I'm a Bookworm!

As you guys probably read, I got the Nook Color for my birthday and let's just say I'm IN LOVE!!!! My Nook goes (almost) everywhere I go!

The first book I bought was Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. I really wasn't sure about this book at first, but everyone was raving about it so I bought it and I'm SO glad I did! I really enjoyed this book! Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson will be in the movie that is coming out in April and I can't wait to see it! I think I finished this book in like 3 days...I couldn't put it down!

After Water for Elephants, I wanted something a little more "chick-lit." The Shopaholic Series has been around for quite a few years and I just love them. They are easy reads, but the main character is SO funny to me! Mini Shopaholic was just as cute and funny as the others! :)

I am currently reading The Help by Kathryn Sockett and am enjoying it. Well, I don't know that I'm enjoying the story because so far it's rather sad, but I'm enjoying the book. It takes place in Mississippi during the early Civil Rights Movement and I'm absolutely appalled by the way the "hired help" is treated in the story. I'm really anxious to see how the story unfolds! AND, this book will also be a movie, out in August, according to the web!

If any of you read any good books, I would love to hear about them!! I should be ready for my next one sometime during the upcoming week! I've got a few on my "Wish List" that I will be purchasing soon. I'll keep the blog posted! HAPPY READING!

I read Water for Elephants a couple of years ago, and really enjoyed it. I have Ape House, by the same author, on my wish list. I am waiting on The Help to come out in paperback...I've heard so many great things about it, I can't wait to read it.

Right now I'm reading Grisham's latest book. Like most of his others, it's a page-turner, which is just what I needed after reading a couple more "serious" books before this.

Enjoy that Nook!
