Summer Reading :)

This is my current list of the top twenty books to read over the summer - it gets altered quite frequently as I acquire more books (and according to my whims; I have over 500 books marked TBR on LibraryThing now), and who knows if I'll be able to read all of them or not.
I'll keep updating this post as I read the books.

So, what books are you guys looking forward to?


  1. clockwork orange is one classic that sticks with me. great one.

  2. I have heard about the true story that The Year We Were Famous was based upon. That one sounds wicked good!

    A Clockwork Orange would be a funny one to contrast back-to-back with that one, wouldn't it?!
