  • The Hunger Games trilogy is really good...it's about a post apocolyptic America where the government makes 24 children ages 12-18 fight in a yearly tournament until only one person is left alive....it is SO good

  • I love The Boy Next Door, Boy Meets Girl and Every Boy Has One by Meg Cabot. They're all written through emails, texts etc and funny as anything! Each can be read alone but if you read them in order you get updates on the couples that you've already met. The first is about a woman who finds her elderly neighbor after she was attacked in her apartment in NYC. She then meets the man pretending to be her neighbor's nephew as a favor to the real nephew...it's a mystery, love story, comedy all rolled into one. They're all very quick reads.

  • Throwaway by Heather Huffman - When society deemed Jessie a throwaway, she didn't let it stop her from finding the sunshine in her world...
    But that world is threatened when she finds herself undeniably drawn to the mischievous glint in the eyes of a man unlike any she's ever met before.
    What starts as a simple crush will lead them both on a journey they could never have anticipated. From a vibrant St. Louis neighborhood known as Cherokee Street to a cave in the Ozark Mountains with a 120-year-old mystery to hide, Jessie fights organized crime, corruption and her own fears to reclaim her life and leave her mark on this world.

  • Jailbird by Heather Huffman- Neena Allen's life didn't exactly follow the path she'd anticipated. She couldn't have seen the twists and turns that would lead her to wander the woods, presumed dead by the prison guards. When Neena starts a new life in a little Arkansas town, she finds a contentment she never dreamed possible. The thing about skeletons in your closet is they always come back to haunt you

    i have 2 others of hers, i've read these 2, they're light reading but they're good. i'm starting another of her books now, Suddenly a Spy.

  • I read Water for Elephants and it was pretty good. I am reading In the Garden of Beasts and it is interesting.

  • I am getting ready to start the Princess Bride by William Goldman. I just finished Safe Haven by Nicolahs Sparks (Sorry for the bad spelling brain is fried this morning) It is about a woman leaving in a small town trying to hide from her abuse husband. It is pretty good read.
