recent reads vol. 2
In the past few months I’ve read (& listened to) a bunch of books:
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl who Kicked the Hornets Nest &The Girl who Played with Fire by Steig Larsson: These had a lot of hype around them so I was apprehensive at first but I loved them. I was actually sad when I finished them because I know there won’t be anymore. I definitely recommend them, and I cannot wait for the American version of the movie to come out in December.
The Hunger Games, Catching Fire & Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins: I really liked these and am excited to see the first movie when it comes out next year. The 3rd book was a little drawn out but overall good.
Maine by J. Courtney Sullivan: I liked this but it was not as good as her first book Commencement. Out of the two I would definitely recommend Commencement before this one.
Violets of March by Sarah Jio: Love this book. I really like how Sarah Jio writes and I will probably start reading more of her books.
My Boyfriend Wrote a Book About Me… By Hilary Winston: I read this because it came free with my nook but I didn’t particularly like it. It’s supposed to be a book filled with short funny stories but none of her stories are actually funny.
I need some new stuff, any good recommendations?
Fall things I want
Dresses- Forever 21
Skirt and Top- H&M
Tights- American Apparel
Weird little shoes- DSW
My husband is very lucky I have cheap taste in clothing.
I have read a lot of books lately here are some of the best:
Commencement- J. Courtney Sullivan.
I could not put this book down. It’s about 4 best friends who meet in college and talks about their lives during college and for the 4 years after switching back and forth between each of their point of views.
Citizen Girl- Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus
I didn’t love the way this book was written but I thought it was a good story and somewhat relate able for recent graduates.
An Object of Beauty- Steve Martin
This book was well written and entertaining. It’s about a woman who works for art dealers in NY. It spoke a lot about the art world which I know nothing about so it was pretty informative as well.
Unbearable Lightness- Portia de Rossi
This is one of the saddest books I’ve ever read. It’s about Portia de Rossi and the eating disorder that took over her life when she was in her early twenties.
If You Were Here- Jen Lancaster
I’ve read (and liked) most of Jen Lancaster’s books which memoirs about her life. Although this book is her first novel you can tell the characters are based off of her and her husband. It is about them buying and remodeling their first house. This book was entertaining and kept my attention.
I have also read Pretty Little Liars 1-9 but will not bore you with those :)
