I Need A Good Read!

I'm in need of some new reads!
Spring break starts next weekend and I'm in desperate need of some good books since I'll actually have time to read! So I need some recommendations!

I've been thinking about reading Water for Elephants,
have any of y'all read it? Recommend it?

Anyways.. what are some of y'alls suggestions for good reads?
 I'm hoping to hit the bookstore this weekend in preparation!

and lastly, thanks so much for all of your wonderful suggestions about the lipstick post from earlier! I think I'm going to take the plunge and hit up the make-up counter ASAP, but probably still use a gloss OVER the lipstick. I'm not ready to be SUPER bold yet. ;) But I'll keep you posted!

Love y'all!

i am torn on water for elephants because i just saw a preview for the movie! its got r-pats and reece witherspoon! it looks sooo good but i know if i read the book, i won't like the movie!
but i recommend The Guernsey Literary and Potatoe Peel Pie Society its taken me forever to get through ONLY because i've been so busy! but its super witty and heartwarming!
or you could just read the novel i wrote you right now! sorry! =D

I heard Water for Elephants is a great book! I am thinking about reading it myself! I just read The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards and that was really good and then I can't help but promote anything written by Jodi Picoult, I just think she's amazing! Let's us know what you decide to read- I am always looking for new books myself!!

Nicholas Sparks has a great new book called Safe Haven. I just love his books! Also...I HIGHLY recommend Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. A friend of mine insisted that I read it and I'm so glad I did...I could not put it down. I had it read in a few days! I'm getting ready to start Water for Elephants...I've heard great things about it :) Enjoy your reading!

1.The Guernsey Literary and Potatoe Peel Pie Society

2. The Hunger Games (I've only read the first one so far but it was really good and a very quick read)

3. The Last Song (good spring summer read and much better than the movie)

4. The Happiness Project

5. The Help I haven't read it yet but everyone says it's really good. I have it on hold at the library

I recommended a book to my mom called Blue Latitudes and she absolutely loved it! It's about Captain Cook and his adventures in the South Pacific. If you like historical stuff (with a hint of tropics) thats perfect. Enjoy your spring break! I'm on mine too :)

Megan said...

Anything by Jodi Picoult. My three favorite books:
1) Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers
2) Wicked
3) The Other Boleyn Girl

Michelle said...

Ever read any Emily Giffin books? Something Borrowed and Something Blue are absolute faves, plus Something Borrowed is also going to be a movie soon! I'm loving your blog, new follower here :)
Have a great weekend!!

I tried to read Water for Elephants but it was a disaster! Everyone said it was really good, and I'm sure they are right, I just couldn't deal with the conditions the people and animals live in.
