Books are food for my soul! Pull up a beach chair and stick your toes in the sand as the Jersey surf rolls in and out, now open your book and let your imagination take you away.

End of Summer Ramblings ....

As the Summer Season of 2011 winds down this week with the Labor Day Holiday, I got to thinking about all the great books I read this summer. This was an awesome summer for reading, I read a total of 29 books from May 25th to August 31st. There were so many good books from all genres that I read, but I have a list of my Top 5 Favorite Books For The Summer of 2011:

My Top 5 Favorite Books ~ Summer 2011:

1) The Help by Kathryn Stockett

2) The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins

3) Now You See Her by James Patterson

4) Best Staged Plans by Claire Cook

5) Folly Beach by Dorothea Benton Frank

Honorable Mention: One Good Dog by Susan Wilson
(Because I just finished the book on 8/31)

So now friends it is your turn .... what were your favorite books that you read this summer?
