These is My Words

I'm totally opposite of you here, a weird duck I am. I can't get enough of non-fiction. ;) (Don't like stuff that is too heavy, though.)

Reading Annette Lyon's recent novel and enjoying that. I haven't enjoyed a novel for a while! Good for me. It's supposedly why I do book group but have the time those books are the ones I don't crack open. :)

BTW, the italicized phrase was a title of one of the best fiction books I have ever read.

Jessica Day George, mostly YA, but really good. James Dashner, Brandon Mull. All these are LDS authors that publish nationally.

Brandon Mull. YES! (He's another one of the rare few I have read. hehe)

I'm not crazy about the Fablehaven books, but I'm not into fantasy much.
I did just read a Jessica Day George book, like readerMom suggested. I enjoyed it. It was "Princess at the Midnight Ball" and was a retelling of the 12 Dancing Princessed.

I read a lot of fiction. I felt the same way as you about 3 Cups of Tea. It took me F-O-R-E-V-E-R. The recent books that I've loved have been "The Chosen Ones" by Carol Lynch Williams, "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett, "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet" by Jamie Ford. Right now I'm reading "Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt." I don't remember who it's by, but I've really enjoyed it so far.

I could go on and on. Try "The Wednesday Wars" by Gary Schmidt too. Good luck finding something to get lost in!

Oh, and "These Is My Words" is really good. So is the rest of the series, but they aren't as good as the first. If you've ever read Sandra Dallas' "Diary of Mattie Spencer" (really good too), they are similar.

I really liked Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt.

=)

Thanks for all the book recommendations! I'll take the list to the library. Rach is anxious to go again, she wants to start reading Lord of the Rings now :)

Loved These Is My Words and The Help!
