My favorite time to get lost in a book is summer time. Because I work in a school district, summers are full of traveling, which means I have extra time for reading. I’m terrible at describing the plots, so click the links to read the descriptions. 🙂
A friend recommended Gone Girl
. It took me a bit to get into…but then I was hooked. Though I’m not too fond of the ending.
was interesting. I read it while on my honeymoon. Is it normal to be super curious about high schoolers and their lives? haha Maybe that’s why I still read young adult. 🙂
Speaking of which…
Ned Vizzini is hilarious. I downloaded this “quasi-autobiography,” about his teen years attending a prestigious school in Manhattan. I even looked up the school. Pretty sweet digs. haha
I remember reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower
in college – couldn’t put it down. Literally. I stayed up until 7am reading! Ha! Because the movie recently came out, re-reading was a must. It was my take-off/landing book [when electronics aren’t allowed]. I actually left it on the airplane when I was *almost* done! Daniel is awesome and bought me a new copy at the airport. 🙂
I love John Green so much. Paper Towns
is so well written – and the humor! I even read some lines out loud to Daniel because they were just too witty. I definitely preferred a couple of his other books [An Abundance of Katherines
, for example] to Paper Towns, but it’s definitely worth the read.
I was the most hooked on Diviners
this summer. So good! And the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. The novel takes place in the 1920s, during the Prohibition. I was reading the book in Vegas, and then happened to visit the Mob Museum. The overlap had me even more hooked. 🙂
Do you have any recommendations? I’d love to hear them!
