reading is sexy ...

Rory Gilmore says so.
 

This is one resolution that I think I will enjoy! My goal this year is to read a book a month. That may not seem like a lot to some of you bookworms, but I haven't picked up a novel since June! Yikes!
In fact, I haven't even started January's book!
Looking through my small collection at home, I have decided to give this one a shot. Lipstick Jungle, by Candace Bushnell. I loved this TV series when it aired for a brief time, before getting cancelled. In fact, I was mad when they cancelled it mid-season. Who does that?!? Anyway, I found this at The Dollar Tree last year sometime. A book for a buck - sign me up!
These next 2 books actually have movies releasing next month ... has anyone read these yet? Are they worth the time? I have been debating on snagging these ... thoughts?
 
Beautiful Creatures - Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
Ethan longs to escape his small Southern town. He meets a mysterious new girl, Lena. Together, they uncover dark secrets about their respective families, their history and their town.
 
Safe Haven - Nicholas Sparks
A young woman with a mysterious past lands in Southport, North Carolina where her bond with a widower forces her to confront the dark secret that haunts her.
 
 Eventually, I will finish The Hunger Games Trilogy ... I have only read the first one so far. I am thinking I will read them right before Catching Fire hits the theaters. That book I read in June? It was 50 Shades of Grey. I was not impressed enough to continue on to books 2 and 3.
What's on your reading list this year? Have any suggestions for must-reads?

I like reading books before I see the movie - I figure they must be kinda good if they decided to make a movie out of it (not always the case though!)

I've got these on my to-read list.

I adore anything Nicholas Sparks. I am waiting for one of my favorite bloggers' books to come out Feb. 8th. www.thebigmamablog.com

Also, another favorite blogger is www.thenieniedialogues.com...her book is "heaven is here"....amazing!!!

I want to read Beautiful Creatures because everyone seems to love the series. I have never read a Nicholas Sparks novel though.

I used to have that shirt Rory is wearing it. Love!

I didn't know Lipstick Jungle was a book. Tell us how it is! I think I want to read Beautiful Creatures too, before the movie comes out.
