I'm something of a book junkie. I need a serious book intervention. The Library just doesn't cut it for me. I'm a horrible book borrower. I'm pretty sure they have a picture of me behind the counter that says, "DO NOT LEND TO THIS WOMAN!" Oh, and I don't have a kindle. There are piles of books all over our house. It's the one thing I hoard, besides for canned goods. We leave for Florida tomorrow, and I just packed 4 books. HAHAHA! That's hilarious. But I packed them anyway! Here's what I'm bringing:
The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels - A Love Story, by Ree Drummond
Life, by Keith Richards
The Opposite Of Me - A Novel, by Sarah Pekkanen
Gods in Alabama, by Joshilyn Jackson
I've been dying to read Black Heels ever since I heard that Ree was writing it. I read the first 10 pages and had to force myself to stop reading it. I even tried the old "book in the freezer" trick. It actually worked!
The second is for my trashy book club. Our meeting is two days after we get back from vacation. The book is about 600 pages long. Whoops! Oh well, it's more about the wine and food and the girls night out. The last book we read was, Here's the Story - Surviving Marcia Brady and Finding My True Voice, by Maureen McCormick. TRAIN WRECK!
The last two I read about over on Jennsylvania, Jen Lancaster's hilarious blog. She did a Winter reading list post a few weeks ago and mentioned new books by both Sarah Pekkanen, and Joshilyn Jackson. Since I'd never read them before, I decided to order their debut novels. I'm so excited for these two! I love discovering "new" authors.
I highly doubt I'll finish them all. I'll be happy if I finish one! But I'll be damned if I won't try.
