Remember that Jamie Foxx song, “Blame it on the Alcohol”? Well that is what I blame my surge in reading on this Summer, the lack of alcohol in my life. I don’t have happy hour anymore so I get in bed with my full wits about me ready to read. Plus I get in bed super early so I have more time to read now too (ah the joys of pregnancy). I have been powering through like a book a week. Such a book worm, I know. I have read some really great books though and wanted to share. Here is what I plowed through:
BEBE DAY BY DAY– I really liked the first book by Pamela Druckerman, Bringing up Bebe, so I checked this one out at the library. It is a super short read just 100 little blurbs and tips on French parenting. Everything in it made so much sense to me. I mean seriously the French have this parenting thing down way better than us.
ROB LOWE STORIES I ONLY TELL MY FRIENDS– I have always loved Rob Lowe but my love for him grew even more after he was on Brothers and Sisters- why was that show canceled again?? This was a juicy autobiography about his life in Hollywood and growing up, it made me like him even more.
WHISKEY BEACH– I am a huge Nora Roberts fan I always love all her books. This one has it all from mystery to romance.
GUILTY WIVES CLUB– My mom recommended this book to me and I read in 3 days, it was so good. It is about a group of 4 women arrested in Monaco and put in jail for a crime they did not commit. James Patterson books are always such quick easy reads
PROOF OF HEAVEN– I have wanted to read this book for a long time and I finally decided to read it after my grandfather died. I no doubt believe in Heaven but it is so interesting to me to read others accounts of near death experience’s. Eben’s story is amazing, he was a neurosurgeon who was more scientific than religious until he contracted meningitis and was in a coma for 7 days. It is a miracle he survived. While in his coma he visits Heaven and this is his story of his coma, near death experience and life after.
ENGAGEMENTS– I kept reading write ups for this book in all my fashion magazines. It was such a compelling story following 5 people around thru their lives. Each person had a different story relating to marriage, adultery, divorce, or the decision not to be married. I loved that the chapters switched from one persons perspective to another. I could not put this book down. Interesting views on marriage and what it means to others.
REVENGE WEARS PRADA– I loved this sequel as much as the original. Highly recommend if you loved The Devil Wears Prada. Such a fun read filled with fun fashions and life in the magazine world.
Now I need to know what to read next, please share some great book recommendations!
