I enjoy reading so much, but it has been too long since I have actually sat down and read a book. I got motivated perusing Amazon and decided to make a purchase. For a couple of years, I read books on my Kindle (no longer have it) and my iPad 2 (don't have that anymore either). Now, I think I honestly enjoy reading an actual book. There is something about holding it and smelling the pages...Am I weird?
I definitely want to read more this year, so I may be talking about books on this blog. Don't worry, it won't be boring.
Gone Girl. I am not even close to being done, I would say I'm about 1/3 of the way through. Yowza! This book is cray. It's super interesting, told from the first person perspective, and has a bit of back of forth between past and present. To me, it feels like a movie, which may be the reason a movie based on the book was made. It is to be released this year (Ben Affleck plays "Nick", that should be interesting). When I first started reading my mind went straight to the disappearance and murder of Laci Peterson. The story seemed to be similar, but I was wrong. There are so many twists and turns and I am excited to see how it all turns out. I am not big on mysteries, but this book may have swayed me to read more in that genre. There is quite a bit of profanity in the book, but it's how the characters talk, so what can I say? It's not every other word, but there are moments. If it gets to be too much, I just scan over them. So, pick up Gone Girl is what I am saying. I think you'll enjoy it.
Tindell Baldwin called, Popular. The book is about a woman who struggled in high school being in the popular crowd. I have to say the best how-to books come from those with experience. I haven't really had a chance to delve into it. I will definitely being reviewing it once I'm finished. I picked up the Kindle version for free! You can't beat that! I minored in youth ministry at Liberty, so this was definitely be something I enjoy. I say the teenage years really form us into the people we are to be. Some may argue that, but I honestly think its the pinnacle of any person's life.
Hunger Games series. I have watched the movies, but never read the books and I heard they were really good. I like easy reads that I can just read without having to think too much. After that I may invest in a real head scratcher.
