New Books

I splurged and bought 3 books on Amazon this past weekend and they arrived today and I am so totally stoked to get reading!

The Hunger Games because it is what everyone in my family was recommending two months ago, not just because the movie is coming out. My sister-in-law took it everywhere with her - basketball games, dinner with her kids, everywhere! So, its gotta be good, right?

I also got the new Jen Lancaster novel - yes! fiction! - so excited to read her fiction because all of her other books have all been autobiographical. So fun!

And....I already started reading this one within 1 minute of walking in the door tonight - MWF seeking BFF. About ... wait for it ... a married white female seeking a best friend as an adult. As someone who has the best BFFs every from childhood, who all live hours and hours and hours away from me, I am hoping this will make me feel better - other women seek this out, as well! And maybe I will find a path to find new besties in KC.

Yay for new books!!!!!

I think Hunger Games is going to be on my 'to read' list. I've heard it's an amazing book, and the ladies that have told me that suggested I read the last three books that I've been involved in, so I suppose I should trust her! If you like some sci-fi ish type reading (I don't usually, but this one is good), you can add "Across The Universe" by Beth Revis. It's written for YA, so it was a quick read for me.

If you haven't started The Hunger Games yet it will SUCK YOU IN. A friend loaned it to me but I was in the middle of another book. I'm not the type that can read multiple books at once. Anyway, I picked up my Nook and the battery had completely discharged and it wouldn't even turn on while plugged in. I thought to myself, "I'll just flip through the Hunger Games and read the first couple of chapters to get a feel of what it's about." Yeah, I didn't put it down until I finished it.
