Mary | 59 comments Book 39, 40 & 41- I included 2 books as 1 count. They were all quick reads and only about 180-200+ pages each. Have a whole box of Harlequin that were given to me.
Funny how Harlequin changed. They were more seduction talk and now they are more descriptive sex.(lol)
But still fun to read.

Mary | 59 comments
I have started to read a few books on my daughters AR reading list. Sarah Dessen does write an excellent book. She cuts to the chase and tells the story from the girls view point. These books are excellent for young adults.


message 37: by Mary (new)

Mary | 59 comments The Next thing on my List.....Jill Smolonski

This book was a little flaky. But I did enjoy it.



message 38: by Mary (new)

Mary | 59 comments Have a list of books to read a page long......I better get busy


message 39: by Mary (new)

Mary | 59 comments 20 books and counting..........


message 40: by Mary (new)

Mary | 59 comments I just read FIREFLY LANE. This is an EXCELLENT book for everyone who has had a best friend. It is so weird to see myself in the book, from the music, what they wore to the hellbent friendship that last throughout time.

Absolutely a great book! I loved it so much, that I gave it to my mom to read because that's her type of book. Anyone who reads it will not be disappointed...but prepared to shed some tears!

I felt this way about Alice Hoffman's "Local Girls". It was like she had channeled my best friend & I and then changed the names to protect the innocent. Thanks for the recommendation.


message 43: by Mary (new)

Mary | 59 comments Up to 25 books.......1/4 of the way there


message 44: by Mary (new)

Mary | 59 comments I have taken Donna's advice and found "Local Girls" I plan this as my next read. But in the mean time I have finished "The weight of Silence" by Heather Gudenkauf.
I did like this book, but the jumping of people (chapters) retelling the story did get a little confusing. But it was an excellent story.

Maybe I shouldn't have mentioned how much this parallels the life of my BFF and I......


message 46: by Mary (new)

Mary | 59 comments funny how we see ourselves in book!


message 47: by Mary (new)

Mary | 59 comments I just finished "The history of Lucy's Love life in 10 1/2 chapters" This book was kinda strange. She wants a good lover so she goes back in time to try on different "LOVERS".....and realizes that her current lover, may not be so flashy, but his Heart is real!


message 48: by Mary (new)

Mary | 59 comments Istill need to real Local girls, but I wanted to finish off 2 other books that needed to be returned to the library. I real liked RAINWATER by Sandra Brown. I was so so completely different then her other books.


message 49: by Mary (new)

Mary | 59 comments Taking a small break over Easter, family is here


message 50: by Mary (last edited Apr 15, 2010 06:05AM) (new)
