Sundays in Bed With

Hosted by Kate @ Midnight Book Girl, this meme asks, "What are you reading this Sunday?" Well, I'm late to the game but I was curled up with nothin' yesterday. I had finished The Perks of Being a Wallflower Saturday and I haven't decided what to start on next. I'm still doing the 50,000 word challenge for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and am about half way to the goal plus my husband and I drove my niece back to college at Virginia Wesleyan and since I get nauseous reading in the car, I didn't take anything with me. Here are my choices for the next book. Since I need to read 5 before year end to catch up to my goal, I don't want to pick super long ones. Here are the choices so far: Please vote in the comments if you don't mind.

Chain Letter - Christopher Pike
The Last Lecture - Randy Pausch
In Cold Blood - Truman Capote
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (depending on length)
The Killer Inside Me - Jim Thompson
Touching the Void: The True Story of One Man's Miraculous Survival - Joe Simpson
The Trial - Franz Kafka

I think you should start with Chainletter just to get a quick, fun read in! I'm a bit overwhelmed at the moment with books I have to read for review- 2 of them quite hefty! I've been writing a bit, but I need a good catch up day. I did make it over 20k finally though!

The Last Lecture is good, and short, but be prepared to cry like a mofo. You have been warned.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on In Cold Blood, and of course I want you to read Harry Potter, but Kate's right, Chain Letter is the best option, it's short and if you want to get those 5 books read you gotta pick short ones.

And that is a total run on sentence, but I'm not fixing it :P
