We've Packed the Books, but We Keep Buying More...

This is something I haven't delved into much here. I very rarely write about books I read (though you can find my 2012 Reading List here), what products I use/like/hate/feel indifferent about. I feel like this is weird. I have lots of opinions. In real life, I share them all the time, so why not on my blog? Not sure. Just haven't...yet. :)

I figured I'd start with some mini-book reviews. I've actually been doing a good bit of reading lately which makes me very happy. :) Since this is the extent to which I've written about the books I've been reading, I'm just going to highlight a few of my favorites. :)

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
Genre: biography, science
I loved this book. It was a tough/serious read and there was some pretty technical language. There were a times where it read a little like a textbook but the story is so amazing that it really doesn't matter. If you are human you need to read this book. Just sayin'.

The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
Genre: young adult fiction, adventure, science fiction
OMG. I loved all of them. And I hate when books are fads and people only read them because they're turning into movies. But for these, I don't care. I don't even care that they're techically YA. I found each one to be exciting and engaging and omgicantgetenough. And, no. I don't have a favorite. I guess I'll have to re-read them to decide. ;)

The Witness by Nora Roberts
Genre: romance
I love romance novels. If that's not ok,...well you don't have to read them. :) This was a single title that came out this year that my sister gave me for my birthday. I finished it in about 2 days. It was kind of a mystery/adventure/awesome. It's hard for me to find a Nora Roberts book I don't like but this one quickly became one of my favorites.

Right now I'm reading two books at once, which I've never done before except when I get bored with one and put it down, usually never to pick it up again. So that doesn't really count. But this time I went to Half Price Books, bought three books and was just so excited I couldn't read just one. But now it takes me twice as long to get to sleep because I have two books to read. ;) I guess I'd better go get started....
