I haven't done one of these in ages and since I read non-stop, I thought I'd share some of my recent favorites. Please let me know what you've recently read and enjoyed so I can add it to my Paperback Swap wish list!
Right now I'm reading A Clearing in the Wild by Jane Kirkpatrick. Amanda leant it to me and I am loving it! I can't wait to read the rest (which Amanda also leant me!) It's the story of a headstrong woman in 1850 who clashes with the constraints of her small religious community.
I recently finished Brisingr by Christopher Paolini. I thought this was the final book of the Inheritance Trilogy, but I was so glad to be wrong when I finished the book that is to be continued in a fourth! You may have heard of the first book, Eragon, which was made into a movie. If you like dragons and Lord of the Rings type fantasy, this series is incredible.
Another recent read was Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult. She is one of my favorite authors and she never fails to amaze me with her crazy twists. This is the story of a death row inmate who wants to donate his heart to the sister of the girl he murdered.
The last book I read is the best one I've read in a long time. It is Bitter is the New Black by Jen Lancaster. Ths is the true memoir of how a "haughty former sorority gal went from having a household income of almost a quarter-million dollars to being evicted from a ghetto apartment in less than two years." I can't wait to read her other books.
So, what are you reading? Or better yet, what should I read next?
