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.

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?
