I first wrote about Ann Brashares first book for grownups, The Last Summer (of You and Me), last year. As a big fan of Brashares' Traveling Pants series, I was so excited to read her first foray into more grown-up fare. And I wasn't disappointed. The Last Summer is now out in paperback and I have five copies to give away along with five special Last Summer beach towels! I'll choose five random winners from everyone who posts a comment on their favorite summer read of all time - the one you've never forgotten.
My favorite summer read would have to be The Thorn Birds, which I found in a house I was renting with some friends and realized I had never read. I almost devoured it in full that weekend, and was guilted into leaving it behind in the house by a super ethical friend. That Monday I scoured NYC looking for another used copy (somehow, I had to continue reading an old musty hardcover edition, new wasn't going to cut it).
I'm looking forward to hearing about all of your favorites! And for fellow Traveling Pants fans, the second movie comes out on August 6th. Check out the trailer below.
