Tell Me A Story

I love books. Real, actual, physical books. Whose pages hold stories within stories, tales of favorite spots and places. I love the smell, the weight, the feel of them in my hand. I am a sucker for a good story, no matter the genre. I’m insanely picky about the state of my books and while I may desperately want you to read the book I just fell in love with, there’s not a chance in hell I’m going to loan you my book. Bygones.

I have a bit of a problem with books. If the story sounds good? I’m buying it. I buy faster than I have time to read. Which leads to half of my bookshelves being filled with books I’ve never read. Books I full intend on reading. But despite having well over a hundred books waiting to be cracked none of them are calling to me right now.

So, tell me Internets, what should I read next?*

 

*If you tell me Fifty Shades of Terribly Written Porn we can no longer be friends.

  1. Have you ever read any of Jodi Picoult’s books? They enthrall me every time! I also love Karen Kingsbury and Nicholas Sparks. I am the same way – a million books I want to read, and I get a new one every chance I get! haha! πŸ™‚ Good luck!

    I am preparing to follow Chrsyta as she is about to 10th person I have seen recommend A Discovery of Witches. I listened to ‘Room’ on CD – It was interesting. A favorite I always fall back to when people ask for a recommendation is Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts. LOVE it!!

    I don’t read Jodi Picoult anymore – I tried and like, The Lovely Bones, once I had a child I react to stories in such a different, more intense way that it gives me panic attacks and nightmares.

    Oh, I have arrived by way of Moosh – I live on the westside and I love our town.
    My sister and I are going to see Breaking Dawn Pt 2 first thing Friday morning – we can’t go at midnight this year *sob*

    We may try and squeeze in Pitch Perfect before we have to meet the school bus too!!
