Summer reading list

I've been rereading books that I already own and love. It started when I reread the entire Harry Potter series in anticipation of the last movie. (Except book 6. I can't find book 6. If I lent it to any of you, please give it back. It's driving me crazy.) I also watched all of the movies again because I'm a geek that way and I have the time.

After I finished the HP series, I began reading all of Neil Gaiman's books again. He's my favorite author, and the 10th anniversary edition of American Gods (my favorite book) is coming out on June 21. I finished Anansi Boys and Neverwhere, and started Good Omens last night.

Other books on my to be reread list:
Smoke and Mirrors
Fragile Things
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
A Suitable Boy
World War Z
Sacred Games
Fight Club
and whatever else I dig up in the boxes that currently house my book collection.

Anyone have book suggestions?


  1. I haven't had the pleasure of reading anything Neil Gaiman but it shall change being it's my roommate's favorite author. I've just begun to read through her library of fun since most of my books are in storage and Netflix has been quite bland lately.

    B doesn't know this but I have a shelf (okay, more than one) of purgatory of books I'd buy with good intentions to read. Oh how I miss the days when I had a more disposable income! :(

    Lately, I have a growing penchant for reading fiction as The Strain trilogy and Geek Love have been added to the summer reading list along with The Lonely Polygamist. Aside from my HP obsession, my bookcases seem to contain a lot of history, Filipino-oriented, political science, leftist revolutionary theory, cookbooks and law books. :P

  2. I read Geek Love! It was very good. Very odd but very good.

    I have books from back when I worked at Barnes & Noble that I still haven't read. It'll happen eventually.

    I was on a nonfiction kick for a while and read The Poisoner's Handbook (which made Steve nervous), The Deadly Dinner Party, Dead Men Do Tell Tales, and a few others about forensic anthropology.

    I also highly recommend The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
