The Words

good reads: room

Just finished this book last night. Amazing. The plot itself is pretty disturbing. But the way that the story is told, through the eyes of a 5 year old, seems to make everything feel okay. Erin, thanks for the recommendation. And it has received my recommendation too!

Now, I need a new book. Reading anything great lately?

    Oh Lauren…. Goodreads is great! You can look at mine too if you want. But here are some of my favorite reads….. I won’t list them unless I loved them…

    Just finished WILD by Cheryl Strayed a few weeks ago…great great great.
    THE HELP – Assuming you’ve read this.
    A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN – Betty Smith – Amazing.
    LITTLE BEE – CHRIS CLEAVE – I read this in 2 days. Has a disturbing part, but might be one of my favorite books ever.

    And yes, LOVED ROOM!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m reading the Agony and the Ecstasy by Irving Stone. It takes place in Florence, Italy and is about the life of Michelangelo. You would love it.

    Before I Go To Sleep by Watson is a great read. Reminded me a bit of The Time Travelers Wife. You should definitely check out!

    Ah, read this earlier in the year – such a phenomenal book! Have you read any Jeannette Walls? The Glass Castle is her first novel and INCREDIBLE. She wrote a prequel to it called Half Broke Horses, also fantastic. I highly recommend picking up both, but read them in order of publishing date – the stories blew my mind.

    Just discovered your blog – what lovely work!
