Summer Reading List

Posting my list of plans for the summer made me also get in gear planning my summer reading list! I may not get through all of these, especially considering a couple of them I'm just giving a shot because they keep popping up on my Amazon recommendations. I'm guessing it's because I like Twilight and The Hunger Games and A Discovery of Witches. Anyway, here's my list!

The Me I Want to Be by John Ortberg
I've been trying to get through this one for a while now & I'm planning on actually just making myself sit down & read it this summer! Every time I started to read it, I liked it, I just get busy & don't read it for whatever reason.

Outlive Your Life by Max Lucado
I'm reading this one because Donald Miller suggested it & that always makes me interested!

Boundaries with Kids by Henry Cloud and John Townsend
I read their book, Boundaries, last year when I was doing counseling for some family stuff. It was absolutely amazing & I want to read this one to get some similar strategies for parenting & helping kids develop their own healthy boundaries as well!

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
This book just keeps coming up as a recommendation for me on Amazon and so I figure it's time to give it a shot.

Marked by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
This is another one that has come up as a recommendation for me and I keep seeing it at Target and Wal-Mart. I feel like that makes it seem really popular, so I'll try this one as well.

Fallen by Lauren Kate
Another recommendation one. Just gonna check it out.

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
This one was given to me by my friend's aunt to read. She said she thinks I'll like it because I liked Twilight and The Hunger Games. I guess we'll see!

The Secret Circle Series (The Initiation, The Captive Part I & II, The Power) by L.J. Smith
This is the author of The Vampire Diaries. I wasn't crazy about her books as much as the show, but now this second series of hers is being made into a show on the CW next season! I thought I should read the books to see if I like it!

I would love some recommendations from you all!! Even though this list is very vampire/werewolf/supernatural packed, I like other books, too! I read Nicholas Sparks and I discovered last year that I like Emily Giffin & Sophie Kinsella! So I'll take any suggestions!
What are you reading this summer?

Sounds like a great line-up Cameron. Enjoy the summer! I pretty much read blogs these days ;)

I'm still trying to find the time to re-read last year's Charlaine Harris installment of the Sookie Stackhouse series, before I read the recently released one I've waited all year for. I've just been busy, busy busy. If you haven't read the series, I'll tell you now, the books are much more tasteful and just all together better than the True Blood HBO Series.
I love love the supernatural/fantasy Genre. I'm familiar with some of the book on your list and I'll definitely check them out after getting thru these two. Thanks for sharing your list.
