My Summer Reading List...

So far this Summer I have been finding myself catching up on a lot of reading. So far I have read:

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. It's not easy trying to catch up to Ayla but I finally read the first book. To be honest, the movie wasn't that bad and was pretty faithful to the source material. All those little neo-gothic chickies who didn't like the movie because of "very, very small" issues need to shut up and just enjoy the movies as completley seperate mediums. Comic book fans have had to come to that realization hundreds of times over.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Book Three The Titan's Curse.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Book Four The Battle of the Labyrinth.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Book Five The Last Olympian. I had read the first two books in the series with Michael but he read ahead and finished the series and I of course had to catch up. Just this evening I saw the teaser trailer for the first file directed by Harry Potter one and two director Chris Columbus. It will be awesome. Check it out here.

Right now I am reading two books. The first is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J. K. Rowling. Everyone in my family has read all 7 books and I am still behind and I hope to have this one finished before we see the movie this weekend. So far, all the reviews I've seen have been positive and I'm looking forward to another great film.

The second book is The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This one is like 600+ pages and I can only do a few at a time. It's very dense and not just in the page count. A great "bathroom" book.
