Fun and Easy reads



Now that I have more time on my hand, I find myself reading again. I used to love books (when I was in high school). My ultimate favourites are The Time Traveler's Wife and Gone with the Wind. I shed a whole lotta tears while reading those, no matter how many times I'm rereading them... I guess I can relate a little bit. I thought I would read more in university since I was living alone, but nope, that didn't happen.. I just gave up on books. Now that university is finally out of the way, somehow I am starting the books that I couldn't finish before. And I find myself wanting to read books that are more light hearted.

I just finished rereading Can You Keep a Secret? and Remember Me? Now I'm reading Christopher Moore's Island of the Sequined Love Nun. I bought it such a long time ago, and never finished it. I'm about half done now, it's actually really funny. And yesterday, I stopped by Indigo, and bought myself The Debutante Divorcee by Plum Sykes just because it's pink and was on sale for $4.99! It seems like it's similar to the Sophie Kinsella books, but more gossip girl like. I'll see how that one goes.

What are your favourite books? Needing some recommendations! :D

I love LOVE LOVE books. They are my life :) I've read Sophie Kinsella's books since they were gifts. I really liked "The Glass Castle" by Jeanette Walls. It's a very touching memoir about growing up and family :) I cried reading it. I recently finished "How Starbucks Saved my Life" which was very good :) I guess it depends what kind of style you like... :)
