Those of you who know me personally, know I’m always reading something, or if I’m not I feel like a part of me is missing. I suppose my mother read to me too much as a child or something, but that’s just how I am. There are several good books coming out in the next few months which I have to read, hence the idea for this blog.
1. Let The Great World Spin by Colum McCann
I’ve had this book on my kindle for awhile and haven’t gotten around to reading it, but, it’s now on the New York Times Bestseller List. It takes place in New York City in the early 70’s-very retro and is has an interweaving plot, with several stories coming together.
2. Dead In The Family by Charlaine Harris
This is book ten in the Sookie Stackhouse Series. The HBO series True Blood is based on this series, but I began reading the series several years ago. This book is due out May 4, a must read for anyone who has enjoyed the last nine books, and wants to know more about Sookie.
3. The Millennium Trilogy Series-The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson
I put all three of these under # three appropriately, I haven’t read any of them, but after hearing a discussion on NPR about them decided I wanted to read them. They are classified as thrillers involving muder, family, drama and intrigue.
4. Burned- House of Night Book 7 by PC and Kristin Cast
Yes, I’ve read the other six House of Night Novels. Vampires, intrigue, mystery, Native American Indian foo, how could you not like them? and while I’m on this topic let’s look at # 5 shall we?
5. The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella by Stephanie Meyer
More Edward and Bella, enough said.
6. The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland & Through The Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll
I have to admit although I have seen Disney’s Alice in Wonderland animated version several times and the Tim Burton version I have never read the book, but it’s already downloaded to my Kindle and I will read it very soon.
7. The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen
I read an article about Sarah Addison Allen in The Asheville Citizen Times and had no idea until then that she is from and still lives in Asheville. I love southern writers, incorporating small-town life into their stories so I plan to read this book and if I enjoy it I’ll probably read everything else she has written.
8. Judas Island by Kathryn R.Wall
This is book four in the Bay Tanner Mystery Series. The series is a mystery series which takes place in Savannah and Hilton Head, where Kathryn R. Wall actually lives. I recently began reading the series and I like it alot. There are nine books in the series, with a tenth coming out next week.
So those are books on my “must read” list. What’s on your “must read” list of the summer? I’m sure that as time goes on I’ll be adding more to my list, as I always tend to do.
