books, books, more books

it's been awhile since i've shared what i've been reading as of late.
mostly i like to keep track for myself as i have a short term goal of reading 27 books before september, and 1,000+ books in my lifetime.

i like to read anything and everything.  as i was looking through the list of books i've read recently ( i keep a book diary so that i don't forget what i have read) some of the books i honestly can't remember what they are about... so obviously they must not  have been that good.  haha i will start with those and then move to my favorites :)


like i said.. i don't even remember what this book is about.  from what i remember it's probably a book i would have read in high school.  it was an easy read, but also easily forgotten.


a true story about a girl who is HIV positive, because her mother was a carrier of the disease when she was pregnant.  i listened to this book while nursing brooks and it was interesting.  it made me really sad at times, but left me feeling hopeful.


i love anything that has to do with WWII.  this is a fictional story about a girl who travels back to the time of anne frank and experiences what life was like for her.  i liked it, but i'm kind of weird.


the one and only baby book i have ever read (listened too actually).  i learned some interesting things, and have used bits and pieces... but i wouldn't consider brooks a "baby wise" baby.

i love "a fault in our stars" so much that i had to read everything else by john green.  this is probably my least favorite of the ones that i have read so far, but i still liked it.  it was kind of hard to get into but endure and it gets better.


another john green book.  i really liked this one... probably my second favorite.  i really just like good friendships and this book is built around good friendships.  read it.


a follow up to "beautiful disaster"  essentially the exact same story, but told in the boys point of view.  i quite liked it.  has some intense language, so be ye warned.


such a good book.  it made me sad for kids who are bullied and kids who bully others, but it has a good moral.  if i taught upper elementary, i would use this book as a read aloud.


i loved her book "the glass caslte" and this book was similar in writing style.  a story of two girls and their crazy mom.  i recommend.


just finished this book this past weekend.  it was superb!  i am looking forward to reading more of her books.  basically the book starts with many different characters and their different stories and as you continue reading, their lives intertwine and everything comes together.  kept me on my toes and wanting more.

there you have it.
my reads as of late.
check out goodreads to read more about each book, as i didn't feel like writing them all out.

and as always, what have you read lately that i need to pick up?

Divergent! You must read divergent! I'm going to start putting good books to read on my blog soon if you want to check it out! Have you read paper towns by John Green? I really liked that one as well!

I loved Wonder so much. I read it out loud to my class this year. And I'm on hold at the library for the husband's secret. You have an awesome taste in books :)

Ok you have to read first 2 books the Immortal Rules series (drawing a blank on the author's name for some reason), the 3rd book isn't out yet and the Legend series (Marie Lu). That would give you 6 more books right there and they are awesome! You may already have read them but just in case ;)
