Who loves to Read???

Recommended Posts

Ahhhh!! SO glad I found this! I jotted down so many books to add to my list to read! LOVE LOVE reading!! When I was a kid, me being "grounded" consisted of my mom taking my books away - not banning me from TV..hahaha.

 

For all you out there in love with Twilight series you MUST read the Mortal Instruments series! I actually ended up liking them better than Twilight, which I didn't think was possible.

 

Just started The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo today.

Cool I just found this thread! I will have to go back and read all of the previous entries to jot down some future reads :) Just wanted to add a few VERY good books I've recently finished reading - they're different, but really addictive reads :)

 

- Virgil & Beatrice (the latest Yann Martel...if you've read Life of Pi, it's the same kind of weird dark story)

- The Gargoyle (so so good!! not what I would usually pick up but glad I did)

- Water for Elephants (been sitting on my shelf for ages - who knew a story about a circus in the 30s could be so compelling!)

 

Just thought I'd pass those recommendations along :)

Miss D - I read the mortal instruments too! LOVED THEM!!! The next one isn't coming out until October right? I may have to re-read before I get that one...it's been a little while since I read them!

 

I just finished reading House Rules by Jodi Picoult & it was really good! Kind of predictable, but it really opened my eyes on the subject of autism & more specifically aspergers.

I have heard good things about Water for Elephants, although its not something I would have picked up on my own, I really want to get it now!

 

Manders, I had no idea there was a Men's Version! Hilarious!

I have picked up that book a million times and I never bought it because #1 it was small, so it would be a quick read and #2, it enver interested me, however, after seeing the movie previews, I def want to read it now! :)

I had no interest either Jenn...but then Oprah had Julia Roberts on her show talking about it & it definitely peaked my interest!! I'm wondering if I should wait & watch the movie first though? I will hate the movie after I read the book...And I LOVE that there is a men's version! I should have gotten both so I could read them back to back!

 

And I hadn't even heard of water for elephants until this thread...but you girls have convinced me! Maybe we can swap sometime Jenn! wink.gif

I have to read the book first, Because if I watch the movie first I will have no interest in reading the book....It's my weird little Quirk I guess! LOL

I have had the "Dear John" book forever, and I really want to see the movie, but I am waiting until I get around to reading the damn book! LOL

 

Between this thread, People I work with and also hearing about the movie that they are making from the book, that got me really interested!

 

We can def do a swap Manders! I love to read!

I have that book on my wish list :). Since I have your approval, I'm going to go ahead and get it.

I read water for elephants. I thought it was good. I'm not sure why it got so much hype, but it was good, I enjoyed it.

Oohhh Nikki - if my mom weren't coming up & wanting to read that book you could totes get it from me!

 

Only problem with swapping with you Jenn would be the shipping!! It would probably be cheaper to buy the book! But we can definitely look into it! wink.gif
