Splish Splash Blog Bash: Summer Reads

Before you read my list, let me just tell you: I'm an English teacher, and yes, I know I have a very eclectic selection of books! What other collection has vampires, bullying and heaven all in one list? :)

So here we go:

MY FAVORITE SUMMER READS:

PAST:
  The Hunger Games Trilogy – seriously, get on it! 


Heaven is for Real - by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent
This book is about a 4 year old who goes to heaven while on the operating table and retells his story to his parents.






PRESENT:
How We Love Our Kids - By Milan and Kay Yerkovich

Organization books and magazines {because 1. I need it and 2. It’s what my book club is reading.} :)

FUTURE:
Some books I would like to read this summer are:

ABRAHAM LINCOLN - VAMPIRE HUNTER, by Seth Grahame-Smith – seriously! A friend let me borrow this and said it is better than it sounds. I’m hoping it’s one of those books that are surprisingly good!

This version:


 And not this one. ;-)

also:
Out of My Mind - by Sharon M. Draper {A book about bullying. It's juvenile  fiction, but still looks good.}



The Marriage Bargain - by Jennifer Probst. This one is about a billionaire who arranges a one-year marriage contract with a book store owner who needs the money for her struggling business. {Hey, a girl can dream right?} lol

See? Eclectic!! BUT I am a firm believer in 2 things:

1. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU READ, as long as you are reading!!! And you owe it to your imagination:



And 2. Reading seriously improves your mind. So turn off that TV and read a book! Trust me -- and this poster:


Hee hee! So sad... you wouldn't want that to happen to YOUR books would you?

So, spill it! What are your favorite summer reads? I would love to add more books to my list!!! :D

Woo hoo for day 2 of the Summer Blog Bash! Click the links below to see what the other party gals are reading!

OMG this is so funny....I literally have five books in my Amazon cart right now. I could have them sent to my Kindle but they are only a buck or two more than the paper version and there is just something about a REAL book!
I have so many I want to read this summer:
The Bloggess' book
This book about a man who was Amish and left the order.....can't think of the name
Emily Giffin's newest book....
the list goes on and on.
Isn't the Abraham Lincoln book being made into a movie too?
