For the Love of Books

I am sure most of you read this in school, but I wasn't lucky enough to have the chance. This is a story of surviving in the wild. A young man learns to fend for himself after the unthinkable happens and he is left alone in an unknown place. I enjoyed this book, but it helped that it was short. There were little lessons to be learned hidden within this book... that self pity gets you no where, and it is encouraging to work hard. I was surprised to find out that there is actually sequel and an entire Hatchet series. I think I might read them since I am curious as to what becomes of Brian!

Call of the Wild
I read this book when I was in school, and when I saw it at the library I felt like I should re-read it. This is a timeless classic that breaks my heart every time. I have a huge soft spot for animals and this book makes me cry like a baby. I have now made a promise to myself to never read it again! Twice is enough times to have to hear all the sad things that happen to Buck. Did you cry when reading this book? Please tell me I am not alone.

The Colorado Kid
After liking The Gingerbread Girl I thought I would give this book a chance. I truly enjoyed the way it was told from the perspective of two small city reporters. It is a great mystery and will keep you wondering until the end. It is super short and I highly recommend you give it a try if you like murder mysteries. 

What have you been reading lately? I am ready for fun and easy beach-type reads... have any recommendations?



  1. I recently read 'The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards' and 'Domestic Violets'. I liked them both. Fun and easy and surprising reads. check 'em out!

    1. Thank you I have added them to my "want to read" list on goodreads! If you think of any others I'd love to hear them. :)
