I’ve always been a reader. I love getting lost in a book, often feeling as though I know the characters. I know I am not alone in this – based on the number of book review posts I read each week, I know others are just like me. Although I do use Goodreads to keep track of what I’ve read and what I want to read, I thought this would be a fun way to document the books I’ve read, in more detail. Welcome to Recent Readings! I plan on doing this quarterly – and I hope that you find some new reads!
First up, The Good Girl by Mary Kubica. My sister gave me this one, and I have to be honest, I didn’t really get in to it until about half way through. I won’t give anything away, but the ending really took me by surprise and I found myself not wanting to put it down for the last five or so chapters.
The next few books deserves a little disclaimer: If you are not a preteen at heart and love young lit, like me, skip ahead! I absolutely loved The Selection series. (The Selection, The Elite, The Crown). I read all three in a matter of a few weeks. With two littles and a lot on my plate, that is a huge accomplishment! I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one, The Heir.
Luckiest Girl Alive. Eh. That’s pretty much how I sum this one up. Ani really bothered me, but I kept reading because I wanted to see how it ended. If you read it, what did you think? I was hoping to like it more since it seems to be pretty popular.
Have you read any of these five books? Which did you like, didn’t like? Also, I’d love to know what you are reading now – I’m always adding books to my Goodreads list. If you are on Goodreads too, please add me so I can get recommendations from you!
