June, July, August: ahh -- the summer reads

The summer is officially nearly here, but where I live it's been summer weather for a while now, making it easy to qualify for being in summer-read mode.  Spending time looking around for what's coming out this summer, I've come upon a few that look good to me.   I have other books that could also qualify, but I'll be focusing on these titles over the next couple of months along with whatever else I already have to throw in the mix.

I'll just go make sure I have enough paper umbrellas for the foofy summer drinks now.
