Emily | 74 comments Congrats! How far along are you? I have a four-month-old at home. It's been as wonderful as it has been challenging! Is this your first? Silas is mine. Anyhow, I have to tell you to visit my website: http://www.booknboob.com I've just started this site for reading mamas. If you have the time, check it out. Good luck with your pregnancy and with the 50 books! Emily

11. The Other Woman by Jane Green

Andrea | 33 comments 12. The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillipa Gregory.

I finally finished this one (well, I finally finished the Humanities class that forced me to hide all of my books) and I loved it. I didn't know much about the time, and I know it's mostly fiction, but it was a juicy read.

Andrea | 33 comments 13. A Thousand Splendid Suns

I thought this book was great. It really showed how hard it was/is to be a woman over there.

Andrea | 33 comments 14. The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth by Hence Goer

Andrea | 33 comments 15. Bookends by Jane Green

I liked this book, but I pretty much like all of her books. I needed a lighter book after A Thousand Splendid Suns and this ended up being a little sadder than I was expecting but it was still good.

Andrea | 33 comments 16. Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz

This was a pretty interesting book. I usually don't read Koontz but since several people in this group liked it, I thought I would give it a try. It was gory at times, but the story was enough to keep me turning the pages. Next time I'm in the mood for gore I'll read the second book.

Andrea | 33 comments 17. Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

I thought this book was very interesting. It's funny that through this group I'm finding a lot of interesting YA books that I would never have read. I found the concept of this book great, and I'm going to the library tomorrow to get the next one!

Andrea | 33 comments 18. Suzannes Diary For Nicholas by James Patterson

This is my go-to book when I need a good cry, which was this weekend. I blame the pregnancy hormones.....

Andrea | 33 comments 19. My Sweet Audrina by V.C. Andrews

Someone on here was talking about V.C. Andrews and it got me in the mood to read her books again. I haven't read anything by her in a long time...it's like returning to an old friend for a chat!

Andrea | 33 comments 20. Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

I didn't think it was as good as the first one, but still a good read!


message 16: by Andrea (new)

Andrea | 33 comments 21. Shopaholic and Baby by Sophie Kinsella

Just like the other 3. Nice, easy read.


message 17: by Andrea (new)

Andrea | 33 comments 22. The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella

Another light, and easy read. I think I'm just trying to avoid reading Blindness....it seems really heavy and I don't know if I can get into it right now!

Andrea | 33 comments 23. Flowers in the Attic by VC Andrews

This is a re-read for me, I wanted to read the rest of the series so I needed to refresh my memory!


message 19: by Andrea (new)

Andrea | 33 comments 24. Petals on the Wind by VC Andrews


message 20: by Andrea (new)

Andrea | 33 comments 25. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

I avoided this book for a long time because vampires really don't do anything for me, but since everyone seems to be reading it, I thought I would give it a try. Lets just say......I'm getting the next book tomorrow! I couldn't put it down!

Andrea | 33 comments 26. New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

Off to read the next one.....

Andrea | 33 comments 27. Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

Now I've got to sit for 2 months until the next one comes out....I should have read slower!

Andrea | 33 comments 26. Marley and Me

Andrea | 33 comments 27. In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner

Pretty good book, now I can finally watch the movie.


message 25: by Andrea (new)

Andrea | 33 comments 28. Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey

Some good tips, but I probably won't do many of them....


message 26: by Andrea (new)

Andrea | 33 comments 29. Bringing Down the House by Ben Mezrich

This is the book 21 was based off of...another case of where the book is WAY better than the movie. I'm glad I read it first!

30. See Jane Date by Melissa Senate
