Reading is something I love to do - except when it was for school, then it was boring. As I said last week, I'm currently reading Harry Potter and am loving every minute of it! I'm almost done with the first book! There's so much I forgot about the wizarding world that its sorta like reading it for the first time! I know, I probably sound like a huge dork but reading is a GREAT thing!! I wish kids these days read more.
I don't have a huge library like my parents, my library consists of books whose stories I fell in love with. I must say though, Emily Giffin's latest book did not do her justice. She is probably my favorite author and Heart of the Matter was not like her other uplifting books. I asked for it for Christmas and read it in about a week and I was highly disappointed. I do not recommend that book, but her others especially Something Borrowed and Something Blue are great, easy reads that you'll love. They tie into one another nicely too.
Surprisingly, my favorite book that I've read numerous times is not an Emily Giffin book.

Girl With A Pearl Earring is a great story about a servant living in 1600 Delft. Griet is a maid in a painters house, who has 5 children [with 1 on the way], a wife, and mother-in-law who can't stand her. She over comes all the crap that they throw at her with a twist. It was made into a movie with Scarlett Johansson starring, but I haven't seen it. I don't really care for Scarlett so that's probably why I haven't seen it. I would highly recommend the book if you're looking for something different.
As a goal to myself to try and read more, I thought I would try something new and do a New Book Sunday post with a new book I've read with a review. I'd rather read a book with someones personal take on it, rather than reading reviews on Amazon [even though I'm a huge Amazon fan!]. This could be a new kind of book club blog style!
