Read

I truly love to read. Getting lost in a book, when you suddenly realize several hours have gone by while reading, is one of the things in life I treasure! Recently, I have also been listening to books on my iPod when I am walking to the class, in the car and even on a run! It makes the time go by supaaa fast.

I also received a Kindle for my birthday, in November, and it is by far one of the best gifts I have ever received!

My New Wonderful Kindle!

Here is a list of my favorite books, in no particular order (I will update this regularly 🙂 )

  1. The Harry Potter series- J.K. Rowling
  2. Water for Elephants- Sara Gruen
  3. The Help- Kathryn Stockett
  4. Prince of Tides- Patrick Conroy
  5. The Stand- Steven King
  6. Nicholas Sparks books- I will admit it, I am a sucker for these romance novels! Safe Haven, The Lucky One, The Choice, The Rescue, True Believer, At First Sight
  7. Very Valentine, Brava Valentine- Adriana Trigiani
  8. The Art of Racing in the Rain- Garth Stein
  9. The Grapes of Wrath- John Steinbeck
  10. Anne of Green Gables- L.M. Montgomery

  1. I also love to read. The Hunger Games trilogy was amazing. Its nice to see that you read Anne of Green Gables!

  2. I just finished the last book of the triology, I wanted to finish it but it’s also bittersweet because it was sooo good! Now I need to find a new book, any suggestions?
    Yes, Anne of Green Gables is a classic! The movies are also good 🙂

    I really like Kurt Vonnegut. Slaughterhouse Five and Cat’s Cradle are classics. He also has a couple books of short stories which are really fun to read in 15-30 min. They are Welcome to the Monkey House and Look at the Birdie.

    And yes, we will have to chat about The Stand soon.

    • Thanks for the ideas! I am looking for something captivating like The Stand. I told Christine about this series, but I can’t remember if you were part of the conversation. Anyway, you should try reading The Hunger Games trilogy. I don’t think you will be disappointed!
