My Book Shelf-

hmm......I need an exciting/intriguing book to read. Any ideas?? For school I am reading 'The Prince and the Pauper,' by Mark Twain. Its a good book, but I haven't gotten more than half of the way. After I am done with that I will need something else to work on. Maybe reading for over the summer.
Right now on my summer reading list I have-

Jane Eyre (I started it before school, and got almost half of it finished, but then school started and I didn't have time to finish it.)
Pride and Prejudice- seen the (6 hour) movie- I need to read the book!

The Great Gatsby- (Lauren really liked it- maybe I will to!;)

The Hidden Staircase Mystery- A Nancy Drew book. I have read this one, but not the old version! I found this book at an antique store. It is a first edition and is completely different from the new one.

A morbid Taste for Bones- Funny title. Do YOU have a morbid taste for bones!! hee hee..... Just kidding....

The Scarlet Letter-

As you can see I will be busy this summer! You will probably find me-

curled up in a retro chair

Sipping tea- preferably peppermint (iced)

and reading one of the books above.

Whats on your book shelf for the summer? Any recommendations for you to share with me? Leave a comment, I'd love to hear! Also which Pride and Prejudice movie do you like best? the six hour version or the new one? for me- the long one.

Psssst!!!!!! I know, I know this completely random but isn't this awesome!?!? I would just love to have that much cameo jewlery! ;)

Is it to random to say- I want an old fashioned type writter?? Okay I need to stop blogging.... I am rambling...........

Oh, I like Ellis Peters mysteries, that should be a good one! I've read it before, but I don't remember it.

Hmm...I didn't like "The Great Gatsby" or "The Scarlet Letter" but hopefully you will! :D

I just finished reading "Over sea and under stone" by Susan Cooper, and "The Dark is Rising" which is the next book in the series. I loved them!

6 hour P&P.
