EDITOR’S NOTE – This is part of a series featuring Salina Public Library staff and guest bloggers’ recommendations for summer reading. We hope these lists will help you find your next book!

I’ve always thought July should be designated at “Trashy Novel Month”.  Even if you can’t go on vacation,  your brain should have the opportunity to veg out. In that light, I’d recommend something light and fun like Janet Evanovich. If you’re feeling a little more warped, go with Carl Hiaasen and Tim Dorsey. If you want something with more substance you can’t go wrong with David Baldacci and Harlan Coben.
