First 3 Books of Summer

From August until the beginning of June, I focus a lot of my attention on school. I am reading, creating, analyzing, and just pushing books into anyone and every one's hands. I talk about books 12 hours a day. I am the librarian who when I am in Barnes and Noble, I go straight to the Young Adult section and see what is new. Then I will talk to teenagers who are looking and suggest books to them. (Yes, I am that crazy.) By the end of the school year, I am in need of a break...from books. This year I decided that I would take the break during May so that come June I was ready to dive right back in.

Since I have already taken my vacation, books have become my passion again, but since I am chasing my two kids around for most of the day, my reading is only happening at night.

Here is what I have been reading so far this summer:

  • The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen: This is a truly wonderful summer read. Sarah Dessen is at her finest in this book that captures the question of what happens next. Girls, grab this one!!!
  • Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card: I am almost done with this one. I was not really wanting to read it because I thought it was all science fiction. Boy, was I wrong. This is a very interesting book that I cannot wait to see on the big screen. 
  • Planet Tad by Tim Carvell: I have just started this one and I am loving it. Part Diary of a Wimpy Kid, this is such a fun boy book that anyone will love. 
As you can see, I still have a lot of reading to do, but these first couple of weeks are always about giving yourself a break, and with that done, look out!
