Song of the Day: Summertime by Will Smith
The blog Paper Hangover hosts its weekly Friday Fives. This week's question:
What are your FIVE favorite summer reads?
I usually like darker fiction, so in the summer I do like to slip in a light read or two. Four out of five on my list are light reads. The last one...you'll see.
1. The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella
Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorite authors (as she is mentioned twice on my list!) Her reads are well-written and light. You will find yourself literally laughing out loud with this book.
2. Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
This one is just as funny as The Undomestic Goddess. Her books also go by really fast. You won't be able to put it down. Trust me.
3. Bridget Jones' Diary by Helen Fielding
Can you tell I have a thing for British Authors? Seriously, I LOVE Bridget Jones. If you've seen the movies you probably know her character is a little off. Don't we all feel like that sometimes? I think that's one of the reasons she's so universal.
4. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
I'm a sucker for a good love story. This love story is probably my favorite one ever, besides Pride and Prejudice of course!
5. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Okay, Jane Eyre isn't exactly a light read, but it's a classic! We tend to have more time in the summer and why not tackle a classic? The book is also a little long, so summer is a great time to read it. Jane Eyre is perfect because it has a little of everything. There's drama, romance, suspense, mystery. It's all the genres rolled into one.
I know this is Friday Fives, but I went over to my bookshelf and there is one more book that I think would make a great summer read. It's called Love, Rosie by Cecilia Ahern. It's a fun and light love story. The whole thing is written in a letter format. GREAT read.
What are some of your favorite summer reads? Any suggestions for me this summer?
