A bookworm’s list

In no particular order..

Kisses from Katie

I saw a video promo for this book that had me in tears. I think this one is going on My book club’s list.

The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency

Also another one on my book club’s list

The Hunger Games

Normally, I avoid all-the-rage books like the plague {No, I will never read Twilight.. I don’t care how good it was} but this series has been highly recommended to me by trusted book-wormish friends. I also really want to see the movie, and my rule is: you have to read the book before you see the movie.

Traveling with Pomegranates

I loved Sue Monk Kidd’s The Secret Life of the Bees {the book & the movie} so I’m eager to delve into anything else she has written

Divine Comedy

Okay..honestly.. I don’t know if I will actually be able to read this. My mom & younger siblings read it & describe it as pretty brutal to get through. I recently heard a talk by Fr. Robert Barron where he frequently referenced this book and that got me really interested. While I truly doubt my ADD self can sit through the genius that is Dante, I would love to give it a try.


My sweet friend Heather mailed this book to me as an early Easter gift. I had never heard of it before but my Dad read it and said it was really amazing. I’ll be sure to read it & report back

Style, Sex & Substance

This book just looks like a fun, fresh take on the modern Catholic woman. This is another idea for my book club

Birth Matters: A Midwife's Manifesta

Ina May Gaskin fascinates me & I’d actually love to read all her books. 

The Summer of My German Soldier

This book was one my family owned and I never got around to reading. My mom recently read it & recommended it to me.

I read Hunger Games last year - loved it. Also, movie was amazing. I just finished Two Kisses For Maddy and I highly recommend that! PS - I also suggest giving in and reading Twilight. I used to be such a literary snob, having minored in Victorian Lit and Shakespeare, but a student and I made a bet (long story) and I read them. They're like brain candy. You could do it in a day. Do it, Laura!

Haha....Oh, no! Am I literary snob?! I guess I wouldn't doubt it. Thanks for the book recommendation! I want to check that one out! Hmmm, Twilight as brain candy? Perhaps I'll cave...
