The one thing I was super excited about once I finished school was to be able to read! Read a book for pleasure and enjoyment, and not mandatory school reading. I’m an avid reader, reading is my distraction from daily responsibilities and stress, food for my heart and soul when the the realities of real life are too difficult, sad, or tragic (which is pretty much anytime I turn on the news). I prefer to read Fiction and I’ll admit it, I’m a hopeless romantic. I’m a sucker for sappy “boy meets girl, they fall in love and live happily ever after” types of stories, but I love impossible love stories. If a book can grab my attention and interest within the first few chapters, I’ve been known to not get anything done. I’ll pull an all nighter for an “unputdownable” book!
Now that school has permanently ended for me, I have more time to cuddle with a good book (or my Nook) on the couch and stick my nose in something. It’s answering the call of my inner couch potato. I’ll be posting about what books I’ve read at the end of each month. Here’s what I read in July:
I fell in love with Jamie McGuire after reading Beautiful Disaster, it was so successful that she made books for all the Maddox Brothers (the characters in Beautiful Disaster). I’ve read most of her books and I love many of them. Beautiful Sacrifice is a light, easy read (most of her books are) I loved the characters and the dialogue. I found myself giggling and becoming invested in the characters. If you like Young Adult and Romance, you’ll like this series! I strongly recommend Beautiful Disaster first.
If you like mystery and suspense, you’ll like this book! It’s a “Gone Girl” whodunnit type, and I enjoy a good suspense novel. This book had over 25,000 reviews on Amazon and broke an all-time sales record, I had to see what the fuss was about! It’s not an easy read, it’s voiced by three characters so it takes some paying attention, I’m glad I read this highly acclaimed book, but it was just “okay” to me. This book is also set to hit the big screen, I’ll watch it for sure!
