Almost summer

As you may know, I live in Houston. And it feels like summer already here! With summer, come thoughts about what to read. So, here are a few books I’ve read lately that I’ve loved! Please post what you’re looking forward to reading (or may have read lately). I’d love to hear your recommendations!
I’m very fond of Adriana Trigiani these days. I first discovered her at Tri-Cities Airport while working in VA. I’d just driven past Big Stone Gap, VA, and there in the airport was a book with the same name. Just had to check it out and loved it! They’re making it into a movie now.
When we were in Richmond, VA in March, we visited an independent bookstore that had a big poster of her latest, Very Valentine. She had recently been to that store and had autographed books. So, I bought a copy. And am I ever glad I did. I love the main character, Valentine, who lives in NYC with her grandmother. They make custom wedding shoes for a living. NYC and shoes. Who can resist that combo? I laughed. I cried. It was a great read! Then I had to read Bravo, Valentino. Another great read in the same series.
What are you reading? Let us know!
