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!

  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!
