Today I’d like to welcome, Natalie Wright, to my blog today for the Summer Teen Reading Party
Thank you, Emerald, for having me as a guest on your blog today. The Summer Teen Reading Party is in full swing! I’ve picked up some reads to take on my trip this summer. How about you?
So many books, so little time! Summer reading to me is about fun. Thrillers, science fiction, mystery and of course romance.
One of my favorite types of summer book are action adventures. I’m a huge fan of the hero quest. I haven’t often found ones I like with girl heroes instead of boys – so I wrote one!
In my first novel, Emily’s House, Emily answers the call to action and must go on a quest to find a magical object (an ancient Celtic golden arm bracelet called a torc). Her quest takes her and her two best friends to Ireland. They are three 14-year-olds on an adventure sans parents or grown ups. Now that’s what I call adventure!
Emily’s adventure takes her to the rolling hills of Ireland, full of green grass, ancient stone walls, and the occasional cow pie (how do you think those hills get that vibrant color? It’s not just rain you know!). Along the way friendships are tested and strengthened, and Emily learns a thing or two about herself – and her world.
What about you? Do you have any great adventures planned for this summer?
Even if we don’t take a trip or seek a new adventure, we can live adventure (and romance and mystery and anything else) through books! That brings us back to the fabulous Summer Teen Reading Party where fun reads abound at summer sale prices with great prizes thrown in for good measure.

From Kirkus Reviews: With her two best friends by her side and her mother’s memory in her heart, a teenager undertakes a journey to save the world from an ancient evil.
Emily Adams has always known she’s special. Throughout her whole life she’s had visions of things that haven’t happened yet and she could always read her mother’s mind. At least, she could until her mother died. Emily thinks her abilities are just about gone, but the arrival of a strange creature in her backyard one night proves otherwise. Emily discovers she is the last of the Order of Brighid, an ancient society of women sworn to protect the portal to the Netherworld. Now, with the portal under attack, it’s up to Emily and her two loyal, wisecracking friends to stop a villainous man before his actions destroy the world.
Natalie Wright spent her formative years growing up on a farm in Ohio. It was a fertile environment for an active imagination and inquisitive mind. She is, however, a city girl at heart and now finds inspiration in her travels and in the desert environment of her home in Tucson, Arizona, where she lives with her husband, daughter and her dog Molly.
