Book Club

I have a whole month with no school work! QUICK! Give me a book recommendation, and make it fast! What have you read lately that you LOVED? (No Twilight, please. I just can't get into them...) ;) What should I read that you couldn't put down?

Besides Twilight, I have really gotten in to The Work and The Glory. I have only read the first 3 books but have really enjoyed them. Umm

I recently went to an "author lecture" by Sara Gruen about her recent book, Water for Elephants. I had not read the book at the time but very much enjoyed her lecture and decided that I HAD to read this book! - Sara was so interesting and the story of how she wrote the book was amazing! My husband bought it for me for my birthday and I can't wait to read it!!

Austenland by Shannon Hale, cute story, super easy read. Children of the Promise series. My blog has a bookshelf of others I have read recently. Good Luck.

Kam, Kam, Kam.. You can't get into Twilight? These are the first books that I've read in a long time. So, I am no help!!!

Eat, Pray, Love - wonderful book about finding yourself.

The Mercy Rule by...Perri someone? Anyway, it makes you love quirky little boys but isn't so cutesy you're embarrassed to be seen with it at Starbucks.
It's a delicate balance.

The Shack by William Paul Young. Everyone who reads it goes nuts over it. Some people cry as they read it though. Just a forwarning. :0)

Hi Kamee!

You don't know me, but you know my family & you photographed my Dad (Dale) & his new wife Anne's wedding. Awesome job by the way!
My book club here in MO will be reading "The Grand Sophy" in January...it comes highly recommended, also we read (and all LOVED) "Quiet Strength" by Tony Dungy (don't worry, it's not a "football book"...). Good Luck & post what you do end up with, I'm always looking for a good read too!

"The Red Tent" by Anita Diamant.......Best.Book.Ever.

I'm in a book club that meets monthly, and I've had the pleasure of reading "Water for Elephants", "Eat Pray Love", and "The Red Tent". You really can't go wrong with any of those books. The "Red Tent" was probably my favorite.

This month, we are reading, "The Reader". I haven't started it yet.

Got a few books for Christmas. Already finished Here's The Story by Maureen McCormick (Marcia on the Brady Bunch. A must-read if you are a fan of the show.) Also am reading Factory Girls about women in southern China by Leslie Chang. Will soon be reading So Sexy So Soon: The New Sexualized Childhood and What Parents Can Do About It.

Happy Reading.

Kam,

I loved "Water for Elephants", "Red Tent" and am currently reading "Eat, Pray, Love". I have "Marley and Me" ready to read next. The "Thirteenth Tale" is also good. Hope you find a good book to read and have a good New Year.

Interested in a little non-fiction? I strongly recommend Michael Pollan's Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food. He is not an alarmist (a la Fast Food Nation), but presents thoughtful evidence about our food and how we decide what to eat. You will never think about food - or eat it! - the same way again. Whatever you decide to read, enjoy your break. You deserve it!

Kam- I spotted a very mischievous looking little fellow over at www.jessicaclaire.net could that be your little "G" man? So cute! Can't wait to see the rest.

Kam--I stumbled across your blog (and briefly met you) through Becca M. in CO. Your photos are lovely.

I MUST recommend The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak. An unusual narrator (Death), and a unique spin on the unfolding of WWII from a German girl's perspective make this a superb read. I also thoroughy enjoyed The Time Traveler's Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger. It is heartbreaking, well-written, and just plain beautiful. Happy break, and happy reading.

Eat Cake is a good, fun read. Not too deep. Also, These Is My Words is one of my all time Faves. And then there is Cry the Beloved Country and The Poisonwood Bible. Hope that helps. Love you!
