more summer reading
SUMMER is in full swing…well sort of.  In NYC we’ve been tackling the vicissitudes of torrential downpours on some days and hot, hazy, and humid weather on other days.  The weather has been as varied as the books on my summer reading list: controversial, classic, romantic, fantasy.  My reading list usually includes 6 categories.  However, I’ve added another category:  fantasy.  With my growing interest in HBO’s “Game of Thrones”, I figured I should indulge more in fantasy/sci-fi books.

Here’s my summer reading list:

  1. Writing Inspiration: Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott
  2. Controversial (books that faced banishment at one time or another): Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
  3. Oldies, And Goodies (classic novels): Candide by Voltaire
  4. Dear Friend (usually a book that I’ve already read, but loved so much that I reread it): Lost in the City by Edward P. Jones
  5. Something New (recently published book with/without buzzing reviews): Gone Girl
    by Gillian Flynn
  6. Pink Martini (novels that are romantic, yet complex): The Pretend Wife by Bridget Asher
  7. Fantasy/Sci-Fi: The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (I’ll read this lengthy series last because it’ll keep me busy well past summer)

What’s on your summer reading list?
