Reading list!

After moving in with the bf I've started reading a lot because he has his video games that he plays for hours on end. I would play with him but... I can't seem to get the hang of moving these peeps around. They tend to get stuck on corners walls or ladders. Here is my list of books I have read in 2009. I'm not going to tell you about the books just how I enjoyed them. You should read them for yourself and if you have.... add some suggestions for next reading list additions.

1. The Last Lecture by: Randy Pauch

I'm pretty sure I wrote about this before. It was an amazing book. I get way too involved in books and this one was an emotional roller coaster. I read his childhood memories like they were my own, but I also read doctors advice like it was meant for me.

2. A Version of the Truth by: Jennifer Kaufman

This book sums up my feelings right now. No job, broke, no education, and no valuable experience (except for waiting tables for a good third of my life (ok not quite that much but almost)).

3., 4., 5., 6. The Twilight Series by: Stephanie Meyer

Yeah, I didn't want to read these because of the tween-teen obsession, I honestly figured they'd be dumb. Surprisingly, or not I couldn't put them down. I was obsessed and I told my bf about the books like I was on a first name basis with all of them (he was obsessed too always wanting to know what was going on, I couldn't talk him into reading them himself....)

7. Fearless Fourteen by: Janet Evanovich

I started reading this series my senior year of high school. I had two study halls and access to the "adult" section of the library. I knocked out the first eight or more pretty quickly. After I got busy with college I forgot how much I actually liked reading books and forgot about the series usually I'd catch up during the summer, and 15 is coming out soon. I'm excited you can bet that one will be #1 in my book swim book pool. I think I secretly wish I were Stephanie Plum. This was my first book rented from book swim and I must say I am pleased!

8. Waiter's Rant by: Steve Dublanica

I've just started this so I'll update this later it seems good though!

the Last Lecture is totally on my "Next to Buy" list.

How I love having my Barnes and Noble discount card.

A really funny/good book you might like (I LOVED) is Time Off For Good Behavior by Lani Diane Rick
