Need a Book Suggestion! STAT!

Hi Hi!

As you know (or maybe you don't know, which means you must be new so now you know), I am an avid reader.  Not having a book in my hand or on the nightstand waiting to be read, is like a caffeine junkie running out of coffee on the morning it is most needed.  I've been that person, too.  It ain't pretty.

I was lamenting this fact to Eric when he said I should tell people on my blog that I need book suggestions.  
Not a bad idea.

 You can see from the list on my sidebar what I have read in the past year.  Those books are what I have read with my book club and at our last meeting, we were so engaged in a debate about which actor would play Christian Grey in a movie, we forgot to suggest new books for the summer!  I still say the actor will be a new face but I may be alone in the that thought.  

 I have also read a bunch of other books in the past year, because that's just who I am.  To name a few... The Help, The Hunger Games, Game of Thrones (LOVE), Girl with a Dragon Tatoo series, and a bunch of educational-type books that my vice principal made me read as part of our staff development last year. 

Can you suggest a book or two for me to read?  I like just about every genre of writing.  Plus, if I read your suggestion, I'll give you a friendly little shout out for suggesting it to me!
Happy Wednesday!

PS  Wishing my Daddio a very happy birthday today!!


  1. I liked Sarah's Key and also Winter's Garden by Kristian Hannah.

    That's so funny that you know Doofers! By the way, I try and respond back to you in through email and it looks like you don't have an email tied to your account. Just thought you might want to know :)

  2. I usually like memoirs and nonfiction, but here is a list that is a mix of those and some fiction, too. "Room" by Emma Donoghue, "The Man in the Rockefeller Suit" by Mark Seal, "Where You Left Me" by Jennifer Gardner Trulson, "Riding in Cars With Boys" by Beverly Donofrio (yes, like the movie), "Death Be Not Proud" by John Gunther, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" by Stephen Chbosky.

  3. Have you read the Wicked series by Gregory Mcguire? Kim


What say ye?
