May Accomplishments - Ammendment

I forgot that I had wanted to start posting the books that I was finishing with my monthly accomplishments. I will probably start doing them as a second post instead of in with my quilting accomplishments because not everyone will want to hear about them, but I want to keep track of the authors that I like and the books that I read for the future when I am looking for new books and authors.

These are all of the books that I finished in May:
  1. A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby - This author wrote About a Boy and I really liked the movie so I thought I would try out the book. It was different, but I like his style of writing.
  2. 2nd chance by James Patterson - I am enjoying this Women's Murder Club series.
  3. Marley & Me by John Grogan - The book was definitely better than the movie!
  4. Keeping Faith by Jodi Picoult - Jen has gotten me hooked on this author. We have been reading them together and it's fun to talk to someone who is reading the same book and get their opinions on things.
  5. The Keepsake by Tess Gerritsen
  6. Body Surfing by Anita Shreve

I love Jodi Picoult, too. I read everything she writes. My favorite author is Elizabeth Berg....she just seems to understand a woman's heart. Great list, Jill!

I loved Marley and Me too, bawled like a baby for the last half of the book. I am reading my first Jodi Piccoult book now - very good writing, just wish there were more hours in the day!

All the books sound great. I'll be interested to read Marley and Me after seeing the movie. I usually read the books before the movie. I've never read Jodi P, but after seeing the previews for My Sisters Keeper, I'm thinking I'd like her.

Jill, try Nelson DeMille. Some of his stuff gets heavy but General's Daughter, Plum Island, Gold Coast and Night Flight are good starters. Rivers of Babylon and Cathedral are hard to get through at times. Loved your newest quilt. I finished the "cooking author" book I was reading when we visited. Moving on to something else. I can never remember titles and authors ... CRS is bad!!!!
