books i read in 2009

First of all, I want to thank everyone who left comments on my last post. It helps to know that I'm not alone. I am so thankful for such wonderful friends!

So, this is a bit of a cop-out post. But, I really want to be more consistent with blogging. So, here is a list of books I read in 2009:

The Christmas Box, Richard Paul Evans
Lady Susan, Jane Austen
Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen
A Mother's Influence, Margaret D. Nadauld
Daughters of God, Russell M. Ballard
Way To Be!, Gordon B. Hinckley
The Street Sparrow, author?
Twilight, Stephenie Meyer
New Moon, Stephenie Meyer
Eclipse, Stephenie Meyer
Breaking Dawn, Stephenie Meyer

(Yeah, I finally broke down and read the Twilight series...all four in one week. Then, I read it again, to catch what I had missed. Guess you can say I'm a true-blue fan.

...Have I mentioned that I hate joining bandwagons? But this one was worth it!)

The Little Princess, Frances Hodgson Burnett
Women of Light, Jack R. Christianson
The Misunderstood Child: A Guide for Parents with Learning Disabilities, Larry B. Silver
Raising Up a Family to the Lord, Gene R. Cook
Much Ado About Nothing, William Shakespeare
Macbeth, William Shakespeare
A 5th Portion of Chicken Soup for the Soul, Jack Canfield & Mark Victor Hansen
Raising Your Spirited Child, Mary Sheedy Kurcinka
Standing for Something, Gordon B. Hinckley

If any of you have recommendations for good reads, leave a comment. I'm open for any and all suggestions!

The Hunger Games and Catching Fire. Both by Suzanne Collins

Lacey's right, you'll love the Hunger Games series. It's so addictive. I liked it better than Twilight.
Other good reads:
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak, These is My Words by Nancy Turner...if you get through all of these, let me know. I've always got other ideas.

You're amazing! You have time to read?! I guess I just take my time- outs doing other things. I read more when I was nursing. I love The Great and the Terrible series by Chris Stewart! (Only read these if you have time for 6 books!)
