I Still Want To Know & Wrapping up the Summer Contest

What Did You Read This Summer?

I know.
This post was supposed to happen at the end of Summer. Originally planned for the end of August. I thought I could squeak by with it at the end of September, but now there really isn't any way out of admitting I'm late. For the record I started this post in October (hmm, don't know why I'm admitting that.) SO even though it is November 1st, I'm wrapping-up the Summer Contest anyway. That means I will give away an amazon gift card and I still want to know what you read - and I don't even mind if what you said you were going to read and what you actually read ended up being two different things. The fun is sharing what you read, picked up, put down, or stumbled upon- right?
(In case you have completely forgotten, this is the post where I started the Summer Reading List and gift card give away. Here is where I compiled the list from the awesome readers.)
Be sure and leave a comment, short or long, letting me know what you read & I'll announce a winner sometime next week. Really!

Here is my summer break-down by books:
Possession by Elana Johnson
What Shamu Taught Me About Life, Love, and Marriage by Amy Sutherland
A Heart Like His  by Virginia H. Pearce
The Science of Trust by John M. Gottman

I'd like to tell you all about them, but I'll have to save that for another post (otherwise this one won't get posted until mid-December.)

OK, I read Akasha (loved it), Poison Study (really loved it), Magic Study (pretty good), Fire Study (OK), Brisingr (really liked it), Heaven is for Real (cute), 90 Minutes in Heaven (interesting), Forest Born (OK), Misfortune (not good), The Prologue: The Brothers--Great and Terrible (which I thought was not great, but terrible. I had fun reading while I had time!

The only one that stands out for me was "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak. I tried it once last year, but couldn't get past the formatting. I tried again because of all the rave reviews it got. The format is still bizarre, but I was touched by the story.
