“What’s the most enjoyable, most fun, most just-darn-entertaining book you’ve read recently?
(Mind you, this doesn’t necessarily mean funny, since we covered that already. Just … GOOD.)”
Just one book? Really? I feel like I’ve read so many enjoyable, fun, entertaining books over the past few months that to narrow it down seems impossible. But, as someone who never backs down from a challenge, I will do just that.
The first one that comes to mind is Marley and Me by John Grogan. It may be a tearjerker, but anyone who has ever owned a dog can appreciate some of the stories told in the book. I laughed out loud, I cried (okay, sobbed is a more accurate term), I ran the gamut of emotions and enjoyed myself during it all.
The next one that comes to mind are actually two: The Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. A lot has been written lately about both of them, so I won’t bore you with more details. Suffice it to say, if you haven’t read either one of them, I highly recommend you do so immediately. They are both so enjoyable that before you know it, you’ve finished either book and are looking for more.
Ack! I’ve read so many that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed! I better stop here because I could seriously go through my entire list, much to everyone’s chagrin. Just know that I feel tremendously lucky to have read so many fabulous, enjoyable books this year.
What is your most enjoyable recent read (so that I can add it to my TBR pile)?
Happy Thursday, everyone!
Tracie – Don't let the dog on the cover turn you off completely! As an animal lover, I believe this is a must-read!
Gautami – You must do so as soon as possible. They are fabulous!!
Yet to get hold of either of those books!

I heard so many great things about Marley and Me…about the book and the movie. I don't know what it is but I can't seem to pick up this book, which is weird because I am a huge animal lover, but novels with animals on the cover turn me off. I have no idea why. One of these days I'll pick it up to see what everyone is talking about.
Stephanie – You should have seen me – sitting in bed (alone because Jim was at work) with tears running down my face for an entire chapter. Pathetic. The movie wasn't any better. We both got choked up for that one. I Capture the Castle, eh? Damn. I got another one to add to my list. You're evil… 😉
JoAnn – It has to be one of the best books I've read all year.
I just loved Marley & Me!
Man, Marley & Me made me bawl. It was ugly! But I loved the book!
I'm right there with you on The Hunger Games/Catching Fire. I loved both of them.
I just finished I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. Delightful is a word that comes to mind. It was so good!
