The Book Thief

Speaking of good books, I've been meaning to post about this one for a while now. Lisa asked me in December if I had read this, and I said yes, thinking I had. I don't know what book I was thinking of at the time, but this wasn't it. So, since I'd said I already read it, and that she could borrow it, I had to go get a copy. Wow. I was not disappointed! Death, in this book, is something between "Meet Joe Black" (without the handsome) and The Wishlist (another great book). Such a completely different view of the Holocaust, not at all what you'd expect. I highly recommend this book. In fact, give it to your kids, too.

Eve's Daughters

Marcy inspired me to make a post about a book I'm finishing:

Its a great story following the lives of four generations of mothers. It tells the truth and hardships about falling in love, married life, life with kids, and after. I really enjoy this book and recommend it to all readers in different situations in life. I haven't finished it yet, so I don't know the big "secret" that is the background during the entire book.

Let me know if any of you read it and what your thoughts are. There is some things I would like to discuss about it.


These Is My Words

I recently reread These Is My Words and it meant more to me this second time. I especially think that Jimmy sounds like my first husband in a lot of ways, and I'm hoping there's a Jack in my (and Laurel's) future (and I hope the rest of you have a Jack to snuggle up to every night!). Anyway, my older sis fought against reading it for a long time, but she finally did this past week and posted this review, if you're interested.

I'm so glad you introduced it to us Lisa!

the sisterhood grows

I just picked it up yesterday, the latest by Ann Brashares, 3 Willows. I'm only a couple chapters in, but it's good. Different, younger set of girls, same location, and they idolize the original sisterhood. First one to email me gets to have it next.
