The Help

I read a lot. I always want suggestions on new books to pick up etc. So when Samma talked about a book in one of her blog posts I picked it up at the bookstore.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett is very well written and I am not quite sure how I felt about it. All I can say is that it changed me. Not in a crazy way but in a wow so much has changed in this world in 40 years and yet I was unaware of the true amounts of change.

I say pick it up, give it a read and tell me what you think.
Also...any book suggestions? I like all kinds and my stack is getting low! :) I love Chick lit but I also love heavy reading so any suggestions would be great.

This book is on my list. I've heard a lot about it and I can't wait to get around to it. Glad to hear it had an effect on you, I hate when books leave you feeling like you wasted time.

Have you read Dream When You're Feeling Blue by Elizabeth Berg? It's a really good, quick read.

Have a great day!!!

I do really want to read this book!

I suggest: Water for Elephants - great fictional read

Just found your blog! I really enjoyed "The Help."

I suggest: "Sarah's Key" by Tatiana de Rosnay. I loved it, but it is not a light read! I'm about to finish "The Last Child" by John Hart - it's a quick read, and so far I would recommend it.
