I love these weeks.  They help remind of those “must-read” books I somehow put off.  This quarter, I’m going with a ton of books I have lying around they have been put off and put off…

1. A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin — The second book in the Fire and Ice series.  I’m saving this one for my plane ride back to Indiana at the end of the month.  Can’t wait!

2. The Postman by David Brinn — The next science fiction book that J wants me to read.

3. Chicago Fire trilogy by Susan Wiggs — A fluffy romance trilogy to tide me over this spring.

5. The Host by Stephenie Meyer — Another reread.  I want to finish it before the movie releases.

6. P.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern — Been on my list for ages.  I really want to get it read and rewatch the movie for comparison.
