So, I didn't read as many books this month... but I had a lot of all-day babysitting gigs, and I've been working on a lot of Sweet Lemon Magazine (yay!!!!) stuff. Anyway- I did read some books that I thought I'd do a little re-cap of.
By the way- if you read my Harry Potter post... I've decided to read it! I'm going to wait until I go back to school though. I have some hard copy books that I found in my house that piqued my interest, so I'm going to read those during August (I don't want to lug heavy books back to school). Also, I searched high and low in our house and have yet to find HP 1 or 2, ugh... buying them on the nook.
(PS this isn't the order that I read the books in... )

Okay, I found this book beyond hilarious. It's really corny and cheesy, but if anyone has been on the sidelines of a soccer game (hello, Sporty Sister is my sister) and witnessed crazy parents (hello, Soccer Mom and Dad are my parents) then you will GET and LOVE the humor of this book.
This is the College Prepster Book Club selection for July/August! Definitely read it!!!
Me & Emma
by Elizabeth Flock
Holy moly- sad, sad, sad, sad! But the story is really good, even if you will cry. Poor little girls!
Never Let Me Go
by Kazuo Ishiguro
Eh. Interesting story, I guess. Not a fan of the style of writing.
by Marly Swick
Weird. Barely any story. Difficult start, boring end.
by Ann Brashares
GREAT! If you were a fan of the Traveling Pants series (seriously though, who wasn't), you will LOVE this book! It's really sad, and kind of slow, and depressing at the beginning.... get through that and you'll fall right back in love with the gang!
The Devil in the Junior League
by Linda Francis Lee
Surprisingly entertaining. Wasn't sure if I'd like it, but it was a cute summer read.

You can read about why I loved this book so much here.
Phew! What have you guys been reading? What's next on your list? What's sitting on your night stand???
PS Please pinch me... tomorrow can't possibly be August!
