Soooooo, I have been on a total role with reading lately and going through books like crazy. I think it partly has to do with the fact that I have no desire to watch March Madness, but truly, I'm just a book junkie. I picked up Go Ask Alice, Love Walked In, Promise Not to Tell, and The Girl on the Train at Goodwill for a combined total of $3. I actually went on the hunt for Baby Proof which I saw there a few weeks back, but of course it was gone. I've already read Go Ask Alice and The Girl on the Train, but they were so good I want to re-read them.
I've mentioned our Little Free Library before, but to celebrate Nebraska's 150th anniversary our University is putting the One Book One Nebraska book in all the Little Free Libraries around town. Black Elk Speaks is supposed to be super good, I can't wait to start it!
Now for books I've finished: I read Something Borrowed in less than a day. It was a quick read, but I really liked it. The protagonist, Darcy, is kind of the worst at first, but it ends up being a really good story about how you can transform your life. I can't wait for the next on in the series, Baby Proof.
I also read The Cellar because a student loved it and told me I should read it. It was ok, but not my favorite. I had a hard time buying into the story line, but I can totally see why my 7th grader loved it.
I also read The Nest, which is our March book club book. I really liked it! Heads up, there are some parts that are pretty racy, but if you can get past that it's a pretty great story about how money can get the best of people.
I also finished Burial Rites, also super good. It is based a true story, which makes it even better, in my opinion. It takes place in the 1800 in Iceland and is about a murder by three people of a land owner, but there's more to the story...
What have you read lately that was good?
