I am reading like crazy!

It's been a while since I posted about reading, and that's because I have been reading SO much I've been too busy to talk about it!

Over the past weeks alone I have read the following books:

* Friday Night Knitting Club, by Kate Jacobs

* Certain Girls, by Jennifer Weiner

* Firefly Lane, by Kristen Hannah

* The Senator's Wife, by Sue Miller

* Until the Real Thing Comes Along, by Elizabeth Berg

* The Three Willows, by Ann Brasheres
* The Summer Kitchen, by Lisa Wingate

I don't know what happened to me, but I have been tearing through books like you wouldn't believe! I think it's because my daughter has been playing a lot more by herself, and so she's content and contained, and I can sit on the couch in the same room and read a little bit. It's a nice change, since usually I have her hanging off of me and trying to read my book with me, which obviously doesn't always work.

Anyway, I hope you're all getting some summer reading done, as well. It's nice to get through some beach reads, even if you're not remotely close to the beach! So, happy reading to all of you. As for me, I'm onto my next one, or two, or three ... you get the picture!


  1. Since Emily's been visiting with Grandma and Papock this week, I've been able to get a little caught up with my reading too. How is Friday Night Knitting Club? That looks interesting!

  2. Friday Night Knitting Club was a great book, but it definitely had a twist that bothered me, so I'm not sure if I'll read the sequel, although I think I'll eventually cave and want to know what everyone is up to several years down the line (I think that is how it was written!) Enjoy your reading R&R time!

  3. I've been bitten by the reading bug, too, especially since our library got in some great new books. I'd like to know how you liked the Senator's Wife and The Summer Kitchen. Have you read Little Earthquakes by Weiner? That's a good one too. :)

  4. Julie, I have read Little Earthquakes and loved it. I think the only one I have not read by her is her latest, which I'll get when it is out in paperback!

    I enjoyed The Senator's Wife, but there were some parts that disappointed me. More-so some characters that ultimately both, frustrated and disappointed. But it was still a good read.

    The Summer Kitchen started off kind of slowly, but eventually hit its' stride and was easy to get through, to the point where I couldn't go to bed with about 30 pages to go.

    Hope you decide to pick them up, and enjoy!
