Reading all over the place

I have always wanted a summer where I can be in my garden when I want to and pick up a book and read it when i want to, and this summer my dreams have come true.  My  children are finally old enough to fend for them selves so I can disappear into the garden or a good book and as long as I ignore their brotherly loving (AKA fighting), I can be lost for hours and no one cares.
I have found that I can't read a book fast enough this summer.  I have found a lot of really good books and I wanted to share some of them with you.  Of course none of them have anything to do with art specifically, but some of them are very creative.  I started by of course reading the Hunger games series, and now I am working on the Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare.  That series is not as well known, but I see they are making it into a movie for next summer so I want to be ahead of the curve this year.  I have finished the first two books, and I am about to start City of Glass.  I was a little excited and diappointed that she has added another 3 books to the series.  I was hoping I was getting close to the end and would find out what happens to the characters.  But I was excited to read more, they are really good.

I have also read The Shack by Young, The Line by Teri Hall (which I have discovered there is a second book called The Away) and I have been flying through the Janet Evanovich series about Stephanie Plum.  I just finished book 11 and I am headed to the library for number 12.  In fact, I read book 11 yesterday.  Yes, I started and finished a book in the same day.  I even had to finish book 10 yesterday before I stared book 11.

So if anyone has a suggestion of a book that I need to read let me know, because I still have plenty of summer.
