WELCOME to the Small Book Blog! I am a voracious reader. I love losing myself in books and cannot wait to read myself into my next adventure. It is because of this love for books that I created this blog. I want to share my passion of books with you! I hope you enjoy my recommendations and reviews. My goal is that they will lead you to a new book, series or author, that you can fall in love with and recommend to others as well.

Hello Again!

Hello dear readers!
Sorry it has been SOOOOO long since my last post but life took over my world of books. I now have a 4 month old beautiful baby girl and am loving reading to her. It’s amazing how many of the kids’ books I remember from my childhood as well as how fun new children book finds are. Mo Willems is definitely a new favorite author in our house hold.I am slowly becoming able to fit my back log of books into small snapshots of reading time between work and family activities. I think I have read (*gasp*) 7 books since September 2013! I know, I know, how horrible when you consider I was reading one to two books a week. That said I am also getting pickier about what to read with my treasured time.

One series I did just finish reading was the Divergence series by Veronica Roth. I was so excited to sink into it, especially knowing it is highly recommended to The Hunger Games lovers. I recommend the series with a “grain of salt.” It’s not nearly as good as The Hunger Games but is still a very interesting concept, interesting futuristic world, and violent read. The first two books in the series (Divergent and Insurgent) are fantastic. However, the third book (Allegiant) was a letdown. I felt bogged down reading it and it was all I could do to finish the book. It just didn’t have the same flare as the first two books and the characters let me down.

Well, I need to sign off for now but will work on posting book reviews as I am able to! In the mean time I am rating everything in GoodReads so look for me there.
