Welcome to our Linky Party!
Boy, as co-hostess I feel bad for being so late to the big day but we were on vacation so this is my first chance to link up.
If you haven't had a chance to link up your latest reading post - please do so at Ricki Jill's blog.
And check in on the others who've linked up to find some great new reads!
I finished up the Twilight series over the last month and really liked them.
I have to say that I enjoyed the Harry Potter and Hunger Games series a little more, but did like this series and am glad I finally read it!
Can't wait to see the final book's Part 1 movie next month.
I'm sure the chick flick movie club I'm in will have tickets on opening night!
While enjoying those crazy vampires, I also read a couple of good parenting books and wanted to share this one in particular.
I like the way it's laid out in 26 chapters.
I like the common sense advice that focuses on encouraging children to make their own good choices. A couple of chapters didn't pertain to us (fear of pediatric visits, raising twins, raising girls...) but most did. I read the book and highlighted sections in each chapter. Now David's going through it and we're discussing it. Good book - highly recommend if you have little ones of your own.
The Litwits (my local book club) are reading The Alienist this month and what a great choice for the spooky month of Halloween. I had a hard time getting through the first few chapters of this book but really enjoyed the rest. It's Historical Fiction set in NYC - a murder mystery and soon-to-be made movie starring Leonardo di Caprio. Can't wait for our discussion tomorrow night!
So that's what I've been reading over the last month.
Now, go link up - I can't wait to hear what you've been reading!
