What I am Reading this Summer

Hey there. It is summer! What are you reading? What should you read? What am I reading?

I am finishing (well, rewriting) my new YA book, which doesn't have a title yet.  Scroll down the blog for more on the Write Faster project. To that end I am reading and re-reading watching stuff that seems somehow similar or related, including:

John Green's The Fault in Our Stars (I read this already)
Joyce Carol Oates's We Were the Mulvaneys
Donna Tartt's The Secret History (I read this already) 
The Royal Tennenbaums (rewatch)
The Magnificent Ambersons (rewatch)

Some other books on my summer "to be read" pile:

Tara Altebrando's The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life, which is all about this enormous scavenger hunt. I love a book full of hijinks. Tara's website is all updated with fun stuff relating to her new book and her Pinterest board for the book is super fun.
Libba Bray's The Diviners, which I have an early copy of. Nananananannananana.
Rachel Cohn's Beta, also an early copy! (I better stop gloating but I can't really.)
Louise Rennison's Withering Tights, which is about drama school, just like my own Dramarama.  So you know I'll love it. Also, it's Louise Rennison. I always love her.

On on non-YA front:

Don Winslow's Savages, on which the upcoming movie is based.
Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere
Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?
Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus.
