I'm not sure how I'm doing on my top 20 must read list. I think as my book lover self goes...I have gotten distracted by other books. A month and a half long headache has kept me from reading at my normal rate lately, but some painkillers and doctor appointments later and I am back at it!
I just finished a YA novel entitled "Out of the Easy." It was set in the Quarter of New Orleans...such a different world from my own. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
I am also reading (therapist recommended) "How to Act Right When Your Spouse Acts Wrong." I haven't gotten too far yet, but I think I am going to like it. It is the definition of - kill them with kindness - but yet it doesn't suggest you should just sit back and take crap from anyone either.
And next up on my list another YA novel entitled, "Splendors and Glooms," which looks to be a spectacularly dark fantasy novel involving puppeteers (and the winner of a Newbery Honor)...more to come as I delve into this one!
I also recently downloaded "The Whiz Pop Chocolate Shop," and am anxious to start it. This book looks to be in the same caliber as "The Candymakers" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." Who doesn't love a book about chocolate!?!
