Trying to Get Pregnant

Group Read Along

So, I don't know how many of you did read along with The One I Want by Allison Winn Scotch, but if you did.  I reviewed the book last week on my blog and today I posted questions.  I am taking suggestions for September's Group Read until tomorrow morning when I will post a poll and announce the winner on Friday.

 Just a heads up cuz I know a few people were interested but I don't know who actually read it or not!

  • That's cool, PFF! I might join you for the next one....although I tend to take FOREVER to read books. Currently reading The Tale of Edgar Sawtelle and only a little over halfway through. Have you read it?

  • I have not read that one! I have heard about it, but never grabbed it.  Do you like it?

    I am reading Songs for a Teenage Nomad and The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton.

    I am reading Songs for a Teenage Nomad and The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton.

    I do like it so far! It's well-written and interesting. Not exactly a page-turner but good nonetheless.

    I read that Saucy (and finished it). It took FOREVER because while it was good I could never get into it. I read 4 other books in between reading that. I was pretty disappointed by the end of the book since it was so long. I feel like there is a lot of build up and then nothing. But I do know several other people who liked it.

    I read it and enjoyed it, but wish I had never read about how it was similar to a certain Shakespeare play because I felt like I spent the whole book waiting for things to happen.  Hope that at leats makes sense to those that have read it, and doesn't spoil it too much for those who haven't.

    I hope you do! I love talking books and my usual people have been flaking out lately so that makes me sad!

    haha what book can't you get into? I own a copy of Water for Elephants and it does not interest me but so many people say that I need to read it so I keep holding on to it, in hopes that I eventually want to read it! I hope you do join us! You can go and suggest a book on my blog right now, I am going to put a poll up tomorrow where everywhere can then vote on other people's suggestions!

    I'm supposed to be reading Zora Neale Hurstons Their Eyes Were Watching God. It was written in the late 30's and I'm just having a difficult time with the dialouge. I've only read the first chapter, so I know that I haven't given it a fair chance.

    I'm about three chapters into Water for Elephants, and so far I think its okay. Like you, I've had a lot of people tell me it is really good and I have to read it. Reminds me of the Outlander series, everybody keeps saying I absolutely have to read it, but I haven't been able to get more than 40 pages into the first book. It is now sitting on my bookshelf collecting dust.

    Ah I really liked that book! We read it in one of my lit classes in college.  If you really can't get into it, I suggest the movie! (That is the one with Oprah right?) I know it came on tv a few years ago and it was interesting. I think it is definitely a book that helps if you discuss it! I have also been told to read the Outlander series.  Have not yet.

    I read Water for Elephants on the trip to OBX for my wedding last summer. It wasn't exactly uplifting wedding material, lol. But I thought it was a cool book.

    I think she produced or was involved in the movie somehow. I know Halle Berry plays the lead. I suggested a book and signed up to following your blog.

    Yeah, I just wasn't in the mood for the scandinavian gloominess, YKWIM and perhaps that's why I never finished it. I may take your advice and check out the girl who played with fire then. This is the story of Lisbeth right?

    Btw, read your blog and am totally in for Sept if that is okay?
