So even though I haven't had a lot of time to truly sit down and read, I've been pretending that I have all of the time in the world. I've bought 8 books in the last couple of weeks. I guess I am just lining up my reading list so that I will be prepared for when we leave for the beach for 10 glorious days! :) My book club is currently reading Francine Rivers' Leota's Garden. I'm only about 90 pages into it and I think it's going to be good.
Anyway, I've bought these books this last month so let me know if you have read/heard anything about them:
-An American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld
-Breaking Dawn (no I haven't read it yet, but am totally caught up with the others!)
-Beach Music by Pat Conroy
-Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
-True Colors by Kristin Hannah
-A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers
-An Echo in the Darkness by Francine Rivers
-As Sure as the Dawn by Francine Rivers

I also bought Eat Pray Love thinking that I was going to read it before the movie came out, but I don't quite think that is going to happen.

Have you read anything lately that is worth picking up?

Karen Kingsbury's books! I just finished Take 1, Take 2, Take 3, and Take 4! They were wonderful and she's getting ready to start a new series all about Bailey Flanigan! Woohoo!

Breaking Dawn is great, of course. And I just finished Beach Music. It was tough for me to get into but once you get a few chapters in, you will get sucked in. I also just finished the Lace Reader which was really good too. And try East of Asia -- not really a beach kind of book but one of my favorites this year!
