August Books and Gratitude


I kinda got my reading groove back in August thanks to some short reads. In  Book 43-48 were done!

43. She's Gone Country by Jane Porter: A fun and quick summer kinda read. It had enough drama and hot cowboys to keep me entertained.
44.Not Taco Bell Material by Adam Carolla: I think I have read everything this man has written. This book was told in order of the houses that he lived in. I love his straight forward no b.s way at looking at things.
45. Landline by Rainbow Rowell: ARGHH I loved this book. Last year I read Eleanor and Park and loved it. I read a few more of her books and was not as impressed. I am happy to report that this book was Eleanor and Park good! I even recommended it to 2 librarians! yes my nerd status is at a level where I give book recommendations to librarians.
46. My Wish List by Gregoire Delacourt: This best seller from, France was a really quick read. The story was really interesting. A woman wins the lotto and keeps it a secret from everyone. While she tries to figure out what she wants to do with the money her husband takes off and changes everything.
47.Little Mercies by Heather Gudenkauf: I picked up this book off the shelf because my sister is Little Mercy. This was another quick and good read that revolves around a social worker who leaves her infant daughter in a hot car, and a young runaway.
48.Actors Anonymous by James Franco: thank goodness he has acting to fall back on. This book was no bueno, but it was so bad that I could not put it down. I just had to know how much worse the book was going to get.
