This Friday’s Question: 

Recommend It: Which book from the last 10 you’ve read would you recommend to a friend?

Wow…I don’t know that I could narrow it down to just one!!!  Here’s a list of the last 10 books that I’ve read:

Cinder – Marissa Meyer 
Catching Fire – Suzanne Collins 
The Yoga Club – Cooper Lawrence 
An O’Brien Family Christmas – Sherryl Woods 
Delerium – Lauren Oliver 
The Language of Flowers – Vanessa Diffenbaugh 
The Host – Stephanie Meyer 
Sweet Inspiration – Penny Watson 
Wish Upon A Star – Sarah Morgan 
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs

Of these I would say that The Host & Catching Fire are 100% must reads!!  But I would also very highly recommend everyone read Delerium & The Language of Flowers!  And for those that are not afraid of the YA label…Cinder is amazing…It didn’t even “feel” like YA to me!  Hopefully I’ll have my review of it up soon:)

  1. Of my last 10 books, 5 of them were by new-to-me authors. Unfortunately of those 5, I abandoned 4 of the books.

    Using an e-reader and borrowing audiobooks from the library allow me to branch out into authors and genres I wouldn’t necessarily take a chance on at a book$tore. It also, however, makes me more likely to abandon a book if it’s boring, going in circles, or if the author uses a writing technique that makes my head explode.

  2. I recently read Catching Fire, too! That whole series was so phenomenal, but not at all what I was expecting. I’m curious to see what you think of the third book.

    I’m reading Cinder right now and enjoying it a lot. Looking forward to your review!
