These are my two favorite series of books so far. At least the two that I have multiple books from. They are the Mysterious Benedict Society series, by Trenton Lee Stewart and the Mother-Daughter Book Club series by Heather Vogel Frederick. The Benedict books are basically mysteries. They're very enjoyable, plus they're not the kind you can just sit down and read in twenty minutes. They come highly recommended. By me. :) The Book Club series is kind of a candy book series. That means that there's not really anything super memorable about them. I like them because the characters are pretty relatable, and I can get my 'candy' reading without devouring the entire book right away. They actually take me almost an entire day. I'm actually missing one of the books, because they didn't have it at the bookstore when I had my last book shopping spree. They're good for me because the girls are going through middle and high school, starting in sixth grade, and I first started reading them in sixth grade. The problem is making them last that long! :)
This is my CD collection. As you can see, I need to work on expanding that a little. Two of the three CDs are Christmas music. The third is one of the 5 Browns' CDs. They're a group of siblings who are all really talented pianists, and they play songs together. Their CDs usually have one or two with all five of them, a couple of solos, and duets, trios, and quartets. It's fun to listen to because my brother and I like to play duets together on the piano.
So there's my entire library! Usually I keep it on my bedside table, so if I want to read a new book or change the CD, I can just reach back and grab one. And yes, this is my artistic layout for photos only. Normally they get kept in stacks and containers.
Here's a picture of what my bedside table usually looks like. You can see my library, along with my small collection of shells, necklaces, and nail polish. There's also my Bible and my duct tape wallet, courtesy of my little sister. Oh, and pay no attention to the Snickers wrapper. That's not mine. :) It was probably Frederick, the imaginary homeless man who lives in our dishwasher. :)
Anyway, have a great day and don't forget that there's no better combination than this:
Gray day + Good book + Quiet music + Chocolate = :D
