My summer reading list

Water for Elephants by Sarah Gruen

There’s nothing quite like a good book, with good writing, well-developed characters, and a great story, to get my creative juices flowing. The more I read, the more I want to write. It’s a little reminder how effective the written word and one’s imagination can be. I just finished Water for Elephants by Sarah Gruen (was a little disappointed in the movie though). I’m also the nerd who reads every bit of the book and found the “Author’s Notes” at the end very interesting; fascinating to read about her inspiration behind the book and how she gathered her information.

Here’s a few more on my summer reading list:

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold (also wrote Lovely Bones)

-reread a favorite; Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt

Listening in an Act of Love Storycorps

-The Corrections by Johnathon Franzen

    We definitely need to figure out how to start up our book club! I have CP1 this summer which is a lot of reading, but my summer list so far has included David Foster Wallace’s The Pale King. An unfinished work, but brilliant!

    Yes, we definitely need to start our book club. I just purchased The Help and Corrections to take with me to Montana. I’m taking Music Theory this summer so I figured I won’t be overwhelmed by reading for school. Nothing beats a good book.
