Well it's been awhile since we talked books...I always love hearing what books are tickling your fancy! I have to be honest and say I think I went the good month of December without picking up a thing to read. But now that the craziness of the season is over I'm on a book hoarding mission. I also told myself this year I'd utilize the kindle app on my ipad more, but I keep finding these great used books and some great deals on newer ones so my book pile is looking a bit overwhelming at the moment. But here's what's on my nightstand for this month.
"Decision Points" by George W. Bush - fascinating read and so glad that I had a chance to read it. I loved hearing his thoughts regarding certain events. It's not light reading though so it took me awhile with this one, but worth it.
"The Wedding" by Nicholas Sparks- this is an older book of his and it's one that I've had for awhile sitting on my shelf. It's sort of a continuation of "The Notebook" and I have to be honest and say it was just sort of boring. Not my fav. of his is a good way of putting it.
"The Courage Tree" by Diane Chamberlain- good read...kind of predictable though. Anyone have any better recommendations of hers besides Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes?
"The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins....- ABSOLUTELY loved this book! It's crazy to me because I read the back and was like this is so not my genre of book and even went into it going I'm not going to like this, but I LOVED it and could not put it down. I never read Harry Potter or Twilight if that helps sway you to read it. Definitely worth the read.
"Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen- just started and love this book so far. I figured I'd better read it before the movie comes out. Love Reese Witherspoon!
"How to Bake a Perfect Life" by Barbara O'Neal....-Target had this one on a big display shelf on sale...I couldn't resist it's cover is super cute.
"Catching Fire" by Suzanne Collins.... -hope it's as good as the first!
"The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels" by Ree Drummond- cannot wait to read this!!
What's on your list?
