I'm pretty positive I haven't read a fiction book since last February, when I read The Hunger Games. I never followed up with book 2 or book 3 after that, not because I didn't thoroughly enjoy the book, but because I needed a break from the intensity and because I was moving, having a baby--you've heard it over and over by now. Ahem. I did, though, pour quickly through Bloom by Kelle Hampton (after reading The Hunger Games) and I really liked it. It resonated with me, particularly because I knew we were having a baby with Down syndrome, but also because I like her writing and her photography and read her blog! **My great aunt also read Bloom, but it was a touch racy--too many curse words for her! But if you can get past that, it's a touching, cry your eyes out, but inspiring and encouraging story!
Anyway, these books are ones I'm hoping to tackle this year. Take a look.
May be a little on the heavy side, a light one or two in the mix, but no fiction. Zero. Although, I will have a fiction book to add to my list in September, when my talented cousin, Jody Casella, releases her very first book, Thin Space, a young adult novel that I can't wait to read! I thought Jody was the coolest, growing up! She was so smart, knew everything about literature, hilarious, let me visit her in her college dorm and would play Barbies with me anytime! She even wrote and illustrated a book for me using my toys as the main characters. And now, all grown up, we even have our oldest boys sharing October birthdays, only 12 years apart! So happy for her that her first book is on the way!
But back to it! I need some fiction suggestions. . .anyone?? What are you reading? Help!
