    What are you reading?

    Advertisements
    I need a new book or series to read. Sometimes I think it's sad how fast I finish books and then have to go on a hunt for another.

    So, do you have any suggestions? What are you reading now and what is it about?

    Have you read Gone Girl? That's the one that blew up for the author and my God, it was addicting. I loved it. It took a little while to get sucked in but I was so sad when it was over.

    I juuuust finished The Glass Castle and it was also excellent.

    I started The Kite Runner the other night. I'm not hooked yet but I'm gonna give it a few more chapters before I give up.

    I was looking into this one. I tried to get into The Hunger Games, but it wasn't for me. When I read about this one, I thought it was a similar idea and wasn't sure if I should try it.

    I am reading American Wife. It's really good but , I don't know much about books that are series. I just pick books based off the NY Times Bestseller List.

    Or I wander around the bookstore and look through different genres to find a book that will keep my interest.

    I just downloaded the wizard of oz (I've never read the book) but I think I got a funky edition, something just doesn't seem right.

    I also want to get Confession of a Military Wife I've heard it's funny

    I really like the TV show Bones, and she has a book series that is similar to the tv show. They're def not really "make you think" kind of books (they do have a lot of medical terms and science and stuff going on though), but I like them.
