Read, Read, Read?! Maybe.

It's again that time of year when reading becomes part of my daily commitment.
Yes, granted...during summer I should be doing something else, like spending more time outsite with friends (yeah I guess that's never going to happen over here!), or walking on the beach (none over here!), enjoying the sun (hello, where is she?), or just enjoying life to the fullest. I wish I could go to the zoo, or walk on the pier, or go out with girls and have fun shopping one afternoon long, or go out and eat at some cool restaurant, etc etc. Yes, I'm pathetic. Totally. At least I can dream. 

But back to the book part...this awful spring/early summer makes me read more and buy more books. Ha! I have a huge stack of books waiting for me to be read. Don't know where to start. I can't read more than one book at a time. I could months ago...not sure what happened. here are a few of my books waiting to be read hopefully over the summer (that is, if I'm not going to be distracted much by TV shows, shopping, and possible job and school hunting).

These are just a few books waiting for me. I have a ton more, but need to get through these first.
Any suggestions for me? Any good reads you wanna share with me, so I can read them too?! I'll be more than thrilled to know what you think and all. Let me know. Please. And just for the record, I do read everything (except for - and now I'm sorry for everyone that does - Twilight Series, or the Sookie Stackhouse Series or so. I've read the Sookie Stackhouse ones so don't get me wrong, but I'd rather watch the shows/movies.) But yes, I do read everything...old, new, girlie, serious, sad, real, if you've got anything you want me to read or highly suggest let me know and I'm trying to find it and read it and all. :) Thanks a lot!

Happy Monday everyone.

Hey there,
I can hear you girl. It's the same here. But the sad part is that I have not many spontaneous friends to hang out with:( Everyone always seems to be busy with their guys and whatever. Aarrgh...seriously,so annoying.
I've just read the book "I remember you" by Harriet Evans.I love the cover :) and the book was nice.
I'm curious if your books will be good. They look interesting.

These are great suggestions! I am in the market for new books myself. I recently read "Half Broke Horses" and loved it. I've also heard that "History of Love" is good, too!

I can't wait to read the Carrie Diaries! If you've never read a series called The Sweet Magnolia's then I HIGHLY suggest it! It's written by a woman named Sherryl Woods and they're really good. Just make sure you read them in order because they build on each other.

oh those sound good! I have such a long book list right now. I just need more time to read

OceanDreams said...

That's a great book list and I have a few of those books, I better get reading! :) Glad you are going to make some time to read too.

Those sound really good. That first one drew me in, I'll have to read it. I seem to go through periods where I don't read a ton and then I'll be reading like 3 books at once and devour them all. It's weird. Umm, have you read the girl with the dragon tattoo series? I love that one. Are you on good reads? I look looking on there for good book ideas.

I've been reading a lot this past week. I'm currently reading Do You Come Here Often? by Alexandra Potter which I must have had for about two years and never picked up - really enjoying it. This week I've got through 'Since You Were Gone' by Louise Cavandish I think it was, and also Salem Falls by Jodie Picoult which I loved! Strangely enough the book I read before that was 'The Lost Book of Salem' which was a fiction story about the witch trials but it was all base on truth - I really enjoyed it.
