Summer Reading List Continued

Yes, I'm still finishing Harry Potter. And yes, I know, I only have ten days until the final movie comes out so I better hurry it up already.

Yes, I still have three books to finish from the CIO. Yes, the one I have read from him is A. May. Zing. I love checklists, process, and medical stories. Plus, did you know that one of the reasons the twin towers actually collapsed the way they did was because the metal wasn't fire proof and when that happens, it becomes like melting plastic...so now all buildings are sprayed with fire proof elements? It's very interesting.

But, all of that aside, I have a few, fun, silly books that I really really want to read before I start school again (if I'm lucky enough to be accepted...cross your fingers, I still haven't heard!). So here they are...have you read any of them?

First, one of my favorite quick, just for fun reads is the series by Janet Evanovich. It starts with One For The Money and has continued through Smokin' Seventeen (with some holiday books in between!). Ms Evanovich is just brilliant for having one of these fun books come out each summer - it's one my favorite summer traditions.

I know I'm one of the last to jump on this bandwagon, but I'm excited to read the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins as soon as possible.

And just now I was reading one of my favorite author's blog and saw some of her suggestions. So besides getting excited about reading her new book, If You Were Here (which I mentioned earlier in my blog but in case you forgot: http://www.jennsylvania.com/jennsylvania/2011/07/summer-reading-list-july-edition.html), I can't wait to try these two suggestions.
