*Fifty Shades of Grey. So, despite hearing a lot of negative reviews about this book, I've decided to read it. I've requested it from the library but it might be a while since I'm number 686 of 706. Have any of you read this book? Is it worth buying or would it just be a waste of money?
*The Hunger Games Trilogy. I read all three and liked them all well enough. The third one was probably my favorite. It felt like more of an adult read than the first two. I'm not going to review them here because everyone on the planet probably already knows about them and has formed their own opinions. (As a side note: At work we sell a fake bow and arrow that's just flying off the shelves lately. I was discussing this with a customer who informed me that toy bows and arrows are 'the thing' right now because all the kids are playing Hunger Games. I'm really not sure how I feel about that.)
*The Girl Who Fell from the Sky. This was our most recent book club selection and we'll be discussing it at our meeting this Sunday. (A meeting that I hope does not go into overtime because the new season of True Blood begins Sunday. Woot! Woot!) I enjoyed this book and hope to review it here soon, but I'm still processing it all. The reviews for the books that I love are always the hardest ones to write.
*The Abstinence Teacher. I just started reading this book about a sex-ed teacher who, due to pressure from the evangelicals in her town, is now forced to revamp her lesson plans to be more abstinence driven. I've read a lot of Tom Perrotta's books and he has never disappointed.
*I found this summer reading list (via Lecia) and I immediately went to the library's website to begin making requests. Do check the list out, there are some fantastic authors on it.
*I've already read twenty three books this year. If I keep going at this pace, I'll definitely surpass last years paltry 28 books. Also, Jay read more books than I did last year and I cannot let that happen two years in a row!
