The Virgin's Lover by Philippa Gregory
Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
I read this as my "re-read" for the Back to the Classics Challenge, the celebrate the Author challenge, and the 1001 Books You Must Read challenge. I am so glad I re-read this book as adult after having "read" it in high school. Clearly I didn't pay too much attention to it back then and once again, I found myself loving Hawthorne's writing.
The Trumpet of the Swan by E.B. White (with my son)
I read this for the Celebrate the Author challenge and as my "T" choice for A-Z challenge. I've been wanting to read some his books with my son and he really enjoyed this one of a swan who is different trying to make his way in the world.
We Are All Welcome Here by Elizabeth Berg
I loved this one about a young girl who's mom had polio and is paralyzed from the waist down. Her mother's determination to raise her daughter despite this is amazing and is based on a true story. Highly recommend this one!
The Silver Boat by Luanne Rice
Another author I love! I have to be honest, I had a hard time getting into this one at first but I was eventually drawn into the story of three sisters dealing with their mother's death by trying to find out what happened to their father, who had sailed to Ireland when they were children, never to be heard from again.
Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob Lowe
I could not put this one down! Maybe it's the voyeur side of me (probably since I love People Magazine!), but I enjoyed the inside look at the 80s and the stories of who Rob Lowe grew up with (among them, Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez, Sean Penn). It was a good story of how a "bad boy" found himself and happiness in the crazy world that is Hollywood. I also added The Outsiders and The Hotel New Hampshire to my Netflix queue (How did I miss these?!)
Summer of My German Soldier by Bette Greene
Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult
