Friday Fives- What I Read This Summer


What are the FIVE best books you read this summer?

1. The Harry Potter series- I loved re-reading these books in anticipation of the final movie. I know this is 7 books. I'm counting it as one.

2. Tortilla Sun by Jennifer Cervantes- It is about baseball and tortillas and family.

3. Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan- I loved this book. It was funny and sweet. I love the idea of people of the same name meeting

4. Possession by Elana Johnson- I've been a follower of Elana for a while and it was so cool to be able to read this. I like this book and kept thinking about the ending and the world of the book.

5. The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler- When I heard Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler were co-authoring a book I knew I had to read this book. This book was seriously funny.

I've got Will Grayson on my shelf right now. Need to get around to reading it!

I want to read Will Grayson, Will Grayson and I adored The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things. I tend to like Mackler's heroines in general.

I'd love to read Possession, but the others (except for HP, which I've read) sound great too. :-)

The earth, my butt... sounds so HILARIOUS!

Great list!

When I read The Earth, My Butt, and Other Round Things, I totally enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to the co-authored book too.

I too enjoyed Possession, but it doesn't sound like there is a sequel in the works. Did the book feel like it was left open for a sequel to you?

The best book I read this summer was Divergent by Veronica Roth. I couldn't put it down.

I loved Will Grayson! The Earth, My Butt is also amazing...and it has one of the only weight-challenged YA protags out there.

HP...well the amazing-ness of that series needs no further testament from me (even though I just did so anyway).
