I promised I have not abandoned this site. I am back!

Summer is usually a big reading season for me. This summer, however, has been quite the opposite. Numerous excuses - not feeling well, catching up with scrapbooks, and preparing to move across the country, have been most of the reasons I haven't been reading. (With the exception of children books so my boys can participate in the summer reading program at their library.)

I did manage to re-read the Twilight series while on vacation, as well as two new books that I reviewed below. If I hadn't packed my Twilight books already I might be re-reading them again right now. I am really looking forward to reading Breaking Dawn, but am sad that it comes out the first day of my almost 2000 miles drive across the western states. I hope I don't see too many spoilers before getting the chance to read it myself.

Is summer a big reading season for you? Is anyone excited - or not for Breaking Dawn? If you are excited - what are you reading now? I need some really good book suggestions to pull me out of my rut!

I have looked for Hattie Big Sky at the library but haven't been able to get my hands on it yet, I will keep trying though because it looks good. As for books, i alread posted on your other blog that I am reading great expectations and enjoying it. I have also heard amazing things about "The Shack", i don't know who it is by, some christian author. I hear that it will change your life, so its on my list to read next. I also hear that "The Brothers" is really good, its by an LDS author and sold at Deseret so i am not sure if you will be able to find it at the library, but its something to look out for.

I love your blog, it always motivates me to read more! I am trying to finish a few books and start the twilight series again. I just finished "Memoirs of a Geisha" and really liked it!
