Summer Pleasure Reading List (#22)

A while back, I published a list of the professional reading I am planning for this summer. I mentioned that I would soon publish a list of pleasure reading planned for the summer.

Before any of you think that you are going to see a list of the summer bestsellers or of the classics, I need to warn you. I read mostly young adult fantasy and science fiction when I am reading for pleasure. I guess that I get enough intellectual stimulation from all of the principal reading or from talking with my 15 month old son.

Anyway, here are some of the pleasure books that I am hoping to read this summer (in no particular order):

His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik (free through Kindle)
Syren by Angie Sage (another Septimus Heap book)
The Atlantis Complex by Eion Colfer (Artemis Fowl book 7)
The Seventh Dwarf by Eion Colfer (Artemis Fowl again)
Graceling by Kristen Cashore
Eye of the World by Robert Jordan

This is just to get me started. If I get through these, I have a "Books to Read" list that is rather huge. Always more to read.

What are you planning to read for pleasure this summer?
