Okay, I'm not a big reader but when I can find a book that I can't put down I am extremely happy. I just finished Hunger Games and loved it (except for book 3)!!! If I don't get into it quickly I don't finish it.

So....my question is what do you recommend I try next?

The Hunger Games is one of my personal favorites. I liked it the most by far out of the trilogy. However, I have been listening to each one again on an audiobook, and just finished Mockingjay. For whatever reason, I found myself liking it a lot more this time.

I am re-reading The Help and I highly recommend that book. It's a good one. I wanted to refresh my memory before the movie comes out.

I just finished reading all seven books of the Harry Potter series and LOVED it. I'm kind of a nerd or so I'm told.

I read the Twilight Saga and loved it too. lol

I read The Help by Kathryn Stockett a few months ago. Its an excellent a book, one that I just couldn't put down and was sad to finish. So glad its coming out into a movie in August.

Still Missing by Chevy Chase! Her second book, Never Knowing, comes out 7/5. I have an advanced copy of it. It is better than her first! It is so intense!

and I have finished 3 books already. That is my favorite part about the summer. I read These Things Hidden in one sitting. It was really good.
