What I’ve Been Reading

When I started this blog I thought I’d be writing more book reviews. Turns out that isn’t really my thang, but since I do enjoy talking about books I thought I’d try this type of post, inspired by Megan, where I share what I’ve been reading lately. First up:

I know I’m a little late on the bandwagon with this one, but since I was thirteen when it came out I think you can forgive me. Very heavy stuff, but a great story. After this, I read:

What have you been reading lately? Are you a fan of historical fiction? Any other adults out there who like to read children’s books?

  2. Ah, the borrowers is so great and so cute. The Kite Runner is definitely at a the opposite side of the spectrum. Good choice to pair the two together for maximum brain and emotion relief, haha.
