Nory’s Bookshelf

19 Aug

I don’t know if it’s because I’m dating a man who reads something other than the sports section, that Darling and I have turned our conversations into more serious talks (all good things, of course) or what it is but I’m reading many books at the same time:

  • Twilight. I got sucked in and I’m glad for it. A friend confessed to me in a whisper a few weeks ago that she was reading the “Twilight series.” Due to her hushed tones I thought perhaps they were those bodice-ripping type novels, but no, it’s a vampire series book, which I’m sure many of you have heard of. I’m only 150 pages into the first book but I’m most definitely hooked. Bonus: TDH thinks it’s awesome I’m reading a vampire series. He loves them.
  • A Farewell to Arms. It’s Hemingway. It’s classic. It’s not a hard read so long as you aren’t overanalyzing the symbolism to death like we had to in high school. And even though I’m not actively analyzing it I can see the meaning behind the words.
  • Gentleman & Players. Ok, well, I haven’t started it yet, but it’s on my bookshelf begging to be read.
  • International Business: A Manager’s Perpsective. Yes, this my book for grad school. So far, so good. Intriguing without being boring. Informative yet not fluffy, cheesy writing like some books try to do.

What’s next for Nory’s Bookshelf?

  • Certain Girls (the new Jennifer Weiner). I love her books. It’s not deep, but she makes some good points.
  • The Blind Assassin. Saw the book at Borders on Saturday and decided I should read it.
  • The rest of the Twilight Series.
  • Midwives.
  • The Kite Runner. I think I’m the only person who hasn’t read it.
  • Some sort of book about the Mafia. I saw a bunch of them the other night and I just feel like reading one.

I’m open to book recommendations so if you have one, please share! What’s your favorite book of all time?

    My favorite book that I’ve read recently was The Other Boleyn Girl. It is soo good!

    I haven’t read THE KITE RUNNER, either. So, you’re not the only one.
