well, since I finally finished my summer class, I can start doing some fun reading
so far, I have read "the boy in the striped pajamas"
the movie that came out 2 years or so ago was based on this book
very sad but very intriguing
i definitely recommend it
I'm required to read Ender's Game.
I might read some non-fiction.
And I WILL read Harry Potter. <333
The three books that stand out to me this summer are Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand (again), An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon, and Shadow Rising by Robert Jordan. I would have added A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin, butas to my knowledge it still hasn't been released. D:<
I just read Dear John yesterday/today. I wouldn't have read it at all except that Jessalinn told me to after I told her I watched the movie. The movie was okay but the book was definitely better. It still wasn't really my thing and I probably won't ever read it again, but it wasn't bad. The ending was pretty good.
I'm still reading several other books though, and I'm trying to finish most of them before I have to move to Ohio for school. :U
Here's the list (in order of importance, sort of):
> The Children of Hurin - JRR Tolkien
> Some Magic the Gathering book Abraham is making me read
> The War of the Flowers - Tad Williams
> Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
> The Name of the Wind - Patrick Rothfuss
Eh... there are more, but I don't feel like listing them all and I probably won't get around to most of them anyway... Especially since I'm leaving on August 16th. :o
I am re-reading The Vampire Lestat and i have to finish reading The History of The World In Six Glasses for school :(
Please... way too many books to love/have, way too many books to leave out. ;)
Can't have more than just one....
I've been reading a LOT this summer-13 books so far. The one I read last was Will Storr vs. the Supernatural, which doesn't do well to help me sleep at night, but is pretty fascinating. I think I'm addicted to creepy stuff like that, lol.
The best book I read this summer was Daughter of the Forest; I couldn't put it down. I love retellings of myths--this one was about the Irish tale where brothers are turned into swans by a witch, and their sister can't talk until she cures them. It reminded me that fantasy books really are my favorite genre, since it had been a while since I picked up a book like that.
The next book I'm reading is called The Only Life That Mattered, which is basically a fiction about pirates.
A couple weeks ago I started reading Rainbow Six. I've conquered only one chapter so far. I have a feeling it's going to take me forever to finish it (if I ever do).
Well, if I had a beach bag (and read as much as I wish I did), I would have to say A Clash of Kings and/or The Royal Assassin.
