Book Review

Summer is the time to sit back, relax and enjoy the things that you really love to do. Luckily both of my boys are now at an age where they can play by themselves for extended periods of time, which all allows me to do exactly what I love to do, which is read. I have already read five books since the beginning of June, and I have a stack of about 7 more on my night stand. So here is my mini book review, just in case you are in need of a good summer read.

House Rules by Jodi Piccoult: This book is about a boy with Aspergers that gets charged with the murder of his behavioral specialist's. I figured out the ending relatively early in this book, but it was written so well that I wanted to finish it through to the end.

The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks: This book is about a girl who goes to live with her father for the summer and falls in love. Very generic, I know, but the book is awesome. The only down side I had, was every time I read the main characters lines her voice came out in head as Miley Cyrus I haven't seen the movie yet-- just the previews were enough to do it for me.)

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen: I loved this book. It was about a veterinarian that worked for a traveling circus during the depression. I could not put it down!!

Look Again by Lisa Scottoline: This book was about a mother who sees one of those "have you seen me cards" in the mail, and the child in the picture looks remarkably like the child she adopted. I am not usually into mysteries, but this one held my attention, and I was surprised by the way it turned out.

The Carrie Dairies by Candace Bushnell: This is Sex in the City before Carrie becomes corrupt. It tells the story of Carrie in high school. It has all the same great humor of Sex in the City without all the sex!
