I am VERY excited because I have new BOOKS to read!!! I’ve been trying to save money lately, so I’ve been re-reading old books (god knows I have enough to choose from), but I have been dying for some new reading material.
Well, thanks to my BFF and her belated graduation gift to me, I was able to download EIGHT new books on my Kindle today! I can not WAIT to dive in!
And now….THE LIST!
My friend, Niki recommnended the book Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex. I love a good non fiction read that is interesting and the author has really good reviews on all of her books, so this should be a good one.
Up next is one of my favorite authors, Meg Cabbot. I’ve read a lot of her stuff and have heard about the “Babble” series and finally decided to try it out since it seems like some light, fun reading.
I picked The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo because it’s been near the top of the New York Times Bestseller List for quite some time, and I hear they’re making a movie, so it must be good. It’s a jump from the genre I usually read, but hopefully it’s as good as I’ve heard.
I’m really excited to read The Business of Happiness. I’ve grown to love Ted Leonsis by proxy of being a Capitals fan. I’m an avid reader of his blog (www.TedsTake.com) and find his thought process fascinating. I think this book will not only be entertaining, but will also give good advice from such a successful person in not only business, but life as well.
Speaking of Ted Leonsis, he recommended the book, The Wave on his blog recently and after reading his review, I knew I had to have it. As someone who fears the ocean and it’s power, I’m hoping that this book will give me some understanding as to how things happen in the sea as well as provide some interesting stories. I hope Ted keeps suggesting books because what’s he has suggested so far all seems really great.
A few years back, I read Tucker Max’s book, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell and nearly peed my pants with laughter. I think the guy is the biggest toolbag on the planet, but his stories are to-die-for hilarious. I can’t wait to read Assholes Finish First just for pure entertainment.
Three words: I LOVE HER. I read both of Chelsea Handler’s books when we took a cruise a few years back and I’ve been hoping she would write another book because she’s HILARIOUS. I plan on starting this book first thing Saturday morning when we hit the beach.
I loved The Devil Wears Prada and Everyone Worth Knowing, so it’s no surprise that I want to read Lauren Weisberger’s new book, Last Night at the Chateau Marmont.
Another fun read is anything by Tori Spelling. I was actually surprised by how much I enjoyed her first two books and I’m looking forward to her new one, Unchartered Territori.
Yay for new books!! These oughta last me a few months!
