    What I’m Reading

    I love when I find a book that I just can’t put down. One of these books is a popular one that I just had an opportunity to read. Now, I can’t believe I didn’t read it sooner! I’m late to the party, but I am obsessed with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I highly recommend you check it out if you are a fan of mysteries. This book had me guessing what was going to happen next, I love that in a book. I also created a little amazon widget for the side bar of the site. Now you have a few options of books I recommend and…

    Lee Child | A Wanted Man

    This Tuesday, I had the opportunity to see Lee Child speak about his new book A Wanted Man: A Jack Reacher Novel. I love the main character of his books, Jack Reacher. Jack is a strong man with compromised sense of morals. He travels the country and finds himself in trouble along the way. I first learned about the series from the CBS Sunday Morning Story on Lee Child. (If you are interested in the series, check out that story.) If you like good mysteries and action books, read the Jack Reacher series. I would start with the first book Killing Floor (Jack Reacher, No. 1). I am also very…

    I am so excited about Emily Giffin’s new book Where We Belong. I think it is her best book! Where We Belong On Tuesday, I went to a talk and book signing for the release of the new book. I started reading on my train ride home and could not put it down! It’s one of those books that I want to race through to see how it ends but I want to slow down because I don’t want it to end! Where We Belong is about an 18 year old girl, Kirby, on her quest to meet her biological mother. Emily tells the story from the perspective of both…

    Harlan Coben | Stay Close

    Have you read Harlen Coben’s books? I LOVE mysteries and his books are perfect to keep you up at night turning pages. Yesterday, I was lucky enough to attend a book signing for his new novel Stay Close. Meeting Harlan was a great experience, he has a fun personality and explained the process of how he comes up with ideas and develops them. He promised that Stay Close was going to be a good one. In addition to the great books he writes he also has a progressing series of books about the character Myron Bolitar. My sister started reading this series got me and our uncle hooked. I can’t…

    What I’m Reading

    Looking for a good book? I just finished a really great trilogy. A friend of mine recommended the Hunger Games and I am so glad I read it. The series stars Katniss Everdeen, a girl who lives in the country of Panem formerly North America. She is a tribute in the Hunger Games, a deadly competition among the 12 districts of Panem. Each book is a progression from the games to a bigger purpose. It’s a quick and easy read, I couldn’t put the books down! The Hunger Games Catching Fire (The Second Book of the Hunger Games) Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, Book 3) Note: I am an Amazon Associate…
