My Winter Break Addiction

This break has flown by, but then again, what break doesn't?  This has been my motto over this break:

I have been a book addict this break.  I got 4 new books for Christmas and bought another yesterday as well.  I have verged on the edge of anti-social with the amount of reading I have been doing!

Thought I would share some of the AH-mazing books I devoured this break...

I love Nicholas Sparks, however this book was a bit too Notebook-esque for me.  There were just too many similarities and I didn't love the ending.

Kate Morton is one of my new favorite authors.  I read The Forgotten Garden over the summer and loved her style.  It's a bit of a gothic fiction style but she is definitely good at sucking you into the mysteries she weaves.

I actually have already read this book, but I had to own it.  It's a heartbreaking but amazing story.

Haven't started this one yet, but looking forward to it!

I'm currently working on this one.  I have started it and while I am sure it's going to get even more interesting, I am struggling to get wrapped up in the story.  Maybe it's my conscious telling me I need to leave the fictional realm and rejoin the real world for a few hours. :)

Hope you have found a book recently that has inspired you, made you question something, made you cry, taken you away to another world, or just provided some laughter.  Maybe this will provide you with a couple new books to contemplate reading. :)


  1. A few months ago, Ricky bought me "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and I only read like maybe 10 pages and couldn't read any further. It has a really slow start and I'm contemplating whether to try to start it up again. But I think instead I'm going to read The Hunger Games series...gotta get them read before the movie comes out in March!

  2. The Hunger Games are amazing! Be prepared to buy all three quickly because I couldn't wait to read the next once I'd finished one! I started the first on Fall Break on a Thursday and had all three finished by that Sunday! I'm going to keep trekking through the book in hopes that it gets more intriguing!
