SFL #9 Read 3 books

Monday, July 29, 2013


Summers used to be spent reading for hours at the beach, but since having Carter, reading (aside from baby help books) has not happened.  So I put this on my Summer Fun List so that I'd have to do it!
Here are the books I read so far this summer and a little about each:
I started following Kelle's blog (enjoying the small things) last year.  It was one of those blogs that brought me to tears and intrigued me so much that I read it for hours.  Her pictures are awesome and although I felt like I knew her story from her blog, it was still interesting to read her whole emotional account of being a mom and the unexpected turn when having her daughter born with Down Syndrome.  
I've read so many Jodi books and it's always a safe choice if you're at a loss for what to read.  (Nineteen Minutes, My Sister's Keeper are a few favorites)  So I picked this one off the shelf since I hadn't read it yet.  The big topics were infertility, gay marriage, divorce, and alcoholism amongst many others (as Jodi books always have lots of big topics).  I wouldn't say this is one of my favorite Jodi books, but it was entertaining.   
I've read all of her books and they're always quick reads.  This doesn't disappoint!  Teenage pregnancy and adoption are the main topics.  I'd recommend this for a good beach read, for sure!
I may have time for one or two more non-school books this summer.  Have your read any good books? 
 I'd love some book recommendations!
Here's the rest of my Summer Fun List.
