Fall Reading

I've been on a bit of a reading kick ever since my vacation in August in which I read four books.  Yes four books.  Ok, it's not like I was reading great works of literature.  They were more of the Tori Spelling and chick lit variety, but still.  Since then I have been wanting to do nothing but read.  In the time since the vacation (which was in August mind you) I have read the following:

The last book is by Elin Hilderbrand who is an excellent author.  I have read two other books by her and I think she is fabulous.  Her books are set on the island of Nantucket and they have made me want to visit there.  Maybe one day I will!  If you enjoy a quick, easy, entertaining read then I would suggest her.

I'm now reading:

Jodi Picoult is hands down my favorite author.  I seem to love everything she writes.  I enjoy that she makes you look at things from a different perspective.  Sometimes you think you know how you would feel about a situation and then you read her book and suddenly you aren't sure what you believe.  I can never really explain what it is about her books.  I think you just have to read them to understand.  

With all this talk about books, I have decided that September will be the beginning of one of my 30 Before 30 Goals - Reading 2 books a month for a year.  I can totally do it!

I used to read like crazy when on breaks from school, but since completing my MBA, I've barely read at all!! I thought I would be tearing through some good books but I have been lazy, ha! Now I know how popular Jodi Picoult is but would you believe I've never read any of her work? I should make that a goal... :)

You definitely should read some of her books! They are pretty good.
