I love books!

I love to read and I am TERRIBLY behind in all that I want to read.  Stacks of books all over.  I read all genres and love some cute, funny chick lit at times.  I read a lot of book blogs to get ideas and one I read recently had some . . . interesting. . .  and very inviting titles.  A friend of mine, Jenn, has read a lot of these and laughed until she cried.  I gotta get to reading!!!!!

Jen Lancaster has a few attention grabbing titles:
Bitter is the New Black:  Confessions of a Condescending, Egomaniacal, Self-Centered Smartass, or, Why You Should Never Carry a Prada Bag to the Unemployment Office
or you might like. . . 
Bright Lights, Big Ass:  A Self-Indulgent, Surly, Ex-Sorority Girl's Guide to Why it Often Sucks in the City, or Who are These Idiots and Why Do They All Live Next Door to Me?

Laurie Perry (her blog) has a couple of good ones, too.  I've read and love. . . 
Crazy Aunt Purl's Drunk, Divorced, and Covered in Cat Hair: The True-Life Misadventures of a 30-Something Who Learned to Knit After He Split
and I have her newest one in my stack to read . . . 
Home Is Where the Wine Is: Making the Most of What You've Got One Stitch (and Cocktail!) at a Time

And one I have on a wish list ~ because I heard this as a young woman ~ OOOOOOOO so many times. . .

Suck Your Stomach In and Put Some Color On!: What Southern Mamas Tell Their Daughters that the Rest of Y'all Should Know Too by Shellie Rushing Tomlinson.  I will admit that when I heard it from mom years ago, it was more about holding my shoulders up.  Now, I need to suck in my stomach (along with other parts of my body)!!!!!!!  

Aside from some strong language, these books are REAL life.

Happy Reading!  xx oo
