yes please by amy poehler | mr. byer just brought this home for me, and i couldn't be more excited to start digging into it. i probably shouldn't have included this since i don't have a real review but i wanted to tell you i'm hip and i'm reading this.
the paris wife by paula mclain | this is an oldie but a goodie. it took me a while to actually pick this up and read it. i thought it was all hype. but it's not! it's so enticing and it pulls you in from the get-go. while it's not a "true" story, but i like that it pulls historical facts about ernest hemingway and his wife hadley and writers from that time. it brings them to life in a way that other historical fiction books just don't.
i am charlotte simmons by tom wolfe | it's been over 10 years since i first read this book. crazy, but true. i won't lie, this is a tough and long read. and i mean long. very long. it's the biggest book on my bookshelf (not counting a few of my harry potter books). i like reading it in the fall, since it is a collegiate storyline. tom does an excellent job of looking at the stereotypes of people you meet in college and really expanding on them. it's not a traditional "coming of age" story, but the characters really evolve throughout the book.
so please, tell me, what have you been reading lately?
