I may have mentioned before that I love to read for fun. If you ask me to read a book for school, I will hate it unless it's something I would normally choose (which is not often the case). But once it gets to be summer (or Christmas/Spring Breaks), I voraciously read book after book. I haven't even been home for one month yet & already I've read:

Sisters by Danielle Steel
(Note: Just started reading this book today. Really good so far!)
America Anonymous: Eight Addicts in Search of a Life by Benoit Denizet-Lewis

Pill Head: The Secret Life of a Painkiller Addict by Joshua Lyon

Thin by Lauren Greenfield
(Note: I highly recommend watching the HBO documentary that accompanies this book. It is a very interesting look into the world of eating disorder rehabilitation & is very sad.)

Push: A Novel by Sapphire
(Note: This is the inspiration behind the movie "Precious".)

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
(Note: I've heard so many people rave about this book, but personally, I found it boring.)

Columbine by Dave Cullen
(Note: A very detailed look into the Columbine High School shooting: before, during, & after.)

Here's the Story: Surviving Marcia Brady & Finding My True Voice by Maureen McCormick
(Note: Who knew Marcia Brady was having sex & getting high?!)

UnSweetined: A Memoir by Jodie Sweetin
(Note: Loved this book! I watched/watch Full House all the time so it was really interesting.)

I'm pretty sure this is all the books. As you can see, I love reading medical-y type books & autobiographies. But I'll occasionally read fiction here & there if it looks good. Oh and all these books (except Sisters), I borrowed from the public library here in Rochester. It's the best way to read a lot of different books & see which ones you really like. There's also a really cool used book shop here in town that I frequent a lot. They literally have thousands of books ranging from informational to romance to autobiographies to classics to kids to comics (plus the owners a super nice guy! I've been going there since I was in my early years of high school!). That's where I got Sisters. It was only 75 cents!
Happy Reading!
