Reading List

Thought I would share my what I've been reading/what's on my reading list for early 2013!
Please, please, please share what y'all have been reading lately, as I'm always up for a good book!!!

The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling

Currently in the middle of reading this - and lets just say we are not in Hogwarts anymore!
Definitely an adult novel - It was a little hard for me to get into this at first, but I've enjoyed it so far.  Has anyone read this yet?  What did you think?

The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain

Really enjoyed this book - If it were a true story, it would be the craziest thing ever.  Its a quick and easy read - perfect for a road trip or a peaceful weekend at home spent reading by the fireplace!

Maine by J. Courtney Sullivan
The best part about this book is the setting.  I'm obsessed with Maine, in fact, I'm planning on moving there as soon as possible!  But for now, I'm stuck in South Georgia with the heat and the gnats...YAY!
Anyway, this book is really enjoyable and will make you want to move to Maine with me!

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
This is on my list of books to read - its been sitting on my shelf for far too long and I've heard it's really good!

Need Two by Darrell Huckaby
This was in my Christmas stocking, which I love - Santa knows me well.
According to Mr. Huckaby's website here is quick synopsis of the book:

Need Two tells the story of Whit and Andrew, two UGA students who have no money, no car and no tickets—but decide that they can’t live if they aren’t in New Orleans to watch their beloved Georgia Bulldogs play Notre Dame for the National Championship of college football.

I love it already...

The House of the Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne
A classic I've never read - can't wait to get started on this one!

Tinkers by Paul Harding
A simply great book!

The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
I think everyone and their brother has already read this book, but I'm going to recommend it here anyway.  This book is really wonderful.   You can tell Gretchen Rubin really pushed herself to become a better and happier person.  She is soooo smart and I really think you will get a lot out of this book, if you haven't already!

Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg
My favorite movie - How could I have never read this book?  Crazy!  I plan to remedy this problem soon!

What Remains by Carole Radziwill 
Go. Buy. This. Book.
I may be biased bc Carole is my favorite Housewife, but before all that she wrote this amazing book.
I could not put it down.  And I cried.  So, so, so hard.
She has an amazing story.

Ok, that's all I have for now.
Please, please share what y'all are reading now!

See you later, loves!

I've had the hardest time thinking of books to read lately, so you definitely helped me beef up my reading list! :) Have you read Bittersweet by Shauna Niequist? Its about my all time favorite.

I loved What Remains, too. You should also read Come to the Edge - lots of Carole and Anthony in that story written by JFK, Jr's first love.

The best books that I read in 2012 were No One Is Here Except All of Us (amazing), Tell the Wolves I'm Home, Northwest Corner, and Glaciers.

I'm adding The House of the Seven Gables and What Remains to my goodreads, thanks for the recs :)
And don't feel bad about not having read The Happiness Project yet (I haven't either), I finally read Tuesdays With Maurie last week and I'm only about ten years late on that one!

Sundresses and Smiles said...

I've discovered a new author I think you'd like--Jane Green. I read her book Another Piece of My Heart over Christmas and loved it. I also just started Beach House by her and am enjoying it so far!

Casual Vacancy and Maine are on my reading list! I'm reading the Divergent series right now. If you haven't read these books, you NEED to put them on your list ASAP.
