I may be reading a few hubs here and there. Thats prolly about it. I have a short attention span and could never sit long enouph to read a book...lol
The 7th Harry Potter because I was so sad to see the last movie so I have to re-live it lol
Just finishing up Tom Rob Smith's 'Agent 6' (the final part of the Leo Demidov trilogy - started with 'Child 44'), and sadly pretty disappointed. It gets good in the latter half of the book, but the first 250 pages are pretty underwhelming, particularly in comparison to 'Child 44' or 'The Secret Speech.'
Also reading Tana French's 'In the Woods,' and while I've heard that her conclusions often leave something to be desired, I'm loving it so far. She's a phenomenal writer.
If you're looking for an entertaining summer read, Emma Donoghue's 'Room' is excellent, and certainly the best of my 'summer reads' this year (though if you're like me, you'll probably get through it in a day or two).
i just finished a really good book called "the help" it's about the black maids in 1960 mississippi. now i'm read "superfreakonomics and it's way better then i thought it would be. over the summer i will read at least 15 books so i'm not going to list them all.
Currently I'm reading George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones and I also just finished Hesitation Kills by Maj. Jane Blair, USMC.
George Martin's popular FIRE AND ICE series (on book 2). Trying to finish them all before watching the cable series.
Thanks for the ideas so far. I'm wishing to read a broader range of books, on different topics so this will be a great help for inspiring me.
Janet Evanovich ...the Plum series...I am on book three, very funny and entertaining!!!

I'm reading Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky. The story follows a number of families and individuals as they evacuate Paris in 1940 following German invasion. I am a huge fan of historical drama novels, which is why the book caught my attention. Although it did take me about 50 pages to really...
