What I'm reading

Summer time is perfect for catching up on reading, so I'm trying to make the very most of it before the lazy days slip through my fingers!
The first book I began reading out of the four is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Need I say why?

I've just gotten to the chapter where Voldemort breaks into Dumbledore's tomb, and let me tell you, this book is just as great the second time around.

The next book is my "I have five minutes in between activities" book, because it's not a novel, more a mish mosh of thoughts and jokes I can pick it up for a few minutes for a laugh without having to invest the time to read a whole chapter. This one will probably be a touch controversial, because everyone I've spoken to about Woody Allen either have loved him with all their heart, or want his head in a saucepan. I happen to fall into the first group of people, and the book is called Without Feathers.

I'm not so sure how I feel about this next one, I've only read two chapters so I can not say much just yet. This book is titled The breaking of eggs. And because all of my friends know I'm hopelessly devoted to learning all I can about American history, my dear friend Stephanie gave me this one. It's by Jim Powell and is somewhat about communism, somewhat about world war two (so it seems) and somewhat about a very cranky, unlikeable old misanthrop. But I deffinitely should give it more of a chance before deciding I do not like it, perhaps it will surprise me.

And last but not least I just picked up today, it is by the same author as The Secret (which I've been dying to read!) and it is called The Power. It is such a feel good read! I'm not yet halfway through, but I love it already. The way it's written makes you feel like you're just having a chat with the author, Rhonda Byrne, and the images inside are simply gorgeous. I really like the lay out of this book, it has lots of warm colors and welcoming designs on the pages. Highly recommended!

What are you reading, and any opinions on these four?
When I finish each one I'll write out reviews, until then;
happy reading,
