Summer Reading

I have a Vera Bradley e-reader cover in "Night & Day" which matches all of my beach / pool accessories but I'm totally loving this hot pink terrycloth one specifically for the beach. Good Lord! I'm such a sucker for accessories and love bags like this. I love bags with a purpose and love to be organized when I travel.

I'm kind of at a standstill with my Nook and I'm looking for a book to really grab me. I read The Hunger Games trilogy this summer and I'm looking forward to the movie. I read The Help a while ago, another movie I'm looking forward to. I read Unbroken this summer and thought it was quite simply one of the most amazing books I have ever read. I also was into Ken Follet this year (Fall of Giants). I read Sarah's Key a while ago and noticed that it's now in film. I've also seen ads for One Day with Anne Hathaway but never had a chance to read it. I'm a little confused though by the commercials I've seen for What to Expect When You're Expecting. I have no idea how they can possibly take what has easily become the go-to book for pregnant moms everywhere and turn it into a 90-minute movie.

I'm a big believer in "there's no such thing as a bad book" but let's face it. Some books capture your attention more than others.

A couple of books that keep appearing on everyone's "summer must read" lists are: Jennifer Weiner's Then Came You, The Paris Wife by Paula McLain about Ernest Hemingway and the woman who would eventually become his first of four wives, The Gap Year by Sarah Bird, Conquistadora by Esmeralda Santiago, and Sister by Rosamund Lupton (I think this may be my next Nook purchase).
