Good Reads

When I was a kid I used to stay up late reading books well past my bedtime. My mom would peek in on me and I would not-so-sneakily hide my book and pretend I was sleeping (totally fooled you didn't I, mom)? Nowadays it's no different, except instead of hiding my book I have a husband beside be complaining about the light and telling me to go to sleep. Lucky for him, these preggo hormones haven't kept me up much past 9pm these days.

Good Reads

With some down time (and sick time if we're being honest) over the holiday break I managed to sneak in a few good reads. I find good books almost addicting, when you find a good one you want to devour another good one asap. Here are a few good reads that have been on my nightstand lately...

Good Reads
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 
Currently reading this local author for book club and have this, this and this on my to-read list. I'm also pretty excited about this list of books being made into movies. Seeing the movie before reading the book always ruins the book for me, so I'll need to tackle some of these asap!

I'm always looking for recommendations, read any good ones lately?

  1. Well this makes me realize how far behind I am on my novel reading. I have been sucked into the tunnel of business and wellness reading. Not a bad thing either but it takes time away from the novels. Thanks for the selections. I'm on it!

  2. Love the list, Christine. Now I really need to carve out some "me" time so I can dig into some of these. I just finished the Hunger Games Trilogy over the holidays and now I'm just about to dive into the Insurgent Trilogy...I just got notice from the library that No. 1 is ready for me to pick up. Can't wait to get started. ;)

  3. I'm pretty excited about The Fault in Our Stars. I just reread it a few weeks ago!

  4. Voracious reader over here, too. My mom swears it's why my eyes are so bad now (from all that reading under the covers with a flashlight). Love passing this down to our girls. I'm excited to add some of these to my list, thanks for the recs, friend!

    Let's see, I recommend The Language of Flowers. Couldn't put it down. I just started The Goldfinch & it's sucking me in!

    PS. I love Audrey N's The Time Traveller's Wife. Her Fearful Symmetry wasn't what I expected but riveting all the same!

  5. We have the same taste in books! 4Mothers regularly does a What We're Reading feature (about once every three months). We have lots of suggestions over there :)

  7. Over the weekend I started (and finished...) The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches - the whole Flavia series is so good! And last night I started The Luminaries - intriguing so far. Gone Girl has always looked interesting, but never enough to 'add to cart' haha

  8. Ahh The Rosie Project is one of the best books I've read this year (and in a long time!). The Fault in Our Stars is fantastic and the movie trailer looks great too. Another young-adult book I highly recommend (and I literally just finished it mere minutes ago), is Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. A teenage love story set in the 80s - I couldn't put it down. Another great book I recently read is Me Before You by Jojo Moyes (also a great book club book - tons to discuss about it!).
