Book Review

I finished the book I was reading, The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Oh. My. God. It was so incredibly good. I found out about it from Honestyrain, who said it was one of the best books she ever read, and I agree.

I won't ruin it for you, because if you haven't read it, you should. Its a beautiful story about true love, but its not sappy at all (I hate that). But I did get teary at the end, but it was a good kind of teary.

Seriously, go read it. Now. What are you still doing here??? GO READ IT! You'll thank me later!

Okay, you're the 3rd person to have read that one. Momma K is reading it too. Like I don't have six other books waiting for me!

BTW...I live in VA!!! Too far for a mural unless I come live with you for a couple of weeks! Sorry :0(

I do want to read it since i heard such rave reviews. PS - Just read your comment on my post. YES! I wrote about it in the "When Aunt Flo Met Don Ho" story! That's my friend CATE in the commercials! Are they the new ones? She didn;t even tell me they aired yet! SHe's interviewing women about STAYFREE MACI PADS!! Does she do the same in these ads? You can always email me btw. :)

I wish I had time to read... perhaps if I set my alarm for 4:30am instead of 5:30am.

One day I too will read again.

Maybe if I gave up blogging I would have an hour a day to read????

I LOVED LOVED LOVED that book. I wish I hadn't read it so that I could READ IT AGAIN!!!! Have you read Kite Runner yet? I loved that one, too!

Lately, I've been so crazed that I've been reading "light" reading. Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum detective novels. I can't get enough of them! It's like Sex In The City meets Detective novel! Very racy, lots of fun, and a fast read. First one is called ONE FOR THE MONEY. (great travel read)

I'll check it out I have heard other people talk about it.

I just finished "A Heart Breaking Work of Staggering Genius" by David Edgers. So I need to fill my time with something else.

As for bumbling bav: try audio books

I loved this book! My brother gave it to me for Christmas, with the understanding that I'd loan it to him when I finished. I just bought him his own copy instead--mine's been everywhere with me as I've been rereading it the way I do my all time favorites!

LOVED that book. Totally original and lived up to the hype.

I read this book last year, and I still think about it and the notion of time travelling. It makes me think of love and all the things that go with.

Whenever I see the book in the bookstore, I stop in front of it and smile.

I read a lot of books, and rarely does a book do that for me.

I'm glad you enjoyed it.
