Book Worm

Standard

Forgive my absence. I started reading a new-t0-me series of books on Tuesday night and just came up for air tonight.

I jumped on The Hunger Games bandwagon and am so so glad I did. Yes, I realize these books are classified as Young Adult- but damn, they are *good*.

Book 1, The Hunger Games, sucked me right in. I chose to skip Spin class this morning in order to do an hour on the elliptical instead so I could read more of Book 2, Chasing Fire, in peace.  And I may or may not have spent the vast majority of my work day today finishing Book 2 and Book 3, Mockingjay. It’s been a long, long time since a book has sucked me in like that and it was wonderful! My only regret is that I finished them so fast- I wish I had savored them more.

The Hubs banned me from buying more books, so I’ve joined the library and have been having a blast re-reading old favorites and finding new authors to love. Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series remains my all time favorite series. I revisit Jamie, Claire, Bree & Rodger at least once a year- it’s almost like catching up with old friends now. While the Bean’s middle name, Claire, is technically after my great-grandmother, Claire Randall was a huge influence on the choice as well. 😉

I’ve got three new books to pick from now- all by authors I haven’t read before. Hoping there is another winner in this pile!

About Heather

I adore my family, writing, books, cats, lazy mornings in bed, and chocolate. I'll never say no to breakfast for dinner, long talks with friends and lazy summer days at the pool with family. I've somehow morphed into a crazy sports mom, a skier and someone who lifts weights. My life is often crazy, always awesome and one I'm so happy to be living!

  1. The Outlander series is my all time favorite too. I often will pick up one of the series and just immerse myself in it for a few hours from some random point. Since you obviously have great taste in books I think I’m going to dive into The Hunger Games next week.

    • The Hunger Games and Outlander really couldn’t be more different, but I don’t think you’ll be disappointed! Please let me know what you think and don’t be shy about passing along books recs- I’m always looking for something good to read!
