The Host

I love reading. It is so relaxing and exciting at the same time. I love to get involved in the characters of another place and time and learn all that I can about that time. I read everything. I read almost every day and probably too much. But hey we don't have t.v. so what am I supposed to do for entertainment? But I have never been a really big sci-fi reader. It is just a subject that I haven't explored much. So when Stephannie Meyer's new book came out I wasn't sure about it. But since I liked the other books I decided I wanted it and Cameron got it for me for Mother's Day.
I really enjoyed the read. It is amazing how she can come up with ideas that seem so different from the norm. Anyways it caught my attention, didn't turn out exactly like I thought it would and it made me cry. What more can I ask from a book? I finished it today. Now I am sad because what am I supposed to read next? Any ideas?

I also made some strawberry jam. I love canning and feeling the satisfaction of making something for cheaper than I could buy it. I bought everything for less than 15 dollars and made 12 jars of jam. It was a good day!

Here are some books you should read:
Inkheart - Cornelia Funke
The Book Thief - Markus Zusak
Keturah and Lord Death - Martine Leavitt
Those are a few of my all time favorites.

And here are a few I want to read that I hear are really great:

Peeps - Scott Westerfeld
(Uglies, Pretties, and Specials by him are also good ones. I have read those.)
Bound - Donna Jo Napoli
Breath - Donna Jo Napoli

Happy Reading! I enjoyed The Host, but don't think it was something I have to re-read really. We'll see. Maybe in a year or two.
