Last weeks reads:
Runaway Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini .... very nice. I think though that there is only one more book left in the series. I'll be so sad :-(
Secrets of the Code by Dan Burstein. Interesting ... made me think, made me wonder, I loved Da Vinci Code so I had to read this one. And speaking of Dan Brown, apparently the next book is coming out next year sometime. I'm excited and can't wait! LOL
Armageddon and Glorious Appearing by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. Yeah, didn't end with quite the bang I thought it would. I'm glad I finished the series though ... but now it's time for different books!
and of course ...
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling. I'm one of those people who got it at midnight. I finished it yesterday. Much, much, much better than the 5th book (I think the 5th book is by far the absolute worst acctually LOL!). I've already been discussing the book with at least one person ... which is great =)

Okay, I finished The Queen's Fool: A Novel by Philippa Gregory. As with her other book, I loved it! I couldn't put it down ... it was sooooo good! I have another of her books on hold at the library just awaiting it to come in!

Also read:
The Cross Country Quilters by Jennifer Chiaverini ... as with the first 2 quilting books, this was wonderful. This book, however, was about a different group of woman than the first two books. I liked them, but I want to read about the original group some more and continue with this new group! LOL
Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvik. I liked it a lot. I was sad at the sad parts and happy at the happy parts! LOL!

Really, I think I know why I enjoy the quilt series and the AHEB so much ... it's becuase it was woman who were part of a group. I wish I had a book club like in AHEB. I wish I had a quilting group like in Chiaverini's books. I think that's why I'm so taken with them honestly!

I have about 8 books from the library sitting at home, so hopefully I'll get some more good reading done! =)
