Splash Into Summer Blog Hop & Giveaway!


It's summer! I love summer. 
It's not my favourite season - that would be autumn - but I can honestly say from June through to December I'm in my happy place as far as time of year goes. 
Everything up to June is just... Cold and dark followed by light and wet. It's bleak and blah.
Summer is bright, warm, and happy! 
Therefore I'm going to be reading, amongst others, books from the TBR that hopefully capture the essence of the season.

Some Examples:











Giveaway:

I'm giving away a $10 amazon giftcard as part of the hop so that the winner can pick themselves up a new summer read.
