I love to read.  I read every night.  Like a crazy amount.  I will easily forgo sleep in order to finish a new book…which is fine until I have to wake up with my littles! LOL!

When I saw the link up at Lucky to Be in First, I knew I had to join in on the fun!
Here are a few of the books I have read recently and love!  These are my top picks! It was actually hard to choose!

  • Angel Fall by Susan Ee- SO good!  This is actually a trilogy and I read them all!
  • An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir- Wow!  This is a new book that will be a series.  I was hesitant to read it because the author is relatively unknown…but I am on pins and needles waiting for the next book now!
  • The Many Lives & Secret Sorrows of Josephine B. by Sandra Gulland – I am not a huge fan of historical fiction, or the French Revolution, or even Napoleon, but THIS book, ya’ll!  Oh my word!  SO good. Josephine is fascinating in this book.  I had no idea how interesting she was.  You totally get sucked into her world.  The book is pricey, but worth every penny.
  • The Beautiful and The Cursed– By Page Morgan- This is another trilogy ( I am seeing a pattern here). I loved this book.  It is a little dark and Gothic, which normally does not interest me.  The story line was inventive though!  I totally pre-ordered the rest of the trilogy, which are now all available.

I don’t generally keep  to read list, which is kinda of odd for someone who loves books as much as I do.  I guess I read too fast before moving on to the next book! Here are a few I do want to read!

  • House of Ivy and Sorrow interested me.  It was on my Amazon Recommends list and I liked the cover.  I am a magpie for interesting! LOL!
  • Guided Math by Laney Sammons- I think I may have read this book awhile back, but I am doing some presentations on Guided Math and wanted to brush up on the research for the framework.
  • The Last Great Dance on Earth– This is the last book in the Josephine trilogy from above.  I am in the middle of the second one right now and can’t wait to see how her life plays out!

That is what I am reading right now!  Want to link up?  Go hop over to Lucky to Be in First and join in on the fun!
