A good read


You know the second you read the first page of a book and you know it's going to be great? Dennen and I both devoured this book as of late. My mom recommended that we read it and I'm so happy she did. It's the kind of book that makes you want to be a better person. It's quite funny as well. The book is about African American maids in Mississippi. So good. Read it. You'll be happy you did. Any recommendations of any good books to read now that I'm finished with this one?

I loved this book and I heard there is a movie in production?? We've read some good books for Book Club--I'll have to think of some and send them to you.

Thanks for the recommendation I'll have to check this out. I love to read. Ben and I just finished The Walk, by: Richard Paul Evans. We'd give it an A on how much we liked it.

You are probably the 20th person to recommend this book to me in the last month...I guess it's time to go get it! I'm excited, I need a new book to read. The last book I read was Hattie Big Sky. It's a Newberry Honor book and a very easy read (I think it's for teenage age) but it was super good, I loved it. So if you want a fairly fast and easy, but good read, check it out!

That is so funny, I just started it yesterday. I'll have to let you know what I think when I'm done. Have you ever read The Glass Castle? I just finished that. It was really good, kinda strong language but I loved it.

I've been wanting to read this book! Hopefully I'll get to it soon! I just read My Sister's Keeper. It was WAY good but the language was not good. My Mom "edited" her copy of it with a sharpie so I read that one. I would recommend it.
