May Books and Gratitude

I did much better getting through some books in May...

  1. The Good Daughters by Joyce Maynard: I picked up this book from the library because I liked the first book by Joyce Maynard. This book is about 2 girls who were born on the same day and the strange relationship they have. There are predictable twists and turns. 
  2. The Last Boyfriend by Nora Roberts: Of course I had heard of this author but had never read anything by her. Since I was in the mood for an easy chick literature romantic stuff. Since this was the first book in a serie I grabbed all 3 books from the library. This was a fun and read about a small mid-western town, a family of 3 boys who are restoring an old inn and 3 best friends. In this book the widowed Mother of 3 books store owner, falls back in love with Bennett, her first boyfriend. With a little help from the ghost that haunts the inn of course. 
  3. The Next Always by Nora Roberts: We are back in the same town with the same people and the story continues. This time we are following the wacky redheaded pizza restaurant owner, and the uptight, always on schedule Owen. In this book these opposites attract and eventually fall in love. 
  4. The Perfect Hope by Nora Roberts: the last book of the series revolves around Hope, the innkeeper and the last single brother Ryder. From the moment Hop laid eyes on Ryder there was an undeniable chemistry. It takes Ryder a lot longer to figure out what that feeling was. The trilogy ends with a big happy bow and everyone living happily every after! 
  5. The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo: this was a book that I read with Phi for her class. A sweet story about a little mouse with a big heart and nerves of steel. His love for the Princess Pea makes him brave enough to stand up to the evilest of rats!
  6. The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom: I have been a fan of his books for a long time. So far none of them have been as good as Tuesdays with Morrie. This one is a strange story about a journalist who is sent to a small mid-western town when a few people start receiving calls from dead relatives in heaven. A widowed father is recently released from prison and his makes it his mission to disprove that the calls are really coming from heaven.
