4 Books in a 10 Day (week) YOU Challenge….
only 4 books?? I seriously love reading and could name off way more then 4 books! You know, with blogging now being in my life, the only thing in my life I feel it has interfered with, is my reading of books. Good interesting books, I should say…. because after all, I have since read Mom Blogging For Dummies, Complete Idiot’s Guide to WordPress, and WordPress for Dummies. All three, cover to cover. I’m a lot smarter now, about WordPress anyways, but not highly recommended reading! So today I will share with you my current top 4 reads:
My 4 Books, in no particular order:
1. Phillipa Gregory books. Any and all of them. I am seriously crazy about her books, subjects, and her style of writing. She takes historical events, and fills in the unrecorded spaces with her imagination. All of them are turn pagers, completely addicting.
2. Dean Koontz, What The Night Knows. I love most of Dean Koontz’s thrillers, although many of them do include a lot of way too gory details. What the Night Knows has the perfect amount of chill, suspense, and “spirit world”, and is my top favorite of his books.
3. Sophie Kinsella, Twenties Girl. Sophie Kinsella is a fluff writer, the kind of story-teller you take along to the beach for a light and humorous read. Many of her books drive me a little nuts actually, because most of the characters are a little too fluffy. I picked up Twenties Girl on a day I was in a real bad mood, and I went to the grocery store looking for chocolate. I bought chocolate and this book, and it put me in a good mood instantly. The main character is absolutely adorable, and although I read this book a long time ago, I still think of it often. It’s the kind of book I wish was a weekly TV show, so I could enjoy it each week.
4. Tatiana De Rosney, Sarah’s Key. This is a fictional book based on the true events of the Jewish roundup in Paris in 1942. This book is highly emotional, shocking, and so, so, moving. Even just thinking about this book makes me tear up. I just google it actually, and found there is a movie… I’m not sure I could watch it, that’s how much it affects me… maybe one night when I’m home alone. I really don’t like it when others see me do the ugly cry!
Thanks for reading! Have a fabulous weekend – maybe grab yourself a book and relax a little!
