Here we are! I only tackled three books this month. Oh give me a break … I didn’t have vacation this month to load my Kindle for. Anywho, here’s the line-up:
Catching Fire — Suzanne Collins
As I mentioned in last month’s debrief of books, this series rocked my world. When The Hunger Games movie comes out later this month, I’m going to be one of those crazy creepers with a set of bow and arrows and a freaking Mocking Jay pin I created from paperclips. Like most things, this book wasn’t as great as the first but I still took it out in 2 days. I think the trick to any good fiction book: Put a twist at the end of every chapter. Seriously, slap the reader with something crazy during the LAST SENTENCE so they can’t help but continue reading.
MockingJay — Suzanne Collins
Again, this book wasn’t as awesome as the first, BUT, it still rocked my world and gave me the closure I needed for the relationships I had built with the characters. I’m just as embarrassed as anyone to say that I devoured a popular young adult series as a 29-year-old, but it was totally worth the brain candy. I would HIGHLY recommend this series to anyone who needs to get lost in a good book for a few days.
We Are All Weird — Seth Godin
I’ve talked enough about some of my favorite take-aways from this book in previous posts. So to make it short, I thought this book was a great reminder that embracing who you are not only drives you closer to people you can connect with on a deeper level, but it also has its advantages in the new marketplace. There were so many encouraging tidbits in this book for anyone who resists the status quo!
You all posted some awesome suggestions for great books to read last month. I’m planning on tackling a few that were suggested. If you want to join me, I’ve started Ender’s Game (already very Hunger Games esqu), Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, and likely another business book. Next month … Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Anyone in? If you have any other book suggestions let me know! I still need a nerdy but fun business book to tackle so suggest away!
