I hope very much that I have not become too repetative, dull or tedious...
pray do tell if my posts make you snore.
A few days ago I was lamenting about the fact that I have a book that I MUST read for an August workshop "Brain Rules"...the cover does suggest some enlightening information lies within...it sounds very educational and our staff and local family of schools is embracing, and from what I gather, will be implementing many of the principles next term.
But now I am wearing my holiday hat...and am free to read whatever I fancy.
I have a stack of books that I am ready to dive into...
you are wanted to see my list so here it is...
My most recent discovery...
the Jane Austen of contemporary fiction!
I enjoyed Three Junes by Julia Glass so I am hoping that I See You Everywhere will not disappoint.
The American Au Pair sounds light and fun.
Wally Lamb adds to the mix
and the idea of inheriting a stunning country home tickled my fancy.
Julia Glass again
and Mr. HB recommended Loving Frank
about Frank Lloyd Wright and his dramatic life.
Katie Fforde is pure fun
Laurie Graham is a favourite author of mine
I have read all her books except this one.
(I highly recommend her)
Marcia Willett paints lovely pictures with words
I jump right into her books.
Bitter is the New Black sounds somewhat off beat and edgy,
I may not love this one but I am going to try it.
I like to stir things up once in awhile.
Water For Elephants, many book clubs have raved about it and I am rather behind.
The Outcast is set in England and the jacket description sounds a bit like Atonement.
Belonging and Chez Moi are my armchair travels to Europe!
Patti Boyd promises to deliver the goods on "the inner circle" and life with Eric Clapton and George Harrison.
The Highest Tide is set in the Pacific Northwest in and around the islands.
Maybe I will recognize some of the locations.
Tiger Lillie and Hunting and gathering were staff picks at my local used bookstore.
What is on your summer read list?
