Dreaming With Open Eyes

I always feel guilty for not reading more or faster, but then I stop and realize that I read more than most of the population so I guess I'm ok with that.

I recently read a couple of really great books so figured I would share. First up is an amazing science fiction novel that is part of a trilogy.  Red Rising by Pierce Brown transported me to this crazy distopian world where I became so obsessed with the characters and the story I couldn't put it down.  I finished this book so fast and immediately raced to Barnes & Nobles to pick up the sequel.

The second book entitled Golden Sun was also phenomenal.
The second book was just as great as the first one and I haven't read anything so enthralling in a while.
The character development is so detailed and perfect that they all seem so real.  I became so invested in them I even cried a few times… shhh don't tell anyone

I raced through the second one eager to know what would happen that when I went to buy the third one and found out it hasn't been released yet I was crushed.  Luckily it should be out in a couple weeks and I have already pre-ordered it so I won't have to wait.  It is titled Morning Star and is supposedly due sometime in February 2016.

These books are so well written and truly an amazing read from the very first page to the last.
I highly recommend picking up the first one if you need something great to read.

I am currently reading IT by Stephen King and I must say, I am pretty impressed.  I know I saw the movie when I was really young but I don't really remember and the only Stephen King book I recall reading was pet cemetery when I was like 9 or something.  Needless to say I wanted to read a classic and what better place to start than with a terrifying clown book.  The book is huge and the words are so small I feel like I'm reading the bible but I'm working my way through it.  I must admit it kind of makes me feel dumb, I'll read for hours and realize it was only 20 pages but the font is seriously small so I won't dwell on it.  So far its amazing and although I haven't finished it yet I highly recommend it if you want a good taste of something creepy.

Reading is good, so if you aren't reading find a good book and if you are congratulations on being an intellectual

A book is a dream that you hold in your hand.
