10 Day YOU Challenge: Day 4


I love to read! Last year I read 45 books and this year I've been on a quest to read 50. The four books, I'm going to talk about today are great reads. If you haven't read any of them, I highly suggest you pick them up soon and add them to your reading list. 
Choke by Stuart Woods
Choke was the first book that I can ever remember myself not wanting to put down. I wasn't much of a reader when I was kid and when I became a young adult it was the same thing. I think I was in high school when I got this book and it completely changed the way I read. I loved it. I couldn't get enough. It sparked my love of reading and the book was so good!
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I read this book in one sitting. I had been hearing things about it but before it became super popular. I didn't know if it was going to be good or not but the concept sounded interesting. Then I read it and it blew me away. I read the whole series in a week.
sTori Telling by Tori Spelling
This book came to me after a break up. I was doing anything I could to keep my mind off the state of my personal life. I read her book and it completely changed how I felt about the break up. I realized that if someone so rich and famous could have that many problems in their personal life that I was doing pretty good for someone who wasn't rich nor famous. Everyone has problems. Everyone has issues. This book definitely reassured me of that. Plus Tori Spelling is actually really funny.
New York Dead by Stuart Woods
This book was the first book in Stuart Wood's series about Stone Barrington. I truely believe that if Hollywood would get off their butts and make some new, originial movies that this could be the American James Bond. Stone Barrington is an ex NYPD cop/detective who took a bullet to the knee. Once he left the force he got his law degree and practices law in the city. He always find himself in crazy situations in exotic locations with women flocking to him. He's also got his best friend/ex partner always by his side.
