3 Books That Make Me Long for Warmer Weather

Local forecasts call for sunny weather in the 70s for the next 2 weeks, but Lost in Books wants to turn the heat up! These three books made me hot:

1. "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood" by Rebecca Wells - There's this part where the Ya-Yas are so hot they go swimming in the water tank. I love that part and this book!
2. "How Stella Got Her Groove Back" by Terry McMillan - A woman escapes her man problems by going to Jamaica, where she meets a local hottie (way better than the movie...I guess that goes without saying)
3. "Seaside Style" by Diane Dorrans Saeks - This is a photography book which has pictures of beach houses (inside and out) from places all over the world like Brazil, Tahiti, Mexico, Greece, and Australia.

P.S. Pink Truck is by Samuel Ribeyron.

I almost put Stella on my list. That book just radiates heat! I'm with you on Ya-yas too. I love the scene where the heat is so overwhelming they decide to go for a swim in the water tower. Here's to hoping winter ends soon!

Great choices! I haven't read the book but I saw the movie How Stella Got Her Groove Back, as well as the Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Both are excellent for longing for warm beaches and sunny days.

I was too cold to do the meme this week. LOL! You chose some great ones that do make me long for warmer weather though!
