Book Reviews

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to read.

And, I'll pretty much read least once. Some of my favorite books I read every year. When I was single, I would consistently fall asleep reading only to wake up later with the light still on, book in hand. And just thinking about spending the day out at the river under the hot sun with a book makes me wish summer would hurry up and get here.

I really gained my love for books as a kid reading Nancy Drew. I would stay up super late at night, reading the suspenseful books, picturing myself in Nancy Drew's shoes. I even wanted to be the first female detective until one night while watching the news with my folks I realized they already had female detectives. Scratch that idea! Still, my love of reading continued.

I remember sitting in front of the heater as a little kid, sobbing away while reading Little Women. Poor Beth. To this day, I still cry a lot while reading books. They just move me.

Thankfully, BJ loves to read just as much as I do. Or maybe I love to read just as much as he does. Either way, it's something we both enjoy tremendously, and we love to share what we're reading with each other. Classic BJ behavior is to get so excited about something he's reading that he just has to share it with me. This goes on for a while until suddenly he's ready to go to bed, and I've barely gotten to read my own book!

My plan here is to start sharing book reviews. Nothing extraordinary, just highlights of different books I'm reading, have read, I'd recommend or wouldn't. You get the picture. So, check back if you also love to read or if you have any book recommendations, let me know and I'll add them to my list.

Yeah, share, share, share. I have enjoyed everything you've recommended, though I still haven't checked out the Twilight stuff. I think the previews to the movies ruined that for me. I just read an awesome book someone else recommended called Hunger Games. It's one of those that you can't put down, well I couldn't, until your eyes are pleading with you. I've never been one to fall asleep reading, I just have to make myself stop once it's whatever in the morning.
