Anyone in need of some great summer reading? I know I am. Time for the

second annual

Readers' Choice: Summer Books series

in which all you fabulous, smart and stylish readers share your suggestions for great books to enjoy at the beach, bay, backyard or pool.

To contribute, please add the title of your book selection, a brief  note about why you recommend it and your name in the Comments section below.  I'll include your title for sale in the

Style Maniac Amazon Boutique

(as long as it's sold & delivered by Amazon directly).

Special thanks to my friend Andrea for the enthusiastic suggestion to make this an annual event. Image via
