I love chick lit. Especially when I feel like everything else in my life is hectic. Light reading like Marian Keyes or Sophia Kinsella really hit the spot. I also enjoy some James Patterson or Janet Evanovich - type books.
But every once and a while I love to really get into a good book. A long book with an in-depth story. For Christmas, Hubbs gave me the new Wally Lamb book, The Hour I First Believed (now 45% off at Chapters.ca!!). I had been wanting all Christmas to just sit and read but there was no time. Plus I was half way through another book that I didn't really like but knew I'd never finish if I started my new one.
Its an interesting book, fiction based around actual events (primarily Colombine). It was heavy but good. All nap times and other free time (including sleep time - which I regretted every morning) were spent behind the book. I finished it last night and felt sad it was over but relieved to not have to worry about the characters anymore! Luckily I found some good Sex and The City re-runs on TV so I could switch gears before I went to bed (yay Cosmo TV!!) I'll have to read something light and fluffy before digging into the next on my list, My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult.
