I had planned on finishing these next couple of posts before the new year..clearly that didn't happen. I have been relaxing with the family and now have a horrid cold.:(
I haven't done a book recap in awhile... so here are the rest of the books I read in 2010.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett- This was a great book. If you haven't read it...and love a historical fiction,you will love this book. It is set during the civil rights movement and is about three black maids who put together a book of stories about how the white women treat them and their own children.
Me and Emma- by Elizabeth Flock. This was not my favorite book, it was well written and there is a good twist, but it is a little sad and depressing. It is about a young girl who has the most awful parents and home life.
Dead until Dark-by Charlaine Harris- This is the first book in a vampire series. It was entertaining, that being said. I didn't continue the series. Too many other books I want to read.
Five Quarters of an Orange-by Joanne Harris- This book took me forever to read, it wasn't a big book, it was interesting... I think it was a bit slow. Another historical fiction set in France during WW2. I thought I was enjoying it while I was reading...however I was happy when it was done.
Miracle on the 17th Green-by-James Patterson & Peter De Jonge. After the last book I flew through this one. It was such a fun easy read. I know just enough about golf to really enjoy this book. Chad really liked it as well.
The Oak Leaves-by-Maureen Lang. This book was so fascinating. It was set current day, but the main character found a journal from a member of her family from many generations ago, so a lot of the story was set in history. Which if you haven't noticed.. I love historical fiction:)
Still Missing-by-Chevy Stevens. This was a great suspense novel. I really enjoyed this book, the whole story was told during therapy sessions from a kidnap victim who was returned.
And the Last book I read in 2010-
The Kitchen House-by-Kathleen Grissom. This was an amazing book, it was up there with Water for Elephants in my opinion. Historical fiction set in the late 1700's-early 1800's. The story of a little white girl who was raised by the black slaves on a plantation in Virginia. The story continues through her early 20's. I loved it. MUST READ!
All of these books except 5 quarters of an Orange and Me and Emma were from my friend Jane, and are books that I would not have probably read if she hadn't given them to me, so THANKS JANE!
Tonight I will be starting a new book... not sure which one yet.
