Summer Reading List

7.08.2010 WRITTEN BY Ashley Just for Fun

One of my favorite things about summer is that I finally have the down time to read for pleasure. No more textbooks, no more online readings, just me and a good book. This summer (well now that I am officially a college graduate I guess I can read whenever, but anyways…) I have compiled a list of books that I want to read.

1. Eat Pray Love

by Elizabeth Gilbert

I have already tried reading this book, however I only got about a third into it before school started back up. So, the other day I picked it up in hopes of reading it before the movie comes out (starring the ever-fabulous Julia Roberts). I love that this book is about self-indulgence and desire.

2. Water for Elephants

by Sara Gruen

Again, I have heard about this book before but what really made me want to read it is that they are filming the movie right now. Okay, what really truly made me want to read it is that RPattz is going to be in it, and let’s be honest, I am only 22-years-old so I am allowed to be on the RPattz train…

3. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

I have heard really amazing stuff about this book (which is the first book in a trilogy) so I picked it up the other day. Unfortunately it was hard to get into so I put it down and replaced it with Eat Pray Love (I figure I should read it first since I am on a deadline…). BUT I fully intend on picking it up again and powering through the somewhat slow beginning.

4. The third book in The Hunger Games series

The Hunger Games is a series that I began reading a little less than a year ago. I could ramble about it for hours, because it is a really good story, but I won’t go there now. Anyways the third and final book in the trilogy comes out in August and I CANNOT wait! I even have a little countdown ticker on my computer for it (NERD, I know), and i am contemplating rereading the first two books in preparation.

So, what books are on YOUR summer reading list? The best beach/pool accessory is a good book (and some SPF!)
