More information about this event can be found at Read-a-Thon Central.Day 2: List your must-have summer reading (the ones you read over and over again) or give us some of your favorite recommended summer reads.
Well, I don't really have a set book that I have to read over and over. I just usually reading anything -- but will admit lighter so called "beach reads" are awesome with toes in the sand and a drink in your hand. So I present a list of books I want to read in summer and ones I recommend.
Summer Reading I Recommend:
Catching Jordan -- This books has everything for a good summer read : football, college searching, cute boys, good friends, tomboy, and a tad bit of romance.
The Truth About Forever -- Any Dessen book that you pick up this summer will be worth the time. However, this is first Dessen book that I ever read and it remains my favorite. One word: Sawoon.
Anna and the French Kiss -- This book is just plain fun and would be a perfect fit for the beach. If you haven't read it yet, give it a chance this summer.
Rumble Fish -- This one is a bit more serious and I included it because I usually read at least one of Hinton's books in the summer. Hinton also wrote The Outsiders, and she is one of my favorite authors. This novel is a bit different, and she once wrote if you don't understand it now, then read it again when you're twenty-five.
