Summer Reading List - June 6th 2009, 03:39 AM

Hey folks, what books are/will be on your summer reading list? Feel free to post recommendations, too.


Check out my blog: White-Out Blots

How did Mandela get the will to surpass the everyday,
When injustice had him caged and trapped in every way,
How did Ghandi ever withstand the hunger strikes and all,
Didn't do it to gain power or money if I recall,
It's to give; I guess I'll pass it on

I've read tooo many books since last year, so I think I'm just going to finish the book I'm currently reading Angels & Demon - Dan Brown.

I highly recommend Cut - Cathy Glass ANDDDD! Damaged - Cathy Glass
Her books are great! You won't regret buying it!

I've read that! It's really good. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Especially if you like BB.

Erm, I'm planning on reading some Jodie Picoult

I'd recommend :
If I Stay (can't remember who it's by)
Inside the mind of Gideon Rayburn (Sarah Miller)
13 Reasons Why (again can't remember)
Weighing it Up (Ali Velenzuela)

I'm currently really liking Ellen Hopkins
I read Crank last summer, just finished Impulse and am currently onto Glass.
I'm hopefully getting a job at the library this summer, so I'll get to read a lot more :] Else it'll just be whatever I pick up when I go to the library. I'm bad, judging books by their covers

The list of books I plan to read this summer is to long to post. However, I plan on finding My Sister's Keeper, and reading it. Also, that too long list, is well all the banned books xD So if it's banned, I'm going to read it.

Both VERY good books. Choke is hilarious, yet very dark. I caught myself laughing a bunch of times wondering "how am I laughing at this?" Certaintly an interesting read.

Paper Towns was awesome! I love John Green. I caught myself laughing during class while reading his books.
I have yet to read The Catcher in the Rye...so I suppose that's on my list. Other than that I don't know what I'll be reading this summer...hopefully a good variety though.

Re: Summer Reading List - June 10th 2009, 03:17 AM

Ugh. Summer reading. We only have to read two books, but are encouraged to read more.

We(upcoming 11th graders) must read one off this list. But can choose our second book from the 12th grade list or the general reading list.

  • Moby Dick (Melville)
  • A Farewell To Arms (Hemingway)
  • The Old Man and the Sea (Hemingway)
  • Walden Pond (Thoreau)
  • The Great Gatsby (Fitzgerald)
  • The Grapes of Wrath (Steinbeck)
  • Last of the Mohicans (Cooper)
  • The Awakening (Chopin)
  • Fall of the House of Usher (Poe)
  • Ship of Fools (Porter)
  • Slaughterhouse 5 (Vonnegut)
  • Uncle Tom's Cabin (Stowe)
  • Death Comes for the Archbishop (Cather)
  • Margaret Truman - Any
  • Henry James - Any
I still haven't picked. I'll probably choose whatever I find first at the library or whichever I can find for free for my Kindle. LOL

I'm already reading my second choice from the general reading list. "The Thirty-Nine steps by John Buchan. Well I'm on the first few pages. And if I still have time I'll pick a third book to read. Probably something by Shakespeare or C.S. Lewis since those are the only two on the 12th grade reading list that interest me.


We were made to be courageous.

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you're stronger, stronger than you know
Don’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

Working my way through the Barnes & Noble classics list, but I'm taking a side-trip and hitting all the Fitzgerald works I haven't already read this summer. Hopefully I'll also have time for a little Shakespeare as well.
