Reading Addict

I am beyond in love with reading. It is an obsession. My favorite part is discussing what I've read. I would love to recap on all the bored faces my boy friend has shot my way as I ramble on about a recent chapter. 

I am always looking for new books to read. If someone gives me a good testimonial on a book, I'll read is ASAP! 

Here are just a few of my favorite reads and why I love them dearly!

1. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. - We literally just finished reading this novel in my Honors English ll class. It totally amazed me. The cultural enlightenment was one of my favorite parts. It opens your eyes to an otherwise "easy to hate" culture. The actions among the characters totally bewilder you. I didn't think it was possible for one character to posses two traits so different in comparison. But, it is amazing! The movie is also good. Never as good as the book, but it was cool to compare my visualizations to how those of movie producers!

2. Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks. - I am super good at predicting what will happen next. This book made a liar out of me. It is suspenseful in that way that you don't get bored, but you don't get confused. I'm not a sci-fi person at all but the mysterious vibes Sparks puts off in this novel are off the charts!

3. Something Borrowed by Emily Griffen. - So, so, so, so, so, sooo much better than the movie! Rachel's thoughts throughout the scheme of things are amazingly written. This is the ideal quick summer read! I cannot wait to read the sequel, Something Blue!

I recently started the book Chill Factor by Sandra Brown! Upon request for good reads, my English teacher brought me this and commented that she could not put it down! I am about at chapter five I believe and I'm totally addicted. The imagery is fabulous. I can't wait to read farther!

A few other favorites of mine are anything Nicholas Sparks (I've read them all), Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, and Sam's Letters to Jennifer by James Patterson (love him as well!)

What are your "must read" suggestions!? I'd LOVE to hear your responses!


  1. That's a great list!! I love Sam's Letters to Jennifer! My must reads are "PS I love You, Gone Girl, In Her Shoes, The Help, and many more, lol, come on over to my blog and read all my reviews! ;) I am alway glad to meet a fellow book worm!

  2. I'd recommend "The Tyranny of Distance" by Geoffrey Blainey (, about how distance shapes history. Even if it sounds a bit dry, Blainety has a great writing style and throws in bunches of interesting anecdotes and odds and ends along the way.

  3. Anything by James Patterson is always a must read for me. I love his books.
