Reading Challenge: Update

So, I have not updated in awhile.  Life is a little crazy, but I have manged to reach my quarterly goal for the reading challenge...10 books in 3 months.  

Since my last update I have read:  

*  Through the Looking Glass - book more than 100 years older than you
*  Drowning Ruth - book fro Oprah's Book club
*  Love Life - book written by a celebrity

I am going to give you a brief thought on each...

Through the Looking Glass - thank goodness it was short...did not enjoy it, took me a week to read this short book.  Just too strange, not my cup of tea.

Drowning Ruth - I was really looking forward to reading this book after the other reviews,; however, I personally found it to be rather anti-climatic and would not recommend.  There was great detail and character building, but I just felt like it went no where.

Love Life - I read Rob Lowe's first book, Stories I Only Tell My Friends, and thoroughly enjoyed it. This one was just as enjoyable. Some of the other reviews felt he bounced around, I liked that as it felt like you were in a conversation...who ever stays on one subject when having a chat with a friend?  I also like his sharing about
his son leaving for college, very touching for me since my son is graduation from high school this year.  

I have already picked my next book, one by my favorite author and will fulfill the  "book that's guaranteed to bring you joy".  I will tell you about it next week.

So, what are you reading?  Any suggestions?
