01. Two Kisses for Maddy by Matthew Logelin - this is the last book I read and the first nonfiction book I've read probably since High School (or maybe college, I guess). You can read the review of it I did on my blog here. If you don't handle sad books very well then you shouldn't read it. I didn't think that I would read it because I don't handle sad things well . . . but I couldn't help it and I'm glad I decided to try.
02. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks - this is the only book I've ever read more than once. I just can't bring myself to read books twice. I get bored. This book, though, I read so fast the first time (it was a really quick read) that I decided to try reading it again . . . and I actually did get through it a second time. So, I figure I must really like it then, right?
03. The Help by Kathryn Stockett - This was my favorite book we read at book club. I LOVED the book! Such a great story and such awesome characters. I was a little bummed out that the ending wasn't more . . . exciting but I can't wait to see the movie!
04. The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley - This is the longest book I've ever started and finished because I wanted to read it. It was the summer I was working in a little shop in Oakmont. I passed the time waiting for people to come into the store (it wasn't a really busy store at all) by reading this book. I LOVED it. I actually thought about trying to reread it now . . . but I can't. It's too long and a story I know too well. It was worth reading the first time, though. Gave me a totally different perspective on the whole Arthur saga. :)
