Summer reading list

In no particular order as I cannot be bothered:

The Reader by Bernhard Schlink (already started this, it's nice)

The Bolter by Frances Osborne

Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (I loved Half a Yellow Sun)

A Month in the Country by J.L. Carr (I've never read this, but I thought the movie was great. This was before I started disliking Kenneth Branagh(as an actor, as a director and screenwriter I think he's brilliant bordering on genius)
Beijing Doll by Chun Sue

Rememeber Me by Melvin Bragg

Madresfield the Real Brideshead by Jane Mulvagh

Nothing to Lose by Lee Child (his are the best action books)

Rubyfruit Jungle by Rita Mae Brown (ever since the first time I saw Educating Rita I've been wanting to read this)

Svart som natten by Ann Cleeves

What I Loved by Siri Hustvedt (all the other whores* like this one)

*Daph, there's a Swedish website called the book whore (bokhora). It just means they like books. Like I do. A little too much.

I really hope I'll read most of them as I've promised myself not to buy any new books until I've read these. I will probaly read What I Loved and Nothing to Lose and 250 comics. And some Mills&Boon.

And so, obviously I don't need any book tips, but I'd still like to know what everybody else is reading.
