Book Club

I LOVE BOOKS!  Yep, I'm a bonafied book worm, and I happily admit it!  I love to sit with a good book, escape reality for a little while, and peek into other people's/characters lives:)  Especially in the the pool...with pink lemonade...or better yet, at the beach, getting a tan, with my toes in the sand!

I was sooooo sad tonight when I saw my friend Jenny's number on my cell phone and quickly realized she was at book club and I was not...I completely forgot:(  I was already in my pajamas and folding laundry so just jumping in the car and racing up there was not in the cards for me tonight;(

In honor of my Book Club, here are some of the books we've read the last few months and just for good measure I'll throw a couple of others in that I am personally reading myself!  In case you are getting your summer reading list going...ENJOY!

 This was our first book, a murder mystery - a great read, great mystery if you are "in" to that sort of thing, but a little sad.

 LOVED this book - laughed, cried, can't wait for the movie!!!  All about rich southern women and their maids (what they REALLY think)...Everyone should read this book!

 Totally fun read...Pioneer Woman's (do you know her blog yet?  You should!!!) love story with her Marlboro Man cowboy - laughed out loud reading this one - PURE ENJOYMENT, makes this city girl wanna spend some days in the country!  I hear a movie might be in the works for this one too???

 This is one I am reading on my own - a christian book that MOPS sent out this year to all MOPS members - makes me want to clean, decorate, and make my house all warm and cozy:)

 Great book, doing this with the women in my small group at church, highly recommend, especially if God still has some things to work out in you - which should be all of us right?:)

And last but not least...this is our next book club read, don't know much about it but... gonna see the movie when I'm done too, LOVE Reese Witherspoon!

Have any of you read any of these, what did you think?  What's on your Summer Reading List this year?????  Any recommendations?

Happy Reading!

We missed you at the last meeting. Looking forward to seeing you at the next one. Still waiting for my copy of Water for Elephants to arrive. Hopefully I won't have to stay up all night reading when it gets here.

I just finished Water for Elephants and I really liked it. It was kinda sad, but I guess every book has a sad element. Looking forward to seeing you at the next meeting!
