Read any good books lately?

bookworm new booksI’m a bookaholic. Whether it’s actual bound books(there’s just something about the way a book smells and feels in your hands as you turn the pages) or e Books, I can’t seem to have enough of them around. Being a wife, mom, and student, among other things, I don’t always have the time to read like I use to. I barely have time to write. But occasionally, I do get the chance. Right now I’m reading Pirate Latitudes, by Michael Crichton. I’m about half way through. The book was actually found on his computer after he died. I’m not sure how I feel about that. I wouldn’t like it much if someone published my work that I hadn’t got around to polishing up yet. There’s one encounter with a sea monster that doesn’t go anywhere at all. The creature is spotted, then the story moves on to other things. I’m sure, had he lived a little longer, it would’ve been made into a magnificent scene. This scene doesn’t take away from the book, too much, though. I’m still enjoying it. I’m a big Crichton fan; I especially like Jurassic Park. I’m always looking for my next book to read, although I currently have a  mile long ‘to read’ list. I also have a mile long ‘reading’ list. I read four or five books at a time. I keep one in my car, I have a couple down stairs I’m reading, a couple or three in the living room, and one beside my bed. I just finished the Hunger Games series and I’m thinking about reading it again. It’s that good. I sincerely hope I write a book as awesome as those three books are someday. I’ve been kind of busy lately and my writing, this blog included, has taken a back burner, but I’m always coming up with ideas and jotting them down in hopes of following them up when I get a minute. I’ve been trying to read books that are similar to the ones I have up in my head in hopes they’ll give me that spark of inspiration I’ve been waiting for. I seriously should do that time management blog I talked about earlier…
