I've been reading TONS lately…I so love to read and always have. Some of what I'm reading are things I read years ago and wanted to re-read. Books that I like I'll read multiple times (or listen to multiple times on audio). Do you read books more than once? Here are a few of the books I've re-read lately:
As you can see I've been on quite a Koontz kick lately…he's been one of my favorite authors since I was in middle school and some of his books I haven't read since about that time. I've been re-reading a lot of his books both new and old. Lightning was just re-released, too, so it's a great time to pick it up if you haven't read it. The Odd Thomas series really captivates me though and I just re-read it for the 4th time! Such amazing books full of so much insight on human nature…I've blogged about those books before so you can do a search (in the sidebar) if you want to read more about them.
It's been a while since I've blogged books! I've read several new(er) books recently as well and here are some of my favorites:
For those of you that don't know, I'm a HUGE Margaret Atwood fan. The Blind Assassin is one of my fave books ever and I love many of her others as well. Her newest release, The Year of the Flood, is also very good and tells a post-apocalypse story (it's kind of a sequel to "Oryx & Crake"). The ideas and commentary in the book are fascinating and will certainly leave you wondering about what lies in store for mankind with all of our continuous meddling with nature.
In case you haven't read Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol yet I would certainly recommend it. While I thought it was a bit too predictable and not quite up there with The Da Vinci Code I did really enjoy it. I'm really a sucker for novels with that historical reference written into the story…which could be why I've watched National Treasure about a billion times hahaha. Also I thoroughly enjoyed Stephen King's Under the Dome: A Novel and am already re-reading it to pick up more of the details. The story is well paced and I love the perspective of the "ant in the magnifying glass" King used to tell the story.
I have to tell you about Catching Fire (The Second Book of the Hunger Games) by Suzanne Collins though…I LOVED IT! So much that I read it twice right in a row. I don't want to say too much and spoil it for you but I cannot wait for the third book in the series to come out this fall as I'm desperate to find out if Katniss will end up with Peeta or Gale (Dear Katniss, please pick Peeta. Thanks! <3 Angel). In case you're not familiar with it this is actually a young adult book series and it's fabulous. I would compare it to the Giver or A Wrinkle in Time and highly recommend it for teens & adults alike!
Any book recommendations out there? I'm always interested in finding fab reads so send em my way!
