Please help my summer reading list!

I'm expanding my horizons! lol I'd really love to hear some recommendations. I love fantasy, romance, mystery, magic. I'm reading The Given Day by Dennis Lehane right now..he's also written Gone, Baby, Gone and Mystic River which were both made into motion pictures. It's not really something I'd pick up usually, but I'm enjoying it so far. So, any thing that you love, shoot it my way!

  • Classics:
    Watership Down
    The Count of Monte Cristo
    Both are wonderful, timeless treasures. If you haven't read them I highly recommend them.

  • tHE CHILD CALLED IT is realy good (very sad ), But very very good. The second book in this series is :The lost boy: It is a true story and it will catch your attention ,The author and who the story is about is David something. look it up on google or something. i loved it so much i have read it about 5 times. It makes you think of how wonderful of a mother you are and how there is so many problems out there. My second suggestion is THE LAST JUROR byJohn Grisham. Realy, almost all of his books are VERY good. After you read some of his books like THE CLIENT , you can watch the movie.

    Enjoy!! I know i did and still do!!
