My reading list

Well, it's getting to be that time of year again...  The time of year that I stock up on a few new books. When the weather outside is chilly, I don't think there is anything better than curling up in a fuzzy blanket and reading a good book.  I think that is how I spend most of my winter so I have to make sure to buy enough to last me until May-ish. lol!  My first stop is always our little public library.  They have a big donation area where I drop off the ones that I decided not to keep from the previous year, and then they have a section of books anywhere from FREE-$2!  Some of them are brand new books too!  Here's what I found on my first trip:

Hope Ignites - Jaci Burton
Larkspur Road - Jill Gregory
Butterfly Cove - Christina Skye
Shoe Addicts Anonymous - Beth Harbison
The Name of the Wind - Patrick Rothfuss
The Cupcake Queen - Helper
Someday, Someday, Maybe - Lauren Graham
The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold
Collection of Jane Austen's 4 Classic Novels - Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma,  and Persuasion (I mostly just bought this to add to my collection, because I have read them all but Persuasion)

I always buy a couple really cheesy romance novels...because, why not?

Have you read any of these titles?  What ones would you suggest that I add to my reading list this Fall/Winter?


  1. I like that Jane Austen collection you got! That would keep me busy for a while.

  2. I definitely ugly cried in the Lovely Bones, so well written though. I have Someday, Someday, Maybe on my list too!

  3. I really wish I read more. I keep meaning to...and I buy the books...but then everything else has to be done and reading is definitely put on the back burner.

    But for a suggestion - The Art of Racing in the Rain. We cheated and listened to the audio book while driving from AZ to AL but it's a really great story.

  4. I just got through with this series and loved it!!!

  5. The cupcake queen sounds interesting! Bargain books are always the best! :P

  6. I will definitely add that to my list. Thanks Julie!

  7. Yeah, if I'm honest I bought that one just for the title alone! haha!

  8. OOOooo that one sounds really good! I just googled it. lol!

  9. I just started the Lovely Bones and MAN, that beginning part is so hard to get through when she explains what happened to her. I had to put it down and come back to it because I got so angry. yeesh! I was REALLY excited about Someday, Someday, Maybe because it's written by Lauren Graham and I loved her on Gilmore Girls. haha!

  10. I actually squeaked from excitement when I saw it! haha! It's in perfect condition and Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book of all time.

  11. Hi Julie, stopping by via Friendship Friday. Love your book stack ...and your leopard maxi.
    Nice to meet you.
    Much love!

  12. Thanks so much for stopping by! And that leopard maxi is one of my favorites! lol Great to meet you too!
