Weekend Reads

Thursday, August 18, 2016


There's few things I love more than a good book. Seriously, I love reading so much that I almost can't do it. 

Let me explain. 

I love, love, love a thriller. Give me a mystery, a murder, a kidnapping or a scandal and I'm a happy girl. I'm not partial, I love a comedy, love stories are good but not my fave. I like something juicy, something that keeps me on edge, leaves me guessing.
I get hooked, y'all. So hooked that I cannot put it down. It's been this way since I was a little girl. I remember my mom taking me to Barnes and Noble the morning a new Lemony Snicket book was released. Who remembers Series of Unfortunate Events? Yea, the best series ever. I would go to my grandmother's house and spend the entire day reading. I wouldn't stop, couldn't stop until I reached the end. Later, I moved on to Judy Blume. The gateway to every girls' teenage years. 


I think I love books because you get to escape to a new world. You become a new character living a new life. How neat is that? In their head you can feel their emotions and live their thoughts. I think the reason I cannot put one down once I start is due to the fact I'm extremely impatient curious. I like to know it all. 

What kind of book is your favorite? Once the weather starts to cool down, I find myself spending more and more time inside. Nothing is more relaxing than curling up in my favorite chair with a great candle burning and a so-good-you-can't-stop book. Maybe throw in a glass of wine and welcome to heaven. 

I've rounded up a few of my favorite books I've read recently + a few that I'm hoping to enjoy soon. I would love to hear if you have any I should add to my list!
