Another Good Read


My book of choice during my recent vacation was These is My Words by Nancy E. Turner. I originally read about this book here on Desperate For a Good Read (which I love by the way!). It was recommended by several people and then my good friend posted about it on her blog and I was even more excited. It did not disappoint! I really liked this book! You can check the links for details but I will just say - great characters, great story, great writing, great landscape, great historical fiction. I was sad to see it end.

Can I borrow this from you, Emily?

Jen said...

Emily, that is one of my all-time favorite books. I laughed and literally cried throughout the whole thing. I'm so glad you liked it!

Melissa said...

I loved this book. Kati reviewed it last year for book club. Everyone loved it. The sequel is not quite as good!

Emily S. said...

Kip - sure! Remind me the next time we get together.

Melissa - I have heard that about the sequel. I probably won't end up reading it.

Julie's been telling me to read this too. As soon as I eek out my knitting project I plan to pick it up!

I just finished it! Great book. I think I may have read it several years ago, because by the end I was remembering things.
