Lately I've been on a nonfiction reading lots of novels about European aristocracy, including a book about the final days of the Russian aristocracy called Former People. It's a little long, and drags in some places, but it was great to learn more about Russia's transition from monarchy to dictatorship (and communism). Unfortunately the aristocracy doesn't fare well in the transition, as you might imagine.
I have a few other books on my list for this summer, but time is running out! The 2013-2014 school year will be here before I know it, and with it a great deal of my free time. My goal is to try to keep reading each night before bed, that way I can be sure to keep up the habit!
