The Classy Bookshelf

Well.... I last posted a "Books" post in January.  I've read.... approximately 35 books since then.  I thought that wedding-planning would put a SERIOUS dent in my reading time.... but apparently not.

I think that, as the wedding gets closer (101 days as of today!), I will probably read less and less... but who knows!

Soo, how do I catch up?  Excellent question.

Today, I think I'll just recap January's reads and catch up from there.  If you really want to know what I'm reading.... Goodreads, dude

I read 16 books in January.

  1. Hokus Pokus by Fern Michaels
  2. Hide and Seek by Fern Michaels 
  3. Collateral Damage by Fern Michaels
  4. Fast Track by Fern Michaels
  5. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
  6. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
  7. The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
  8. The Death Cure by James Dashner
  9. The Giver by Lois Lowry
  10. The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
  11. The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau
  12. The People of Sparks by Jeanne DuPrau
  13. The Prophet of Yonwood by Jeanne DuPrau
  14. The Diamond of Darkhold by Jeanne DuPrau
  15. Graceling by Kristin Cashore
  16. Fire by Kristin Cashore
If you can't tell, I was having a "series" moment.  I really enjoy books that have a series, mostly because I can plow through a book in a couple of days and am always left wanting for more.

Books 1-4 (on today's list) are part of the Sisterhood Series by Fern Michaels... books 1-6 of this series kept me up all night reading.  The books above are books 7-8-9 of the series... and let's just say they probably were best left un-read.  And that is something I rarely say.

I was able to check-out the following series all-at-once from the local library (on my kindle!)- The City of Ember series by Jeanne DuPrau. I devoured this one, and I'm sure there's probably a movie deal already coming from it.  Definitely read this one.  

I actually haven't read the final book in the Graceling series by Kristin Cashore, but the first two books were excellent and I expect nothing less from the third.

Last but not least, I went through a series that - for me - is slightly different.  Because it was written from the male perspective.  Am I the only one who really only loves books when they're from a girl's perspective?   Am I genetically defective?

Nobody knows.  But The Maze Runner series by James Dashner is not new by any stretch of the imagination - but it was new to me, and I loved it. 

I'm a little bummed that I haven't picked up any good series books lately... but I've been adding to my bookshelf, and I'll definitely be sharing more soon.

Read anything good lately?

Oh my! I thought that I read a lot. One of my recent posts was much like this one; although I haven't read nearly as much as you. Good for you finding time! I find that reading keeps my mind sharp & is actually an escape at times. I'll have to note some of the titles you've mentioned. I do like Fern Michaels.

I haven't read any of those books! I am a big series fan too...except I always start reading the first one, then realize the second one isn't coming out for a while! I need to stop doing that.
