Books I've read -- for me!

My blogging friend, Tammy at Forever in First, has shared some book titles she's read lately - so I thought I would too.  

I have to start by saying two things -

First, I love, love, love my Kindle. For some reason, it is so much more fun to read at night with just the light of the Kindle, instead of the lamp by my bed holding a "real" book. What's up with that?

Second, I have a Kindle paperwhite - which basically means no color. I also have the Kindle app on my iPad, and the book covers are so much more appealing there. Why is that? I also have a harder time remembering what I'm reading, because the Kindle just opens to the page I'm on; whereas every time you pick up a book, you see the cover. 

I read some Christmas books over the break:

Both of which were OK. 

This was a little more PG than I had remembered her books being, but I enjoyed it. 

This is not my usual genre - it's definitely a fantasy. I wasn't too sure about parts of it; but it was also a page turner for me - I couldn't wait to see what was next. Thanks, Tammy, for the recommendation. 

Apparently this is an author I really like. I enjoyed this story of a little girl bringing the residents of an apartment building together. 

Can't remember any others I read - but I felt like I got through quite a few over the break. 

Next up, a teacher's book:

College Girl has another week at home, so I probably won't get to it until after that. Anyone interested in doing an informal book study on this? I'll probably blog about it any way - it keeps me motivated!

Happy Sunday - I hope you are spending it relaxing!!


  1. I haven't brought myself to invest in a Kindle yet-can't give up my actual books yet! :) Thank you for sharing your reads. Love to see what other people are reading! :)

    Not Just Child's Play

  2. I do not have a Kindle, but am thinking--should I invest in one? What are your thoughts? Paperwhite, Fire?
    Have a good week!

  3. Garden Spells looks interesting. I love fantasy novels.
    I read many, not all, books on my iPad and realLy enjoy it but I wouldn't give up my "real" books:)

  4. Oh I'm glad you enjoyed Garden Spells. All her books are page turners. (I understand the questionable parts for sure.)
