Help A Girl Out

I love books. I love everything about them; their smell, the way they feel in my hands, how they transport me away from my everyday life. I can almost always find something good about a book--any book--a clever turn of phrase, a character to which I can relate, an intriguing plot, an author's command of a subject about which I know nothing and their ability to educate me in an entertaining way. And if a book doesn't have any of those things? Well I've been known to be complimentary of the cover design or an author's photo. I'm a fan of books, is what I'm saying.

I read a lot. In fact, I sometimes have two or three books going at once. I know this will probably come as a shock, but I have been known to let the laundry slide and let the housekeeping duties go because my nose has been buried in a book. Um, hey there. Can I help you get up off the floor? Smelling salts, perhaps? No? Not that shocked, eh?


I need your help. I am out of books. I mean, obviously I have access to books, I have a library card after all. I am within 5 miles of a bookstore. I'm not a total Philistine, y'all. But I have nothing to read. I am in dire need of some recommendations. My hands don't know what to do with themselves. If they don't get a book in them soon, I may be forced to do--oh, I don't know--housework!

So do tell. What have you been reading lately? What page-turner has been in your possession? What book have you been foisting upon all your friends telling them that they have to read it or you simply cannot be their friend any longer?

C'mon. Help a girl out. Give me your recommendations in the comments. I'll be your best friend. Lucky you!
