Summer 2013 Reading List

Summer Reading 2013

A short list this time:

Divergent (Veronica Roth)
All These Things I've Done (Gabrielle Zevin)
Shine (Lauren Myracle)
Delirium (Lauren Oliver)
The Legacy (Katherine Webb)
Between Shades of Gray (Ruta Sepetys)
Insurgent (Veronica Roth)

I don't know if I should blame Pinterest or what, but I didn't read as much this summer as I usually do.  All of the books except The Legacy are ones I read for school...I enjoyed Divergent and Insurgent (hailed as the next Hunger Games) and look forward to reading the final installment in the trilogy when it comes out in October.  Between Shades of Gray was probably the best book I read this summer--I had no idea that a number of educated families were taken by train from their homes in Lithuania to work in labor camps in Siberia prior to Hitler's invasion of that country.  I'm back at work now and students begin on Wednesday.  Once I get acclimated to the early mornings and mental and physical exhaustion of the first couple of weeks, I hope to get back to some good books...

Hello Hayley -
I've enjoyed reading your posts, but have experienced problems commenting on my ipad. So, I'm commenting on my laptop at work. I just didn't want you to think I hadn't been reading! :)
This summer has flown by. I really thought it would be a lazy and relaxing one, but it didn't really turn out that way. We just returned from a week at the beach with Jordan, Tiffany & Sophia. It was glorious in every way. Our little Sophia is a very happy beach girl!
Keep posting!
I love you,
Aunt Karen
