On my bookshelf


I haven’t been reading as much as I would like to here lately, so my “To Read” list is rapidly growing. I thought I would share with you all the books that I would like to read this year. I only read 12 books last year and all of that reading was in spurts. Such as reading the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy in like a week and reading 4 books while I was on vacation in November. My favorites were (besides the Fifty Shades because yes, I enjoyed them) were the first two books of the Crossfire series – Bared to You and Reflected in You. They are similar to Fifty Shades but even better in my opinion. The main female character in that series would be a perfect match for the main male character in Fifty Shades actually. I also really liked the first two books in the Delirium series, Delirium and Pandemonium (Delirium). They are a young adult series, quick reads, and pretty intriguing story where the government “cures” people from feeling love. The third book in the series comes out in March and is on my “bookshelf” of course!

In no particular order… my TO READ list consists of:

Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders – Brandi Glanville / She is famous for losing her husband to Leann Rimes and being one of the catty moms on the Real Housewives and I love her. Can’t wait to read this one for some good trashy gossip. {Biography}

Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn / I’m on a list of about 100 hundred other people waiting for this book at my library. I’ll probably break down and purchase it for my iPad. Seems like this one is on everyone’s Must Read list.

The Book Thief – Markus Zusak / This book has been popping up in people’s favorites list for years. Someday I will get around to seeing what the hype is all about.

Cutting for Stone – Abraham Verghese / Another favorite that I added just because I don’t want to feel left out.

Entwined with You (A Crossfire Novel) – Sylvia Day / Book 3 of the Crossfire Series and it’s not going to be out until June now. First it was going to be March and then May and now June. WOW, it better be good!

Requiem – Lauren Oliver / Book 3 of the Delirium Series – out on March 5th. Can’t wait! I may just buy this one since I have the first two books in my possession and sell them off to someone. Let me know if you are interested.

Divergent & Insurgent – Veronica Roth / I bought the first two books of this series but haven’t gotten around to reading them yet. It’s another young adult series about a dystopian world.

The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern / I’ve had this one on my to read list forever. I’ve come real close to buying it a few times, but something else has always looked better.

The Language of Flowers – Vanessa Diffenbaugh / Another pretty popular book that I have been meaning to read for awhile now.

So what is on your To Read list for this year? Anything that I should add to my list?

    Can’t wait to read Entwined with you. Lately I have been hunting for Sylvia Day books. She has a lot out there and I even found one in the library.

      I did she has a lot of other books out there. Let me know if you read any good ones! I feel like I want to reread the first two books before I read Entwined with you in June. They were so good!
