I'm currently on the third book and am still on the fence about how I feel about the series. Honestly? I really hated the first book, I guess it had no story line to keep me hooked. The second book was A MILLION times better and I can't wait to see where the story goes but I really don't get the huge fan following Christian has. I got behind a vehicle yesterday who had personalized plates that said "MY FIFTY" and had a "Laters, baby" bumper sticker. Yes, he's an interesting character but beyond that, I'm not in love. Will I be once I finish the third book? Have you read them?
While I'm on the... um... hot and heavy side of things, I'm also on the fourth book of the Sookie Stackhouse series, Dead to the World.
If you're a True Blood fan, you're seriously missing out if you haven't read the books. They are similar to the show but there are about a million small details that are different or missing. It's an addictive series and I know I can always pick up my Kindle for a good read when I've got a Charlaine Harris book on it!
Flipping genres a little bit, I've also got the entire Shopaholic series and finished them all within a week or two last fall.
The Shopaholic novels were all an easy read but had extremely similar story lines. Truthfully? Rebecca Bloomwood got a tad annoying to me in the last couple of books but I gave the books the benefit of the doubt and kept reading. She would get herself in crazy situations and by the end of the series, I was ready to be done with them. I didn't love the books but didn't hate them either.
Another series I just had to read because you kids told me to were the novels by Lauren Conrad.
My sweet friend Ashley actually lent me L.A. Candy last year (um, I'm a bad friend, did I give it back?!) and I got completely hooked on the characters and read all three books back to back. The story is similar to what we think happened on the MTV show the Hills but the people are just different enough so you can't figure out which character would be who in real life. I kind of have a girl crush on LC so it was a no brainer that I would like her books.
So we've covered sex crazy, vamps and demons, nutso shopaholics and teen fiction. You didn't actually think I could finish a post without covering something baby related did you? Have no fear, there's a baby led weaning book on my Kindle too.
I've been curious about baby led weaning so I downloaded this book today thanks to a recommendation from my new mom friend, Lucy. (Fun fact? We met through my in-the-computer-turned-real-life BFF Maria. Blogging friends for the win. Seriously.)
As I said, I just started reading it but I'm already intrigued. Like most moms, I assumed the next step in feeding my baby would be purees but this book sheds a new light on letting your baby tell you when he/she is ready for real food. So far, it's interesting and right now, I'm not ruling out anything but really anxious to learn more about the baby-led process!
So, there you have it, what I've been reading lately. On my "to-read" list? A few of Karen Kingsbury's books have struck my curiousity, since a few of you raved about her too. Also, I would really like to read Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter before I see the movie.
Told ya, I'm all over the place! What have you been reading?
