I've really been enjoying reading this year. I've read a total of 40 books thus far, and have really enjoyed expanding my mind just a little bit more. Here are a few I've really enjoyed so far.

Little Women, Little Men, and Jo's Boys - I don't think I'll ever read it again, but it was nice to be able to see how they all turned out and to spend some more time with my friends. :) Little Women and Little Men are to me two of the most amazing books written. I love them!

The Secret Garden - I enjoy this book. It's kind of magical and yet interesting. It gets a little too flowery sometimes, but overall it's really enjoyable. Harry Potter Series- I wouldn't necessarily say that they are the best written books of all time, but especially when I get into the 5th, 6th, and especially the 7th books, I literally don't want to put them down. I've read them more times than I probably care to admit, but I really like them. I read them in anticipation of the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 coming out in November. Big mistake to read them so early in the year. I now honestly cannot wait to see it.......

The Hunger Games and Catching Fire- I was pretty skeptical to say the least about this book series, but I pretty much went without sleep and let the house get into complete shambles while reading these two books. The third book comes out later this month, and I already have it pre-ordered. Seriously seriously can't wait.
Those are just a few of the books I can think of off the top of my head that I've been reading. What are you reading? Any suggestions for me?

Have you read The Mysterious Benedict Society? There are three in the series... I'm reading the second one right now. It's pretty good. Smart kids... saving the world... whatnot.

I think I already mentioned it to you, but Carol Burnett's new book "This Time Together" is well worth reading. She talks a lot about funny things that happened on her show and about people who meant a lot to her and why. It's an easy read and very entertaining.
