Books are fun!

Okay, I love listening to book reviews! I would love to hear from everyone about their favorite books, whether they be for the kiddos or for yourself. I am in a great need for some new novels. I have Jane Austen memorized by now! Here are some of my faves:

Myself:
  1. Anything Jane Austen. I am a Janeite, what can I say??? The real question is what is my favorite Austen novel? Today (it does change!) it would be Northanger Abbey. Cute story!
  2. Drowning Ruth by Christina Schwarz. Very interesting with complex plot.
  3. Anne of Green Gables series. I have read these so many times!
  4. Till we have faces by C.S. Lewis
  5. Modesty, Makeovers, and the Pursuit of Physical Beauty by Jeffrey Holland and Susan Tanner. Beautiful book that has greatly helped my self esteem. I recommend it to all women of all ages!!!! Best of all, it is short.

Kiddos:

  1. Bed, Bed, Bed by They Might Be Giants. It is a funky fun little book!
  2. The Way I Feel by Janan Cain.
  3. The Boy Who Ate America by Nathan Smith Jones and Casey Nelson.
  4. Anything from Eric Carle.
  5. I Aint Gonna Paint No More by Karen Beaumont

Thanks! it was a bummer of a day. It totally sucked. I was so close to crying all day long and Aiden was pushing in one spot all day long and I just wanted to go to the hospital to yank him out! I feel much better today, though. Yeah!
