Summer Reading

I love to read. During the school year I find it hard to muster up the energy to read very much. I mostly fall asleep the second my head hits the pillow. During the summer, however, I become a reading machine. I don't necessarily read classics or anything to terribly intellectually challenging, but instead enjoy getting lost in a easy to read story. So, I thought I'd share my list with you, in case you are looking for a last-minute beach/going-tobed read.

1-Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling(re-read after seeing the 6th movie; soooo good; had forgotten most of the story since i power-read it when it was first released)

2-Vision in White by Nora Roberts (first in a series of novels about a wedding planning business; super cute)

3- To Have and To Hold by Jane Green (easy read, somewhat sad seeing that it is based on a cheating husband)

4-Love, Rosie by Cecilia Aherns (suggested here; really sweet story about childhood friends-boy & girl- and their lives as adults)

5- PS. I love you... by Cecilia Aherns (might've seen the movie; again, easy read; emotional)

6- Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah (not quite finished with this one; story of middle school friends and their 30 year friendship)

7-My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult (amazing read; incredibly emotional)

8- Chasing Harry Winston by Lauren Weisberger (like her other novels, not terribly deep at all but still an entertaining story about friends and lovers)

9- Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Nifenegger (thought-provoking, very emotional, probably my favorite read of the summer)

Currently Reading: Julie & Julia by Julie Powell

Now tell me, what's your favorite book from this summer?

Right now Im reading The Little Giant from Aberdeen County. It is great! It too is a pretty easy read and a story line that is just a little off from reality.

Thats a great list, btw!

1, 5, 7, and 9 are all incredible reads. :) I'm making my way through The Time Traveler's Wife for the second time right now, and loving it every bit as much as the first time.

Next up is one called "Cat's Eye," by Margaret Atwood. ;)
