2Peas Blog Challenge

Today's challenge~
Share the most recent book you have read and think others would enjoy?

The most recent book I read was Diana Gabaldon's A Breath of Snow and Ashes. Love, love this series. My Aunt introduced me to this series 6 or 7 years ago. I've read each and every book and waited with bated breath for the next one to come out LOL This series is about Claire who travels back in time to 18th century Scotland and her life both now (post WWII) and then. Time travel and Scotland...two of my favorite loves.

Of course, I've done that with the Harry Potter series to. Finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in three days...actually want to go reread this one.

Another fairly recent read is The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Loved this book. I've heard a number of people say they got lost in the back and forth aspect of the novel but I didn't have any difficulties.

I've been an avid reader since my sister came home with The Black Stallion from the school library, I don't think she even got a chance to read it LOL I read that whole series cover to cover a couple times.

With kids it's hard to read a book without pictures but Cam is getting to the point where he's reading books like Eragon by Christopher Paolini, a recommendation from cousin Ryan, which means I get to read it too. Gotta love that.

Came over to show some Outlander love. I'm totally enamored with the series and Jamie & Claire and dread the day she really does release the last one. I'm rereading The Fiery Cross now and will start A Breath of Snow & Ashes next. I can't wait!

I have to say that I haven't read any of those, but I'm going to the library to see about checking them out. I can't wait.
