Books

Those who know me well know I LOVE to read. I want to share with you some of the books I have read this year, some that are worth reading and some that are not.

Going Rogue (Sarah Palin)- Worth reading, for those who love her AND hate her. But how could you possibly hate her? Especially if you read the book :)

The Politician (Andrew Young)- Worth reading, if you take interest in the John Edwards scandal. I was definitely interested in all the juicy details from someone who worked so closely with John Edwards, however, with all the different stories and contradictions, who can you really trust?

This Much I Know Is true (Wally Lamb)-DEFINITELY worth reading. I personally LOVE Wally Lamb. He is one of the most talented authors I have ever read. With over 900 pages, this book is the longest book I have ever read. It took me a couple weeks, but it went by so quickly because it was so great.

So Long, Insecurity (Beth Moore)- Eh, not so much worth reading. I found that this book was very generalized and did not hold my interest. I felt like Beth Moore was saying a lot, but at the same time not really saying much at all. If that makes any sense.

How to Make Love like a Porn Star (Jenna Jameson)- Surprisingly well-written and worth reading. Obviously not someone I can relate to, but a good story either way. Her autobiography is a perfect read for someone interested in psychology (i.e. me). And I think this book has the potential to spice up your own personal love life, as it goes into steamy rated-R detail about sexual encounters. And if reading about sex for a week straight doesn't get you in the mood, then i don't know what will!

To Kill a Mockingbird (Harper Lee)- This book is in-progress. Surprisingly I have never read it, but the 50th anniversary of this American classic is this year, so I figured it is about time for me to break down and read it. So far, so amazing! I definitely can relate to Scout, love that the book is set in the South, and the writing is phenomenal. I've been reading this book very slow because the vocabulary is surprisingly advanced and because I found myself digesting each sentence with awe and admiration. I can already tell that this will be a new favorite!

    LOVE To Kill a Mockingbird. I'm sure we've had this conversation before, but I CAN'T believe you've never read it. You'll definitely continue to love it!
