Read Any Good Books Lately?

I like to read.  Pretty much anything-except non-fiction and leadership books-I've had enough of those!  This summer I read a few books.  I read Water for Elephants, The Secret Life of Bees, and lots of baby books.  I didn't really like Water for Elephants, but I did like The Secret Life Of Bees.  Right now I'm trying to read Emma.  I read Pride and Prejudice last summer and really liked it, but Emma is a lot more boring...Jane Austen needed a little less conversation and a lot more action in that book for my taste!  Anyways, I now have a library card, because I realized it is much cheaper to borrow the books and see if I like them before I buy them.  So I am taking suggestions for books to read.  If you have any ideas of good books, tell me!  As I said before, I like just about anything, especially historical fiction, and I'm into classic novels.  It makes me feel smart to read those.  I'm reading back over this blog entry, and it seems like I NEED to read more because my writing is horrible!  If you have any suggestions, let me know...Denise-I'm anxiously awaiting your suggestions!  Oh, and I often read what I'm reading out loud to Ava, (Emma has proved to be a good bedtime read for her) so no trashy romances.  I think they're pretty stupid anyways!

Well...check my reading blog for a few suggestions. I have read more non-fiction lately than fiction, but I'm into a James Patterson right now which is definitely not Ava material. My reading blog is and you'll find almost two years worth of books that I've read and blogged. Some are leadership, some are adult fiction, some are from the high school library, some are Christian fiction/non-fiction. My tastes are pretty eclectic. Anyway...maybe you can find a suggestion or two. Be sure to leave me a comment if you read anything on the list. Happy reading!
