Books I've read...

Well, the heat of mid summer has set in and the AC is running like crazy, but not really making any impact. The tempurature of the pool reminds me of a hot bath, and being in the sun too long results in my skin turning a lovely shade of rose. My school books haven't arrived yet, so I can't get a jump start on my 11th grade year (what possessed me to resort to schoolwork to fill my days?). What to do, what to do...besides read?, or course! If you're hot and restless like me, here is a list of all the books I've read while I've been in high school. =) And below that, my TBR list. Happy reading!
