Oh hello there! How nice of you to pop over and join me today! I feel like I’ve been slacking a little bit (yes, again…) when it comes to reading, but I’ve still managed to finish a few good ones that I wanted to share!

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – Oh no, there’s some crazy stuff happening at Hogwarts! Oh no, someone is out to get Harry again! Oh no, not everybody likes Harry all the time anymore! Get used to it buddy, you’ve got some rough times ahead, sir. I love this book, but always get frustrated at all the things the movie changes. Grr.

As I Lay Dying – This is definitely one of the classics. Not classic as in oh my goodness I loved it you HAVE to read it, but classic as in I remember someone did a paper on it in my 11th grade American Literature class. I feel like I got some book cred (that’s like street cred, right?) by reading it, but it was honestly not my favorite.

Like Water for Chocolate – We watched the movie version of the book in one of my high school Spanish classes, and it definitely made me want to read the book. Fast forward 9 years and I’m glad I did. This story was so captivating and I got so invested in the story and the characters and the power of emotion. I also might have cried a little bit at the ending. While in my parent’s car on a road trip. Thank goodness for sunglasses.

Modern Romance – I kind of wrote about this book earlier, but it was really interesting and a lot more serious than I expected! Still hilarious, but a really good look at romance in the modern age, how it differs from generations past, and there was surprisingly a lot that I took away from this one.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – IT JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER AND MORE INTENSE AND BETTER AND I KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN BUT IT IS STILL SO INTENSE AND WHY IS EVERYBODY DYING ALREADY?!?

Have you read any of these before? Have any suggestions for other books I might like? Let me know!

  1. Maybe someday I’ll be able to read Harry Potter with a different perspective but I’m just not a fan… Although I am a great admirer of Ms. J.K. Rowling. I’d like to have her success as an author (of course minus all the rejections she had before) 😀

    • I’ve had quite a few friends who have tried but just never could get into the series, so you’re not the only one. But like anyone who is a fan of anything, I still highly recommend it! 🙂
