What I'm Reading - October

The fall to me is the best time to read. Curled up on the couch with a blanket, a cup of coffee/or tea and a good book. I lose many of my days off to this pastime. I just purchased 3 new books to read this month, but as I add more, I'll be sending you a new link back here.

I decided to give this month a theme, I'm going to read books by humorous people. I want to laugh, smile and enjoy a nice light read. These are the top three books I'll be reading this month!

Furiously Happy - Jenny Lawson

Modern Romance - Aziz Ansari (I've been meaning to read this for a few months, but kept holding off until I had an arsenal of other funny books to follow up with! Now is the time!)

What books are you reading right now? What should I check out? I keep a list of all recommendations so I can get to them too!

What I'm Reading - September

August was a brutal month for me - I have virtually no time to read! I've compiled quite a collection of books to read and decided to share a few with you! 

As always, they're loaded on my Amazon Kindle, because it's the perfect companion for travel. As much as I love the smell of a book, the practicality of the Amazon Kindle was just too great to pass up on. 

Read Until it Hurts!

I'm one of those people that gets VERY invested in the books I read. I start reading and think to myself "just a half hour today" which turns into 2 hours. I have a really hard time putting books down!

Recently, my old Kindle died and I had been humming and hawing about getting a new one for a few weeks before I finally bit the bullet. Amazon had a Valentine promo and I purchased a wi-fi only Kindle PaperWhite

Compared to my (7 year old) previous kindle this one is a DREAM! My old one had a full keyboard built into the unit and was a little slower response when typing. This one is touch screen and is very fast! It even has a built-in backlight that you can adjust to suit the room lighting! This is a godsend! I tend to read before bed, and I hate keeping Kevin up, so having this allows me to read while he snores loudly in my ear! 

It also links to GoodReads so you can create an account and rate all the books you read so others can see if they're worth reading! Love that! 

Right now I'm reading a suspense/thriller and being able to bring my book everywhere (in my small purse) is awesome!

I love paperback books, don't get me wrong, but I travel a lot and its not practical to carry a paperback with me on most of my journeys. 

What are you reading right now? I'm always interested in trying new genres & authors! Also, would you be interested in reviews of some books I've read recently? Let me know below or leave a comment on my Facebook page!
