So the ones in red are the ones I've already read. I'm no where near the amount I had wanted to read at this point, but let me tell you- some of them were WAY harder to get through than I thought.

A Million Little Pieces, for example, the most descriptive I think I've ever read. It was tough to get through!!! (I'll admit, I skipped some of the real gross parts)

Eat, Pray, Love (which I obviously have to read BEFORE I see the move) was a really good book, but that middle section bored me a bit and I really had to concentrate to get through that part. The first section and the 3rd section were awesome and I really enjoyed them.

A Child Called It was an easy read, as in it took me about an hour and 1/2 to get through it. Some disturbing stuff in there as well, but I was able to get through that in one sitting.

Firefly Lane was soooooooooooo good! I laughed, I cried, I got mad. I picked it up at the flea market a couple of weeks ago. Even though it was close to a 500 page book, I flew through it. Kristin Hannah is now on my list of likeable authors, so I've been looking out for her books.

I'm reading The Rescue right now, and hopefully will be done with that by the end of the weekend. I'm sure I'll cry at some point in the book.

There are dozens of other books that I would love to have on my list, but I'm trying to behave and not become obssesed with buying books. My 2 newest additions are the Marian Keyes book and the Dragon Tattoo book. I found a Barnes & Noble gift card in my glove box (yay!) yesterday so I painstakingly (ha!) drove myself to B&N to use it.

I'll keep updating when I've read through books. What are some other good books I might need in my collection?
