The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

I started this book on 07/12/2009. I finished this book on 07/18/2009.

Poor children. I knew I had a really good childhood before but this book makes me so thankful for everything I had down to the shoes my grandma would buy me. I don't understand how parents can neglect a child so much. If you are going to neglect your children then you shouldn't have any. I wish there had been more about Mauren in the book but other then that it was really good. I gave this book a 4 star.

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs

Yes this is a children's book but if you haven't read it you really need to. It's a cute and funny version of the Three Little Pigs as told by A.Wolf. So funny. My 4 and 5 year olds love this book!

Me & Emma by Elizabeth Flock

I started reading this book on 07/07/2009. I finished this book on 07/12/2009.

This book was kind of weird for me. I didn't really get into it till about 100 pages in. I usually don't give a book that long but I did this one. The twist that was close to the end was kind of crazy but in a good way. Overall I rated this book a 2 star.

Gone for a while...

I won't be on the computer as much for the next 3 weeks. My laptop (yes the one that I got back in March) has messed up again. So the only time I'll be on is here and there on the desktop. My laptop messed up a month ago and they gave me a new hard-drive. Well, they didn't give me a hard drive I have a warranty thanks to my mother-in-law, Cindy, on my computer. So they fixed that and then I got it back and it started going to a blue screen all the time while I was in the middle of doing stuff. So Jamie and I took it back up there last night and they said that the motherboard was messed up. And that was probably what was wrong with it when they switched my hard drive. So, anyhow, we'll see. But I do know I'll probably be having withdrawls. Will post soon.

Eyes of Elisha by Brandilyn Collins

I really wanted to finish this book last night but my eyes just wouldn't stay open any longer. I loved this book. As you know if you've read other reviews on the books I've read then you know I'm very picky with my 4 and 5 star books. This is a 5 star. I wasn't sure when I picked it up at the library if I was going to like it but I was sucked into the book as soon as I read the first page. Gotta love when books do that. I loved all the characters and the stories they told. I also loved God having a part in the story. Wonderful!

Now on to book 32!

The Woods by Harlan Coben

This book was really hard for me to get into. I'm not sure why but I just couldn't get into it. But I wouldn't let myself put it down. Once I got into it a little bit it was pretty good. I'm glad I didn't stop reading it but it wasn't one of my favorite Coben books. It had me guessing the whole time as to who did what and when.

Now on to book number 31!!!
