  1. Unbroken is SUCH an amazing book! I read it two years ago, and it was one of my favorites.

    1. We read it for my office book club and I didn't even want to read it! "A WWII story of survival" sounded so boring to me, but it ended up being one of my absolute, all-time favorites!!

  2. OMG-- I was just going to tell you "The Art of Racing in the Rain" and it's on your list! A Christmas Box Story is good.. Heaven is For Real.. and I'm crazy so I like all the Chelsea Handler books. I need something that grasps me in the beginning and holds on tight!

  3. The Time Traveler's Wife is one of my all time favorites, too! I also really loved The Hunger Games Trilogy! :)

  4. I have several books i want to read but haven't yet. I did read the first book of Fifty Shades of Grey (online) and it's wonderful but into the 2nd book it wasn't as good.

  5. How did you like Pillar's of the Earth? I've owned it for a couple years but it has been sitting in my stack of to read... worth it?

    1. The Pillars of the Earth is absolutely one of my all-time favorite books! Seriously, pick it up and you won't be able to put it down! I have been dying to read World Without End, which is the sequel, but I just haven't had the time yet.


Talk to me, Goose!
