Summer Reading Thing

I found a fun way to start my summer reading here: Summer Reading Thing 2009 Contest, books, summer and reading all wrapped up together!

I looked at the pile of books by my bed (and the ones on hold at the library) that I have designated as 'summer reading'. I was surprised to see so many LDS authors.

Here is the list (in no particular order):

The Actor and the Housewife by Shannon Hale
Forest Born by Shannon Hale
A Modest Proposal by Michele Ashman Bell
Molly Mormon? by Tamra Norton
The Princess and the Bear by Mette Ivie Harrison
Flying Home by Rachel Ann Nunes
Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind by Heidi Ashworth
Recovering Charles by Jason F. Wright
Seeking Persephone by Sarah Eden
Out of Jerusalem by H.B. Moore
Fablehaven Book Four by Brandon Mull
The Candy Shop War by Brandon Mull
Heaven Scent by Rebecca Talley
Santa's Secret by Christy Hardman
My Not-So Fairy-Tale Life by Julie Wright
Nothing to Regret by Tristi Pinkston
Agent in Old Lace by Trist Pinkston
Bitten by Robert Smith
Papa Married A Mormon by John D.Fitzgerald
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Wings by Aprilynne Pike
Brisingr by Christopher Paolini
Rescued by Mao by William Taylor
Miracles by C.S. Lewis

(There are a few on this list that are not LDS but I really need to read them this summer!)

Stay tuned to find out how many I got read and read a few reviews!
