What now?

As a graduation/mother's day present, my husband bought me a nook. I had been wanting an e-reader for quite some time, but I was holding off. For months I did a lot of research comparing the different brands and asking for reviews from my friends who had them. I finally decided that the nook was right for me, so I hinted often to him that that was the one I wanted. I knew he got my hints, but I didn't think he would act on it so fast. But I am SO glad that he did.

I've only had my nook for a little over a month, but I have been reading so much more. I love that they offer a new free book every friday and that you can share books with other nook owners.

Here are the books I've read so far:

The Witches of Santa Anna [Books 1-10] - Lauren Barnholdt

This series is very much teen based. Although I don't think it's all that well written, it's still sort of intriguing. Very easy, short reads. BUT this chick needs to hire a new editor.

My Horizontal Life -Chelsea Handler

Seriously the funniest book I've ever read in my life. Sometimes I wondered how she got herself in those situations. If you are in desparate need of a good laugh, this is the book for you.

Something Borrowed - Emily Giffin

It took me a little while to actually get in to this book. I would read and reread the same chapter trying to remember what I had read because I kept setting it down. Once some action started happening, I couldn't put it down. I heard from several people that they stopped reading because of moral conflicts, but COME's a book. You watch this stuff on tv and in movies, just read the book [to each his own]. I'm not saying that I agree with what was happening all of the time, but it made for good entertainment. I love the way it ended, so sue me. What I can't decide though, is whether I should read Something Blue. I heard good and bad things about it, but when I found out that the main character is Darcy, it shut me off. I hated Darcy. I know people just like her and I can't stand them. Should I suck it up and read it anyway? I mean, it could still be pretty decent, right?

Currently reading:

Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me

Any suggestions on what to read next?

If you have a nook and want to lend a book, let me know, I'm totally up for it.

Please start the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare! In order they are: City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, Clockwork Angel and City of Fallen Angels. I haven't gotten to the last one yet but I hope to soon. Otherwise check out Jen Lancaster's Such A Pretty Fat. Actually, all of hers are good but that's my favorite. :)

I have a nook color. Most of my books are paranormal fiction. But let me know if you're interested.
