Second to my luv of handbags is my luv of books. I started another thread about what you'll be reading this summer. Here, list your top 10 recommendations for the perfect summer/beach read (if you can't come up w/10 - come up w/as many as you can!!) In no particular order, here are my top ten recommendations: 1. THE NOTEBOOK, by Nicholas Sparks - if you haven't read this already you definitely should (I think it's one of the greatest "love stories" of all time and so much better than the movie!) 2. THE SECOND ASSISTANT and/or THE FIRST ASSISTANT, by Clare Naylor - a fun "chic lit" book about life in Hollywood (lots of name dropping fun!) 3. SOME LIKE IT HAUTE, by Julie K.L. Dam - a fun stylish look at fashion week in Paris (TONS of designer references here!!) 4. LOVE WALKED IN, by Marisa de los Santos - Sarah Jessica Parker has the movie rights to this book & I hear it will be made soon. 5. LITTLE EARTHQUAKES, by Jennifer Weiner - Mothers of all ages will thoroughly enjoy this book - a year in the life of four new moms. 6. BEACH GIRLS, by Luanne Rice - I luv all of her books but this was my favorite summer read of hers. 7. DEVIL WEARS PRADA, by Lauren Weisberger - even if you've seen the movie you should still read the book! 8. SUMMER SISTERS, by Judy Blume - Loved her as a teenager, luved this grown-up novel. 9. BETWEEN FRIENDS, by Debbie Macomber - mentioned this is my other post. One of my fav books of all time! 10. THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE, by Audrey Niffenegger - Long, but definitely a great read. I've never read anything like it!!
