My Summer Reading List and JOANNA PHILBEN is on it! @joannaphilbin #Giveaway

Mary's Summer Reading List 

1. Since Last Summer by Joanna Philben ( buy at Barnes and Noble)

I lloved the Daughters series. I plan on rereading the Rules of Summer since my mind seems to be broken on details lately.  

2. Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor (buy at Barnes and Noble

I bought this on auto buy -- now I just need a moment or two to get to it.  I hope I hear more from Zuzanna - one of my favorite characters.  

3. Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith (buy at Barnes and Noble

This book came highly recommended and Schatze was all over him at the LA Times Book fest.  I swear he had dog treats in his pocket.   I got mine signed, so look for a giveaway sometime this summer.

4. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (buy at Barnes and Noble

This is embarrassing that I still haven't read this one.  I am almost afraid to read it before the movie comes out because it looks so fantastic.  I always like the book better than the movie. 

5.  The One by Kiera Cass (buy at Barnes and Noble

This series turned in a something truly awesome in the second installment.  Now I just need time to get to it.  My library just got a copy too, so BONUS!  

Now to get you started on your own reading list, you can WIN a copy of Joanna' latest book:

Rory McShane should be excited to spend the summer in East Hampton with Connor Rule, her generous, smart, cute boyfriend. After all, Rory's no longer the hired help at the Rule family mansion on the beach, and she and Connor have made it through a year of long-distance dating. But now, in the months leading up to college, Rory can't help but wonder if she really belongs in Connor's world.

Isabel Rule is still trying to get over Mike, the devastatingly sexy surfer who broke her heart last summer. Enter Evan, an aspiring filmmaker who's kind, funny, and crushing on Isabel. He'd be the perfect summer fling -- so why can't she seem to forget about Mike?

Set against a backdrop buzzing with the rich, the famous, and the wannabe rich and famous, Since Last Summer, a companion novel to Rules of Summer, is the perfect beach read.
