Summer Reading List

I have to say, I love a good book.  I read mostly romance novels, trashy, I know, but entertaining.  This summer started out weird for me.  I am reading Twilight.  My almost eleven year old girl wants to read it and I was not familiar with it, except that every pre-teen girl in America is obsessed with it.  So I borrowed a copy and started to read it.  I am about 2/3 done with it and it's okay.  If I were thirteen I would probably think it was the best thing since sliced bread, but I am forty-two and it's a pretty good book for a teenager.

As I look back on my reading list this year it is quite eclectic.  Fasting by Jentezen Franklin would be on the top of my list.  If you are a Christian who is looking for a way to open up your faith life, open up this book.  I have also read Saturdays with Stella by Allison Pittman.  What a great view of our walk with God.  I have read Nora Roberts first book in her new quad series, A Vision in White.  Finally, she is back to romance without vampires or someone dying every other chapter.  Although, I am reading Twilight, it is totally different vibe, can't really explain it, but it is.  I re-read many Nora Roberts trilogies involving Irish and love and all that jazz.  Love it.  She writes well, I just don't like her creepy stuff.

I read my bible every day.  It is the one book I could not live without.  If I was on a desert island, and could only have one book, it would be my bible.  I would need a pen or pencil too, as I frequently write and underline stuff in my bible.  I do like finding a passage I have underlined with dates and realize I have been through something that God brought me through.  Amazing.  I laugh, I cry, I cover it all.  What an amazing love story, the bible.  It angers me when someone uses their bible as a weapon.  It is a love story, the best one ever told.

So, what is on your reading list this summer?  What do you like or dislike?  Have you been sucked into the Twilight chaos?  Let me know and share the love.

God bless you and yours.

No Twilight chaos for me. Anne Rice did it up right when it came to vampires and her books on the witches, they kind of intersect too. Stephen King tops my list. I read to just get away, so pretty much any book I can get my hands on I like. I don't do the romance thing, but love Nora Roberts. I am currently reading "beautiful boy", it's a true story from the fathers side of his son's drug addiction.

I have that book, can't open it because of Dale, oh well, maybe someday.

I love Christian historical, modern or mystery, just so it does not have curse word and sex in it. I am a Christian and hear enough of that in the real world so I don't like to read about it.
