Nantucket Red (Nantucket #2) by Leila Howland
May 13, 2014
Hardcover, 288 pages.

What it’s about:

Nantucket Red picks up immediately where Nantucket Blue leaves off, so be sure to read start at the beginning of this series! After the events of summer, it is time to head back to school for senior year. After being accepted to Brown, Cricket needs to make as much money as possible over the summer. Nantucket is the place to be for this venture. Nantucket is a place of bittersweet memories, but also new adventures and experiences and Cricket is ready to embrace them. However, one night of living large with her best friend could have long-lasting consequences for Cricket.

Why you might like it:

Do you love a summer romance? What better place to have a summer romance than at the beach? This book will have you packing your swimsuits and heading to the ferry for a summer of island fun! Do you like a little drama with your romance? Well, things are particularly easy for Cricket in the love department. Readers will be cheering for her, but her situation appears hopeless. Are you looking for stories with characters heading to college? The transition from high school to college can be challenging and Cricket and her friends have a lot to do to prepare for their next great adventures. If you are looking for a summer read that isn’t all fluff, you will probably enjoy the Nantucket books!

random reads

Random Reads is a meme where we pick a random book from our shelf to read within the month. Feel free to do more than one per month, but since a lot of people have a lot of books to read each month, only one is “required” for the meme. I’m on Goodreads so I use my To Read list and to pick the book I’m going to read.

Last month I read The Traitor in the Tunnel by Y.S. Lee and it was wonderful.

This month I am reading a book that was just recently added to my TBR list:

The Museum of Intangible Things by Wendy Wunder, which looks like a cute road trip book, but apparently is not all light and fun. I’ll let you know!


This was #179 on my list, added March 5, 2014.

Happy Reading!
