I cannot believe how fast this year flew by. I’m looking forward to summer to catch up on both my fun and professional reading lists. I love reading fiction so much that I really have to force myself to read non-fiction. I try to read one work of fiction whilst trudging through two of non-fiction. I think the more accurate ratio is 6:1, though.

  • My first goal is to finish reading Crucial Conversations. Several people in my admin cohort recommended it. One friend even gave it to everyone in her family for Christmas one year because she found it so helpful.
  • My Twitter pal Anna (@alove) got me hooked on The Spellman Files, so books 3 and 4 are atop this list.
  • Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love rocked my world when I read it in 2007. I bought Committed recently and plan to read it while I wait at appointments.
  • I am super geeked up about the final installment in The Hunger Games series titled Mockingjay, but have to wait until the end of summer for its release. (Another @alove rec.) I have found myself reading young adult fiction more and more and really enjoying it. I read Steve Kluger’s My Most Excellent Year over spring break and recommend it to my students (and anyone else, for that matter) for their summer reading list.
  • A student recommended The Perks of Being a Wallflower and my 11-year-old niece recommended highly The View From Saturday, so I’ll be looking for those soon.
  • Daniel Pink’s Drive and Seth Godin’s Linchpin are both in my queue under the non-fiction regimen.
  • Little Bee and The History of Love are both on my nightstand waiting for summer to be read.

What’s on your list?
