We had book group last Thursday, and I am so glad the ladies graciously allowed me to invite myself. We talked about Africa books. We decided to read love stories for February, and this is the list:
Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte, which is also a fantastic Masterpiece theatre piece from 2006 if you need something for the Netflix cue. The cover on my friend's copy says, "Just the right amount of heaving bodices," and I am inclined to agree.
Rooftops of Tehran - Mahbod Seraji, If anyone has read this link to a review in the comments or have me check your goodreads.
Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Ann Shaffer, One of a very few books I would possibly read more than once just for fun.
These is My Words - Nancy Turner (This was my suggestion. I just love the love story in it!)
Bloody Jack - L.A. Meyer, Don't ask me how this one is a romance, but it's on the list. I hear the audio recording actress is on par with Jim Dale, who read the Harry Potter books. I think it is YA.
Time Travelers Wife - Audrey Niffenegger
Outlander - Diana Gabaldon
Please leave a note of any of these that are a must read, or your favorite love story if you have one. I expect to do more reading in the immediate future because that is all I do while nursing. Five more weeks tomorrow. I have begun assembling the home birth stuff.
Also, I am going to wedding and taking the kids. Special thanks to Marie, who was the ONLY one to give me unmitigated permission to stay home and eat bonbons. I do love complaining, as I'm sure you've all noticed, so thanks for pointing out that going will include future complaining rights. Sadly, I am pretty sure I am not allowed to wear sweatpants to all of the events, which I'm sure my fellow pregnant friends would agree would be a great boon.
