Speed reading was the best class I had in college lol.
I read that book as well. Not a bad read

I just finished 'Hande with Care' by Jodi Picoult. She is a sublime writer, but it wasn't my favorite of her works. I'm now reading 'The Scent of Rain and Lightning', which I picked up because I love the title. I'm withholding judgment for now... I'm not a very critical reader (which some find odd since I'm an author); I basically like any story that sucks me in and makes me feel something.

I'm looking forward to starting the Hunger Game trilogy - I've heard some very mixed feedback, which piques my curiosity!! Happy reading, everyone :)

I love Jodi Picoult! I haven't read Handle With Care, but I have read My Sister's Keeper and Tenth Circle. I absolutely love The Hunger Games.

Right now, I am reading A Dance With Dragons by George RR Martin.

Reading Storm of Swords by George RR Martin (third in the Game of Thrones series) and Spyglass by Maria V Snyder. Storm of Swords is holding my interest more, but I'm enjoying both of them.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

Well if you love both Jodi Picoult and The Hunger Games, that gives me hope! The last book I finished (The Scent of Rain and Lightning) was just ok. I'm ready for something with passion!! (or maybe I'm just procrastinating on finishing my own novel, lol)

I just finished reading The Host by Stephanie Meyer, for like the fifth time! Probably one of my favorite books ever. Even if you didnt like any of the Twighlight books, this one is REALLY GOOD<3

Baby you light up my world like nobody else.

I'm working my way through the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin, and I must say, they are quickly becoming my favourite books of all time. I highly recommend them for anyone wanting a good read.
