I'm a reader...

Yes I am! I finally got back into reading. I couldn't do it during my pregnancy- I had the attention span of my grade 5ers. I started so many novels, just to put them down again and promise myself I'd pick them back up once I had Zachary. HAHAHAHA! AS IF I had time to read once I had Zach. I was lucky if I showered and ate during the day.

Now that Zach is creeping closer to 5 months (gulp!), goes to bed at about 7:30pm, and I have a cleaning schedule that allows me to do chores during naps, I finally have time to read. The library, where we have story time, is now my best friend! I picked up two books last Wednesday and devoured them both. I apparently have forgotten how fast I read and now am desperately searching out new reading material- library only of course!

I read "Velocity" by Dean Koontz- it was good but I figured out who the murderer was about 1/4 of the way into the novel. That always ruins it just a little bit (it's hard to be this smart...).
Then I read "Change of Heart" by Jodi Picoult. It was BEAUTIFUL and heart-wrenching and just a lovely, lovely read. Her books deal a lot with family dynamics and, while this book had a happy ending, it really was emotionally charged and thought provoking.

So- my quest continues for NON-BABY related novels to read...any good suggestions???


  1. I just read My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult....sooooo good! Very different from the movie. Also really loved "Water for Elephants" but I can't remember the author.

  2. I've read nearly all Jodi picoult's books - they are all good! Keep reading hers! My daughter is 5 months and I read while nursing and before bed.

  3. The memory keeper's daughter and the alchemist were both pretty good

  4. Try Greg Isles or James Patterson. They are my favorite authors! If I can find some books (we moved 2 months ago and they are still packed), I will bring them next week for you :)

  5. I really loved Through Black Spruce by Joseph Boyden. He's got another book that I haven't read but it's supposed to be just as good. And both Steve and I LOVE any mystery by Peter Robinson.
