Book Worm

Here's a list of the books I've read in the last few years. I'll highlight the ones that I thought were especially good reads if you're looking for a new book. (Yes, I'm a sucker for Nicholas Sparks books.) Oh, and I really liked the #1 Ladies Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith, but I have to say that after the third or fourth one they all kind of read the same to me. Books that I wouldn't recommend on my list are Smashed and The Memory Keepers Daughter.

    I've read a lot of the same books you have. And I saw that you listed Twilight - did you read New Moon & Eclipse yet? I love those! And I just started the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency today actually.

  3. Hey! Thanks for the quiz! I AM WONDER WOMAN--YES! I'm so excited you got published! I can't wait to read the article! And thanks for the book list--I can't wait to get started on it!

  4. Thanks for the book list!! You are awesome! We must be kindred spirits because you had a LOT of them on your list that I love as well! Good recommendations too! love ya

  5. Ok Marie,
    You need to share with me your secret of finding time to read! Reading the Book of Mormon for 15 min/day is all I find time for. How and when do you do it???-wendy

  6. You are too cute!! It's too bad that we didn't get to hang out more in college. Seems like we both like the same kind of stuff. I love reading too. It's so relaxing for me. The only time I get to read now is when I'm up at 2 am feeding Spencer. But it is worth it!
