Here are some great books that I read recently- because I have not had school and actually am able to read FUN books. I have to tell you that I love reading. Seriously. When I was younger I would read ALL THE TIME! I would read books in a day, not putting them down until I was finished! I read long books during elementary school. Some weeks I read 4-5 books in a week! A real dork right here.. ! I still read books quickly..and love to read whenever I have a chance! Jason has also slowly become a book worm as time has gone on. We have a bookshelf filled with books for school-- for both of us, as well as books for pleasure.
Water For Elephants
I am sure most of you have heard of this book.
It is amazing. A great story, with many diverse characters that make you want to keep reading without stopping. I love the story between the two characters, and the character view of the older man looking back onto his life in the circus. It is heart wrenching at times to see the struggle of the old man in his current life.. Also a great love story between an animal and person.. Loved this book
I have not seen the movie, so I cannot compare the two- and am usually disappointed by books made into movies, but I do plan on seeing it..
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
The author Jonathon Safron Foer wrote Everything is Illuminated.
This is a great book. I always love books revolving around kids, especially kids with disabilities.
This book is about a boy who recently had his father die in the September 11th attacks.
He has the strong belief that a key of his father will open some lock and goes around searching NYC for everyone with the last name Black. Definitely a must read!!
The History of Love
I read this book last summer.. and could not put it down!
SO good. Jason got it to me because I love the above book, and the author is married to Jonathon Safron Foer
