*Just so you know before you continue reading.. *Now for the past three and a half years, most of my reading has been about really serious, in depth reviews of psychological disorders, and the brain (Parts and how we function) So when I read, I like to read something light and spunky! Something that brings a smile to my face and doesn't make my brain hurt after 90 pages of it. So This blog is mostly about chick-lit, sorry if this isn't your favourite genre, but I love it for Mexico.. So here goes nothing!
Last Night, I finished the book Remember Me by Sophia Kinsella
|This is the Canadian Edition, I think the American and British is different|
Anywho, I enjoyed this book in general. It is a story about a girls who suffers from amnesia and can't remember anything about the last three years of her life! It is a very light and funny read, I would suggest it if you are into chick lit, or just wanting something light and fluffy. Sophia Kinsella is a great writer and she really captures the mood in this book. I think a good author leaves you wanting more, and every time I read one of her books, I want another! I am happy I took the time to read this book,it was a little predicatable, but what chick-lit isn't?! I am happy to recommend this book to anyone!
Last time I was in Cancun, I ran into a problem with boredom. Yes, most of my time was filled with the gym, outings, family events,movies.. but I was still bored, I needed that 'me' time. I made the mistake of only bringing one book, and really regretted it. This time around, I was determined to learn from my mistakes, I researched and found a bunch of books that I would be interested in while in Mexico.
Here's a few books that I will be reading this year:
Things I Wish My Mother Had Told Me: A Guide to Living with Impeccable Grace and Style, By: Lucia Van Der Post
The Shopaholic Collection, By: Sophia Kinsella
The Undomestic Goddess, By: Sophia Kinsella
Lucky, By: Alice Sebold
In Her Shoes, Jennifer Weiner
So Far these are all the books I will be bringing to Mexico with me! It is defiantly not enough, if anyone has any suggestions please feel free to leave a comment :)
To end this blog, I have decided to leave you with a list of all my time favourite chick-lit books!
Love The One You're With
Heart of the Matter
All by my favourite author, Emily Giffin!
Twenties Girl, By Sophia Kinsella
P.S If you love to read, but don't want it to break your bank account, try the second hand store! I buy all my books there, unless it's a new book that I am dying to read and you can usually get new books for very cheap. I went a few days ago and got two books retail value $40.00 for 3 dollars! Awesome.
