what i'm reading.

i've spent the last couple of weeks since classes ended, reading books as though it were going out of style.  it started with gone girl, followed by the weird sisters, then mindy kaling's hilarious book, is everyone hanging out without me?, and finally i am finishing stieg larsson's series with the girl who kicked the hornet's nest.

gone girl was goooooood.  it was just the psychological thriller a girl like me could love.  i want my sister, corinne, to read it because i think she'll love it too.  the twist is something you're almost anticipating, but then when it happens you're like, wtf?????  and then you almost laugh.  and by the end you're so incredibly angry that you want to read it again and hope that the end changes.  read it.  please read it.

 the weird sisters was something right up my alley.  three sisters who grew up in a house full of books and a father with an obsession with shakespeare?  hmmmm...sounds like my childhood, only it was my mother and she was obsessed with austen.  even the sisters' personalities were so close to ours that it was scary.  but, i wouldn't really suggest this book to anyone outside of my household.  i think it's one of those books where you have to understand that bond - the one to your sisters and to books - so it would be hard for anyone else to read.  in my opinion.

is everyone hanging out without me? was a really fun read.  mindy kaling is pretty hilarious and while i was already interested in watching her show, the mindy project, i'm even more intrigued now.  i've never been a fan of the office, so i had no idea how hilarious kaling is, but i love a funny woman in any kind of medium.  the funny ladies in hollywood sure are getting more and more recognition these days!

it's been a long time since i've been able to read for fun.  i've missed it, and i think that's why i'm eating up this books so quickly.  i have quite a few on my list to get read before classes start again, but i'll try to keep y'all updated on what i've read.
