What to read this summer

This past Memorial Day weekend was my official kick off to the summer reading season. The only thing I love more than an afternoon on the beach is an afternoon reading a really good book. With an active toddler though I don’t have as much time to read as I used to. Still, I’ve got a few books that are on my must read list for the summer; it’s a short list tailored to my hectic schedule. How do I choose? For starters, I’m always asking friends for recommendations and reading the New York Times Book Reviewon Sunday. I’m also a big Oprah fan and I tend to like many (though not all) of her book recommendations. I’ll typically cruise her list and pick out one or two that catch my eye. Finally, I always listen to NPR (my favorite news station) and read up on what their book critics recommend. Here’s what’s on my short list so far:

El Sicario: The Autobiography of  A Mexican Assassin by Molly Molloy and Charles Bowden.
I heard an interview with the co-authors of this book on NPR and was riveted. This is the true story of an Mexican assassin who finds Christ and turns his back on his old way of life. The authors bear witness to the crimes he’s committed  as he recounts the story of his life in Mexico as a commandantein a Mexican drug cartel. Very timely in light of the news of the increasing violence in Mexico and its impact on ordinary citizens.

My Summer Reading List

Too Big to Fail: The Inside Story on how Wall Street and Washington... by Andrew Ross Sorkin.
I know this book has been out for a minute, but this has been on my list for awhile. Andrew Ross Sorkin writes for the New York Times and I enjoy his articles and his smart commentary on MSNBC’s morning news program “Morning Joe”, where he is a frequent guest. Too Big to Fail was a recently made into an HBO movie, which aired last month. I think better films have documented the financial meltdown but the movie did spur me to put this at the top of my list for the summer.
