Recent Reading

As I've mentioned before, I am an avid reader and I absolutely LOVE reading. Not only do I enjoy reading, I think that it substantially increases my vocabulary and improves my writing. I'm a very fast reader; I usually average a book every two weeks. Thus, I am constantly on the look-out for new books to read! Here are a few of my recent favorites:

South of Broad by Pat Conroy (probably my favorite author):

The Help by Kathryn Stockett:Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah:

Next up in my queue is The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory:
Gregory wrote The Other Boleyn Girl, which got me hooked on her series about the Tudor Monarchy. I am a history junkie, so these books have kept me occupied for a while!
Do you have any good book recommendations? Please share!


  1. Thanks for sharing your recent reads! I'm always on the look out for new books, and I have heard so much about these titles recently!!! I'm definitely going to add one or two to my collection!!

    Love reading your super cute blog!


  2. Great post :-)

    I LOVE the Help -- so good!

  3. i can't seem to get into "south of broad." the author uses SO many adjectives and adverbs - it's distracting!! but, since i used to live SOB (on S.Battery) I'm determined to keep going!

  4. Loved Firefly. You may like titles by Mary Alice Monroe and Elizabeth Strout.

  5. You inspired me to buy Firefly Lane. I am only about 1/4 in it and LOVE it! thanks!
