book shopping

So sad this is the my last post for August.  I may be the only Texan to stay this EVER, but I'm sadly not ready for summer to end.  I'm desperately going to miss the pool, bbq's, the sun not going down till late.  So good-bye summer months it's been fun!

I haven't done a book post in awhile so to finish out the month I'll update y'all on what's on my nightstand and past and future reads. 

::Just Read::

"Firefly Lane" by Kristin Hannah- This was a perfect pool read.  It's about two friends and their journey from their teen years into adulthood.  My only complaint was I felt it was just a little longer than it needed to be, but I still enjoyed it.

"The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes" by Diane Chamberlain- this girl convinced me to read this book that's going on with the Book Beginnings and Bookends Blog Book Club (say that 5 times fast).  I'm kind of following along with the book club reading everyone's discussions just not linking up since I started late.  This was an amazing read!!  This is one of those books you find any excuse to read so you've got a book in one hand making dinner with the other.  I'm excited to see what the next book they choose is.

::Reading::

"The Summer We Read Gatsby" by  Danielle Ganek- not too far into, but loving this book.

"Twenties Girl" by Sophia Kinsella- I heart Kinsella!  This is just the perfect girlie read!

::To Read::

"Sarah's Key" by Tatiana de Rosnay

"Choosing to SEE" by Mary Beth Chapman

"The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo" by Stieg Larsson

My piles of books are overtaking our home.   I've put in pink the ones that I own so if you're interested in trading/borrowing give me a shout.

there are so many good books out there, so it is totally understandable and acceptable to have book piles. I have been on a book shopping ban for like 8 months, almost finished and am super excited for a new batch to come home.

Do you have a copy of Tattoo? If not, I can send you my mass market.

So funny to hear you’ll miss summer when a lot of us are happily welcoming Fall, LOL!!

I love nothing more than book shopping - so fun! If I don't love a book I am bad about finishing it...and then that delays the whole process!

I can never leave a bookstore without at least 2 things. I read Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and loved it. Can't wait to see if you post reviews about the others.
