Next time maybe i'll take the screenshots with consistent title inclusion, maybe...

I figure if you guys are coming along for this summer reading ride I should probably tell you what I think of the books, right? And there are two options on how to do that: 1) Wait till the end of the 101 days and bombard you with a barrage of book reviews or 2) Toss them out to y'all one or two at a time as I go, allowing you to not only not hate book reviews by the end of each post but also to use the reviews to advise your own summer reading (aren't I just an arrogant son-of-a-gun?). Sure sounds like the second one is the way to go, doesn't it? I thought so too.

And since I finished the second summer reading title Tuesday night, now is as good a time as any (mayhaps even better than most) for the first installment of 2010 SLtE&CtH... Summer Reading List: Reviewed. For the record, these reviews are copied from a personal library cataloging site I use and the star ratings at the end are out of a possible 5 stars.

First up: Backseat Saints by Joshilyn Jackson

And since I want y'all to get your money's worth, secondly: Cleaving by Julie Powell

...happy reading.


  1. YAY book reviews! I have a shelf full of new books to read, but Brian surprised me with Backseat Saints yesterday because I've been re-reading gods in Alabama to prepare for it - I can't wait! I'll have to check out the other book, too, since I'm in love with meat and haven't read Julie & Julia to compare it to.

  2. argh i am SO BEHIND on reading. seems like i only read when i travel these days :-\ it's almost enough to make me wish i still had a public transportation commute...!
