Back from the bunny trail...
So here are my summer reads thus far.
Half Baked isn't even published yet, I don't think. My go to gal, Melissa, gave it to me an advanced copy of it and said to read it. Anyone else have that faithful person who you'll read anything they say and then love it too? (I have a person like that for music, Krissy, and movies, My Uncle Paddy, too. Having those folks for recommendations is AWESOME!)
A few are just for review, like Parenting you Internationally Adopted Child. (A MUST for adoptive parents IMO.) and the Asian Grocery Book is fun to go through again too.
I already finished Sh*t My Dad Says. Not recommending it. I guess I thought is would be funnier than it was. You can only drop the S bomb so many times before you stop thinking it's amusing. I don't know what I was thinking.
I know I'll get through the new Mitch Albom book quickly. Not sure how good it will be, but I couldn't pass up a new Albom for $1 at a yard sale.
That really only leaves 4 books, one of which I've already started.
So I'm please looking for some suggestions to add a couple more to my pile.
FYI-books are like movies to me. I have VERY little time for either, so I really only like to read ones that are good. Nothing too heavy, please. But it has to be well written. I adore historical fiction, but I'm not bound to it. Funny is always good, and I love authors that can weave humor into a good story. Good non-fiction is good too.
Some of my favorites from the past include-
- The whole Phillipa Gregory series of The Other Boleyn Girl
- The Art of Racing in the Rain
- The Time Traveler's Wife
- Daughter of Fortune
- The whole Voice in the Wind series by Francine Rivers
- The Help
- Water For Elephants (Haven't seen it, but quite mad they made a movie out of it. That usually ruins it for me)
- Snow Flower and the Secret Fan
- The Poisonwood Bible
