So I've dragged my butt into the library and finally got myself a library card a couple months ago! It's been an absolute blast getting back into reading! I use to love reading growing up but then it was interrupted by annoying teachers making you read and writing book reports on them. Thus, I started to not like reading. Before long, I was in college. I never had time to read. I never really wanted to read because textbooks take up enough reading as it is. So my goal this summer was to get back into reading. I started to read a couple of books and absolutely loved it. Although, every now and then I would get antsy for some reason and don't have enough patience for reading. My friend travels a lot and listens to books on audio. I thought I'd try it out and I've become addicted. I love audio books because then I can get so many other things done. Mainly I listen to audio books when I"m getting ready for the day which HAH takes me an hour so perfect for listening while I make myself presentable for the day. So here's the books I've read/listened to this summer. Let me know about the books you guys are reading. I would love some suggestions!
The Blonde Theory by Kristin Harmel
This book is interesting. It has a good ending and I believe it's quite women empowering.
The Messenger by Jan Burke
This book is quite good! It's about a young man with a secret and has a bit of romance in it but mostly adventure!
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
This is also a movie now with Kristen Stewart from "Twilight".
Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
I loved this book. It's about an odd girl that moves to a new school that wears interesting clothing and sings and plays a ukulele in the cafeteria. It's quite funny and it's a really cute story about being yourself and not caring about what others thinkMy Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Excellent book! Highly recommend it to anyone. I had no idea what to expect in this story but it has some great surprises in the book that keeps you hooked. It's well written. She writes from different standpoints of the characters in the book.
Right now I'm listening on audio "Memoirs of A Geisha"
I thought I would be bored listening to this because I've already seen the movie. I was totally wrong! So well written. It's probably the most interesting book I've read this summer.
I'm also working on Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates but I've barely gotten into it.
