blondes have more fun... brunettes can read*

*abercrombie and their clever sayings


this is one of my favorite little spots in a book store down the street
they still exist you know!
book stores with reeeal life books!
with pages you can fold!
and turn and highlight and make yours.
i like them better that way

lately, i've gotten the what-should-i-read-next question
i love that question
because i've read some really great ones recently
... and actually!
none of them are from the fifty shades series!

[even though i've read those too]
 
so here you go


        1. defending jacob
        2. gone girl
        3. dark places
        4. sharp objects
        5. look again
        6. room 
        7. redeeming love
        8. the purpose driven life

I read Gone Girl and Dark Places, so Sharp Objects is next on my list. So good!

I love book stores. There's something so fun about going into a store and browsing around and physically turning the pages of a book.

Sarah Burton said...

Redeeming Love is one of my all time favorite books. Thanks for the great list!

Oh, Redeeming Love. I've read my copy so many times that a few pages have come loose. This is a great list!

I'm always looking for a new good read! I'm trying to finish up a book in a 19 book series now, and then it's (finally) on to the 50 Shades series, and after that, I'm going to look into one of the books you recommend!! I love reading so much :)

While we're at it, if you haven't read the Mark of the Lion series by Francine Rivers you shouldn't definitely start it soon!

Olga said...

I LOVED Gone Girl, but wasn't a big fan of Room!

Jewels said...

Oh "Look Again" is one of my favorites!!! It's a good one to have a cup of coffee snuggled in a blanket for this fall.

"Purpose Driven Life" is also another great book. That one you will need some extra time to write down things.

Chelsea said...

I used to read all the time! This post makes me miss it. I go to bookstores to relax, get a cup of coffee, and just explore all the books :) Love those pictures.

Lovely suggestions! Bookstores are like fun park for me :) I have similar quote in a postcard (although I'm back to my usual blonde hair now), it says "Blondes have more fun" "-But brunettes remember it the next day"!

I read Gone Girl & Dark Places and honestly was not really a fan of either ... actually I kinda HATED Gone Girl ... I wish I could have rewrote the ending then maybe it would have been redeemable to me!

Ashlee said...

Brunettes can Read..haha I Love it!


I absolutley LOVE relaxing in the bookstore and reading for hours on in. LOVE IT! I've also been going back and forward between GONE GIRL and ROOM. So now I think I will check both of them out! :)

Okay totally agreeing with the person above me, Unbroken is AMAZING. And I read Gone Girl too, what'd you think?
