2014 Summer Reading Challenge ~ Share Your Reading List

It's not too late to sign up for my 2014 Summer Reading Classic Film Book Challenge! You have until July 15th to sign-up and until September 1st to read and write all of your reviews.

If you did sign up, please share your reading list! It doesn't have to be final and can include a variety of titles you are considering. Here is mine.

Back Street by Fannie Hurst
Dangerous Rhythym: Why Movie Musicals Matter by Richard Barrios
The Invention of Morel by Adolfo Bioy Casares
Life Beyond Measure: Letters to My Great-Grandaughter by Sidney Poitier
A Life of Barbara Stanwyck: Steel-True 1907-1940 by Victoria Wilson
Missing Reels by Farran Smith Nehme
Stella! Mother of Modern Acting by Sheana Ochoa
Steve McQueen: A Passion for Speed by Frederic Brun

Here are a few books that I'll be reviewing soon but won't be part of my summer reading challenge because I started/finished them much earlier.

Ann Dvorak: Forgotten Rebel by Christina Rice
Fritz Lang: The Nature of the Beast by Patrick McGilligan
Hollywood Digs: An Archaeology of Shadows by Ken LaZebnik

Share your list with me by commenting below! You can post your summer reading list on your blog or create a Goodreads bookshelf. I'll add your links to this post and to the main page for the book challenge.


  1. Well, as long as it doesn't have to be final...

    - I recently finished Sinclair Lewis' MAIN STREET, which inspired the movie I MARRIED A DOCTOR, so that'll be first. Should go up this week.

    - I own a copy of LADY CHATTERLEY'S LOVER, which was made into a foreign film in the 50s (French, I think), so that'll probably be next.

    - I have a graphic novel called THREE FINGERS, which is kinda like WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT as directed by David Cronenberg. It's set during the studio era of Hollywood.

    - I also have a Marilyn Monroe biography.

    Beyond these, I don't know yet.

  2. I'm really looking forward to your review of the new Ann Dvorak biography!


Leave me a comment! If it is a long one, make sure you save a draft of it elsewhere just in case Google gobbles it up and spits it out.
