Summer Reading

Posted on the 02 May 2013 by Missliabilities
My friend and I were tracing our fingers along the spines of books last weekend. "Did you read this?" "Do you remember this?" Turns out our childhood was filled with pages more than friends. Childhood well spent, I say. If losing a sense was down to eyesight or anything else, I'd choose anything else. How else would I continue reading?
When daydreaming about what life would be like as an adult I always had the same picture in mind. Me, sipping coffee on a chaise lounge with a cat on my lap, holding a book and interrupting my husband at intervals to point out something interesting. That was the most satisfying scene I could come up with.
Not much has changed, except that coffee gives me anxiety and I prefer wine with my novels. Classy drinks for classy girls. I recently purchased a ton of Kindle books for this summer's reading (when I can fit it in between two grad classes) to keep me occupied from M's absence.
Assholes Finish First by Tucker Max - I don't know why, I think I just want it for topic conversation.
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
Diary of a Submissive - I have avoided Shades of Grey up till now, but I am curious about why everyone is into reading about BDSM, halfway through this and still perplexed
First American, The Life and Times of Benjamin Franklin
Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick - Haven't seen the movie
The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen - Read Ape House, very very good
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
Daughter of Smoke and Bones by Laini Taylor
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
I am currently struggling through Russell Brand's My Booky Wook. Absolutely miserable.
Yesterday after watching a pretty intense fake birth in the movie A Happy Event, I told M that if I read What to Expect When You're Expecting I would definitely never want children. He told me to read it. A few years ago I read a chapter from my aunt's book and felt ill so this might be added to my reading list as part curiosity and part birth control.
What's on your summer reading list?
