this past month i've been trying to finish up some books that i've had sitting around, along with some new ones too. sadly, nothing has rocked my socks off so i'd love to hear what y'all are reading and get some inspiration.
"mockingjay" by suzanne collins. i had read the first two from the series earlier last year and just never got around to reading the last one. i pretty much agree with what most had to say about it, good just not my favorite from the series. i just wish i had read it right away because for a little bit i was reading it and having a hard time remembering what had happened from the last one. amazing series though if you haven't read it.
"the best of me" by nicholas sparks. i really don't like being negative about a book, but this one wore me out. so not my favorite of his. sorry wish i could say i loved it.
"extremely loud and incredibly close" by jonathan safran foer. i received this for Christmas and sadly had no idea it was book first. i had seen the previews for the movies and am anxious to see it, but was so surprised i hadn't seen it on the bookshelves before. absolutely beautifully written. although can we rename the title to "extremely loud and incredibly sad". bring your tissues for this one folks.
"the marriage plot" by jeffrey eugenides. i picked it up because it's been on the bestseller list for so long, i thought surely this has to be an awesome read. wrong. just wasn't my cup of tea.
"safe haven" by nicholas sparks. i know i'm diving back into the sparks. i have had this for awhile and figured i give it ago. so far i'm enjoying it much better than the last one i read. well see though.
after i finish "safe haven" i'm lost, so would love to hear what's on your nightstand or kindle.
