Two thumbs up

book love
Books I've read lately and loved:

ONCE WAS LOST by Sara Zarr. I love the very real yet subtle exploration of faith in this book. Release day is today, October 1st - go and get yourself a copy!



HUSH HUSH by Becca Fitzpatrick. This was a real page-turner and kept me guessing until the very end.



THE HELP by Kathryn Stockett. I felt like I lived with the characters in this book, which takes place during the civil rights movement. One of my favorite reads of 2009!



BREATHING by Cheryl Herbsman. Sweet, sweet book with great characters, a memorable setting and a voice that you remember long after you close the last page.



What have you read lately that you've loved?

Thanks for the recommendations, Lisa!

I'd love to have a book chat about ONCE WAS LOST--I'm still thinking about the ending...

I can't wait to read all your selections! I just read CRASH INTO ME by Albert Borris, which was really, really good!
