SRS: You Tell Us!

Jolie is running a You Tell Us over at CuppaJolie today - see you there!

But...you can tell us here: what's on your summer reading list? I'm just finishing a non-fiction book recommended by a friend, the story of Gracia and Martin Burnham. It's a heartbreaking and hopeful read.

Plus I am reading and will be reading manuscripts from friends!

What about you?

  1. Listening to Crickets by David Gifaldi and A Crooked Kind Of Perfect by Linda Urban for starters.

  2. I need to find Tales From Outer Suburbia by Shaun Tan, Marcelo in the Real World, Run Don't Walk, and Gilead. All four of these books were custom recommended for me. Anyone read them?

  4. my self improvement summer has me reading 'outliers, the story of success', by malcom gladwell and 'i'd rather be in the studio, the artist's no excuse guide to self promotion', by alyson b stanfield.

    both books were tips from jaime temarik in a couple different blog posts. i don't read a ton of nonfiction, but these came highly recommended.

  6. I've read Tales From Outer Suburbia. I picked it up because I adore The Arrival. Suburbia was a funny little book. It's a collection of short stories with a kind of whimsical/sad tone. I'm re-reading some Isak Dinesen stories right now. I love her writing. If this were another age, I would swoon over her work.

  8. I have a ridiculously large stack of YA books from the library. Too many to mention. What I really want to read this summer is The Lightening Thief series because I didn't get past the first book.
