Loving Books...

The only thing I really like about summer is the reruns on tv. I'm not missing out on much if I decide not to turn my television on for a few days. That's not to say I'm not recording my guilty pleasures like Jon & Kate or The Real Housewives of NJ, but for the most part, summertime means reading a book or two a week. The best time of the day is when the kids are tucked in bed and I get to lay down and read in the peaceful space that is my bedroom.

One book that I've been anxious to read is called Cartwheels In A Sari by Jayanti Tamm. This novel looks compelling, it received great reviews and its at the top of my pile to be read this summer.

I got a sneak peek of Mating Rituals of the North American WASP before it came out a few months ago. I enjoyed it, didn't want it to end, then spent a few days wondering if I could somehow turn the novel into a screenplay. Perfect summer book- its light, funny, well written, and I highly recommend it. Lauren Lipton is plain awesome.


I read this in record time. I didn't know anything about The Help when I checked it out of my library. I thought it was about an English maid, to be honest with you. I had no idea it was about the deep south during the 1960's. Run and get this one today. Kathryn Stockett is a great new author to watch.

Still Alice is about early onset Alzheimers. Really happy subject, right? But the novel is so well written, emotional and dramatic that it needs to be on your summer reading list. It is a quick read that will leave you in tears. Sorry, but it will.
