Book Talk!

Since I last blogged I have read some great books that I've really enjoyed. I liked Lauren Graham's book (typical but still pretty entertaining, I had no idea she was dating the lead actor from Parenthood, so cute!), found Caitlyn Jenner's book Secrets of My Life to be super interesting (I had no idea she struggled with her identity pretty much her entire life. It was heartbreaking to read of her struggles but also joyful that she can now be her genuine self), but I really really loved the book Tell Me Three Things. This is a young adult book and I devoured it in 3 days. I could not put it down. I found the main character likeable and endearing, and the teenage romance in it was the cutest thing ever. I highly recommend this charming sweet read. I am currently reading Pupcakes a Christmas themed chick-lit novel.
