Confession: For many years, I hated reading and I hated books.
My favorite book used to be Fahrenheit 451...
and only because the story is pretty much about burning books.
In 2008 (if my memory is correct) my sister spent our entire family vacation to Key West with a book in her face. She was reading a stupid book about vampires. I laughed at her, my lil crazy bookworm vampire loving sister.
And then... she lent me a book to read... I was scared. It was over 100 pages long. But, per her recommendation, I decided to give it a try...
I spent hours locked in my condo, not going out to my usual bars for some drinks, and staying up way past my bedtime reading.... Twilight. I was hooked. Amazed by Stephenie Meyer. In love... with Edward Cullen. I may or may not have driven 2 hours back to my hometown just to get the next book to read. I had to have it.
I've been a bookworm ever since. Reading is cool.
My bookworm status has rocketed.
Santa brought me a Kindle for Christmas!
I LOVE IT.
I LOVE IT.
Since then, I've spent every night like this:
I've posted a new widget on the side of my blog of all my favorite books, for all my bookworm friends.
Currently reading The Shack, Can You Keep A Secret?, and Mockingjay.
I am always looking for new books...
So, what are your favorite reads of this past year?
