from my bookshelf

Lately, I haven't been reading as much as I usually do. I've had a hard time finding books that really catch my interest and keep my attention so I haven't been picking up my Kindle as often. While I used to be able to go through a book in a few days, now it's taking me weeks. Awful, right? I'm hoping to get back into the rhythm of reading more often soon but wanted to share two books that I've read recently and really enjoyed.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green || The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
 
These two are New York Times Bestsellers and are reads that will draw you in immediately. While I wouldn't really consider either to have sad endings, they're very emotional and moving. I cried at the end of both. Take note, if you're at the gym and nearing the end of The Fault in Our Stars, don't finish it there. You will cry on the elliptical and get funny looks.
 
And you may recognize the title of John Green's novel. It's being turned into a movie, something I'm very excited about!
 
I highly recommend reading both. They're quick reads with interesting story lines {the second is told from the perspective of a dog!} and are books that would be enjoyed by everyone.

If you have any book recommendations, let me know! I'm always looking to add books to my "to-read" list!

  2. The Fault in Our Stars was one of the best books I read last year (maybe ever)!
