What Books Are You Reading?

What are you guys reading right now?  Not what are you reading to your kids, or books about parenting.  I mean something just for you.

I’m looking for some new books for the summer.  Maybe even some new authors!  Any recommendations?

I’ve been re-reading the Hunger Games.  I’m so impressed by her ability to describe this imaginary world!  I like her Underland Chronicles Series as well for some lighthearted reading. And of course I’m always re-reading The Harry Potter Series, The Lord of the Rings Series, and The Narnia Chronicles.

Here’s my top 5 recommendations for the summer…

  1. The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien (my favorite author of all time!)
  2. The Gunslinger by Stephen King (second favorite- and an engrossing series)
  3. Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry (long, but an easy and fun read)
  4. The Gone Away World by Nick Harkoway (son of John LeCarre. He has a new one that’s on my list for this summer!)
  5. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain (another favorite since I was 9)

Please share some of your favorites in Comments.  I can’t wait to hear what you love, and to find something new to read!
