My hammock looks so lonely without me, doesn't it? And my books? Ah, my books. They miss the hammock as well. I'm going to have to get them together soon.
And I miss my books. Omg, do I miss my books. I secretly started The Time Traveler's Wife a couple of days ago (even though I still have a couple days left of the semester), just so I can go see the movie. I'm totally riveted. That book is so incredible.
These books are calling my name, and it is taking everything in me to not just go batshit crazy on Amazon right now:
The Cracker Queen by Lauretta Hannon
Letters to a Young Sister by Hill Harper
Because I am Furniture by Thalia Chaltas (Young Adult, but sounds empowering)
The Lost Country by William Gay
I'm Down: A Memoir by Mishna Wolff
Broken: A Love Story by Lisa Jones
Brooklyn by Colm Toibin
So Long at the Fair by Christina Schwarz
The Way Home by George Pelecanos
Rage Against the Meshugenah by Danny Evans (I was so excited to buy this book! Congrats Danny! And if you don't read Danny's blog by now, shame on you!)
Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom
I see you everywhere by Julia Glass
And books that I just finished, that you might want to pick up soon:
The Wednesday Letters by Jason Wright
Sleep Toward Heaven by Amanda Eyre Ward (This book stayed with me for several days, getting wrapped around me like a sheet on my bed)
Love Stories in this Town by Amanda Eyre Ward (This book ended too soon! I wanted more stories!)
Now, it's pretty obvious that I'm a book whore, and that I don't really need any book recommendations, but! please! tell! me! what! you! have! read! and! loved! recently! Please?
