Summer reading, part 1

Are you looking for one of the biggest book worms in the world? Well, here I am. I learned to read at the age of five, and ever since, I’ve been constantly told by my entourage that I was reading too much…I couldn’t disagree more! One can NEVER, ever, read too much!!! On the contrary, I’m constantly convinced that I should spend much more time devouring the great books that appear every day (and considering the size of my bookshelves, I´m definitely right!). So, one of the major things on my Summer bucket list is: read, read, read, anytime, anywhere. But not anywhat, of course!
So here comes the first part of my summer reading selection. Have you read any of these books? Did you like them? (No spoilers, please 🙂 Would you recommend any other great books that I shouldn’t miss? 
This is definitely my number one “absolutely-need-to-read-this” summer book. Of course I loved the movie and of course I’ve found it very touching. But….I used to be very weary when it comes to watch movies based on the books. It was often quite disappointing to see the book cut and modified to the point of nonrecognition (hello, Harry Potter). But the Twilight series have given me some hope again 🙂 I wonder what it will be like, for once, to read the book after having watched the movie. We shall see!
The same logic applies here. I simply adored the movie, and I was amazed by Colin Firth’s performance. I can’t wait to replay the scenes from this wonderful film in my head, while reading the book.
I’ve read some rave reviews on these new series, and I can’t wait to discover by myself this new, distopian world. 
Another book everybody’s talking about. I’m pretty impatient to find out what the buzz is all about!
No comment needed here. She’s hilarious, she’s empowering and I’m sure her book will be exactly like that!

    You're going to LOVE Water for Elephants. Such a good read and even better than the movie. Can't wait to start Bossypants myself… if you get to it first, let me know what you think!
