A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan

Pride & Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith/Jane Austen

or maybe we can all get into a YA series, like Incarceron or Maze Runner.

What about Sex on the Moon: The Amazing Story Behind the Most Audacious Heist in History by Ben Mezrich? Many of his book have been adapted for movies & tv - 21(Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions), Social Network (The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, a Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal), Skin (a story set as an X-Files episode)

it's billed as THE RIGHT STUFF meets OCEAN'S ELEVEN. Not sure if this is considered light but at least it seams interesting

Read One Day by David Nicholls. You're going to love it.

Steph | 13 comments All sound good. The Maze Runner, The Stupidest Angel and Goon Squad sound good and pretty light. Well, maybe not Maze Runner. The Book Thief sounds good, but intense.

And Abby, I finished "One Day". It was great. A fun light reading.

Abby (atanori512) | 86 comments Just started it! :) So far so good ;)

Abby (atanori512) | 86 comments Love "One Day".. such a great book... but man the ending broke me. I was a crying mess in the first anniversary. I related to Em's frustration with fertility and how it can really tug at the fragile strings of a relationship. I loved watching both of them take their own routes but still always have this connection with one another even when they were apart. Great book. :)

So what else should I read!? I have so much time on my hands now....

When you're done with that, read "where she went". It's the conclusion of the story. I love these books so much. Author is one of my favs. Tell me when you've started. I can send you some video stuff author posted.
