Weekend Reading List

I am so looking forward to a long weekend to cuddle up with my Kindle and read a good book.  I had a first generation Kindle that died last week and, after a very good experience with Amazon.com customer service and a $40 fee,  I just received my new smaller, lighter, third generation replacement!  I had not realized how much I used my Kindle, and relied on it for entertainment, until it decided to go belly up.  I charged it and am now deciding which book to start first.


I have heard so much buzz about The Hunger Games that I am curious to read it and find out what all the talk is about.  As much as I loved the Twilight and  Harry Potter series, I am not sure that I am ready to commit to a trilogy this weekend! Maybe just the first book?!?
 
 
 The Hunger-games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins

I have put all of the below books in my "wish list" and now need to decide which one gets placed in my purchased pile!



I might need to stick with a light, fun read and Janet Evanovich never disappoints me.  I have had this book waiting for just the right time...and this weekend might just it!

Have you read any good books lately? If so, leave a comment...I would love to add more titles to my list!

  1. I of course just LOVE your new Kindle cover :-). My daughter ripped through the Hunger Games series and adored it but I have heard only great things about Rules of Civility - so much to read, so little time!!

  2. Ohhhhh, The Baker's Daughter looks very interesting! That might be my next one. This weekend, I'm digging into William Boyd's "Any Human Heart" - heard very good things about it.

  4. So engrossed in Lev Grossman's second book, The Magician King - part Harry Potter, part Narnia, part Lord of the Rings - and thoroughly enjoyable. His first, The Magicians, is equally as good. Once I'm done, it's Rules of Civility for me (heard it's wonderful!)

  5. Finally tackling Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet. I have a feeling this will take me a while! The Hunger Games is in my queue as well. And I would recommend Murakami if you feel like surreal contemporary fiction.

  6. Everyone keeps telling me to read Hunger Games but it just sounds so...gruesome! But if all the book clubs are reading it I guess it can't be that bad.

    Right now I am working on the Sunday Philosophy Club series...not sure what I will read next, I have countless unread books too!
