Here in England, it’s officially Summer. That means hot and hazy days at the beach, ice creams, and barbecues (or, more likely, it means unpredictable rain showers, traffic jams and sun burn when you haven’t even been in the sun that much).

But one of my favourite things about Summer?

All that time to read!

For some reason, there is always more time for a good book in the Summer. Whether you’re jetting off to sunnier climes for a couple weeks, kicking back on your summer holidays after your exams, or just nipping to the park on your lunch break, there is always time to get reading.

Which is why, for the month of June, House of Blog will be running a month-long books bonanza: the Summer Reads!

There will be book reviews galore, as well as extra special features (which will remain under wraps for now – but trust me when I say they’re very exciting!) Plus, if I find time amongst reading all those lovely books, there will be author profiles so you can get to know some of the biggest and best authors around.

Keep your eyes peeled for reviews from the Housemates too, and head over to The Library for the whole month of June for the Summer Reads special.

If that’s not enough and you want to get involved and share your own Summer choices, join in with us on the Facebook page, and use the hashtag #HoBSummerReads on Twitter to tell us what you’re reading and what you think we should be reading.
