I bought myself a Kindle Fire recently and it's made me remember how much I utterly enjoy getting sucked into a good book! I used to spend a lot of time reading, but these days I mostly stick to children's books. I'm already on my fifth and sixth (I'm going back and forth between a novel and some short stories) books of the year and thought I would share some of the books I've enjoyed. You can follow me on Goodreads to see what I'm reading and I always welcome suggestions for new books!
The Aviary by Kathleen O'Dell is the kind of book that I think I most enjoy reading, a sort of wonderful fairytales. It's laced with magical elements and involves a mystery that is left to be solved by Clara, the books main character, a young girl who's been shut-in her whole life.
Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut is a book I was sure I had read in high school, but I think I must have been mistaken. I would have remembered a story about a time traveling soldier! I really loved this story and will add more Vonnegut books to my library soon. I'm sure this book falls on a list of books everyone should read, so better late than never!
