I’m kinda obsessed with books.

I’m one of those people who can get completely absorbed in a good book, and any chance of pulling me out of my reverie will be almost impossible. If I’m being honest, and I am, I’m also one of those people who can become distraught with separation anxiety after I finish an extremely good book. I get that involved in the lives of the characters. And I’m absolutely, 100% okay with this part of me.

I also do not take book reviews lightly. So here is a collection of books in no particular order that I deem to be completely worth your time and even more worth the emotions that are to follow the books’ endings. This collection will constantly be a work in progress. And as I find a new one I really enjoyed, I will post about it on my main page to let y’all know!

  • HARRY POTTER — [no explanation required. because duh.]
  • Any book by Robin Cook or Jodi Picoult — Yes, I know this is a very broad group of books, but I love their collections and I just cannot pick one or two that I enjoy the most
    • I would recommend these books for someone who enjoys their reads to be based off of factual information and/or events that could actually occur
  • Gemma Doyle trilogy by Libba Bray — Now, I read these books many years ago, probably far earlier than I should have. They’re definitely interesting… And different. If you’re interested in a book that is not like something you have read before, these just might be for you!
    • A Great and Terrible Beauty
    • Rebel Angels
    • The Sweet and Far Thing
  • Overachievement by Dr. John Eliot — I have personally met Dr. Eliot and his lectures are so inspirational. I have blog posts that have blossomed from the way he makes me think about events and life. It isn’t a typical “reading” book, but still worth it.

Do you have a favorite book? I would love to hear about it! Comment below with title and author, and I might just read it [okay, I probably will]!

Can’t. Stop. Reading.

Howdy, lovelies! In case you hadn’t yet realized, I’m obsessed with books and reading. I really, really wish I could read more [and that doesn’t include textbooks]. So I’m currently reading Divergent by Veronica Roth [so, so, SO good, y’all!] and I started thinking about what I would read after I finish this series. I know that’s crazy, but that’s me. During my search, I came across what will most likely be one of my most favorite, go-to websites from now on: What Should I Read Next?

highly recommend any book lovers in need of a new book or some reading inspiration to check this website out and bookmark it. I haven’t yet gotten to use one of their recommendations, but I know for certain that I will be in the near future.

Let me know what y’all think of the website and its recommendations, as well as any books you find that are worth sharing! I love learning about new, unknown books.

I don’t usually read the “popular” books [like Divergent] because I have found that they aren’t really that great, but Divergent has been an exception. But for example, I read The Hunger Games long before they hit mainstream and were even on commercials for a movie. I wasn’t at all surprised when I found out the books were being made into movies. But I found it hilarious that suddenly everyone was reading the books and would ask me if I’ve read them yet, and I’m just like, “Yeah, forever and a day ago”.

LONG STORY SHORT: check out the website and let me know what y’all find.

Books on books on books!

I’m one of those people who can get completely absorbed in a good book, and any chance of pulling me out of my reverie will be almost impossible. If I’m being honest, and I am, I’m also one of those people who can become distraught with separation anxiety after I finish an extremely good book. I get that involved in the lives of the characters. And I’m absolutely, 100% okay with this part of me.

I also do not take book reviews lightly. So I have decided to pull together is a collection of books that I deem to be completely worth your time and even more worth the emotions that are to follow the books’ endings. This collection will constantly be a work in progress and I so look forward to getting to add more and more books to the list! I don’t have many listed at present time, simply because if I remembered every book I ever enjoyed, I wouldn’t have enough memory for anything else.

As I add more books, I will “review” them if you may, or something along those lines. Basically, let y’all know that I have added another book or two or three.
