Reading Rainbow

Anyone recognize this?

If you're a child of the 80s, you'll be humming this little ditty all day long. You're welcome. Well, Levar Burton would be so proud of me. I've been on a reading binge and it's awesome! It's like I'm back in Mrs. Larson's 4th grade, furiously devouring the Baby Sitter's Club and Sweet Valley Twins to win the prized award for student that read the most books in a school year. Dr. B got me a Kindle for Christmas and I've read more books in the last 5 months than I read all of 2013 and 2014 combined. All of the books have been based on recommendations from friends. And since I consider all our readers friends, it was only fitting that I pass along the reading love. Here goes.

If you're looking for a fast-paced thrilling page turner, I am Pilgrim is for you. I was a huge fan of Vince Flynn (RIP) and his character Mitch Rapp, and this book is in that same vein.

If you have any interest in sports or history, The Boys in the Boat is a true story about athleticism, triumph and coming together and beating the odds during some incredibly tough times.

All the Light We Cannot See is about a blind French girl and a German boy who are brought together under rare circumstances by the sad perils of World War II.

And finally, a little "chick lit." If you have any interest in England's modern-day monarchy, this fun read from the girls who write Go Fug Yourself should be on your reading list. American girl meets British prince-to-be in The Royal We.

What else should I be reading?
