Vacation Reading

During my vacation I read The Host by Stephenie Meyer. It was pretty good. Not fabulous, but entertaining, and actually pretty thought provoking. I have no idea whether the author intended to include any symbolism, but it was hard not to read those things into it when you know the author's religious beliefs. The story is really about what it means to be human. My mom and I had fun discussing it.Next I read These is My Words by Nancy Turner. I loved it! I highly recommend it. It's exciting and romantic, and clean. It's written in diary form, and the character is uneducated (hence the title) so it took a little getting used to, but once I did I was totally into the story. I was excited to find out there are two sequels.


  1. Really?! You have no idea how happy that makes me! I was so sad when I finished These Is My Words because I wanted to keep reading!

  2. I have both sequels if you wanna borrow them - they are WONDERFUL!

  3. Oh I was just so turned off with that sappy vampire nonsense. I seriously threw the 3rd book across the floor when I was half way through it... I just can't handle it. Seriously? I trust you so if you say so i might just try again.

    I am however in the middle of These is my words... in fact I'm just aching to go get to it.
