Beauty of a Bookworm

About a year ago I was reading 1-2 books a week. I was unknowingly turning one of our spare bedrooms into a mini-library because I hated to get rid of books when I finished reading them. When I had my surgery I realized that I hadn't had much time to read for pleasure in the few months prior and I kind of missed it. I decided to trim down my collection so I could make room for some new additions. Michael thought I was crazy because I have an Ipad and he thinks I should be reading on that. I guess I am old school because I like the way an actual book feels in my hands, how it feels to turn the pages. Honestly though, I think my biggest draw to reading a physical copy of the book is the chance it gives me to get "lost" in a bookstore ...

Anyway, here are some of my favorite authors (and books) that I either discovered for the first time, or rediscovered, in the last month and a half.

 Jane Porter is probably one of my best finds. Her books are an easy read, but I can't ever seem to put them down once I start them!

 Karen Kingsbury is a wonderful Christian fiction author. She has a bunch of mini-series, and this is just one of them. I can't wait to finish this series and start another!

 Emily Griffin is such a fun author to read. I've read all of her books (I'm missing a few in the picture) and am rereading them because I love them so much.

If you love period novels, you will love Elizabeth Berg. This book was so well written that I actually had withdraws from it when I stopped reading it. So good!

Have you read any of these books? If so, what did you think of them? Do you have any recommendations for books that you think I should read? I am always open to suggestions!

  1. I can't read a book on a nook or kindle. There is just something about being able to curl up on the couch in sweats with a good book in your hand!
