Spring Read Thing 2012

Spring, also known as "mild summer," is now in full effect here in Florida.  Our highs have been in the high 80's, and the humidity, well, let's just say we all carry hair bands and such because there's really no point in trying.  The snow birds will be heading home soon, so maybe traffic will lighten up a bit.  (Sorry, I just read that last sentence and had a laughing attack.)  In reality, I want to hitch a ride with the snowbirds.  Hey--maybe they need someone to read to them full-time!  ( I come with a cat.  Will read for chocolate.  Any takers? )

This leads me to the stunning realization that Spring started on Monday (No wonder that day felt like it would never end!), which also means it's the start of the Spring Read Thing 2012!  Katrina over at Callapidder Days hosts this wonderful event each year.  If you're interested, stop by her site and read this post to learn what it's about.

Since "Senior Season" is starting soon, I figure I should keep a rather small list because I already have to schedule time to sleep or it just isn't going to happen for me.  This is what I hope to read before the blasting furnace of a season, also known as summer, starts.

Fresh-Brewed Life by Nicole Johnson

Simple Secrets to a Happy Life by Luci Swindoll

Stand by Me by Neta Jackson

Stalker in the Shadows by Camy Tang

Gravestone by Travis Thrasher

Three to Get Deadly by Janet Evanovich

My eyes are usually bigger than my time allotted, but it's always nice to dream.  What are you reading this spring?  I hope it's something fabulous!

Nice list, the only one I recognize is Janet E. I think I may have bit off more than I can read too - but I like having options.
