What I've Been Reading: July 2012

Can you believe that today is August 1st?! I can't believe we are in our "last month" of summer. Regardless, I'm pretty excited because I'm going on vacation in just a couple of weeks and my husband will be turning the dirty 30 while we are away, so there will be lots of celebrating!

Question of the month (from Andi): If you were stranded on an island--which one album and which one book would you want to have with you?

Another toughie Andi! I'd have to pick Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions. I read this in college and  it has been one of the very few books that were required reading that I thoroughly enjoyed. My English professor sparked my fascination with Vonnegut and I am so thankful for that. Not everyone is a Vonnegut fan though, I think you will either love his style or hate it. I happen to love it because he's entertaining but on a deeper level, and he leaves a lot to the imagination. 

Under the Table & Dreaming by Dave Matthews Band (1994)
I'm picking Dave Matthews Band but I'm cheating a little because instead of one album, I'm picking one mixed CD of theirs. I'm not your stereotypical DMB fan but lately I have found myself drawn to their music. I just went to my first DMB concert a few months ago and I loved it. All of their music is so relaxing and I think I would need something to relax me from the panic of being stranded so this choice makes perfect sense to me.



  1. After devouring 50 shades I'm really ready to get back to the deeper novels I know and love :D Thanks for the Vonnegut tip, I'll definitely put it in the queue to crank up for a summer beach read!

    Peace. Love. LOL!

  2. I'm with Julie, 50 shades was just too shallow for me. Fun to read, but not exactly enlightening! I love your picks :)

  3. Dave Matthews Band will always remind me of my University - Crash is just the best song EVER!
