What I’m Reading 

This week I’m reading “Hollywood Dirt” by Alessandra Torre.  This is going to be one of the first movies on that Passionflix so I thought I would see what it’s about.  I have not finished it yet but I’m enjoying it so far.  


Finding Time for Reading

I recently read somewhere that you should make time for reading.  I am staring to agree with that.  I want to read more but always find myself doing a million other things instead of reading.  I need to start doing that for myself.  I have a ton of books I want to read but always put less important things in front of them.  Sometimes there are more important things I have to do but not too often.  I will let you know how it goes.

Southern Belle Reads: Me Before You

I decided to read Me Before You in case I went to see the movie.  Cause we all know the book is always better than the movie.  I have not seen the movie yet, but I will someday.  This is not the type of book I usually read.  I like books with a happy ending, but from what I had heard I knew this was going to be far from happy.  But I liked this book, far more than I thought I would.  I did not want to put it down.  Of course I would have liked it more if it had a happier ending but I think the ending really drove home a point.  But I can’t wait to see the movie to see how they compare.

Southern Belle Reads: Books of My Youth 

Each year I like to have a reading challenge. This year I am doing that Kindle Love Stories Challenge that I have been sharing with you. I already have in mind what I think I would like to do for next year. Each month next year I would like to read a book that I should have read in my youth but didn’t. I have a few ideas but I was wondering if you had any ideas too. Now I have read To Kill a Mockingbird, The Grapes of Wrath, Pride and Prejudice, and even Animal Farm. So those are off the list. Some of my ideas are Little Women, The Red Badge of Courage, Their Eyes Were Watching God, and The Scarlet Letter. Even these are not set in stone.
