I've decided to give goodreads a try. I'm hoping it will help guide me to new books that I'd enjoy reading. I already have quite the must read list going right now, but it never hurts to stumble across a new one, right?
I go through phases with reading. I'll go a couple of months without reading a single book, but then other months I will devour books as if it's my job. Right now I'm in a heavy reading phase.
I have a second generation Kindle that I have always loved. It's been pretty good to me the last several years. The downside now is that I have to prop up the charger in just a way to get it to charge at all, and it loses battery quickly. Other than that, it has worked great and treated me well.
But alas, I have found something new and improved that I really, really, really want. After countless hours of researching stats, specs, reviews, etc., I have decided that I need a Kindle Fire HD in my life. That will be my next present to myself. Next pay day if I am able to, which I hope.
Isn't she beautiful?!
So what have I been reading? Well I just finished all 5 books of the Percy Jackson series, and I really loved them! I didn't know anything about the gods, but I quickly caught on. They were fun and easy to breeze through.
Last night I started on the Emily Giffin book I forgot I purchased back in July. Oops. That was a fun surprise to find on my Kindle! I'm almost halfway through, and I'm really enjoying it. I'm a big Emily Giffin fan and have read all her work. Any time she releases a book, I immediately buy it. Same goes for Jen Lancaster and Sophie Kinsella.
Once I'm done with Where We Belong, I'll read Divergent. It comes strongly recommended. I really have no idea what the series is about, but I had no clue what I was getting into with The Hunger Games series either, and that worked out wonderfully!
Naturally, I will read Insurgent after.
Then, while I wait for the third book in the series to come out, I will read another strongly recommended book. Again, no real clue what it's about, but I've heard great things from friends that I trust.
After those will come the Jen Lancaster books that I have pre-ordered. I know one of them will be available in January, but the other won't be out until much later.
What are you reading? Anything I should add to my list?
