It's Official...I'm A Bookworm!

I loved everything I have read this year from the "life-altering" Twilight saga to the surprising Three Weeks With My Brother by Nicholas Sparks. Debbie Macomber is still one of my favorite authors...her gentle books draw me in. I am looking forward to Sophie Kinsella's Confessions of a Shopaholic to hit theatres February 13th. I am going to have a Girls Nite Out again for that one! If you liked Legally Blonde...I think you will like this one too!

My reading choices are usually light hearted and entertaining...nothing too serious. I highly recommend everything on this list...let me know if you try one!

I saw the previews for the Shopaholic movie when I saw Twilight! It looks REALLY cute!! I've not read the book though.

Almost done with Eclipse.... I am DYING to know what you are talking about now on your comment you left me!!! ;)

Can't remember if I've asked you...have you been on www.stepheniemeyer.com and read her partial draft of Midnight Sun? OH.MY.WORD. Is it even possible to love Edward more than before reading that!?

Dana and Daisy said...

talk about a twinkle in his eye! Havn't read this series. i know you and marchelle are big phan's

Bobbi Jo said...

I am always looking for a new book to read. My daughter just finished the first of the Twilight series. I don't like vampire anything so I won't read it. I usually read 2 books a week.
Where do you read? I read in the bathtub it is my favorite place and no one wants to see me naked so it works out great.
Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Marchelle...I have read up to page 13 of Midnight Sun...it hurt my eyes alot so I am just going to have to wait for her to finish the book. I love getting inside Edward's head...especially his thoughts while in class with Bella...she just thought he hated her...little did she know what he was plotting!

Bobbie Jo...I read while I eat and when I go to the bathroom...LOL!

You and I have read some of the same books this past year. I am a huge Nicolas Sparks fan and Love his books! Debbie M. is one of my favs too...I'm currently reading "When Christmas Comes to Town", which is one that I have never read before. I got it in my Secret Santa goodie box..=)

I love, love, love your new blog header!!!

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

Boy, I'd say you are a bookworm! Great job!

J.M.Cornwell said...

What did you think of the stories in Chicken Soup for the Adopted Soul? I only ask because I'm one of the authors.

The Momster said...

Girl, you have been doing some SERIOUS reading this year. I LOVE to read...I would rather read than anything...like do housework, or cook, or wash clothes...or dust....well, you get the picture :)

Happy New Year bloggy friend! I love ya to pieces!

Wendy said...

Love the new header!

Great List! I have read several off it. Cool idea to post it! Enjoy the new year of reading more awesome books!

Scrappy Girl said...

I enjoyed the CS for Adopted Soul alot. Being an adoptee made the book relevant to my life, but the reason I chose it was because we were in the process of deciding whether or not to adopt our foster son. I was having the most issues with the adoption out of our family and I picked the book up for some inspiration. What a treat to be an author in one of those books. Congrats on that accomplishment.

Creative Mish said...

I love the list! I've read quite a few myself! Some included on your list! I may have to steal from your list and add to my 2009 list! :)
