Summer Kickoff Feature for 2016

Guys, if you follow my blog, you know I am all about my Summer Kickoff Feature which I have been doing for the past five years! But this year it's going to be a bit different. Normally, I showcase all my beach reads/reviews during the month of May, but this year I am unable to do that. My second baby is due right around this time, so that throws a wrench in my plans.  

However, I am still going to be sharing my beach reads and recommendations with you all summer long instead. Whenever you see the header above, you'll know that I'm reviewing one of my beach reads for 2016.  I'm still going to have an awesome giveaway in May to kickoff summer, a giveaway at the end of my feature and of course I'll still share fun beach read posts.

So, I hope you'll join me in celebrating the unofficial start of summer and beach read season. Now if only the weather would cooperate! 

Here are some of the beach reads I plan on reviewing and showcasing this summer. So, keep your eye out for them:
