I'm counting down the days for my week-long vacation to California! Home of redwoods, my amazing sister Jessy, and Lake Tahoe! Assuming I have wireless access I'll still be posting but in the meantime can any of out there in internet world suggest some summer reading? One of my favorite activities, aside from exploring NYC and dating of course, is tumbling into a book that I cannot pull myself out of for hours. Though I read a great deal, it's been awhile since I've fallen in love in the literary sense. So you have a taste, here are some of my all-time favorites for summer time:
The more "serious": The Sparrow,, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, Bel Canto, Special Topics in Calamity Physics, Jonathan Strange and Mister Norrell, The Handmaid's Tale, The World According to Garp, The Virgin Suicides, Memories of My Melancholy Whores, The Things they Carried.
The less serious (and I refuse to be ashamed for loving these!) : The Time Traveler's Wife, Summer Sisters,My Sister's Keeper, The Nanny Diaries, The Devil Wears Prada.
The books that "everyone" loved and I did not:
The Life of Pi, The God of Small Things, The Kite Runner.
