I’ve been really, really enjoying my reading time lately. I’ve finally gotten myself back into the reading groove. Now I look forward to every quiet (or even not-so-quiet) twenty minute window I can scrape together. Sitting and just being engrossed in a book is the best.
I love to read all kinds of books, but it’s not always the case to find a book that I absolutely don’t want to end. Sometimes I’m indifferent about an ending and other times I’m ready for the next read by the last few chapters. Certain books have really captured my attention, like Harry Potter, The Help, Hunger Games, The Power of One, The Age of Miracles, and Divergent. (Ugh I really tried to keep the list short, but honestly… now that I think about it, I’ve loved just too many books!)
Firefly Lane balances so many important issues in one book. I can’t even begin to describe the emotional rollercoaster (in a good way) that I went through while reading this. Friendship, family, work/life balance, careers, spouses, love, sickness (and health), ambition, mothers… daughters, lost dreams… and just about everything in between.
I can’t remember the last time a book had me so engrossed in the characters and the stories. Amazing.
What is on your reading list?
PS Warning, be prepared to cry.
