Book Worm

Every summer I lifeguard and that usually means a lot of free time while working.  I should explain that my job is no normal working environment, I am surrounded by 15 awesome humans, most of whom are my best friends. We're usually hungover from some terrorist attack that we caused at ,The Ruck (local dive bar) the night before. I digress, I usually have a lot of free time, when I'm not laughing from hangover delirium or bitching about how someone copied my mega original Victoria secret bathing suit; that's when I read.  I read tons of book in the summer and never watch tv, (except Trueblood) because when you find a good book not even The Real Housewives of New Jersey can pull you away.  I understand that in our inherently stupid, ADD society, no one believes in the power of the book anymore, unless their on your trendy ipad or kindle.  So, here are some of my favorite books of all time; I must warn you that my book taste, like my music taste, tends to be depressing and sort of 90's.

1.) I Know This Much Is True By: Wally Lamb  .
2.) The Glass Castle By: Jennette Walls 
3.) Apologize apologize By: Elizabeth Kelly
4.) A Million Little Piece By; James Frey
5.) White Oleander By: Janet Finch
6.) Harry Potter 1-7
7.) The Highest Tide By: Jim Lynch
8.) To Kill a Mockingbird by: Harper Lee  ( I felt obligated to put this out of the cult following this book has)
9.) The Divine Comedy ( Inferno) By; Dante Alighieri
10.) Mudbound By: Hilary Jordon
11.) Skylight Confessions By: Alice Hoffman

Since I'm that terrible person that judges a book by the cover, feast your eyes on the greatness off all these books covers.
