Summer reading, s'il vous plait.

All right, I realize there are still two weeks of school before summer officially starts, but that hasn't kept me from making (and even starting in on) my summer reading list.

1. Life of Pi, Yann Martel


2. Water for Elephants, Sara Gruen


3. What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us,
Laura van den Berg


4. The Help, Kathryn Stockett


5. The Shipping News, E. Annie Proulx


6. Running with Scissors, Augusten Burroughs


7. An Abundance of Katherines, John Green


8. Dead Until Dark, Charlaine Harris


9. The Glass Castle, Jeanette Walls


10. Breakfast at Tiffany's, Truman Capote


11. People Are Unappealing: Even Me, Sara Barron


12. Hole in My Life, Jack Gantos


13. Middlesex, Jeffrey Eugenides


14. The Bag Lady Papers: The Priceless Experience of Losing It All,
Alexandra Penney


I must say I'm surprised at how many memoirs made the cut.
Anything you think I ought to add? This is by no means a complete list...

P.S. What are you reading this summer?

I'm re-reading Kick Me and Superstud by Paul Feig (creator of Freaks and Geeks). They're fun, short snippets, and they capture everything that is delightfully miserable bout growing up.

Ooh, I really love Paul Feig, so I'll have to check those out! Thanks!

I enjoyed the Glass Castle and plan to embark on some Capote when I get through my current stack of books.
