Bookwormish. (Literary Junkies #5)

1. What are you currently reading? Tell us about it.
City of Bones -The Mortal Instruments. I haven't ready a YA Fantasy in awhile. I honestly expected it to "grab" me more than it does. I think that the age of the characters really bugs me. I mean, the girl is 15. Come on, dude. I guess that's the point of YA and all. It's not a bad book by any means but I find that I can "put it down" which doesn't happen in books I love.

2. Recommend a book that has changed your perspective on life.
Ann Voskamp - 1000 Gifts. Amazing book.

3. What book do you recommend the most to people?
I recommend the Outlander series & the Game of Thrones series a lot.
4. What are the top 3 books on your “to-read” list?
(I'll make this my top 3 looking forward to coming out books.)
  • The next Outlander book this Fall. Most excited about this.
  • Shatter Me #3 (no idea when this is coming out)
  • Divergent book #3 (This Fall, too I think)
5. What do you “do” while reading? (i.e. listen to music, eat) Any weird reading habits?
I read wherever I can when I'm really into a book. Waiting in line, in parking lots on my lunch break, or while cooking dinner. I prefer to either read while taking a nice, long, hot bath or while snuggled on the couch (after Zeke has went to bed of course.)

One Thousand Gift {book recommendation}

My friend let me borrow "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp last week. I'm about a third of the way through it & I have to tell you that I love it.

Picture from: http://onethousandgifts.com/

It's like poetry for the soul. Seriously good stuff. My eyes have been opened to how much I hurry through life & let so many pretty stellar things I should really see & be thankful for just fly by without recognition.

Eucharisteo. It might just be my next tattoo.

(I wasn't paid or anything to recommend this book. I just really like it.)
