Welcome to our 8th "What We're Reading" party!!
Ricki Jill and I are your hosts and we're so glad you've joined us.
Please link up your latest reading post - we love hearing what you've been reading lately.
The party will be up until the 25th so you've got time!
This past month I've read quite an eclectic group of books.
My sweet friend Michelle sent Snow Flower and the Secret Fan to me.
We had been out of touch with for years, but thanks to facebook we're now re-connected and I'm receiving gems in the mail!
I enjoyed this read about friendship and love in rural China in the 19th century.
I refuse to see the movie because I've heard it absolutely pales in comparison.
I've got this author on my to-read list.
Next up was the Litwits' September book (my local super-fun book club).
We read the memoir Shattered Dreams: My Life as a Polygamist's Wife.
This is not a book I would have picked up on my own, which I think is a benefit of being in a book club.
I found myself feeling frustrated, disillusioned, and hopeful while reading this book.
It was hard for me to get into, but by half-way through I was pretty hooked.
And yes, I am finally reading the Twilight series, and now I finally get it.
I wanted to read the books before the last book's movie comes out in November and my Chick Flick Club goes to see it.
Then I found out they're turning the last book into two movies so I have a year!
It took me two weeks to get past the second chapter of the first book - Twilight.
Once I gave it another try, though, I found myself hooked.
While I sometimes feel the need to kick Bella in the tush, I am enjoying this series.
And am on the 3rd book now!
So please link up below and let us know what you've been reading!
