I have a problem!

I have had this problem for a long time now. I had it when I was a young child. It got better as I got older, and then returned once I was in college and has stayed pretty permanent in my life since then. Are you ready to hear what it is????

I am addicted to a good book!

Not like most healthy readers who read a chapter in bed every night. Or those who find comfort on a lazy Sunday afternoon in a good book. I am the reader who once I am hooked on a good book... I can do nothing else; think about northing else. It is crazy. I would rather read that book than anything else. All of my other relationships suffer. My DVR sits untouched. I just can't stand it. I will even spend planning time at work finishing up a chapter. What is wrong with me?

So this brings me to you all out there. I have just finished these two amazing books; The Luckiest Girl Alive, and The Girl On The Train. OMG They were both amazing. If you haven't read them, then you need to do it asap!

The Luckiest Girl Alive is suspenseful because it alludes to something awful that has happened, but you are not really sure what it is until the end. It is a story with a very confused narrator, and someone who I wasn't really even sure that I liked--that is, until the very end. It was SO, SO, SO, good. I highly recommend it!

The next one, The Girl On The Train, it kept me on the edge of my seat for the whole 48 hours it took me to read it. Seriously, you will be haunted by it. It centers around a disappearance of a young woman. The narrator, Rachel, is also one that it took me a long time to actually like. But in the end she realizes that the darkness that she had been lead to believe about herself wasn't true at all. I have chills right now just typing about it. You need to check it out.

Reading for me is an escape. It gives me a happiness that I cannot describe. I love to curl up on the couch with my book and a cup of coffee and just smile. It is such a way to relax.

What great books have you read lately? I need some suggestions! Seriously! I need a fix, and quick!
