This book is a must read! It will stay with me forever. It is one of those books that you desperately want to put down because it is so sad but you can’t because you have to know what happens. I will give you one warning about this book: If you read it have tissues handy.
This book was hilarious! My daughter (12 years old) came in when I was reading it and laughing like a fool. Not surprisingly, she laughed the minute she read the title and asked if she could read it next. I finished it and passed it on to her. She spent the next hour or so laughing too!
The Photographs in this book are exactly what you are expecting. They are amazing and varied. This is the perfect coffee table book! It is fun to flip through slowly and visitors will be intrigued enough to open it. It makes for a good conversation starter at dinner parties if left laying open to some exotic photo.
I have met my goal for 2013 of reading 52 books. I have already exceeded it. I thought it over when I finished number 52. I could consider it finished and just continue without a new goal or I could set a new goal since I still had half the year left. I went with set a new goal and decided it would be double the first goal. I am aiming to finish 104 books by the end of the year. I will be going back to school this Wednesday and I graduate in December which will make for a busy fall/winter but I think I can do it.

My 27th book of the year was “The Hound of the Baskervilles.” This book is a classic and it does not take long to figure out why. I love Holmes and Watson! I was hooked within the first couple chapters and barely put it down! I literally was awoken by my husband trying to wiggle it free to put a book mark in because I read until I could not keep my eyes open any longer! Now from me that is a huge compliment for a book. I usually read for about an hour before going to bed. I read this book in a couple of days because I could not seem to put it down! I love how much of this book centers on Watson. I was highly impressed and suggest this book to all.

My nineteenth book of the year was the award winning “Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging – Confessions of Georgia Nicolson” by: Louise Rennison. It follows the life of a teenage girl in journal style. It was a decent read. My 12 year old is reading it too. This was a book that we can talk about that covers big stuff (Self-esteem, friends, boyfriends, mean girls, moving, sex, school issues) in an easy going way. This is a series. I didn’t know that when I started and was totally thrown off by the ending. The book just sort of stops. I would still suggest this, especially for mother/daughter reading.

My eighteenth book of the year was Babe – The Gallant Pig by: Dick King-Smith. I read this to Bella (my 3-year-old) one or two chapters a night. It is the perfect chapter book to read to small children. It is a classic, the chapters are not very long, and there are occasional pictures for the kids to enjoy. Every parent should add this book to their read aloud pile.
