Read a Good Book Lately

If you were curious to see how Miss PB's photo shoot went you can see a preview here.

Have you read any good books lately? I have been on a Dennis Lehane kick, it started with Shutter Island, which I really enjoyed, and I just finished Gone Baby, Gone. I only have three more of his books left: Prayers for Rain, Coronado, and The Given Day.  I am currently reading Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, it is not taking me long to read this one. I think I read the first book The Hunger Games in less than 2 days. Two interesting, but fairly dark books I finished in the last couple months are Sharp Objects and Lullabies for Little Criminals. If you are looking for a nice mystery with a lot of laughs check out the Spellman series by Lisa Lutz. They are a fun quick read.
There are a few nonfiction books I have been waiting to read when they come available at the library, on paperback swap, or the used book store: In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan, Master Your Metabolism by Jillian Michaels, and I'm Down by Mishna Wolff.
A few books I have not read but every one else seems to have are the Twilight Series, Eat Pray Love,  and My Sisters Keeper. You cannot make me read Twilight, I won't, the only vampires in my life are Angel and Spike.
I try to keep up my lists of books at Good Reads. I'm always up for recommendations.
Hope that was enough links for y'all.

Oh Robyn Maggie's pictures are ADORABLE! They turned out sooo cute. And of course M herself is beautiful. Very nice

The pictures are FANTASTIC!

The only book on that list that I have read is My Sister's Keeper - it was very good, as are her other novels. I am also a big fan of Chris Bohjalian, Midwives and The Law of Similars being my favorite two.

I have zero interest in Twilight either. Eat, Pray, Love is sitting on my bookshelf. I need to find some enrgy to pick it up again.

Another good read...A Thousand Splendid Suns! I loved it.
