Summer Read


Bloggers and bloggets please advise.... I need a good summer read, preferably a mindless novel that will take me away from reality just enough to convince me that not taking a summer vacation is the way to go. What have you been reading? Tell me. Tell me.

  2. -Water for Elephants by Sara Gruin
    -Plain Truth by Jodi Picult
    -17 minutes by Jodi Picult.
    -The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
    -A thousand splendid suns by Kahlid Husini or something like that
    - Princess Acadamy. Goose Girl. Enna Burning. All by Shannon Hale
    - A long way Gone by Ishmale Bahem I think

    These are all really good reads. I am a member of Shelfari and it has all the books I have read and the ratings.

  3. I gotta say that the Jodi Picoult books are great. I've read most all of hers, my favorite being, "My Sisters Keeper".

    Harry Potter?

  5. Hey Lindy! Thanks for the comment!

    Oh yes, if you haven't read "Time Traveler's Wife," read it before the movie comes out this summer!

    I also LOVED "The Glass Castle-" amazing!

    Other favorites:

    + "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn"
    + "The Book Thief"
    + "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close"
    + "Harvesting the Heart" (this is also Jodi Piccoult- I've read some of her other books and didn't love them, but LOVED this one.)

    I could go on and on- keep us updated of what you read and enjoyed!
