I'm only one chapter into Silver Linings Playbook, our next Literary Junkies book club read, so I can't say much about it yet. So far, I like the way it's written but it's too soon to tell! I'm about 100 pages into The Forgotten Garden. I've heard so many great things about this book. Rachel from the blog Front Row Seat was SO sweet and sent me a copy of the book after I commented on her review of it on how I need to read it! So here I am now, getting into the book and definitely enjoying it so far! I can't wait to see where this garden comes it - it sounds like we might get some fun magical-ism come into play. That is a word, yes.
Summer is just ahead and my favourite thing to fantasize is laying in a hammock with a good book. What are your top 3 favourite "summer" reads?
Could I have picked two more opposite books? haha! Summer reads are meant to be fun and airy, hence Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang. Hilarious read! I also adored Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants; what a cute series! So easy and fun to read. I picked Girl with a Pearl Earring because I couldn't put it down years ago when I read it. This is one of those books that you could spend an entire day reading in a hammock. Perfection.
What are your top 3 summer "to-reads"?
I don't know about you, but I thought Nanny Diaries was hilarious so I, obviously, have to take a stab at its sequel sometime in the near future! It's the perfect kind of summer book - light and fun. And the other two books, Outlander and Love in the Time of Cholera, are just a couple that I hear are great! I especially want to get into a series so I hope Outlander is as good as I hear.
What book do you wish they'd make it a movie of?
Definitely The Night Circus! Luckily, I heard a rumor that there is a movie coming out. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out!
Has your favorite author published a book lately or going to publish a book soon? Tell us about it.
After reading The Birth House by Ami McKay, I decided I loved her. I have yet to read her latest book The Virgin Cure, though, because a friend who also loved her debut novel told me the second one was a real disappointment. I'm almost scared to try it! We read The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling for the Literary Junkies book club a few months ago and since I loved Harry Potter so much I couldn't wait to get into it! I was so very disappointed. I'm scared that the author of Hunger Games is going to come out with an equally disappointing second stab at writing now!
