Just hit your porch, deck, patio or balcony. Bring a cool drink (alcohol included) and settle in for a few hours offline with no TV, computer or phone. Add some music and instant relaxation! Trust me; you will be glad you did!

Thanks for READING!
