When I was a little girl I begged my Mom to change my name to Page so I could own a book store called Pages when I grew up. I was a smart little thing, LOL! I love to read and if there was a creed where I could just read books all day I would be in heaven. Instead, I will just blog about the books I have been reading lately.
I read a lot of books over Christmas break. I seriously had a huge stack of books on my nightstand and completely finished those books and had to go buy more! Thank goodness for Amazon and Hastings! Yes, I still love “real” books. I buy/rent digital too but those are mostly just to read at work or on the go. I still love the feel of a book in my hands and the smell of the pages.
So what have I been reading? Let’s hit the highlights…
I will start with the book I just finished, Jodi Picoult’s Leaving Time. Excuse my language but this book was a totally mind fuck. I feel like I need to go back and reread it just to get the full experience. I have loved Jodi Picoult ever since I took Plain Truth to the beach with me over Spring Break many moons ago. She is a brilliant writer and talks about real life subjects like assisted suicide, school shootings, adoption, God, the Holocaust, and many more. I have read )and own) all of her books and I highly suggest reading her books ASAP.
Emily Griffin’s The One and Only was really good too. Not on JP level but I still loved it. I believe that I have read all of her books too. This book was set in Chicago and I love learning about places I have never been before. It has a LOT of John Hughes references so if you love his movies then you will love his books!! I will admit that this book stressed me out though with all the home remodeling and book deadlines she was up against, LOL!!
I finally finished the latest Percy Jackson book. I love this series so I’m not sure what took me so long to finish it but I did! I am almost ashamed to say that most of my Greek Mythology knowledge has come from these books but I am kicking some major ass on Trivia Crack because of it. It says on the cover that it is the last battle ever but they left it with a cliffhanger so I wouldn’t be surprised if there was another.
I listened to Robert Galbraith aka JK Rowling’s The Cuckoo’s Calling and The Silkworm on audiobook. I rent them from my local library and upload them to an app on my phone. Super nerd, I know. I was really interested in reading these because, hello, JK Rowling! I love a good murder/mystery and these did not disappoint! I read that they were going to be made into a TV series and I just don’t see how. Most tv shows in the murder mystery genre have a case solved every episode and this series only has two cases so far. I guess they will stretch it out?? You know I will watch it anyway…LOL!!
So that’s what I’ve been reading lately, what have you read??
