Summer reading list.

My book club (that sounds like I own it, I don’t) is meeting next weekend, and our book this month was choose your own and tell the group about it. I wasn’t sure what I was going to read, and on Memorial Day, I stocked up at Halfprice Books in the clearance section. Below is the list of what I got, broke down by if I have read it or not.

Read:

One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell-So so book. She mentions the filming of Sex and the City, which I find a little tacky since she wrote the book the series is based on.

American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld-I really enjoyed this book. It is inspired by a first lady (Laura Bush) and you got totally see the president being George W. The author also wrote Prep which was a really good book as well.

Bel Canto by Ann Patchett-I have seen this book in stores for years, and had tried reading something by the author before and hated the writing style. This book is about a group of terrorist and hostages and how they interact while stuck in a house in South America. If you like, books with many characters, you will like this book I know that I did.

To Read:

Until I Find You by John Irving-I used to read a lot of his stuff, but have not in many years. (Good old John is to old school to have a website I guess)

Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult-Again an author I have read a lot of.

Summer at Tiffany by Marjorie Hart-Memoir of a lady that was one of the first saleswoman at Tiffany’s in New York.

Babyville by Jane Green-Easy chic-lit.

Jane Austen: A Life by Claire Tomalin-You guessed it, a book about Jane Austin’s life.

Currently I am reading The Given Day by Dennis Lahane which is so far doing nothing for me.


What is on your summer reading list?

I read "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy (same guy who wrote "No Country for Old Men") great book. very sad. reminds me of Mad Max and Children of Men.

Currently reading "The Eight" sort of a feminist version of the Da Vinci Code but has some humorous quips.
