READ IT. Seriously.

Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
Just finished An Echo in the Bone, the last installment in the Diana Gabaldon Outlander series. Enjoyed it as always, but it had been too long since I read A Breath of Snow and Ashes, and I had forgotten a lot.

I like them so much, I need to just re-read everything. I haven't read any of them since they were each released, and it's been a long time since the start.

I'm reading Assassin's Apprentice... it is an incredibly good fantasy book that doesn't feel like a cheesy fantasy book. (If that makes any sense)
i have to read a book called "Things Fall Apart" by Chinua Achebe for my History of Africa class, and the books is very good and well-written. I love it!!

Its very very good. I dont want to go into it any more and spoil to much!

I just finished The Paris Wife. It's a novel about Hadley Hemingway, Ernest's first wife. I liked it very much.

Im re-reading Cassandra Clare's to refresh my memory for the new book thats just come out.

My original thoughts on these stand. They read like fanfiction. (And I said that to friends long before I even knew she originally started out that way). They needed to be tightened up a lot before ever hitting the stores.

Is anyone else surprised just how many books she has had out in so short a time? Its like the publishers are just rushing her books out (she does have a large following), when in reality a lot more time should have been spent on them.
Crooked Letter Crooked Letter... it's very good.

Just think I used to worry 'bout things like that,
Used to worry 'bout rich and skinny, 'til I wound up poor and fat,
Nowadays I kind of worry where my mind's been at,
Just think I used to worry 'bout things like that. (Delbert McClinton - I Used to Worry from Never Been Rocked Enough)

I recently read the "The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood" and the prequel "Little Alters Everywhere" by Rebecca Wells. There was also a movie made, starring Sandra Bullock (The book's way better!). It was so good! My only complaint was that it wasn't longer.

The language was rich and discriptive, it made me feel as though I was there. However it was a little "mature" there was some things that could be upsetting to some people.

The novel combined friendship, laughter, family and dark secrets. I highly recomend it to anyone looking for a good read!
Happy Reading!

Also I just found out the sixth and final part of the Earth's Children series is out!! These have been some of my favorite books since I was in my early teens. The new book is called "The Land of Painted Caves", and I can't wait to get it. Screw getting it in E-book format.. I want the hardcover.

A really great book to shake up some of that quiet wanderlust we all have and to realize all your reasons for being happy (without an ounce of cheesiness) is Eric Weiner's "The Geography of Bliss". He goes around finding out what the secret to happiness is. Great writing style, enjoyable humor, very entertaining summer read. You'll go on vacation in your living room. Travel books can do that!
Lauren Oliver is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. Her works is pure poetry. Breathtaking.

I have just finished her newest novel Delirium and I simply cannot wait for the sequel or any future release from her.
Amanda Hocking's series, both. She's an independent author, you can find her books on Amazon.

I just heard about the TV show, Legend of the Seeker a little while ago and I saw at the end that it was based on these books, the first one is Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind. Apparently they've been NYTimes bestsellers for over 15 years but I've never heard of the series before! They are science fiction, which I only just started to read and enjoy, but this first one is SO good!
Things have been a bit quiet here lately.

Books I've read the last week or so and enjoyed:

Divergent by Veronica Roth
Gone by Michael Grant
The Recruit by Robert Muchamore
The Iron Thorn by Caitlin Kittredge
I'm reading Wolf Hall again
