Summer Reading List

Friday, May 22, 2009

I have always loved to read. When I was in grade school I adored the Baby Sitters Club and Sweet Valley High series. During the summer I would join the Toronto Library's reading club where I would get stickers each week for all my reading after answering questions about the books. There was even a point where my mom thought I needed glasses because I was getting headaches all the time - but it turned out to be too much reading!

Here is a list of books I plan to read (and in some cases, review!) this summer:

  • Sleeping Naked is Green
    Okay, so I've already started reading this, but I guess that is my wishful thinking that summer is coming! I've already found myself laughing out loud and checking out some of the sites Vanessa talks about - so good!
  • Babycakes
    I borrowed this from one of my members last week and after checking it out ordered it on Amazon right away! I can't wait to try some of the recipes and I've already told Joey that we're making a stop at the bakery when we go to NYC.
  • The Writing Diet
    Julia Cameron is amazing and I had been looking at some of her books recently. One of my members recommended this to me and I can't wait to read it!
  • Ani's Food & Raw Food Desserts
    website is great and I am looking for more raw food goodness in my life especially as we head into summer!
  • The Queen's Fool
    I read The Other Boleyn Girl late last year, started watching The Tudors and then found out that I would be playing Anne Boleyn & Princess Elizabeth in a production of
    Rex in February 2010. Since being cast I've been reading tonnes of novels by Phillipa Gregory and Alison Weir and can't wait to start rehearsing for the show!
  • Bitter is the New Black
    I need some more Jen in my life.

Since I'm already 2/3 way through Book #1, I'm sure there will be others added to the list.

What are you reading? Any books on your bedside table or your Amazon wish list?

OMG! I LOVED the Babysitter's Club series. I wish I had kept all of mine in case I have a daughter.

Have you read "Jemima J" by Jane Green? I re-read it at least once a year.

Oh my god- I was the same way with Babysitter's Club and Sweet Valley High! I wish they made something similar for adults haha!
