Books and Pebbles - Walnut Grove

Although I didn't actually make an official resolution this year, one thing I've really wanted to start doing is reading.  Typically I maybe read one or two books a year.  I remember last year I was so proud of myself for reading The Help.  I think that's what got me wanting to read more.  Then this past May I bought The Hunger Games Trilogy for my daughter and figured I may as well read it to see what she was reading and if it was appropriate for an 11 year old.    Well, I read all three in less than a week, I loved it.  I was actually sad that I finished it so fast and missed the characters and story.  I had no idea that there was a whole bunch of similar books out there.  I love this Dystopian Fiction genre and since May I've read 21 books!  I've turned into a bookworm.   Not all were in that genre as I also joined a book club and those have been more of NY Times Bestsellers and some Oprah booklist books.   Anyway, being the avid reader and a paper crafter, you know I would have to make bookmarks!   Here's one I made with this great line of paper called Walnut Grove by Pebbles.  I used one of the coordinating dimensional stickers as well.  The sticker I used had the word "hi" on it which didn't suit my bookmark so I added a little flower on top. These dimensional stickers make it so easy and quick to add an embellishment to a project.   You can purchase this collection at The Memory Nest.

So what are you reading?

BTW - I took this photo with the book I just finished called Legend, by Marie Lu.   After the first two chapters I couldn't put it down.  If you want to see what else I've been reading you can see my recent reads on the right hand side of my blog where my Shelfari account is linked up.    I highly recommend the Divergent series by Veronica Roth and The Maze Runner by James Dashner.

LOVE the bookmark and LOVED the Hunger Games. Need to read the other book you just mentioned. I love to read but am not always good about from Sept to May.

Love your bookmark, Cassie! I still need to get a bookmark die or two though. Glad you enjoyed The Hunger Games! It's on my reading list, too. :)
