What I'm Reading

Just finished "So Much for My Happy Ending" by Kyra Davis. Very good chick lit. Sad and funny at the same time.

Now I'm reading "The Secret Life of Bees" by Sue Monk Kidd. Beautiful lyrical prose like this.
"Leaning back on my elbows, I slid down till the water sealed over my head. I held my breath and listened to the scratch of river against my ears, skinking as far as I could into that shimmering, dark world. But I was thinking about a suitcase on the floor, about a face I could never quite see, about the sweet smell of cold cream."

The Secret Lives of Bees was such a good book! My tenth grade teacher, who made it a point to share all the new books she read with me, let me borrow it, and I couldn't put it down. Someone should make it into a movie.

Oops, I meant "Life," not "Lives."

I just loved "The Secret Life of Bees". I think you'd like "The Namesake" by Jhumpta Lahiri, "The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini, and "Family" by Buchi Emecheta.

I too read The Secret Life of Bees- excellent!
I also read both The Namesake and The Kite Runner- GREAT reading selections!!
*i'll keep in mind "Family"...

My recommendation: The Time Traveller's Wife (sorry, but I forgot the author)
