Summer Reading List

I just read this post from Life in the House of No Sleep and made the sad realization that I have only read 22 of those 100 classics (although there are 7 Harry Potter books and 7 books in the Narnia series as well)! I am a bit ashamed of that number and so I decided to put together a summer reading list for myself (I use to dread these in High School). I know once this baby is born, I will not have that much time for reading so it is time to cram in some classics.

Here are the books I have read:

1. Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
2. Harry Potter series - JK Rowling (I have read them at least 3 times each)
3. To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
4. Great Expectations - Charles Dickens
5. Little Women - Louisa M Alcott (I have read this 4 times)
6. Chronicles of Narnia - CS Lewis
7. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - CS Lewis
8. Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden
9. Winnie the Pooh - AA Milne
10. Animal Farm - George Orwell
11. The Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown
12. Anne of Green Gables - LM Montgomery (I read the entire series)
13. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time - Mark Haddon
14. Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck
15. The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold
16. Bridget Jones's Diary - Helen Fielding (I read the sequel as well)
17. The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson Burnett
18. Charlotte's Web - EB White
19. The Five People You Meet In Heaven - Mitch Albom
20. The Little Prince - Antoine De Saint-Exupery
21. Hamlet - William Shakespeare
22. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Roald Dahl

Here is my summer reading list:

1. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
2. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
3. Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Then I need to read my book club books (unfortunately not on the list), Pregnancy Week by Week and many Potty Training Books (oh I need lots of help here!).

I think that is a pretty hefty list for now. I will submit a book report after each book :) Here's to your summer reading!

I haven't read any of the books on that list. *hangs head in shame*

This is a great idea! I may have to borrow it from you!
