I’m a huge fiction fan. My senior year in college, I took a women’s literary course to finish my English degree, and sat in the stairwell of the creative writing department and read. No one would look for me there so I could read, uninterrupted, for hours.

I loved every second of it.

Not much has changed, except now I read on my iPad and can tune out interruptions better. I read on the couch, in the hammock, in bed, while I get a manicure, on the beach, on the El, and even while I ride a stationary bike.

I have read 26 books this year and have six to recommend for your summer reading list.

Here’s my summer reading list:

11/22/63” Some of you may have already heard me praise this book. It was the first Stephen King novel I read and it was a good one to start with. The book follows the story of a man who goes back in time to stop the Kennedy assassination. He makes several attempts and you realize there is a part of you that really wants him to stop the attack. But what happens if he’s successful? It’s a long one, but it’s worth the time.
