so i'm in the middle of vbs-set-construction mayhem, which basically means my hallway and living room are littered with craft glue, paint cans, caulk guns, duct tape, and, um, thirteen 4x8' styrofoam boards. please don't drop by just now.
anyway, i owe y'all a two-month booklist (because, as you recall, i was vacationing when may's list was due), but before somebody scans the number of books below and comments on how i've been slacking, let me just explain that for three weeks in there (that would be the neurotic-packing week followed by the two chowing-plate-lunches/sitting-happily-on-the-beach weeks) i briefly had a life and therefore only read about a book per week.
and also the dog ate my homework.
but right, the books. here we go:
KEEPING FAITH Jodi Picoult
DOES MY HEAD LOOK BIG IN THIS Randa Abdel-Fattah
MISTIK LAKE Martha Brooks
NINETEEN MINUTES Jodi Picoult
HP AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE JK Rowling
THE TENTH CIRCLE Jodi Picoult
SALEM FALLS Jodi Picoult
HARVESTING THE HEART by--guess who?--Jodi Picoult
TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE Mitch Alcomb
AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHERINES John Green
THE BROKER John Grisham
DUMPING BILLY Olivia Goldsmith
THE SAND CASTLE Rita May Brown
LOVE THE ONE YOU'RE WITH Emily Griffin
THE DEAD AND THE GONE Susan Beth Pfeffer
BONE BY BONE Tony Johnston
MERE CHRISTIANITY CS Lewis
okay, so apparently i was on a picoult binge there for a while. i borrowed two of her books from the library, and then my SIL mailed me three more. good thing she writes well.
no complete stand outs (or possibly my memory is shot, that could be it), but i most enjoyed KEEPING FAITH, AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHERINES, and BONE BY BONE.
happy reading, dear friends.
