Total Bookworm.

So, I love reading. Really love it. There are a couple people in my office that bring in bags of books when they are done with them and I enjoy “shopping” through them. Last time, I came up with a couple gems. The one I just finished was called “The Winner” by David Baldacci. It was about some weird guy that fixed the lottery and would make an offer to some poor person to make sure that they won. It focuses on one woman in particular and things get pretty out of hand and crazy – her horrible boyfriend gets killed in a drug deal gone wrong, she is the main suspect, new identities, breaking the rules set forth by the man that fixed it all up, blackmail, intrigue... It was a pretty dang good little thriller. Definitely enjoyable and there were parts were I couldn’t put it down. All in all a decent, fun read.

I am about to start “Love the One You’re With” by Emily Giffin. I’ve read her first three books “Something Borrowed,” “Something Blue,” and “Baby Proof.” They were all pretty cute reads, so I am definitely looking forward to reading it. I’ve been waiting very patiently for it to be released in paper back. The only books I tend to buy in hard cover are ones where I absolutely cannot wait the year or so it usually takes for them to switch over. (All my Harry Potters and Twilight Books are hard cover.) Another one that I can’t wait to read is “Certain Girls” by Jennifer Weiner. It’s a sequel to her book “Good In Bed,” which got me a lot of funny comments when people in my office would see it sitting on my desk (I like to read at lunch). Haha It was a good story and I am excited to see what has happened with the characters since the first one left off.

I had someone recommend the series of books that the HBO Series “True Blood” is based on to me, but I haven’t had a chance to go to the bookstore (and I weep at that fact, I normally go to the bookstore at least a couple times a month) in a while, so I haven’t picked them up yet. I also need to check on some of my other favorites to see if the newest have made the cross-over from hard to paper… I know that Christopher Moore has a new one and I love his books. Laurell K. Hamilton and Mary Janice Davidson are always good for entertaining, girly reads.

And then my husband has the next two in a series that we are reading by Thomas Morrow, but I am letting him read them first… He’s such a slow reader though…. That’s why I keep buying more to keep myself busy in between. And he loaded the sequel to “Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse” by Robert Rankin to a friend, so I am still waiting to read that…

My list of books to read is pretty much never-ending… If only there were more hours in the day…
