Summer Reading List

Am I the ONLY one who put off my high school summer reading until the VERY end of summer and then I was hurrying around like a crazy person trying to read them all (i.e. buying cliffs notes and hoping that was enough to pass the test)?  Well, now that I get to pick the books, my summer reading list looks a little different:

The Help -- I started this book a LONG time ago and slowly but surely am making my way through it.  I REALLY like it, but it takes me forever to read a book...especially in the spring when I'm working a lot.  Hopefully, I'll get to read it a lot more often now that I have nights and weekends free!

Something Borrowed -- I had no desire to read this book because I've read another book of Emily Giffin's (Love the One You're With) and didn't like it.  However, I saw the preview for the movie the other day and IT LOOKS AMAZING!!!!!  I HAVE to read this book before going to see the movie!

Something Blue -- I have heard that this book is told from the "other" girl's point of view in the love triangle, so I definitely want to check it out, too!

Anna and the French Kiss -- I had never heard of this book until Caroline mentioned reading it.  I must say, I love a cheesy romance novel, so I can't wait to get my hands on it!

Sweet Valley Confidential -- I mean, really?  Does this book need an explanation?  Were you a girl who grew up in the 80s and 90s?  Then, you will be reading this book...'nuff said!

Sugar and Spice:  An L.A. Candy Novel -- After reading the first book in this series, I HAVE to complete the trilogy...also, I have a girl crush on Lauren Conrad...just sayin'...

Sweet Little Lies:  An L.A. Candy Novel -- Of course, I have to read the final book in this series...I've heard that it's the best book of the 3!

Gee whiz, it looks like it's going to be a busy summer, huh?  At least I love laying by the pool, so my Kindle should get lots of action.  Oh, also, thank goodness there won't be any End of Summer Tests either.  =)

What books are you reading this summer?  I'm always open for suggestions!

The Help is amazing. I'm reading Something Borrowed now.

Have you read Water for Elephants?
