What's On Your Summer Reading List?

Mischa Barton recently took a breather from all the glamour of Cannes to catch up on a little bit of reading — on Roberto Cavalli’s yacht, natch! The actress tells PEOPLE that she’s reading The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini right now because, “I’ve been reading a lot of books about Afghanistan and Pakistan recently for some reason.” Kudos to Mischa, but my beach reading is a little bit lighter. Besides reading the new Tim Gunn book, I’m spending the weekend with the new paperback edition of Free Gift With Purchase, the view-from-the-top book written by witty Lucky Beauty Director Jean Godfrey June (think of it as the flip side of The Devil Wears Prada). Tell us: What’s on your summer reading list? Any books you are dying to read?Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

I’m reading a book from Francine Rivers. Love it, for the beach I’m going to take a thicker book so I won’t finish reading it in one day.

Shopaholic + Baby!! It is my guilty confession.. I started reading the Shopaholic series when they first started and had to continue on! Sophie Kinsella is hilarious!

I totally agree with shopaholic & baby. The first book of Kinsella’s I read, I thought, oh too lite for me, too silly, I am way too mature for this, way too serious of a literaturista – hey, there is room at the party for lite and silly. It’s so fun and goes down like juicy melon. I am getting through Sense and Senseability, trying to get my Jane Austen on. But the best thing I’ve done so far is listen to Andriana Trigiani read one of her books on CD – puuuuuure pleasure. At breakfast, I am reading an old Tom Clancy, Debt of Honor. The whole family is waiting breathlessly for Harry Potter, preordered on Amazon. I am forcing my 16 year old son to read How to Be a Gentleman to me. He balked at first, but now is reluctantly liking the wit. The best book I just finished was Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven, Fannie Flagg – if you love southern, humourous fiction, this is heaven. I sobbed, sobbed, sobbed at the last line.

I am definitely looking forward to the last Harry Potter book!! And the 5th movie too. :)
