Need2Read 6/7/11

Alrighty, I'm here with Need2Read!  First off, I want to remind you that the LEGACY blog tour has started, and the prize giveaway at the end will be an iPod Nano with a custom Legacy skin.  Check out the sidebar to the right for a link to the tour schedule!

Need2Read is a weekly meme hosted by Offkey wherein you post a list of one or more books you absolutely NEED to read. Post your list on your blog and leave a comment here so that I and other readers can find it -- or just share your Need2Reads in the comments!
1. Psycho by Robert Bloch

I may be the only person who didn't know that Psycho was based on a book, but now that I do know, I gots to read it.

2. Eden Close by Anita Shreve

Anita Shreve's first book - and it sounds fantastic.  Obviously it launched a humongous career.  Anyone read it?

3. Hold Still by Nina LaCour

It wasn't explicit on the back cover, but I'm pretty sure the main character's best friend commits suicide, and the book is about her struggle to hang on to her life in the aftermath.  Sounds really compelling and oddly familiar.  I think this might be a good one for me to read personally.

4. Every Last One by Anna Quindlen

This book appeals to me because I love emotional journey books.  Again, back cover isn't explicit about the goings-on in this book, but the emotional theme is definitely there.  I'll have to read it to find out what's what.

5. The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross

By fellow HQT author Kady Cross, which is incentive enough if it weren't for that gorgeous cover and the fascinating plot description.  I actually haven't read a YA book in a while; perhaps its time for me to make a landing again.

Those are my Need2Reads for the week -- what are yours?
