Had fun chatting with the other Literary Junkies and wanted to share some of the things I'm working on in terms of my little literary world ;)
I finally got my hands on an eBook copy of a Sophie Kinsella book!

I absolutely love libraries and not only being able to borrow books by physically visiting a library but also digitally. I'm such a book nerd about how excited I am about this. However, I have like a 3-day loan on it so I'm trying to wrap this post up so I can get back to it. I feel bad for ever judging chick lit because of a few bad samples. Sophie Kinsella is hilarious and I love the character of Poppy so far!
My three top reads that just fit warm summer days with a cold drink in your hand.
I have never finished Gone with the Wind, however the last time I tackled it was a summer years ago. It's time to read this classic and watch the movie again. If you're looking to get wrapped up in a summertime romance, consider Rhett Butler for your inspiration. Bloom is a book that I love and I could see myself re-reading this on a warm summer night surrounded by my little family. Kelle is such a fun writer and blogger. After you read the book (which I love), check out her blog. Her posts are family-oriented and I feel like I would love to be a part of her life. I read The Help during the summertime and you can relate to that down South heat. It's an amazing book and one that you won't want to put down. I highly recommend it and it's perfect for the theme of summer.
I've seen the movie, heard their was a movie, and then there's a blogger.
Can you figure out that riddle? ;)
I enjoyed Silver Linings Playbook because I really liked Bradley Cooper and his family dynamic. I like Jennifer Lawrence a lot and I liked them paired together. For some reason parts of the movie didn't sit well with me. I'm hoping that after I read the book it will all come together.
I just found out that The Handmaid's Tale also has a movie made in the early 90s. Oh boy howdy- gotta see it! Finally, the wonderful Nicole from Three31 sent me a copy of Let's Pretend This Never Happened by blogger Jenny Lawson. I've heard rave reviews on all three books and I'm excited to read em.
I know that I'm completely obesessed with this book and that it needs to become a movie but it needs to happen! Plus I truly think that Henry Cavill would be an amazing Michael Hosea.
I know Nicholas Sparks is coming out with another book in September that differs from his normal writing format and that's incredibly exciting! The man is a genius when it comes to marketing a product because it works and he has one helluva loyal fan base. I remember a couple years ago saying that I would love to have that type of literary career. He might not write books of the year but he writes a product that makes people happy. Can't hate on that.
