Books, Books, BOOKS!!

After my birthday Chuck and I started our Vacation!! And what have I done on our vacation so far? I've read three books!! Yes three books in 3 days!! I was so excited! Granted we were camping and not doing anything else but it was amazing to sit out on a swing on a porch with the dogs outside and my honey working on his sudoku, and reading a book, or two or three :)

The first one I read was "Baby Proof" by Emily Giffin!! And I've given this girl many chances now, three to be exact and I have to say that I'm not overly impressed by her, but I have now liked 2 out of the 3!! I'm not sure why I liked Baby Proof so much but I found it to be realistic (to a certain extent) and I really did like the main character overall. She knows what she wants but she learns a lot about her. I would recommend it but only if you have ever had that doubt of wanting children of your own. Those born with the dream to always become a mother, stay away, you'll hate her! My grade for this one Miss Emily Giffen....a B+!


The next book I read was not on my book list...I know shame on me! But after watching the movie I had to read the book! I read "The Lovely Bones" by Alice Sebold. My advice watch the movie then read the book. I liked the movie but had I read the book first I would have HATED the movie!! This book is amazing, a little out there, but if you don't have super strong beliefs about what happens when you die, please read. Its sad and if you are a parent with a child be prepared. I give this book an A++!! Thanks Alice!

Will have to check out Baby Proof because the character sounds like me. I've never been able to get in to any of her books though.

A couple books to add to my reading list. I always like to read the book before I watch the movie. I like to have my own characters in my mind not actors. And yes I usually like the book more than the movie,
