Lit: Uniquely Portable Magic - Summer Reading

We're heading into Memorial Day weekend and you know what that means, right? Besides thunderstorms to ruin your weekend plans? Or does that just happen here?'s time for all good book nerds to start thinking about what they want to read this summer!

Flavorwire has a list of nonfiction reads for those who'd like to learn a little something this summer. The list includes memoirs, graphic novels, a book about food, a book about book publishing and books about politics. In other words, something for everyone.

I found Amazon's list of the 10 Best Summer Beach Reads on Huffington Post. Because you know I wasn't on the web page of the evil empire. Again, I digress. Of course, no beach reads list would be without the latex by Emily Giffin and Elin Hilderbrand, but it's not all traditional summer fare. The list includes John Green's The Fault In Our Stars (to get us ready for the movie, of course) and Robert Kolker's Lost Girls: An Unsolved American Mystery.

Found Traveler's Today's summer reading list on author Lauren Oliver's Tumblr. It includes Armada by Ernest Cline (this should make Ready Player One fans happy!), the latest from Stephen King and Anne River Siddons (how often do you see the two of them in the same sentence?) and Ayelet Waldman's Love and Treasure which is on my own summer reading list.

I've got a couple of other review books scheduled for the summer months but I'll largely be trying to play catch up including some Elin Hilderbrand books I have on my Nook which will be perfect for vacation, at least a couple of books for the TBR challenge, some more mysteries, and Sarah Jio's latest, Goodnight June.

Do you have plans for your reading this summer? Does your reading change with the seasons?
