What are YOU reading?

I asked this question on Facebook last night.  I finished the Game of Thrones series (excellent!) so I needed something new to read.  The only books on my nightstand are education-related books and I am NOT reading those during the summer!  I'm a self-admitted book freak who must have at least 8 books in her library queue to look forward to and, right now, that queue needs some filling! 

Turns out I'm not the only book freak out there!  Take a look at this great list!

  1. LOVED The Help! Can't wait to see the movie (and read the book again!) And I'm not an avid reader. I also loved Firefly Lane... I love to read about local places. I read another one of hers last fall and plan to read more of hers.

    Hope you're enjoying your summer! If we ever stay above 70? These dang clouds need to LIFT because this girl is NOT cut out for humidity! YUUUCK!!!! :)


What say ye?
