Reading Corner

If it's any indication of how bad my previous book was, I've forgotten for some time now to change the book I'm currently reading on the side panel under "The Pages I'm Turnin'".

The last book I read and had listed on the side panel for quite some time was The Ten Year Nap. It was awful. So if you see it, don't bother picking it up. The characters were boring the dialogue was boring and in the end I couldn't even tell you what the plot was. But I stuck with it until the end because I have this annoying rule that once I start a book I have to finish it even if it's terrible. So that's what I did.

To be honest it kind of turned me off to reading for a few days which is especially sad because it's summertime; a season that I find provides the best opportunity for reading. So to get back in the swing of things I knew I needed a sure-bet good read. So I've picked up The Memory Keeper's Daughter. I snagged it out of my mom's stash who probably snagged it out of her sister's stash. She said was it was good and worth the time so that's that.

And speaking of which if anyone else has suggestions for good summer reads I can post the titles, authors and links in another post for all to see. I define a good summer read as a book that starts off interesting right from the first page. And I tend to do more easy-reading and less-challenging books when I'm reading during the summer. I'm constantly heading in and out of the sun during naptime so I don't have time to waste trying to remember what happened a few pages back. So if any of you know of books that fit this bill let me know in the comments!

  1. Too funny...I'm halfway through The Memory Keeper's Daughter and I read 2 pages at a time because it's so boring! I find myself daydreaming about the next day and before you know it, I'm sleeping! It's very slow but everyone keeps telling me the end is a shocker so I'm FORCING myself to read it. Someone recommended The Ten Yr Nap for my maternity/hospital stay, but I won't get that either now, per your post. I heard The Candy Girl is interesting...I might grab that one before the hospital on Thurs! (I also just finished Jesus Land and The Quickie...what a combo eh?!) Jesus Land is good..not a happy story, but interesting.
