Confessions of a fiction fiend.

If you know anything about me, then you know I love books.  I love everything about them...the way they look, smell, feel.  I want to be surrounded by them, own a million, and write at least one.

However...I'm in a serious reading S-L-U-M-P.

Everything I've read recently has been OKAY...but I need more.  I need a book that crosses my mind at least a hundred times a day.  Fictional friends I can't wait to return to each night.  There have only been a various few that have demanded my attention throughout the day.  Ones that I have to pace myself with for fear that I will end my time with them too quickly and be left jonesing for more.  

I need something to just TAKE-ME-AWAY.  Another stamp in my metaphorical passport.  A runaway romance.  Nail-biting suspense.  Literary love affair.  *sigh*

I'm open-minded & willing to try something new.  However, I have to say most of my favorites involve a goosebump-inducing romance and a heroine to worship. 

I will take suggestions.  Please help this fiend without a fix.

sweet! Ok it just wants me to log out and back in to leave a comment. Whatever. I suck at picking books. I'm the person that doesnt have any interest in a book until I see the movie preview and I HAVE to read the book first. I just finished Water for Elephants. I went through it pretty fast and am needing to see the movie now lol Right now I just started The Help. Another one I didn't care about until I saw the movie preview. And as much as Im soo not a gushy person I totally got sucked into the Nicholas Sparks books. I have a few of his books if you're interested in those. The Guardian is a bit more suspensful than just a love story.

Glad you can finally comment! Yeah I read Water for Elephants a couple years ago. I liked it, but didn't love it. Same with the Help. I'm not a huge fan of books being turned into movies so I would always complain when all the books Ive read became movies. I am stupid excited about the Hunger Games movie though. It looks true to the book.

I have the sample to the Hunger Games on my nook but wasnt sucked in enough to buy the whole thing. Maybe I need to go watch the preview :P I thought the twilight books were the dumbest idea EVER...then I needed to fill netflix with movies T wouldnt want to see while he was in WOCS so I got Twilight. Then in a week or 2 I read the last 3 books to see what happened next lol

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson is next on my list to read. Not sure if its your thing or not, but it looks good to me :)
