k. I'm going to B&N sometime this week/weekend to get some books for summer. I'm working on reading Lord of the Rings (Pelle's final request, haha) but I also want something fun and easy to read. I haven't had new books in way too long, a trip to B&N is well overdue.

So here is your tast. Please leave me a comment with a good book you've read recently (or.. whenever) and let me know what it's a little bit about, and I'll prolly buy it and add it to my summer list. I'm always looking for something new. When I'm done, I'll let you know what I think of it.

The fate of my summer reading rests in your hands :)

kathleen gave me 13 little blue envelopes, which was fantastically fun and easy. also ridiculously fun and easy are all the princess diaries books--actually anything by meg cabot, and she's written about 92837492 books so you'll definitely find something that interests you.

good luck with the lord of the rings, gyuh.

read harry potter. you'll like it.


YESSS I love telling people what they should read. Fantasticcc.

1. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart - it's about a girl at a boarding school and this secret society and it's pretty fantastic.

2. Maureen Johnson (I think Proma said 13 little blue envelopes, Suite Scarlett, etc. )

3. Actually anything by E. Lockhart although I'm still in the process of reading the rest of her books, but they're relatively short/sweet/lovely etc.

4. Have you read the Year of the Secret Assignments? I feel like someone was saying that they read that, maybe it was you blahh. There is the Murder of Bindy Mackenzie which is sort of like a spin off (?) / another book by that author which just came out in paperback. Slash also I read the ending and...haha okay.

5. The love of my LIFE John Green, obv.

6. I feel like I had a lot more book reccomendations but I totally forgot them. I'm looking at my bookshelf and everything

7. raid the children's book section. that's what I do when I don't know what to read, I LOVE CHILDREN'S BOOOKS.

(also, I wanted a list of seven the most powerful magic number)

I DID read The Year of Secret Assignments. Great book.

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. (and basically that entire series) And 13 Little Blue Envelopes was cute. It's a quick read.

Oh gahd I tried (REALLY DID) reading LotR but I couldn't do it. Good luck.

I'd recommend some books but I'm kind of lacking in that department, too. Though if you want easy, chick-flicky reads (my favourite, haha), you should def. read anything by Meg Cabot. Also idk if you've read Bergdorf Blondes by Plum Sykes, but I love that, too, so you should try it. It's pretty old, though. And I've heard Sarah Dessen is good for stuff like that, too, but I have only one book by her and haven't gotten more than five pages in, so I'm not really sure.

I'm just reading a book now called "Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card. I love it. It's science fiction, but not nearly as difficult as "Brave New World" by Alduous Huxley. It's got one HECK of a heart. It comes highly recommended and it's actually about children, in the future, the brightest of the best who are taken from Earth by the military and trained from the age of 5 or 6 to become the future warriors of humanity, protecting them against an alien invasion which has happened once before nearly destroying everything. But like I said, it's about heart, and emotions, and the main character and supporting characters are all VERY amazing.
