My Latest Book Reading Selection

  • Mar 9, 2010
  • by
I love reading. End of story. Kinda. I usually don't have much time to read for fun because I am bombarded with text books for school that I should be reading. However, I do not have any text books for this semester to read so I have been reading books I have already read and some new ones as well. Here are my favorites.

I chose to read this book because it was in my parents collection at home, and I never really understood the Enron scandal. I was born and raised in The Woodlands, TX (30 mins. North of Houston), and I remember being young when this whole issue took place. I remember it affected a lot of people at my school because their parents lost jobs. I am still reading it now, and it is amazing. Enron definitely had some tricks up their sleeve.

This book is hilarious. I have read it twice. I literally laugh out loud when reading. Chelsea Handler is a great writer. I enjoyed reading this book over her more popular book, "Are you there Vodka, Its me Chelsea."

This book is also hilarious. Hilarious probably doesn't even give it justice though. I cracked up so many times; I loved it. However, its also a book meant for guys. I am not saying i condone ANYTHING that Tucker Max did in the novel (he was truly an asshole), but the way he writes is impeccably funny. It almost seems too funny to be true. The movie was horrible, I don't recommend that. The book, amazing.

Its Called a Break-up Because its Broken
Okay, so I am not perfect, and neither are relationships. I heard about this book my junior year of high school after going through a bad break-up with my boyfriend. This book gets you to see your break-up in a different light. It makes you pick your head up, stop feeling bad about yourself, and get back to reality. Heck, the title says it all. I actually just finished reading this book again, (after breaking up with the same guy from high school again.... 5 1/2 years later...) and it truly helped me get past what I was holding onto for so long. If its not meant to be, its not meant to be. Move on. Great book.

The Da Vinci Code, Special Illustrated Edition
I have seriously read this book three times. I love it. It will never get old to me. Dan Brown is an excellent writer. The movie wasn't so great, but movies are rarely better than the books. This book made me think about the "Holy Grail" in such a different perspective than I ever had before. I don't necessarily believe every aspect of the book, but it is also fiction. I could tell Dan Brown definitely did a ton of research, as he does with all of his books, and I was entertained each time I read it. I will probably read it again in about a year...

The Lost Symbol
Again, I love Dan Brown. This book was great, however, it was similar to The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, so while I was reading it, I felt like I knew what was going to happen. This is probably just a sign that I should stop reading his books so frequently.

What did you think of this list?

I have read The Da Vinci Code and The Lost Symbol from your list. The Da Vinci Code is one of my favorite books ever to read. The puzzles and the fast moving plot was great. I agree 100% with your view on The Lost Symbol. It was good, but too similar to the other two Robert Langdon books.  It sounds like I need to try I Hope They Sell Beer in Hell.  Thanks for the review.
