These are the five books I want to read this summer:
Bad Monkey: A NovelBy Carl Hiaasen
Because who wouldn't want to read a book about a bad monkey? And besides, it's HIAASEN.
The Andy Warhol Diaries Edited by Pat Hackett
Because I recently watched the PBS show on Warhol and was intrigued by his childhood and early adulthood and how it helped shape his art. I'm hoping the diaries give further insight.
The Astronaut Wives Club: A True StoryBy Lily Koppel
Because I love the photo on the cover and I'd like to know more about the women.
The Adventures of Huckleberry FinnBy Mark Twain
Because I've never read it.
Julia's Cats: Julia Child’s Life in the Company of CatsBy Patricia Barey and Therese Burson
Because I ran across it at a yard sale, read the first page and was charmed by the writing and the concept. Not to mention I love cats and Julia Child.
