Kindle Kontents: May

I'm back with another Kindle Kontents post!

1. Critical Care by Theresa Brown was one of the most raw and honest things I've ever read. It really made me appreciate the job that they do and it proves that it takes a truly special person to do that job. Through the tales that she tells in the book, you get a very raw introduction to Theresa's nurturing personality and brave take on healthcare. The story is refreshingly candid and truthful when presenting all things that go on inside a hospital. Overall, the book tugged on my heartstrings while still being educational and tactfully truthful.

2. The book I'm currently reading now is Lord of the Flies by William Golding. Many people read this as a required book for high school, but since I was in the Honors program, it wasn't required for me. I decided that I should read it since so many people find it a good and interesting read. I'm not very far into it at all, but so far it seems very strange. I'll keep you posted because it should be a very quick read.

3. Next up on the reading docket is House Rules by Jodi Picoult! I love love love her books. Always have. I own pretty much all of them! My Mom got this book for me as a gift last summer and I still haven't read it. It centers around a boy with Autism that the community believes may have committed a murder. She always reels me in. ;)

To top off this little post, I thought I would do something a little different. I know a lot of you are readers, so I did a tour of my bookshelf and did mini reviews on a few of them inside. It's a little unconventional, but fun! Give it a watch if you want! (The camera is a little shaky because its my first time using our new video camera. Sorry about that!)

Awesome video! Whenever I visit someone's home I immediately browse through their books, see what their into, so I thought this was really cool.

I also bought the order of odd-fish for the cover haha. Was reading it, but somehow stopped, will continue again soon though. It was quite bizarre, but then again, that can be amazing.

Nice blog!
