Good Reads

Since I’m not taking any classes this semester, my textbooks are gathering dust taking a break. Since I don’t often find much time to read for pleasure when I have school reading to do, I’ve been taking advantage of the time to catch up on fun reads. Not that I’m saying that 200 pages about the function of the hyoid bone isn’t a “fun read”. Wait, that’s exactly what I’m saying. However, in case your interest has been piqued…

hyoid boneBut we can talk more about that later. In fact, your hyoid bone plays an integral role in your ability to speak. That was my summation of those 200 pages I previously mentioned.

Moving right along… a recent great read:

lovedlost  I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti by Giulia Melucci

She’s hilarious. Really, the stories of her relationships will crack you up. And there are awesome recipes scattered throughout. I honestly was reluctant to return it to the library even though I finished it two weeks ago, so I held onto it until today… the due date. Go. Read. It.

And then, because no great Young Adult series passes this girl by…

hunger gamesYou better believe I’ll go see the movie. And they better cast some cutie as Peeta Melark. Or else. But seriously, I was amazed by how much I enjoyed this book. It was suspenseful right up until the end. Well actually, it left me in suspense but that’s because it’s part of a trilogy. And yes, I do have a hold on the next book at the library.

I’ve started a new book but I’m not far enough into it to tell you what I think yet so I will save it for later.

Until next time… (which will be fairly soon because I have a recipe to share!), happy reading!


  1. I'll have to get that spaghetti one from the library. It sounds like something I would like.

    I have a hard time reading a book and then go seeing the movie. I usually gave the characters physical characteristics that are different from the actors and I spend the whole time confused.

  2. I feel the same way. That's one of the reasons I haven't see Eat Pray Love yet, I read the book a long time ago but I know it won't meet my expectations.

  3. I need to read more books! The internet sucks me in, and I end up reading more blogs/online news!

  4. I WISH I had time to read about anything other than hyoid bones and melanomas and basal cell carcinomas. No such luck. Thanks for sharing these books though! Now I know what to read if I ever have time again!
