After the big one was born, I pretty much stopped reading all together. I just didn't think I had time. I was working full time and she was, well... a handful. I truly forgot how much I love to read until....
I was reading one of my favorite blogs Hot Mess Mom. One of her posts at the end of March was a review of various products, one of them being a novel. HMM had two copies of the novel which she was offering to the first two readers who expressed interest. I was one of the lucky two. The novel, Shadow Swans is the author's first and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I received the book the first week of April and have read nine books since. Thank you Hot Mess Mom! Thank you for reminding me how much I love to read.
Here are some of my recent favorites:
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer- I must warn you, this is a book about child abuse and is graphic. It is a great story of strength and survival, but may not be for everyone.
The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven by Kevin Malarkey
