Back and Reading!

I can't believe it has been five weeks since baby was born. Hard to believe!!!

Obviously, there isn't much down time. My husband will usually take over for awhile so I can have a nap but I also love soaking in a tub. That is where I am getting some quality reading done.

Since mid-May, I have read the POTLUCK CLUB TAKES THE CAKE by Shepherd, CHASING HARRY WINSTON by Weisberger, ENCHANTRESS OF FLORENCE by Rushdie, GIRLS IN TRUCKS by Crouch and CANDY GIRL by Cody, and EMBRACE ME by Lisa Samson. Whew!

The POTLUCK CLUB book and the Lisa Samson book are both Christian fiction. I have a pretty low tolerance for most Christian fiction but I find the Potluck Club series delightful. Sort of a Christian version of the JANE AUSTEN BOOK CLUB or DIVINE SECRETS OF THE YA-YA SISTERHOOD. I also love Lisa Samson's books and EMBRACE ME was no exception.

ENCHANTRESS was my first Rushdie read and I was disappointed. The writing is amazing but I found the story tedious. CANDY GIRL was often laugh-out loud funny but the subject material could be eyebrow-raising.

Trying to get in as many books as I can !
