Summer Reading

Any suggestions of what you're taking to the beach this year? I'm always on the lookout for something good for the train.


I just finished Second Glance - by Jodi Picoult. Awesome historical fiction about a vermont town with ghostly behavior that traces back to the Vermont eugenics Project. Actually - I've enjoyed all her books.

I just finished Wicked by Gregory Maguire. It was a pretty good read.

I read this book about a year ago - very good, but heartbreaking.


One of my favorites too for an easy read, is The Nanny Diaries.

Really good book. Have you read her other book called Lucky? It's her memoir. So sad...

I'm about halfway through that-It's good! Then I'm starting Notes from the Underground by Dostoevsky, The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri and then the sixth Harry Potter. For school I have to read All The Kings' Men, by Robert Penn Warren and Song of Solomon, by Tony Morrison and The Hero With A Thousand Faces, by Joseph Cambell.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is fantastic! It's not just for teenagers, lol.

There's also Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden.

Memoirs of a Geisha - how could I forget that? Quite possibly my favorite book ever. I felt like crying when I finished it because I had nothing more of it to read!
