I need your help friends!

It is officially summer vacation for me so that means more:

sleeping in,image time enjoying the sunshine,imagepicnics and barbeques,imageice cream cones (even though i like it better in a bowl i almost always get a cone because c’mon, its summer),imageand reading for fun (no more of this text book business).imageimage

Sources: bed, sunshine, picnic, ice cream, books 1, books 2

This is where you come in. I need to put together a sweet summer reading list so your suggestions are required to do that. I’ll read pretty much anything so don’t worry about that and if you like a book, or think I’d like a book post it in the comments section. I want to hear about anything and everything.

Thanks friends.


PS. I love you. Yes you.





  1. Affluenza By: Oliver James
    --I just read this! It is brilliant. It's not exactly light reading, but I learned so much about how to avoid becoming a depressed super-consumer.

    Don't know if you like fantasy at all, but if so, check out the 'Discworld' series by Terry Pratchett— start with 'The Colour of Magic'.

    I always love re-reading 'Catcher in the Rye'!

    Also, 'Soul Cravings' by Erwin McManus is definitely a good read!

    I heart reading!

  2. hey cool blog. you sound pretty unique. me and my mate abby have a blog. check us out

    we're crazy but totally cool!

  3. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer.

    It's awesome!

  4. I don't know if you've read this, but it's worth reading "Crime and Punishment" by Fyodor Dostoevsky. It can be a little bit difficult for reading, but it's a great book.

    I'm keen on mythology and epic literature. If you like it, than all Greek myths, Epic of Gilgamesh and something else will be interesting to you.

    "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Everyone probably read it, but I like to re-read this book: it's easy for perception and omg I'm always crying.

  5. John Irving is my faaaave fave favorite. I love all his stuff, but the best is "A Prayer for Owen Meany". SO great.

  6. OK, your cool. You like reading and your good with photos. I love reading. I've just finished reading the second of a trilogy. They're great and not too serious yet great. The first is called 'Gone', the second 'Hunger' and the third 'Lies'. 'Rebecca' by 'Daphne De Maria' if that's how you spell the authors name.Please write back.

  7. Have you read The Time Travellers Wife? You must! Also I love books by Danny Wallace, Join Me & Yes Man are hilarious!

  8. i agree with kara, a prayer for owen meany is one of my favourites, and to the other kara's comment, jonathan safran foer is a fanastic writer, his writing is beautiful. can't wait to hear you summer reading list.

  9. Hi :) I'm from Poland and I study russian and german languages. I'm just in love with russian literature! You should really read something by Dostoyevsky ("The Brothers Karamazov", "The Possessed", "The Idiot"...), by Tolstoy ("Anna Karenina", "War and peace"...), by Gogol, Pushkin, Lermontov...

  10. Anything by Donald Miller. He is mucho inspirado.

  11. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold is awesome, sad and beautiful.

  12. i just read 1984 for the first time, and it wasn't as you-have-to-read-this-in-school as i expected. interesting things to think about...

  13. Ah well ... so many books, so little time.
    I just finished reading The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Wells
    Very good. Very thought-provoking.
    But if you like fun, trashy, vampy, wolfie stuff, have you read anything by Kelley Armstrong?
    She's from St. Thomas, which I thought was kinda neat.

  14. Hello, just discovered your blog thanks to the 'next blog>' button -- you're cute and funny, great pics, interesting posts.

    So all these people above me are waxing poetic about the great books they've read, and I realized I am a shallow shallow person, only interested in sexy paranormal romance, haha. Not that there's anything wrong with that, right?

    So MY pick for books/author is Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series (kind of Greek mythology-ish) and Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series (valkyries, vampires and demons, ohmy!). Nothing terribly serious or thought-provoking there, just good ole fashioned lore mythology and sexy times. Enjoy!

  15. i sencond "the glass castle". and i'll raise you "water for elephants" and the james frey books. :)

  16. ok, so how about rereading pride and prejudice? And what about "Life according to Garp" J. Irving? Or "The girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by S. Larsson.
    Good luck with the list!
