Who didn't read and love "The Help"? If you didn't, you are missing out.

"The Summer of Us" was a quick, beachy-type read. Entertaining for sure & my first book of Holly Chamberlin's. She has others that I will put on my 2012 list.

"One Thousand Gifts" was another book I think most of us read. While I enjoyed the book I have to admit it took me a while to get through it - I found her writing style a bit difficult for me but there are post-it notes and highlights throughout the book reminding me of some of the phrases I really liked or paragraphs I want to look back on. I think it makes a great gift, too.
I did read some library books and non-fiction books I liked. In no particular order:
- Veganist by Kathy Freston - Kind an eating manual of sorts.
- Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin - Ditto, but this one kind of makes you never want to eat anything again!
- American Wasteland by Jonathan Bloom- Chronicles how much food we throw away (can you believe half of our food is thrown away? I had no idea!)
- Eat by Ian K Smith, MD. Yet another food book. Interesting by lots of common sense stuff, too.
- The Future Church:How Ten Trends are Revolutionizing the Catholic Church by John L. Allen, Jr.-Interesting if you are interested in this type of thing.
- Crunch Time by Diane Mott Davidson
- Perfectly Imperfect by Lee Woodruff
- Late, Late at Night by Rick Springfield
- The Gift of an Ordinary Day by Katrina Kenison
- Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer
- Sliver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand
Linking up to the Nester today to see what others are reading.
