Title: Summer Reading

We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever ~ Carl Sagan

How is your summer going so far? Officially, it’s summer yet until the weekend, but for me, it started with Memorial Day Weekend. Thomas and I are knee deep in summer activities: grilling out more often than not, keeping the plants on our patio alive, and just generally enjoying ourselves. We went to the drive in movie two weekends ago and we have Kansas City Pride coming up this weekend.

What about reading? Do you read more or less in the summer? Growing up, I always read more and can remember spending Saturday and Wednesday mornings in the local town library. When I got older, I was lucky to have parents with a huge bookcase full of books that I delved into when I got older. Now, I probably read just a little bit more in the summer as the number of television programs I watch dwindles and we can hang out on the patio at night.

Do you read different types of things in the summer than you do in the winter? I don’t. I’ve always been the type of reader who just reads what’s next on the list, what might be coming out new, or the next best thing. I’ve never really understood the definition of a “summer” read. To me, most stories are good anytime of the year. Yes, I’ll even read a Christmas story in the summer.

Here’s my reading list this summer (really in no particular order):

  • No Ocean Too Deep by Leona Carver (about 60% done)
  • Unbroken Hearts by K-lee Klein
  • Tabby’s Pride by K-lee Klein
  • Always by Kindle Alexander
  • Double Full by Kindle Alexander
  • The Plantation Affair by Gregory Jonathan Scott
  • Somebody to Love by Merry Farmer
  • Love Rising by Piper Vaughan
  • Rising Frenzy by Brandon Witt

Whew! That’s a lot, but a mix of history, contemporary, and paranormal as I write Sartin, my merman story, and prepare myself to write A Life to Call Their Own, the sequel to A Place to Call Their Own.

What’s on your summer reading list? I’d love to hear!

About the Author:

With inspiration from historical tourism sites, the love of reading, and a desire to write a novel, L. Dean Pace-Frech started crafting his debut novel, A Place to Call Their Own, in 2008. After four years of writing and polishing the manuscript, he submitted it for publication and Musa Publishing offered him a contract in early 2013. Disappear With Me is his second novel.

Dean lives in Kansas City, Missouri with his partner, Thomas, and their two cats. They are involved in their church and enjoy watching movies, outdoor activities in the warmer weather and spending time together with friends and family. In addition to writing, Dean enjoys reading and patio gardening.

Prior to novels, Dean did some technical writing in his career. He plans to write sequels to both A Place to Call Their Own and Disappear with Me.

  1. Hi Dean, Like you, I don’t tend to read different things during the summer. However if I can bear to wait, I do tend to save ‘series’ for reading on vacation. I like to enjoy my marathon reading sessions on vacation where I can immerse myself in an author’s series, reading back-to-back to my hearts content.
