This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Spring Reading Thing 2009

(Reminder: Don't miss your chance to ask me questions! One week only! Click here for details)



I recently heard about this challenge in bloggyville. Basically, you make a list of books you wish to read this Spring and cross them off as you read them. The challenge is to read as many books off your list as possible. Your list can be short or long. It's up to you!

The challenge runs from March 20th - June 20th. You can jump in anytime. Be sure to link your Spring Reading Thing list to the Mr. Linky provided on Callapidder Days.

MY LIST:

My list below is kind of short due to the fact that these are the only books I currently have on hand to read. I may add more books as I come up with more. I will keep updating this list by adding books or crossing off the ones I've finished reading. There will be a link posted on the sidebar for you to access it easily, but you can also find it by looking up the tags. And, as always, I will review these books!






Love Walked In - Marisa De Los Santos

The Secret Life of Bees - Sue Monk Kidd

Under the Tuscan Sun
- Frances Mayes

The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini

*New Books Added*

The Last Promise - Richard Paul Evans

Love in the Present Tense - Catherine Ryan Hyde




Have you read any of these books? I'd love to hear what you thought!

Now, if you excuse me, I have some reading to do...

I absolutely love The Secret Life of Bees & The Kite Runner. I never read Under the Tuscan Sun, but the movie was great!

I haven't read those yet, but I did read A thousand Splendid Suns by the same Author of The Kite Runner, and it was AWESOME!

I would love to be able to read again. For many reasons, I am unable to focus enough to read. Your post made me miss it. I love reading.

I read The Kite Runner and thought it was a great book. One that I didn't want to put down.

The Secret Life of Bees is excellent. Made me cry. I haven't seen the movie, but saw previews and it just doesn't seem to be the same.

Under the Tuscan Sun is great, I saw the movie. I am told the book is better.
