Happy Monday, lovers!
Nothing engages you like reading a book. I remember a time where I would completely lose myself in the pages of a novel for hours on end. A time when I couldn't wait to get home and curl up on the couch with my latest story. Heck, a time when the weight of my purse could be blamed on a four hundred pager. I haven't touched a book in over a year. Call it busy, call it finding new hobbies. I have many excuses that I tell myself about why I don't read for pleasure anymore. When I think about how much I miss reading, my heart feels a little heavier.
The last book I read from cover to cover was The Lovely Bones. I read it so quickly and let my imagination create the color and background for me. When I saw the film, which got decent reviews, I was so disappointed! Not because it was a bad movie, but because my brain had come up with a setting so much more wonderful.
I really want to make time to get back into reading. I hear The Hunger Games is a great read. I've also heard amazing things about The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I love reading books that are made into movies. I think one of these two might be the best remedy to my reading lockout.
What book do you think I should read? How do you make time for reading?
