Summer Reading

It seems like the only time I get to truly enjoy reading books is over the summer when I have much more free time on my hands.  (If you guys only knew how much time you take from my life! It's not just 8:30-4:00, I promise!)  Anyway, I'm downloading some books onto my Kindle, and I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for me. I like to keep up on what you are reading, too.

Just so you know:  yes, I'm a Harry Potter lover; I read the Twilight series, too, but that was my honestly weird obsession with vampires... the writing... well, it was pretty lackluster. (I'm being polite.)

Right now, I'm feeling completely nostalgic, and I'm reading the Sweet Valley Confidential by Francine Pascal which is the "adult" follow-up to the Sweet Valley High series which I started reading way back when. It's a light, easy read, and I'm not expecting much out of it.  I love, love, love Jodi Picoult (Sing You Home already on Kindle). I also enjoy historical fiction: The Red Tent and The Other Boleyn Girl being my favorites.  I'm kinda eclectic in my taste for novels. I like all the genres as long as the author can hook me.

I just downloaded:  This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper and Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen.  I'm now searching the NY Times Bestsellers list and also the top Kindle list.

I am truly interested in what you guys have read and enjoyed.  Let me know!
