Tell me tell me..

I've recently gotten some new followers and I haven't posted one of these in awhile so I thought, what better way to ease into the week with a little get-to-know- you! I grabbed these questions from

What have you just read?
I finished reading Orphan by John R. Weber last Thursday. Before that I read Accomplice by Eireann Corrigan and The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton. All pretty great reads in their one way.

What are you reading now?
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson and I started The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett and I have decided to give up on Bitter is the New Black by Jen Lancaster for the current time. It was irritating me.

Do you have any idea what you'll read when you're done with that?
It will most likely be either 12 Times Blessed by Jacquelyn Mitchard or Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates.

What's the worst thing you were ever forced to read?
Probably of Mice and Men or King Lear.

What's one book you always recommend to just about anyone?
American Wife

Do you read books while you eat?

While you bathe?

While you watch movies or tv?
haha yes. I am so guilty of telling my husband to turn something on and then I hide behind a book! But he always gets antsy and needs something to do and so to leave me in peace I need to find something to occupy him!!

While you're on the computer?
I have multi-tasked by doing this before.

When you were little did other children tease you about your reading habits?
Nope, I've always been a great reader and nobody ever made fun of me for reading all the time.

What's the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn't put it down?
hmmm..I don't even remember. I pretty much like my sleep during the school year and haven't read anything late at night yet this summer!

Have any books made you cry?
All the time.

Please answer some questions so I can get to know some of you! Plus, I always like to see what people are reading!! ;)

Don't forget to enter my 3rd summer giveaway!!

I JUST finished Life of Pi - it was hard to get into, but once I got into it I REALLY enjoyed it. A very well-written, engaging story!

I'm currently reading American Wife! Only about 70 pages into it but I LOVE it so far! I just had to read it after you guys did it with your book club and Becky was nice enough to send it to me!! I also plan on picking up the Secret Garden from the library TODAY so I can participate in this months book club!

Aww, I loved Of Mice and Men when I read it a few years ago. I do want to read The American Wife.

I can't remember what I just read haha- wedding plans?
I am reading Love the ONe Your With NOw, and I have a huge stack of books I could take with me to Hawaii, but I'm not sure if it's a good idea to take all of them since I plan to do more than just read there haha.

I also could not STAND Of Mice and Men, and wasn't a fan of The Metamorphosis or Lord of the Flies either, oops.

I recommend Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to a lot of people.

I definitely read while I eat and sometimes while I watch TV, though clearly I'm not really watching (and would turn it off if Eric wasn't home)

I was never teased for reading and I don't stay up too late reading because like you, I need my sleep while working!

Books have definitely made me cry :)
