First Friday of Summer!

Friday, June 17, 2011

My school let out on Tuesday and I was just so excited for my break to begin.  Now I get to spend even more time reading which is always a plus.  And it's Friday, the best day of the week!  And do you know what that means? I mean, I get to participate in two awesome memes. Follow Friday from Parajunkee and Blogger Hop from are Friday memes, a great way to make new friends. Here's the questions below:

Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?
My favorite genre changes from time to time, but as of right now I'm in love with chick-lit novels.  If you asked me in December if I would read something so gushy and girly such as a chick-lit or romance, I would have definitely turned it down.  But I was inspired by all the positive reviews Anna and the French Kiss were getting that I just had to read that one.  Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins changed my view on the entire genre.  Since then, I've fallen in love with Maureen Johnson's work and I still don't know how I'm going to wait for Lola and the Boy Next Door.

How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) Pile?
Wow, now that I look at the actual number, I need to learn how to read faster or something.  There is, right now, 384 books in my pile.  All of those books can be found HERE.  But I update that list everyday so it's always changing.  That's a lot of books.  But if you have any awesome recommendations, I'm always on the lookout for more.  I know, I'm a book addict or in other words: crazy for books. 

I'm definitely interested in how many books you have in your TBR pile.  I hope you all have a great weekend!  Happy Father's Day for all of you Dads!
