Breaking Dawn-The most awaited book of the year, that not everybody loved, but will go down in history.
The Dead & The Gone-An amazing new companion novel from one of the most intense novels I've ever read.
Bad Girls-An amazing suspense novel from an awesome author that I will won't to read more of.
House of Dance-A beautiful story that is so memorizing and incredible from the most poetic author in the YA world.

The above books are highly recommended if you haven't read it yet.
This summer has been really fun, mostly because I have this blog, otherwise, pretty boring. But I got a ton of reading in so, that's really fun. But this summer has been really cold for a summer. We had an extremely long winter, November through half of June pretty much. I was still using a blanket in June and I didn't stop wearing my winter jacket until May. We had a blizzard the last week of April and got a foot of snow and the snow didn't melt until that middle of May. So I pretty much read, and watched Veronica Mars in June. (Veronica Mars rules!!!!) Then in July I read and watched the whole four seasons of Lost. (Lost rules!!!! Can't wait for season five in 2009!!!) and in August I pretty much read, but of course in those three months I blogged also, as I've finally reached my 100th post last week sometime, which is extremely exciting (Enter my 100th Post contest before Sept. 5th!).
So this Fall and Winter I plan on having a Halloween/Birthday contest coming up in about a month in a half, which is going to be HUGE, I can guarantee you. Then on January 21st will be my blog's first anniversary, which is so exciting, I can't wait! I don't have anything planned for that yet, but it'll be huge, I promise. Also look for some author interviews/guest blogs!
So, should I make a goal from now until . . . New Year's shall we say? Let's see school is in then, so how about 25 books. I think that might work, I will TRY to read 25 books by the end of 2008.
Did you have a goal this summer? Did you beat it? Do you have a new goal this fall? Tell me in a comment!
Other then that, I hope everybody had an awesome summer and here comes Autumn!
