Literary Junkies Book Club {1}

This is our first link party & is a part of our new Literary Junkies book club!

{my goal for this week is to figure out how the heck to put this button on my sidebar... I'm blogger challenged}
1) What book are you currently reading? Give us a little synopsis and your review.
I'm currently reading Skipping Christmas by John Grisham.
The husband is a huge Grisham fan and loved this book, I love the movie so we decided I'll read it and we'll watch the movie together this weekend!
I love the book so far! It's funny, a light read and so accurate about the funny consumerism that Christmas has become. 

2) What are your 3 favorite books of all time?
I'm not good at picking individual books... I like authors and genres; but if I had to pick, I'd say:
1. The Great Gatsby 
2. Harry Potter {I know it's 7 books, but I love the series!!}
3. Okay, I can't decide for #3. But I love everything by Jennifer Weiner

3) What is your "approach" upon entering a bookstore? Where do you immediately head after entering through the front door?
There are two book stores I usually go to. The first being Denton's very own Recycled Books & Movies. If you're a Dentonite - we call it "The Purple Opera House on the Square".
I love walking into this book store and smelling the aroma of all the old books!

My first stop is always the sales racks outside! I can't tell you how many times I've picked up great, popular reads for $1 or $2!!

I occasionally go to Barnes & Nobles.
I honestly don't like paying their prices (I'm cheap, I know) but I love the environment!
Nothing is better than going there, parking my hiney in a chair with a cup of coffee and a great book!

My next book to read will be Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern!
I can't wait to link up & join in on the twitter party to discuss the book!


  1. I love The Great Gatsby!! :) And Jennifer Weiner, although one of her latest (can't remember which one) I listened to on CD and had a hard time getting into the actual story-line. Probably should read it so I can develop the characters in my head to help me out. ;) Thank you so much for linking up!! Can't wait until next month! :)

    1. Thanks for the tip! I *think* I have something off in my settings. :( I've read, watched and followed numerous tutorials and haven't been able to figure it out. I'm excited about the book club! Looking forward to starting the new book for Dec! :)

  2. This link up is too cute! You know I love The Great Gatsby too, and I can't wait to go see the new movie with you!

    1. I'm excited about the movie too! You should join in on the book club! I think you'd really like it!!

  3. I'm so excited to have you join the linkup AND book club! Thanks so much! Great post!

    1. Thanks!! I'm excited to be a part of it! : )

  4. I like the B&N environment too but sometimes their prices are a little high. I used to go to the one down the road from my college between classes; it had the best chairs ever.

    1. I loved vegging out in their chairs during long study days in College!
