The Werk! Place Ombre Dress Valentine's Day21

If you haven’t figured it out already, reading is my first love.

Seriously, book and magazine stores bring me such joy. I could sit in the corner reading excerpts of interesting titles and flipping through the images of magazines with intriguing covers until my head explodes. I’m a fiend for perfect word play and losing myself inside of an author led imaginary world.

It’s the ultimate escape.

TWP Approved Reading List

I have to be honest, it’s been a while since I’ve cleared my schedule to read and finish an entire book in one sitting. The Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah,  Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James are the first books that come to mind that actually left me a little winded and wanting more.

So, of course, I’m on a personal search for more books to add to my ‘clear the schedule’ list. Get into the list of books that I’ve already read, in the middle of reading and looking forward to reading here.

I would love to hear your recommendations for books that you just couldn’t put down in the comment section below.
