A mojito goes nicely with this week’s topic . . .
The topic for this week’s Ten on Tuesday came from my dear friend The Knitigator. It’s quite appropriate as our summer reading program starts at the library this week, too. Here we go with 10 Books on Your Summer Reading List.
- The Girl Who Play With Fire by Stieg Larsson. Having just finished The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, I’m anxious to read the 2nd novel in the series.
- The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson. I’m sure I’ll want to read this as soon as I finish with #1.
- The Things That Matter: What 7 Classic Novels Have to Say About the Stages of Life by Edward Mendelson. I read about this on my book lover’s Page-a-Day calendar and I’m intrigued.
- Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich. There’s nothing quite like reading a Stephanie Plum book while on vacation.
- A Touch of Dead: Sookie Stackhouse, the Complete Stories by Charlaine Harris. I just can’t get enough of Sookie.
- Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith. Dale read the Abraham Lincoln one and said it was pretty good and I think it’s high time I read this version of my favorite novel.
- Women, Food and God by Geneen Roth. This one is on my nigh stand right now. I’ll admit I’m a bit afraid to read it.
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Because it’s been 50 years since it was published and it’s a book that can be read over and over again.
- The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender. I read about this one when I was skimming some book reviews and I think the idea behind it – the main character can literally taste the emotions of whoever prepares her food – is really interesting.
- Innocent by Scott Turow. Summer is a great time for a legal thriller.
I am looking forward to reading everyone else’s lists – I’m always looking for something good to read! Don’t forget to add your link below.
