For my birthday last year my wonderful husband bought me an Amazon Kindle. I have to say, I wasn’t sure at first because of the price (yes, he bought it before the price dropped and missed the cutoff), but now, I can say that I love it and it was entirely worth it! Maybe sometime, I’ll do a review of the Kindle and a comparison to some of the new readers that are out.
One thing I love about the Kindle is the option to create a reading list and store it online and on the Kindle. This allows me to go to Amazon and add things to my reading list and then see them when I am on my Kindle and vice versa. I added so many books to my wish list off recommendations from Amazon, that I was getting lost. I’m trying to pare down this list a little a add items based on personal recommendations.
I am setting a personal goal for myself of 1 book per month, so I’m hoping to add some recommendations to my list. Here’s what I have so far, let me know if you have any recommendations.
Currently Reading (February):
The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
I pretty much love every Nicholas Sparks book that I have ever read, this one slipped by me as I usually read them right when they are released. So far it’s a great read.
Heart of the Matter by Emily Griffin
Released in May, I have loved all of her previous books. I would recommend them if you haven’t read them already.
Nanny Returns – Emma McLaughlin
I loved the Nanny Diaries and some of her other books, I’m hoping this one is just as good.
Twenties Girl – Sophie Kinsella
I have read all of the books in the Shop-a-holic series and loved them.
These are the top 4 on my list. I have a few others that I’ve seen on lists as well. I might go back to Blue-Eyed Bride’s list and add a few more to my reading list that I haven’t read before.
Here’s what I’ve got so far:
- January – I finished one in January but the name escapes me right now, I’ll update later with the info!
- February – The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
- March – The Help by Kathryn Stockett
- April – Nanny Returns – Emma McLaughlin
- May –Twenties Girl – Sophie Kinsella
- June – Heart of the Matter by Emily Griffin
- July –
- August –
- October –

Suggestions/Recommendations encouraged! 🙂 (Oh and yes I’ve read Twilight and loved them!) I have a stack in my book case at home that I’ve read that I liked, someday I’ll pull together an all inclusive list.
