“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” ― Stephen King

Sunday afternoon The Hubs and I went to see Catching Fire, the new Hunger Games movie. It was awesome, even better than the first! But boy did it leave you on a major cliff hanger! I read the first Hunger Games Book before I saw the movie but never got around to reading the next two. So after the movie left me wondering "what the heck was going to happen next" I rushed to buy the final book!

I have always loved to read and I usually always am reading a book. I read about thirty minutes before bed each night. But since I started teaching I have been in a major reading slump. Sunday night I lit some Fall candles, turned on a fake fire on t.v., and got snuggled up on the couch with two cats and Mockingjay, the final book in the series.

It. Was. Glorious. I read for an hour and a half, am loving the book and was once again bit by the reading bug! If you are looking for a good book to read I recommend The Hunger Games series and any of the books below! Click HERE to go to my goodreads page!

Love that I've found a book buddy! Vacation time has been the first time in a long time I've been able to read for more than 30 minutes at one time. I'm already one book down and almost done with the second! Yay for teaching breaks. Enjoy!

I miss reading! I read blogs and magazines because you don't have to commit to a large chunk, but I rarely pick up a book anymore, because either I don't have time or I read anyway and everything else gets neglected!
