June Books

James, E.L. - 50 Shades of Gray (for the record, I hated this book)

July Books

Bronte, Charlotte - Jane Eyre
Mantel, Hillary - Wolf Hall

August Books
Dunant, Sarah - The Birth of Venus

I also started reading Dewey: The Small Town Library Cat Who Touched the World. I love cats and I love libraries, so this seemed like a slam dunk. It turns out that a 300 page book about a cat who lives in a library is too much for me... so I quit half way through.

And I started Bring Up the Bodies, the sequel to Wolf Hall, but had to return it to the library before I finished because it was not renewable.

Currently reading:  
Tolstoy, Leo - Anna Karenina

Movies (no resolution; just to keep track)
The Artist
Underworld: Awakening
The Hunger Games
Wrath of the Titans
The Avengers
Mirror Mirror
Men in Black 3 
Magic Mike
The Dark Knight Rises
