Haven't done a book post for a while, so here goes. (oh, by the way, update on my kidney infection here.)
I've read quite a few books in the last couple months. Including my favorite book of ALL TIME, Ender's Game. I've read it like 50 times.
I finally got around to reading "The Lost Symbol". It was entertaining, thought provoking with a fantastic villain. Really creepy.
Spent a quiet Saturday reading "A Song for my Mother", and while predicable and short, it is was a nice campy read. Something for the front porch and some lemonade.
The Gemma Doyle Trilogy is good if you are looking for a more crack-literature read. The third one is the best by far. All 800+ pages of it!
I'll be reviewing the next Karen White novel in May.
My top picks for the last couple months:
A really lovely book about making the daily rituals already in place in your family more binding and meaningful. Anyone with any kind of family should read this book, especially ones with children.
Oh man, I love this book. I am mad at myself for really never understanding what made Lincoln such a powerful leader. It makes me want to move back to the South and visit all the Civil War sites I never took the time to see.
HA! This book is so awesome! Lydia got it for Christmas and besides the BOB Books (which are golden) it is Lydia's favorite book to read. And she doesn't even know it's hilarious. She just thinks there is this vampire hanging out with Dick and Jane. No biggie.
She is reading so much by herself! She is going to totally rock Kindergarden.
And now for a little giveaway. I really really need to restock my library. I feel totally off without a good book. I don't think I have read a novel I really loved since "The Help". Comment on this post with the name of your favorite book you've read in the last couple years. I'll randomly draw a name and send you a pair of homemade earrings in any color you choose. I've gotten back into jewelry making...since I don't have any good books to read!
