Talking books again!

I am still LOVING my kindle! It actually has caused me to put off house work and getting things done so sometimes, I have to put it down and just stop reading for a while! After reading The Art of Racing in the Rain and Water for Elephants, I read....

Oh I loved this book so much!! It takes a little bit to get started and follow the different grammar they use as southern women in the south but once I got going, I couldn't put it down!


Next, I read this book about an Irish couple that are trying to get pregnant! For anyone who has had any sort of infertility, you will TOTALLY relate to this girls journey! And even if you haven't had your own fertility struggles, this book is a humorous insight of what we go through while trying to get pregnant! It's a light and easy read and then there is a sequel!


I was so excited to be able to read more about this funny Irish woman that I could relate to so much! I am actually still reading it but its great so far!!



Like many of you, I read The Pioneer Woman's blog when she told her story of meeting Marlboro Man, but it is now a published book! I pre-ordered it and it will be on my Kindle, February 1st! I can't wait to read it again as a whole novel!

Many people have recommended that I read Same Kind of Different As Me so I have bought it on the Kindle and will read it next when I finish The Right Fit! I can't wait to start this and figure out what all it is about!
Ok so these books don't sound like ANYTHING I would ever read or want to read, but many people have read them and said the same thing but then they have loved them! I love a series and with so many people's encouragement, I think I will read these soon!!

I will keep you all updated on my reading and you keep the recommendations coming!! I think I may end up reading more books this year than ever thanks to the Kindle! :)

LOve love LOVED The Help! I've also heard about The Hunger Games and Same Kind of Different at Me. I wish there was a netflix for books; I don't want to invest in a Kindle or buy a lot of books, but the public library is always a long wait to get the "in" books.

Way to go with all the reading:) I have never been much of a reader but when I do get started with a book I seem to never want to put it down.

Maybe I need a kindle to get me started reading more:)

I loved, loved, loved the Hunger Games. They are quick easy reads and anyone I know who has read them has not been able to put them down. You are lucky that all 3 are out. I had to wait 6 months for #3 and it was a killer. Happy Reading@

The kindle has put my housework & blogging to the bottom of the list!! It is ridiculous! I am reading "So long Insecurity" & "Crazy Love" right now, and The Help is on my list next!

Glad you are enjoying your kindle & thanks for sharing about your books as well :)

My Mom got a Kindle for her birthday and has loved it. She just finished the Help too and said it was great! I think I'm going to get one too!

I loved the Hunger Games!

BTW: My public library has thing where you can check out books on your electronic reader for free. You should try it!

Meredith said...

There are many books on my reading list! You are quite the reader! I need to catch up! I haven't said much about this on my blog but a year ago, I found out I have PCOS. That can affect fertility and I've been pretty upset about it. I know you are going through waiting for a baby too and I am praying for you. Hope you have a great week.

Nancy said...

I can't wait to read Ree's book ~ I LOVE her blog so much!
That Kindle is so neat! Who would have thought there would be something like that available ever? I am amazed!

Lauren said...

I’m convinced now more than ever that I need to get a Kindle!!! Great book list!!! :)

Brooke said...

I LOVE Same Kind of Different As Me!! You will love it!

nlmcc said...

Ok, so I want an E-Reader!! Can anyone help me decide what to get? Kindle or Nook?? Why one over the other?

Cara Beth said...

I'm not a big reader but you are making me wonder if I should invest in a Kindle. Of course I would have to get the Nook since it's the Barnes and Noble version and Buie works at BN. I won't tell him you bought the competition. (wink)

Nichole said...

So funny - I was actually going to send you a twitter message and suggest "Baby Trail" to you. I just got a Nook Color and am addicted to it!! :) I'm in the same fertility struggles as you so I follow your blog because I can TOTALLY relate to you! My husband and I have just begun the adoption process so I'm excited to start "The Right Fit." HAPPY READING!!! :)

Brittany McClain said...

So glad you posted about these books! I hate buying books that haven't been recommended by someone I know, so this helps so much. Yay I'm excited!

Heather said...

Funny that you mention The Help, AND Same Kind of Different as Me. I've had SO many people recommend both lately, and I actually just bought BOTH this week. I'm not sure when I'll have time to sit down and read them...but I'm anxious to read them...and I'll be interested to see what you think about them too.. From what I understand, they're both amazing.

Maybe I need a kindle?

We also read "Firefly Lane" by Kristin Hannah - one of my all time favorites!

I just started to read The Help after a friend from work recommended it to me.

My 11 year old read the Hunger Games series and she loved them.

Hey Julee!!

I actually got my kindle 2 days ago and I have a few books on there that I need to read. I love it!!! I really didn't think I would love my kindle as much as I do, so those of you don't have one, find someone who does and check it out!! You can share books on it too, which makes it even better!!

I have The Help and Water for Elephants on my list and I can't wait to read them.

I love your blog!! :)

I don't know if you like memoirs at all but I absolutely loved The Glass Castle and Half Broke Horses by Jeanette Walls. She came to speak at the high school where I am a counselor, also, and she was great. I just finished Roses which is a family saga in TX (where I live) and it was great.
