Biblio File's Birthday Party Reading Challenge

Jen at Biblio File is celebrating her blog's 5th birthday and in honor of that she's hosting a reading challenge. The goal is to read for five hours this weekend and read something you've been wanting to read.

I decided to participate and use this as a chance to catch up on the books I'd pushed aside because of grad school. I started Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. So far I really like it, although it had kind of a slow start for me. But I'm enjoying it and I'm hoping to spend some time later this week finishing it.

I'm glad I took the time to make reading my focus today. I try to take time to read every day, especially when I have the day off from work, but with taking a children's lit class this semester, I haven't had a lot of time to read extra books. I'm looking forward to my winter break when I can catch up on my TBR pile even more!

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
