Win your #SummerEscapes

This weekend, I read three books in two days. Feels like summer to me! Once summer arrives, there’s nothing quite like relaxing outdoors (ideally by a pool) in the sunshine with a great book. Even if you’re facing a long drive, like I was this weekend, there’s something about a few good books coming along for the ride that makes it so much better. Before I set off to Niagara on a shopping adventure, I stacked my Kobo with some books I’d been meaning to read and burned through them all before the weekend was over. #winning


My friends at HarperCollins Canada happen to think books are the perfect #summerescapes as well (go figure). This summer, they’re encouraging book lovers everywhere to take a little time for themselves and indulge in a little escape – you know, vacation, relaxation, shopping, reading…or all of the above! That’s a mission I can get behind.

To facilitate your very own #summerescapes, they’re featuring five summer reads on their website that I can’t wait to get my hands on:

  • Hidden by Catherine McKenzie
  • J’adore Paris by Isabelle Lafleche
  • My Life in Black and White by Kim Izzo
  • Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich (HarperUS)
  • About a Girl by Lindsey Kelk (HarperUK). (remember that time I met Lindsey Kelk?! What a sweetheart.)

When you visit, you can read all about the books, check out exclusive content from the authors or download a free e-book sampler, featuring excerpts from all five titles (a bit of a tease, if you ask me ;)).

I’ve teamed up with HarperCollins Canada to offer you the chance to win all five of these summer titles!
