"she is too fond of books and it has turned her brain"

Hello friends!

I am in desperate need of some summer reading recommendations (plane ride to North Carolina and back + hanging out on the beach for a week + driving across the country = so much time to read)!

Here's what's on my list so far:
Water for Elephants (have heard so many good things about this book)
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat (non-fiction book about crazy neurological disorders, read one of the author's other books and it was really interesting)
The Creators (non-fiction book Dr. Goates gave me as a graduation present about creativity throughout time, looks fascinating)

I'm looking for some exceptional fiction plus maybe some super interesting non-fiction...okay, basically I'm just looking for anything awesome.

Ideas? What are you reading this summer?

Water for Elephants is super good. Check out my page on (I "friended" you. You've probably read all of them, but may be worth a try. I've added some recommended non-fiction to my "to-read" list.
