book nerd

I gave up reading for a while.  Not intentionally, by any means.  It just kind of fell out of my daily routine.  It may have something to do with the amount of Netflix I was watching....Gossip Girl...but tha'ts over and I'm at it again.

I am currently absorbed in an awesome book: "And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini.  Honestly, I didn't think I would really like it.  I'm definitely a fan of romance and drama and I had an inkling that this wasn't either of those things.  But a good friend of mine recommended I borrow her copy and read it.  So I did.  And I love it!! It's thought-provoking and interesting and I just really, really  like it.  (How's that for a review?)

While I was in Hawaii last month (more on that trip later...when I'm feeling ambitious) I read Wild by Cheryl Strayed.  Again, I didn't think I would like it but had heard wonderful things so I gave it a shot.  I guess you could say I've been stepping out of my comfort zone, broadening my horizons, if you will. ;) And I loved it!  Made me want to be more adventurous and do things I never thought I could do.  I highly recommend it.  And they're coming out with a movie about it, starring Reese Witherspoon!  That alone should make you read it. :)
And I read the Divergent series.  And to be honest, I didn't love them.  I really enjoyed the first one so I decided to read the next two and I was just disappointed.  They were kind of boring and dull.  I was confused because I had heard of a lot of people liking them but they just didn't do it for me.  Maybe I've had a little too much of the dystopian novels lately, but they just weren't all that. 
On that note, happy reading! Let me know if you've read any good books lately!
