Great Books for a New Year

This past semester I haven't had that much time to read for pleasure. I never realized how much I missed it until I downloaded some books to have while at home for break! Although I love the feel of real books, lately I have found connivence in using the kindle app on my iPad!

Below are some of the books I have downloaded and have been reading over the break that I have been recommended by friends and am now recommending to all of y'all!

Great Books for a New Year

1. Gone Girl or any of Gillian Flynn's mystery novels
I read Gone Girl this past summer and couldn't put it down. Parts of it are kind of crude but if you ignore that and instead just follow the story line then it is a really entertaining book! Right now I am reading her book, Sharp Objects, and it is another easy read for anyone who loves a mystery. If you aren't a fan of murder mysteries then these may not be the books for you but if you do enjoy novels of this sort then you will most likely enjoy her books!

2. Dash and Lily's Book of Dares
This was recommended to me by a friend at school and was such a cute quick and easy read! It is set at Christmas time in New York City (talk about perfection) and is written for young adults! It is kind of a romance but is super well written and entertaining!

3. The Book Thief
This is next on my list! I have heard so many awesome things about this book and can not wait to start it. I hear that the movie isn't quite as good as the book but that is to be expected. Regardless, I am excited!

4. Where'd You Go Bernadette
My aunt recommended this to me and this is another one I am hoping to read before heading back to school!

5. Divergent
I began listening to this on my drive home from Furman and am looking forward to listening to more of it soon! If you like the Hunger Games you will probably like this one! I was a bit skeptical at first but am excited to get through this series! PS, Divergent was made into a movie  that will be in theaters in March!

6. The Fault in Our Stars
I have heard that this book is really inspiring and is another that I am hoping to get through this before heading back to school!

What books have you been loving?

  1. I just finished Divergent (and I'm already half way through the second book in the series). They're such fast and easy reads...but so good! I can't wait to see how they make it into a movie, although I usually prefer the book in the long run :)

  2. The Fault in Our Stars is such a great book, and John Green is awesome. I think my favorite book of his is Looking for Alaska!

  7. سنحاول في ذلك الموضوع التعرف على الذباب الذي يسكن معنا في منازلنا، ما هي أشكاله؟ أسلوب القضاء عليه أو التخلص منه؟ وسنحاول التعرف على عوامل وجود الذباب في منازلنا، وكيف نتخلص من تلك العوامل حتى نتخلص منه. الذباب هو واحد من أشكال الحشرات الذي ينتسب إلى الفصيلة الذبابية والتي تنتمي إلى ذوات الجناحين، يبقى العديد منه في عالمنا الذي نعيشه ولكننا لا نشاهد في بيوتنا وشوارعنا إلا عشرة أشكال لاغير من الذباب الذي يمكن أن يصل عدده إلى ما يزيد عن مئة ألف ذبابة، ولكن وجود الأعداد العظيمة من الذباب الذي نشاهده يرجع إلى عدد البيض الذي تضعه أنثى الذباب، فيعتقد العلماء أن أنثى الذباب تبيض ما يبلغ إلى مائة بيضة وتفضل أن تقوم ببيضها نحو الغذاء التالف وأماكن إلقاء القمامة سواء كانت في البيت أو الشارع، وعندما يفقس ذلك البيض فإنه يسمى يرقات، تفتقر إلى أسبوعين ليكتمل نموها وتصبح ذبابة مكتملة على الشكل الذي نشاهده في منازلنا وشوارعنا.

  8. The use of internal cabinets ensures that you get additional storage space. In other words, if you have more items to store and you don't have enough space, the cabinet / drawer surface can ensure that additional items find a place in the bathroom.

  10. The reasons for the emergence of house insects
    The presence of many branches of trees, shrubs and woods that provide shelter for pests and insects. The presence of some cracks and gaps in windows and doors that contribute to the entry of insects into the house. Not to insulate or seal the cracks, gaps and openings outside homes using copper net, coarse wool, or metal sheets.

    While we may be biased, the AngelorDesign web page is badass. Our site is full of dapper style people just like you have created with our bracelets for men. It's a great way to see how different pair with different wrist watches and ensembles styles of men's bracelets.

    PICK A COLOR

    Learning how to style bracelets for men is as simple as picking one color and building off of it. Again, you'll exactly know how this works if you follow our website. If you already have a wristwatch, check out the color of the face. If it's silver, shop men's bracelets that have silver in them as opposed to gold; if the watch face is colored, find some men's bracelets that have the same tone. Then, combine it together for an effortless masterpiece.

    GET A WRISTWATCH

    If you don't have a luxury wristwatch, now is the time to get one. Not only are they incredibly practical, but they'll enhance your dapper wardrobe within seconds - pun intended. While you can layer your wrist with all kinds of men's bracelets, adding a wristwatch will separate the styles and add dimension into the look.

  13. Concrete barrier blocks or jersey barriers are a simple and effective way to secure your empty premises against unwelcome visits from trespassers, vandals, fly tippers and travellers. Concrete security barriers may be placed across the access to a property, or around the perimeter to block vehicular access. We provide concrete sleepers in either 1.5m, 2.5m or 3m lengths, which can be bolted together with our state of the art interlocking system to create a virtually impenetrable concrete barrier.

    Temporary concrete road barriers are a useful tool in traffic management, to safely control traffic flows. Concrete safety barriers are a common sight in car parks, used to define entry and exit lanes and to protect traffic from straying into oncoming lanes. Concrete road barriers may be used to secure building sites and road works, protecting both the passing public and workforce within.

    The integral properties of concrete barricades make them the safety barrier of choice in a number of scenarios. The immense weight of a concrete step barrier can be used in earth retention to safely prevent landslides. Concrete safety barriers can provide a solid barrier around water hazards or other dangerous areas.

    As concrete barrier suppliers, SafeSite Facilities are able to deploy concrete security blocks in a matter of hours, to ensure your site remains safe and protected. Our concrete barriers may be personalised with your company logo to maintain a strong presence, or enhanced with the addition of anti climb fencing for additional security.
