Reading List

I've really been getting back into reading lately.. and I imagine once Kevin has left for his deployment, I'll find myself reading even more. I thought I would share everything that I have read so far in 2011 and right now I'm working on my MUST read list or planning to read list.. a little input would be nice!

2011 already read list: -->and I must add, I have LOVED everything I have read so far.
~The House of Night Series 1-4.. Marked, Betrayed, Chosen, Untamed. I'm absolutely ADDICTED to this series. I have 5-8 ordered since the BX doesn't have the rest of the series.. they seriously can't get here fast enough.
~Life Laughs, by Jenny McCarthy... As with all Jenny books, she can be kind of, okay not kind of, but really.. crude. lol... If you get offended easily, then I wouldn't even bother picking this one or the next book up. lol. I am a HUGE fan of her books hahah
~Love, Lust, and Faking it, by Jenny McCarthy
~Safe Haven, by Nicholas Sparks.. one of my favorite authors!
~The Last Song, by Nicholas Sparks

~The House of Night Series 5-8.. They CANNOT get here fast enough!
~The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, by Stephenie Meyer.. it's a Twilight Novella.. I'm pretty excited to start it... it's already on my book shelf!
~The Blindside.. by Michael Lewis.. this is also on my shelf
~The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest, by Stieg Larsson.. this is also on my shelf, but i didn't realize it was the LAST in the series. boo.
~The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson
~The Girl who Played with Fire, by Stieg Larsson
~PS I love you, by Cecelia Ahern
~The Hunger Games Series, by Suzanne Collins
~The Lucky One, by Nicholas Sparks
~The Choice, by Nicholas Sparks
~Message in a Bottle, by Nicholas Sparks

Okay I want some input.. what are your favorite books and what do you recommend!!?! I'll be lucky if my list of books lasts me a month! lol!


  1. Charlie St. Cloud.
    Anything by Jodi Picoult- or at least the ones I have read.. My Sister's Keeper (book ending so different from movie), The Pact, and Nineteen Minutes. I have Perfect Match but have not read it yet.
    I just started a type of book that I never in a million years thought I would read and like. But Emily Giffin has 3 books that go together...I am reading Something Borrowed and so far, I really like it!
    I have some of these if you want to borrow any. Also, I like James Patterson and have some of his books as well and I have most of Dorothea Benton Frank books which I love if you want any of those. However, they all take place in areas around Charleston so that might have a lot to do with why I love them so!

  2. Thanks! I've noticed just about all of Nicholas Sparks books take place in NC and i think that's why i'm so drawn to them... OBX is probably one of my favorite places in the world lol

  3. I have all the Nicholas Sparks books you want to read. He is my favorite as well. Glad you are liking the House of Night, I would feel bad if you didn't like them and I recommended them. I still have to order the 8th book from Amazon. I need to start reading again, I go through patches were I will do nothing but read, then I stop. I have all the true blood series, trying to get into those. I watch the show, so what I've been reading is stuff I already know.

  4. I just ordered 5-8 from barnes and noble.. i got 3 of them in hardback and it only came to like $40 and I got free shipping.. not bad at all for hardback books! When I go home I'm going to hit up b&n heavily lol.. our book selection here stinks and i'm weird and don't like to get library books because i like that fresh, new book feeling lol

  5. Hey! I saw your blog listed on Doris' blog that I follow. Thought I'd leave a comment on a few books I've read if that's alright.

    I'm just now reading the Sookie Stackhouse series. I also just got Kelly Cutrone's book "If You Have To Cry Go Outside and Other Things Your Mother Never Told You." She's pretty blunt in it.

    I just picked up reading books since we got here, not much else to do, haha, so my list of book reading is short. :) I've also read the Harry Potter series and Twilight series.

  6. I loved HP and the Twilight Series. I finished the whole Twilight series in about a week. I read the HP books years ago when they first came out.. well 1-4 anyways... and then when the 7th final book came out I read 5,6 and 7. I think might go back and reread the series since it's been so long since I read 1-4
