Looking for a good book

I just finished "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood" after watching the commercials about the upcoming movie.

I very much liked the book. I generally just plow right through a book, but this one, even though it's not long at all, I took my time. I'm glad--helped to absorb some of it a little better.

Unnatural Exposure

Just finished reading this book by Patricia Cromwell. If you like an exciting mystery read, then this is a great one.

I'm almost finished reading 2nd Chance by James Patterson and this is another exciting mystery. I can hardly put this one down.

Is that the smallpox one?

I thought it was a bit too creepy for me!

Yes, that's the one. Guess I'm a little creepy too because I liked it.

I just finished reading "Good in Bed" by Jennifer Weiner and it isn't what you think~it's a wonderful book though, I was done with it in 2 days, which is a record for me these days!

Looking for a good book

I just read "The Worst Day of My Life So Far" by M.A. Harper. Its about a middle aged woman making good on a promise to her dying father's request to take care of her mother who has Alzheimer's.

The book cover says it all " A poignant, often hilarious story of one woman's journey towards self discovery and confidence, this is a timely tale that shows there are no dead ends in life--only longer road."

I loved it.

Have you read "The Notebook" by Nicholas Sparks. It is very clever the way it is written.

Looking for a good book

Kate Chopin's The Awakening is a wonderful book & it's a quick read. Her short stories are good, too.

Someone just gave me a copy of Julia Alvarez In The Time of the Butterflies and I have another of her books, as yet unread, that came very highly recommended. Something like How the Garcia Girls Lost their Accents .

Jane Austen novels are fun and light.
Emma, Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility...

One thing that can really be fun is an old literature textbook. I know, that sounds DULL, but really, it's great because there's TONS to choose from. Short stories , plays, poetry by authors both classic & current.

Really, give it a try. You'll be surprised what you find in there. Some great stuff.

Light, humorous mysteries that are good include the Lord Peter Whimsey series by Dorothy Sayers. These go in order & I suppose it's best to follow, but not necessary. The first of these I read was a collection of shorts. Read it at the beach, which sure sounds good about now, with these cold winds a blowin' around here!

Also, any Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple by Agatha Christie will be fun.

And for me, last but certainly not least, a good day includes a large stack of wonderful cookbooks from the library. I almost never make anything from them but look at them constantly.

We have a good library here & DH & I go & bring home STACKS of books, then linger over them at home. It feels like Christmas!

Looking for a good book

Wow - it's been a while since I posted here (or started the thread! LOL!)

I have since read:
The Red Tent (Dimante - LOVED IT)
The Lovely Bones (Sebold - Also loved it)
The Blind Assassin (Atwood - couldn't get through it)
The Rescue (Sparks...couldn't do it)
The Nanny Diaries (?? - cute)
Confessions of a Shopaholic (?? - very good)
Girls Poker Night (Davis - good)
Slammerkin (Donaghue - good, but the end is hard to get through)
The Runaway Quilt (Elm Creek Quilt Novel - VERY good)
The Healing Quilt (Snelling - good, but religious)
Daisy May and the Miracle Man (Flagg - good)


my word - I know there are more but I can't remember them off the top of my head.

HAPPY READING!

Xena --


Loved the Awakening, didja know it was banned in a number of places in it's day due to the adultery and miscegenation? For I know, it might still be taken off the shelves of some libraries, even now.

I also love Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane, let us not forget Harriet! My favorite Wimsey short is the one with his nephew's old book with the map in it.
