New Year, new list

Okay, so I actually started my challenge in March, so I technically have a few more months left on my year, but these last few months have been CRAZY! and I fell way behind in my reading. I graduated with my bachelor's degree in December, so I got caught up in the grad school and job search and my reading list got a little neglected. I would be on book 30 for the year...

So, I'm prepping for grad school, looking for a new job, and starting a new year, so I am going to restart my book list for 2010. Hopefully, life will settle down for me a little for a few months at least. lol

Book 1

Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton

I loved, loved, LOVED this book. I've always loved the movie, so I decided to finally sit down and read the book. Crichton keeps the pace up but gives the reader a lot to think about at the same time. I'm definately going to look up a few more of his books. I also like comparing the book to movie and see what changes were made. I have to admit, there is one change they made in the movie that I was actually very happy about, but I won't say what so I don't spoil anything. lol
