What Do You Recommend?

As most of you know I am a HUGE reader and book lover and I need your help! I've been thinking a lot lately about my Book Club and about what books I want to suggest for our next 4 book choices. That's when the thought came to me, "Why not ask my friends in the blogging world what books they've read and would recommend?!" Duh!? (I know, I'm a bit slow when it comes to using my blog for things like that but I'm still learning so stop laughing at me! ;)
So PLEASE, help a girl out and let me know what your favorite book is, old or new. Think about what have you read lately that touched you in some way or has someone told you about a book they thought you would love? (Just so you know we have already read the whole Twilight series so you don't need to mention those ones!)
Please leave me your comment about what book you would recommend and why and I would greatly appreciate it! Who knows, maybe you'll get a batch of homemade cookies on your porch for the help!

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. A wonderful book about love, life, struggles, and sisterhood! I hope you are both well! We miss you guys!

I just finished the first book in the Peter Pan series by Steve Barry. It was nice reading a new part the same story we all grew up with. I think it is called Peter and the Starcatchers.

That Eric comment was actually from me.

I loved A Thousand Splendid Suns by the same author as the Kite Runner. Also, These is My Words. You may have already both of them.

There is a three book series called, Posion Study, Magic Study and Fire Study by Maria V. Snyder. I enjoyed them. Also if you haven't read The Host yet, I recommend that.

Last of the Breed by Louis L'Amoure. It has been an all time favorite of mine. :)

I know this sounds kind of cheeset, but I was watching Oprah and her book club selection looks amazing... I think I'm going to go get it tomorrow! I can't remember what's it's called, but it's on her website I'm sure. Anyhow, let me know when you are ready to rock out!

I really recommend for EVERY WOMAN to read The Gift of Fear by Gavin Debecker. It is an informational book about how to use your God given intuition to keep yourself safe in this world. For anyone reading this comment, he was just on Oprah for the 10th anniversary of this book's release, Oprah has used his expertise. The man is a genius and speaks the truth. I gotta say it is a MUST for every daughter, mother or single woman! GET IT and LIVE BY IT! Be safe!

Okay, I am going to be there to suggest this, but I think we should read "Wicked: the Life & Times of the Wicked Witch of the West." Also, there are some books in this same vein called the Wicked Series that we could read if this one is a hit. I LOVED Wicked on Broadway :)!!

Well, if I know Kelly, I know she's got a great sense of humor and a bit of a naughty side. That said, read EVERYTHING by David Sedaris. I'm working on When You Are Engulfed in Flames, his most current work right now, but there are LOTS of others. Just pick one and run with it. Readily available on Amazon if youre looking for a bargain and filled with "Oh no he di'unt!" humor. He is actually my idol.

Logan said...

Lol, as I re-read that comment, I think I should replace "naughty" with "edgy". Jared looks much tougher than I, so for the sake of accuracy and self preservation, I pronounce Kelly to be, in fact, edgy. Sorry Jared.

Pillars of the Earth, and These is My Words, like Trish suggested
