Summer Reading List

I've made list of books I am intending to read this summer. Although, looking at how long it's gotten, it's probably going to be my Summer, Fall and possibly even Winter reading list. Especially since I'm still only on the first book of the list. The books on the list are pulled from various book recommendations I've found on lists and books I've just been meaning to read. We'll see how well I do at the actual reading. I'll try to report back on the books and what I think about them. Maybe that'll force me to post more than once a year. So, here's the list, in no particular order:
  1. To The End Of The Land - David Grossman (this is the one I'm currently reading)
  2. Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy - Eric Metaxas
  3. The Passage - Justin Cronin
  4. Never Let Me Go - Kazuo Ishiguro
  5. The History of Love - Nicole Krauss
  6. The Pride of Baghdad - Brian K. Vaughan & Nicko Henrichon
  7. The Road - Cormac McCarthy
  8. No Country For Old Men - Cormac McCarthy
  9. The Plot Against America - Philip Roth
  10. The Stand - Stephen King
  11. Godric - Frederick Buechner
  12. Everything Is Illuminated - Jonathan Safran Foer
  13. Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer
  14. I Am The Messenger - Markus Zusak (I highly recommend another book of his, The Book Thief)
  15. Bossypants - Tina Fey (this one might end up being a book on tape while I drive to NC)
  16. Room - Emma Donoghue
  17. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle - Barbara Kingsolver
  18. The Magicians - Lev Grossman
  19. Angry Conversations With God - Susan E. Isaacs
  20. Love Is An Orientation - Andrew Marin
  21. Crazy Love - Francis Chan
  22. The Shack - William P. Young (no, I really haven't read it yet)
  23. Til We Have Faces - C. S. Lewis
  24. The Harry Potter Books (all of them) - JK Rowling
  25. Love Wins - Rob Bell
