Summer Reading

Among my favorite things about summer months are the lack of schoolwork and the endless amount of sunshine that call me towards libraries and bookstores to no end. I will often read through an entire novel in a matter of a day or two simply because I don't wish to put it down. I think it's a bit of an addiction, actually, but I figure there are vices much worse than literature. Here's my shortlist of summer reading thus far:

What is on your reading list, my lovelies? I can't wait for your suggestions!

Have you read "Ahab's Wife"? It's a commitment at 600+ pages, but it's really good. I've never read Moby Dick, but it's not necessary. The story and most of the writing is excellent.

Oh! Also, "A Year of Wonders" by Geraldine Brooks. Soooo good!

I have recently finished Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, all in one week. Lots of sleepless nights but good easy read.

Ooh, this is great! I've been looking for some reading suggestions. I've just finished Chasing Harry Winston and the Manny, because I needed some mindless fluff. Other great ones are Pillars of the Earth, The Historian, Time Traveler's Wife.

Happy Reading!

i second june's suggestion of 'a time travelers wife'. i read it was one of madonna's favorite books so bonus if you're ever trapped in an elevator with her, you'll have at least one talking point! i'm reading chuck palahniuk's 'pygmy' right now- everything he writes is fantastic!

I just read The Dogs of Babel, and it's wonderful. A little dark, but so great!
