7th Annual Summer Kickoff Feature

If you have been following me these past few years, you know that I am all about my summertime reads so much so that I have made it a fun feature at Confessions of a Book Addict. This is my 7th (!!) spring/summer showcasing the best beach reads around and I am so excited to get started this year.  After this never-ending winter here in PA, I am all about some warm weather, sunshine, a cocktail, and a good book.  Who is with me?

My Summer Kickoff Feature has changed over the years, but here's what you can expect this time around. I'll be sharing my favorite beach reads for summer 2018 and you'll know, because I'll have this header above my review.  By the time 4th of July hits, you will, hopefully, have a good list going of some great books to throw in your beach bag, take with you to the pool, or bring with you on vacation.  I'll also be hosting many giveaways during this feature, so keep your eye out for them!
