Allyn and I are both book worms. I’m kind of surprised we haven’t already posted something about books and/or reading. The one thing I was most looking forward to during vacation was the ability to sit for hours and read.
Pre-trip I ordered a ton of books from my Amazon Wish List. I figured 6 was a good round number. I managed to finish 4 and started in on 5, which wasn’t too bad for me.
Here’s what I read:
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
It has been on my to-read list for the last couple of years. With the movie being out, I was finally spurred on to read it. I’m glad I did. It was one of those books where I was totally immersed in the time period, the place, and the characters.
The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
A well written love story featuring a young girl, a mourning mother, and an old man. I’d recommend this to anyone, including husbands.
The Brontes went to Woothworths by Rachel Ferguson
A whimsical story of three sisters. This lighty and frothy novel is the perfect beach read. Allyn, you need to read this if you haven’t already. It reminds me a good deal of our high school adventures.
Cooking for Mr. Latte: A Food Lover’s Courtship, with Recipes by Amanda Hesser
A sweet memoir of courtship and food, packed with delicious recipes. It made me swear to start throwing more dinner parties.
