Good Reads

I absolutely love to read and have been trying to fit in more of it since the new year started. Sometimes it can be hard to fit in the time to do reading for fun in college, but I always enjoy it and never regret the time I spend reading.

I thought I'd share some of the good books I've read lately.....

Family Affair - Debbie Macomber
This book was a super short read. I think it was less than 100 pages, and I finished it in less than a day. I really liked it though - sometimes it's nice to read a short book. I love all of Debbie Macomber's books because they are all romance novels. She especially writes good Christmas books!

Buried in Buttercream - G.A. McKevett
This was a mystery novel, and I really, really like mysteries. I admit that I chose it based on the title because you know how much I love to bake. It actually had nothing to do with baking, but it did revolve around a wedding (hence the buttercream on a wedding cake), so I still really enjoyed because I'm also a sucker for anything wedding related. It was a good murder mystery story, and I was shocked by the ending.

Wedding Night - Sophie Kinsella
This book was such a fun read. It's about a girl who meets up with an old boyfriend, and they decide out of the blue to elope in Greece. Her sister and his best friend set out to try to stop their marriage since they think it's a big mistake. The book was funny and filled with a lot of twists. I would definitely recommend it!

Remember Me? - Sophie Kinsella
Sophie Kinsella is obviously one of my new favorite authors. I love her Shopaholic series (although I haven't read all of them yet!). I think her writing is fun, and her style is chick lit, which I'm a fan of. The concept behind this book reminded me a lot of the movie The Vow. Lexi wakes up in the hospital after a car accident only to find out that her last memory is from three years ago. She wakes up as a completely different person - she's rich, skinny, and tan; she has a high profile job; and she's married. And she can't remember anything about how she got there. The story follows Lexi while she tries to piece her life back together again. I really enjoyed reading this one. I think this might be my favorite Sophie Kinsella book that I've read, and one of the best books I've read in a long time!

Next on my list of books to read is The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris by Jenny Colgan. Is that right up my alley or what? :) I've read one of Jenny's other books called Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe and it was super good. I'm so excited to read one about chocolate AND Paris - two of my absolute favorite things in the world! The book releases on February 4th (at least, I think - I keep seeing online reviews of it, which is confusing me since Amazon says it hasn't released yet.....), and I need to find a way to get it ASAP!

I hope you all had a fabulous week. I'm so happy it's almost the weekend!
