  1. As a hobbit, I do have to say that giving other people presents is a great way to celebrate one’s birthday. (Also, cake for second breakfast is AWESOME.) When it comes to summer reading, I look for books that are out of my comfort zone–such as it’s realistic YA fiction (though that can be a bummer sometimes, with all the drama and love-triangles and why-doesn’t-anyone-understand-MEEEEE), or classic mystery authors like Agatha Christie or Dashiell Hammett. This summer, I’m leaning toward short-story anthologies, mostly because it’s a great way to discover authors I’m not familiar with.

    Let’s turn the tables: Ria, are there any books which you associate with summer reading? :)

  2. I don’t read differently during the summer–but I do read differently when I am on vacation. My taste goes to popcorn books firmly and completely. Gene Wolfe is NOT the author I want to read on a trip, for example.

  3. I read the same books no matter what the weather. I absolutely loved Moth and Spark, and have it on my Goodreads ‘need to buy’ shelf. I still have my library copy so that I can read it again!! Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy.

  4. I read more fantasy and SF over the summer, as I teach and generally am reading student essays and the like. I listen to more audiobooks over the winter months to compensate.

  5. I’m suffering genre burnout at the moment. Typically I read a lot of fantasy over the summer, but I’m falling into that realistic YA genre. During the year I can’t read as much but I read mostly fantasy then, more than I do in summer. Summer is my experimentation time.

  6. I don’t think there’s any seasonal correlation with what I read. It tends to go through phases as far as type/genre and just how much time I spend reading in general. Though when I occasionally go on vacation or a camping trip I often try to take something new and different. It seems like a good time to try and explore a different mindset.
