Summer Days and Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories - Stephanie Perkins
Summer Days and Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories - Stephanie Perkins

Stories by authors I've already tried and like? yes
Stories by authors I haven't yet tried but now want to? yes
Follow-up story to story in Perkins' last anthology? yes
Illustration of Cthulhu dressed as Strawberry Shortcake old style? YES
A variety of characters and loves? indeed

Let me just say that in addition to writing, Perkins sure can pick 'em.

After you've read this, and I hope nearly everyone does, do please share what you liked best.

Summer Day's and Summer Night's Book Review
Summer Days and Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories - Stephanie Perkins

Well I liked this better than the winter short stories Stephanie Perkin's put out. But there were some stories in here I just didn't enjoy that much. Being a huge Perkins fan, especially loving Anna and the French Kiss, I'm always looking for new things by her. And her short story was definitely my favorite. It's so cute and fluffy. Many of the authors I didn't recognize had similar fluffy and diverse stories as well. Veronica Rossi's was a bit disappointing and too weird. I don't care much for Cassandra Claire and have to say I still feel the same after reading her story in here.

 

I think fans of these authors and this genre will be happy with this book of cute, diverse and fun romantic stories. Its the perfect summer read.

May wasn't a terrible month, though much of my reading was continuing series I'd already started (hello Morganville Vampires and The Dresden Files). I am continuing to remain behind (and to fall further behind, apparently) on my reading challenge, and I've also been horrible about updating things here (you may have noticed?); currently trying to play "spread out the time in a rational way" and right now my life includes both actually being social and playing World of Warcraft.

 

Blame my friends, guys, for both of these terrible time sinks. ;)

 

No, honestly, I've just been lazy about things. I have started reviews for what I thought was a good dozen but which actually counting my drafts folder here informs me is 48 books; I'm not finishing them for reasons I can't quite explain. I'll need to set myself up a nice day at home with a pot of tea and no distractions and see what I can't manage to knock out. 

 

I also need to actually finish some of the ridiculous number of audiobooks I have started. I have not had any audiobooks listed in my wrap-up for months, but I am listening; I just keep stopping partway through and starting something else. My reading life is a curious thing, I swear. 

 

How did everyone else's May reading go? Do you even remember at this point? Any curious trends you noted? How is June holding up for you?
