    Fit it into your schedule. How many total pages (add both books' pages) do you need to read? Divide that with the number of days you have left until school. STICK TO READING THAT AMOUNT EACH DAY. And if you have to take notes, keep some sticky notes and a bookmark with you. Sticky note the pages that might include things that you need to write notes about. I'm actually doing this as well. I'm almost done with the book. One of my friends is in the same place as you are, only he started one of the books about a week ago, He asked me can he finish 2 books in 1 month. I gave him the above advice. BTW, hopefully those 2 books (or at least 1) is popular enough to be on Cliffnotes or Sparknotes. You could also check there if you are struggling.

    Depends on what kind of books you are into. I love mysteries and a good thriller. i have read a book by Dean Koontz about 5 times i love it so much. the book is called "The Husband" .

    Its about a guy who gets a call from someone informing him that his wife has been kidnapped and that he can get her back for 2 million, i don't want to give to much away otherwise it will spoil it, i couldn't put it down and it takes me a long time to get into a book usually, but this one gripped me from beginning to end.

    Others are:

    Dean Koontz: Forever Odd

    Danielle Steel:Derailed

    I reccomend any book by Mitch Albom. My favorite of his was "The Five People You Meet in Heaven." My other two favorites of his are "Tuesdays with Morrie," and "For One More Day." Any of these are an excellent choice to read. They also aren't disgustingly long, either, only about 200 pages or a little more or less.

    Anything by Nicholas Sparks is awesome! I wouldn't bother reading "The Guardian, A walk to remember or the Notebook" if you have already watched the movies. He has many more that are real page turners.
