Hooked on Phonics

As most of my friends and family know, I’m an avid reader. When I start a new book, you can be sure that I’ll be out of commission until I finish it. As cheesy as it may be, I love to get lost in books. I find myself drawn into the stories and craving more. I go into my own little book world, where people usually have to yell at me to bring me out of it. It’s great.

Recently, I’ve discovered this amazing newfangled (okay, not new at all) institution called THE LIBRARY. No, it’s not some cool hipster bar, it’s the actual library, with books and stuff. Did you know that with a library card, you can take out all the books you may ever need, including cookbooks and eBooks? FOR FREE. How amazing is that? Seriously, the library is fantastic and we should all appreciate it more.

In honor of my rediscovery of my love of books (and at the suggestion of friends), I have decided to start a blog dedicated to reading. I’ll write about all the books I read, the books I start but don’t finish, why I love reading, the merits of physical books vs eBooks, etc. I figure I’ll start off with the books I’ve read in the past few weeks and then maybe backtrack a bit to my favorite books of all-time.

I am in no way a book critic and I do not claim to read only the classiest of novels. I read what I like and I like what I read. Take my suggestions as you may, leave comments, engage in dialogue, do whatever your little heart desires.

Please feel free to leave suggestions, I’ve got a huge list of “To Be Read Later” books that I would love to add to!

  1. You’ve inspired me to get a library card! Also you should read the Unwind dystology by Neal Shusterman. It’s like the giver meets the hunger games meets diver event with a healthy dose of moral quandary.
