Talk about it Tuesday: Favorite Books

Talk about it Tuesday
Besides crafting – I love to read. Like, love it. love it. But sadly, since my son was born 2 years ago I had only read one book.

one.

One book in two years. sad.

Then the Friday before last, I picked up The Hunger Games. It has been sitting on my shelf for over a year waiting for me - I finished it Friday night. (and still fed, bathed, and clothed my kids!)

Then I on Saturday, I picked up Catching fire and flew through that one too!

MockingJay had come out after my husband bought the first too for me and I yearned for it – however, I had a birthday party last Friday for my kiddo to get ready for so I promised myself I wouldn’t buy or start it until it was over.

I started it Saturday morning.

I feel like I have gotten a piece of me, that has been missing for so long, back!

So, now it two years, I have read 4 books.  I have “The Help” sitting on my nightstand ready to go next – but I have nothing in queue after that – so my dear friends – what books do you absolutely love? What series am I missing out on that I JUST HAVE TO READ! I’ve been out of the “book loop” for so long I am not sure what is out there -

Enlighten a girl, will ya!?

I am curious to hear about what books are out there also. I want to read The Help, but don't have it yet... I am reading The Neverending Story right now but it is slow going because I only read it when I get to "close the door" if you catch my drift. I really enjoyed Hunger Games, what did you think?

Hardly any of it is new or current, but you can see all the books I've read since Christmas '10 on my blog's Recently Read page.

A few of my favorites: Book Thief, Pope Joan, Unbroken, The Forgotten Garden. Loved all of the Hunger Games and The Help too. Welcome back to reading. :)

I'm kind of in a rut right now too, lately I just go to the library and browse until I come up with something interesting. I loved the Hunger Games and The Help. Now I need to find the time to see the movie.
