Summer Break Reading/Re-Reading List

Note: Summer break, not summer the season. My summer starts when school ends and stops when school begins. So this is just a list to pull from throughout the break... I don't necessarily have to read them all. Some of these I really don't know too much about... I've just heard of them or I've seen the movie so if there are some on here you would dissuade me from feel free to comment and let me know. Also, feel free to recommend others in the comments section. I should have lots of time being out at my Grandparents to read and I hope to do just that.
