T Minus One Book

My nightstand pile has dwindled down to nothing.  One more book to complete on my summer reading list, it is on order and should be here next week.  I am going to need to compile a new list for vacation, I have a few recommendations already.
The Help

By Kathryn Stockett

Completed! Did not disappoint, even with all the hype.  An amazing first novel, let’s hope it is not a fluke because I look forward to more stories.  A heart warming, hear breaking story of human nature and historical prejudice, thou can be easily applied to modern day prejudice.

The Nine Rooms of Happiness
Loving Yourself, Finding Your Purpose, and Getting Over 
Life’s Little Imperfections
By Lucy Danziger and Catherine Birndorf


Completed!  I enjoyed the concept of the nine rooms in regard to your life (bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, etc..), a good way to organize your areas of improvement.  But in the end it was meh.  Two thoughts to sum it up. 1) Happiness is choice.  2) Live an authentic life.


The Heights
By Peter Hedges


On Order!

    Visiting from Life as MOM. I've looked and looked at The Help, but haven't gotten around to buying/reading it yet. Might have to put it on my shopping list for our local used book store! Thanks for your reviews – love the short and sweet! 🙂

    Carrie – Thanks for visiting! I love the short and sweet too, otherwise I wouldn't ever get the time to post them.

    April – I got lucky and found a friend that had a copy of it. Once I started asking around I got a few offers of copies.

    I'm stopping in from Life as Mom. I loved The Help, too. It's fun to find an unexpected good book 🙂 Happy reading!

  5. Jacky Hackett says:

    Thanks for stopping over Lynn. I am in the midst of what seems to be another unexpected good read. Hope to have a review up soon.

    The Nine Rooms is a good audio choice. Good topic to hear someone TELL you rather than reading the content, I thought.
