Re: The SAHM Book Club Weekly Check-In

  • I am still reading Shopoholic & Sister and really liking it but that's no surprise and I loved the other books in the series.  :)

  • I finished Chasing Harry Winston last week, and this afternoon I read Multiple Blessings by Jon & Kate Gosselin. A very quick read... it was interesting to learn more about how their faith plays a role in their journey to have the 6 kids and in their first year of life.

     According to my count, that brings me to 8 books for the year. Now I'm reading Friday Night Knitting Club.

  • I also read Multiple Blessings and enjoyed it. It was interesting to hear more about Jon and Kate before they had the sextuplets. I was wanting to hear more about their families but they didn't write too much other than about Jon's dad and Kate's great-grandparents. I've always wondered why the others are never mentioned.

    I read Mommywood by Tori Spelling as well. I like her books. They're funny and a very quick read. I ordered Candyland by her mother so now I'll have to get the other side of the story in their mother/daughter drama! ;)

  • no change here.. I do want to buy and read Bethanny Frankels new book ( from the Real Housewives) Anyone have it?
  • I have been so busy lately and haven't had much time to read.  I am still reading The Secret Life of Bees.

    This one is also on my to-read list!

  • I finished two books recently -

    The Story of Edgar Sawtelle - This book was well written but actually kind of disappointed me. Well, not really, I did enjoy it but felt at times it was kind of slow.

    Handle With Care - This is Jodi Piccoult's new book. Like most of her books, I loved it and could not put it down!

    These two put my personal count of books read for the year at 32.

  • I just put down Love the One Your With by Emily Giffin (Griffith? too lazy to go check).  I'm going to make myself finish it because I've loved all of her other books, but I'm not feeling this one.  With out a spoiler, does it get better (I'm about 40% done)?

  • I finished "Everyman" by Philip Roth, which was ok.  Well written, but about growing old, so maybe not a great choice.  I am now reading "In Her Shoes" by Jennifer Weiner.  Maybe when I'm done, DH will take DS for the night and I'll stay up and watch the movie!

  • I finished The Girl From Foreign and A Death in The Family. ?I just started The Stone Diaries, this is part of my effort to read all of the Pullitzer pprize winning fiction booksm I have barely made a dent. ?

    I generally have to books going at a time, I think I keep better track of the details whenmy mind is forced to make distinctions. ?With one book I get lazier, ex. ?I have been "reading" Pigs in Heaven for half a year!?

  • I just finished the last 2 books of the House of Night series... I am now reading Chelsea Handlers book.. :)
  • I am almost finished with Voyager (book 3 in the Outlander series.)  But goodness ,it is long...and a little dry.  Hopefully I'll be starting My Year in France (Julia Child) and Loving Frank (Nancy Horan) this weekend.
  • Hi ladies,

    While I am not in your book club, or even a SAHM yet, I will be as soon as my little man gets here, I thought you may like a recommendation of a wonderful book I just finished...

    https://www.amazon.com/Year-Son-Were-Born-Self-Discovery/dp/0762750618

    It was wonderfully written, very honest, and an excellent read.

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSS!!!  

    LOL, sorry... I loved that book, although it's got a different vibe than her first two books that I really loved.  The book does "get better" and I really LOVED how it wrapped up. Stick with it but do check back and let us know what YOU thought.  :)

  • I finished The Friday Night Knitting Club...it was great. Cried like a baby at the end. I suggest everyone READ IT! =]

    I'm now a few chapters into The Virgin Suicides. It's really good!
