a few good books

sometimes i have trouble finding good books to read, but i have been on a lucky streak lately! here's what i've been reading:

the help
by kathryn stockett

(i laughed, cried, and as soon as i read the last page, i was ready to read it again)

the last olympian
by rick riordan

(this series is right behind Harry Potter as one of my favorites)

the physick book of deliverance dane by katherine howe

(perfect balance of magic, history and romance)

what are you reading?

* i'm also currently reading the history of love and the monster of florence but i'm not quite finished so i can't endorse them...yet

I also recently finished The Help. LOVED IT!!!!! I borrowed it from a roommate, but that's one that I may just need to own. Right now I'm on a Dan Brown kick. I just read Da Vinci Code for the first time and really liked it so I bought his new book The Lost Symbol and am already hooked 20 pages in. I also recently finished The Count of Monte Cristo. It's intense and sometimes hard to read, but very intriguing and different from the movie! Also, if you haven't read the Secret Life of Bees yet you should. It kind of goes hand in hand with The Help and is a quick and easy read. Thanks for your recommendations. I'm definitely going to have to look some of those other books up!

I'm no bookworm, but I read the book "The Alchemist" and kind of loved it. Also Aaron really liked "Three Cups of Tea"...supposedly that's a good one too :)'ve probably read both of those already but at least I tried! :)
