Book Numbers: I don’t even remember anymore

I think I up to about 45 books this year.  At least I was the last time I saw my notebook.  The contents of our living room are currently stacked precariously in my office, so I don’t know when the notebook will resurface. 

I can tell you about a few of my favorites, though.

The Boleyn Inheritance—Philippa Gregory

I am pretty sure I am going to end up reading everything she has written.  This was in the same vein as “The Other Boleyn Girl” and talked about the lives of the 4th and 5th wives of Henry VIII.  I very seriously ignored everything else while reading this book.  So good.

Mixed Signals—Liz Curtis Higgs

This book wasn’t particularly good or special, but I just thought it was so sweet.  It felt like autumn to me..cozy, sweet.  Like a blanket and cup of coffee.  I ended up ordering my own copy, because it’s the type of book I can grab when I need a pick me up and reread.

And right now I am reading Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky.  I think if I were able to devote an appropriate amount of time and thought to it, I would enjoy it more than I am.  But it was not the best choice for a “back to school” book.  It’s very good…it’s just taking me a while to get through it.
