Because reading is hot.

Hot Reads!

The Hotties around these parts have impressive Summer reading lists ! I sent an email around asking for titles of books they’re planning to read, or books they recommend, and they came through with flying colors. You know why? Reading is hot! That’s why. I put my list in there too. Right now, I am on book #10 of the Sookie Stackhouse Mysteries (True Blood) and they are PERFECT for Summer. I realized that I was kind of a literature snooty pants, which is not conducive to the Hottie Creed of open-mindedness and egalitarianism for all, and I am also kind of anti-vampire genre. But I do love Sookie and her little Southern fairy self. And, the vampires are FOXY, unlike the vamps and their disgusting white goo (seriously)  in The Strain. In general, I have two issues with these books. One) I don’t care about the werewolves of Shreveport, and I wish they would go away and leave Sookie alone, and two) they are super fast reads, and I basically read the 10 books in the series since May and now there aren’t any more. 😦

In any case, find out what some of the hotties are planning on reading between now and September after the jump (we’ll save the recommendations for another day):

Update: Book 2 Mid-Point Review, Second Meeting on the 14th or 15th–NOT the 21st, Dinner Parties, Andria’s Balls

Hello Hotties,

I know everyone LOVES a mid-point review. I also know we’re all in different places so without giving anything away: HOLEE VAMPIRES, this book is SCARY!!!! I actually read until midnight last night, and I will probably be done today because I can’t put it down, even though it is giving me no undue amount of stress.

Edvard Munch's The Vampire

This is Edvard Munch’s The Vampire–(Sexiness)

Anyway, as you have probably seen in my email, I proposed we have a second The Strain meeting/discussion on November 21st for those peoples who can’t make the 1st.  BUT, I said this without realizing I have something going on that day. SO, I propose the 14th or 15th for the 2nd meeting, and I am still happy to host that one.  Please let me know if you want to do the 14th or 15th. I still intend on being at Hell’s Kitchen on the 1st.

In a total aside, but not unrelated, Amy, Andria, Irene and I had lunch (in which I discussed my hatred of sweatpants paired with Uggs) and they were game to my brilliant idea of our little group (or whoever wants to come), having Sunday night dinner parties twice a month. Kids, mates, and others included. (as a note to those of you without kids– this will probably mean a little more mayhem than you’re used to).

The DPs could be on a Saturday too. In fact, the first one COULD be Nov. 14th or 15th at the second book discussion. Basically, it’s a chance for us foodie/bookie-types to get together and make food together and eat and eat and talk some more. Partly inspired by Julia’s book and also my newly purchased book called Forking Fantastic and my love of you guys and cooking. The Dinner Parties can be casual,  with everyone contributing food, time, or cash, but it should most importantly be about getting together and making REALLY good food.

It may not always work out, but I think it would be a great to see what we could cook up! (Ha!)

Also, this may be the perfect chance to get more of Andria’s balls.

What do you say hotties!?
